Tinder and seven other dating apps teens are using


Teens are also using Tinder. (Dreamstime)

When you ask a couple how they met, it's pretty common for them to answer, "On the Internet". So, it's no surprise that online dating has trickled down to teens. 

And though most opt for Snapchat or Instagram to widen their social circles, some are curious enough to try one of the many messaging apps that promise to help them "make new friends". While these apps are designed more for casual communication than are the mainstream fee-based dating services such as Match and OkCupid, they make it super easy to text, video-chat, and share pics with strangers.
