The App: Huggle The Pitch: "Discover people who go to the places you do."What we think: The more places you visit, the better your chances of meeting someone on Huggle.After you go somewhere, the app will ask you to confirm that you did, in fact, visit that location (the geolocation was off a few times, but you can easily correct it).In a perfect world, fewer overall matches would mean that the matches you do get lead to deep, meaningful connections and wonderful dates.

), but few people on the app actually started or responded to conversations, which was frustrating.

Plus, there weren't very many users for each location.

Why not just make plans with your match to go out and agree that you'll both invite friends to come along? It takes all the endless swiping out of your hands and lets your friends — who know what you like and can be more objective — do all the leg work.

That way, you can save time messaging online and get to what matters: an in-person interaction. On the flip side, it's fun to match friends with people you think are the right fit. Of course, after you've matched your friends, or they've matched you, the conversation is in the dater's hands.

So, if there are red flags that you can identify ahead of time through messaging in other apps, you won't get that here.

Still, the concept is an interesting one and a nice change from the exhausting back-and-forth of arranging a date.The app's latest update includes a new "Lookalikes" section where you can narrow down the profiles you see based on which users share a celeb doppelgänger.It's a fun idea and one that works relatively well, give or take some facial hair.However, beyond some gaming icons that people can use to express themselves there doesn't seem to be anything that makes this app specifically for "geeks", beyond the fact that it calls itself the "dating app for geeks."Nevertheless, it helps weed out ghosting by requiring users to respond to matches who message and want to meet you.Plus, an embedded tool for picking a local meet-up spot makes it easier to plan an in person rendezvous.Then, you'll see other users who also visited that spot.
