If you’re already an avid user of dating apps, you’ll know that most that advertise themselves as free actually have some paying options. And you often discover this after you’ve signed up – what could be more frustrating!

Of course, these applications may advertise themselves as free because they can all be downloaded for free, and there’s no charge for creating a profile or for certain essential features.

But are there any dating apps that are 100% free, with no paid features? The answer is yes. There aren’t many, but they do exist.


To start with, this little nugget we’ve discovered. 1tense (pronounced intense) is a French dating app that has opened its doors to users all over the world.

The app is aimed solely at singles looking for a serious, lasting relationship. If you’re just curious and looking for a one-night stand, don’t sign up!

In addition to being totally free, the profiles are of excellent quality, thanks to the work of our moderators. When you register, the application asks for 2 photos to verify that you’re a real user. Other checks are also carried out.

But how can a dating app be free and still have quality profiles? Because it’s financed simply by advertising and has low running costs.

And yes, that’s the downside of 1tense: for the moment, the app is only available on Android, and its features are basic: profile search, instant messaging and that’s it! But at least it works, and it’s free.

Facebook Dating

You’re all familiar with the Facebook social network, but did you know that the application has its own dating feature?

Only available on smartphones, you can activate it by going to the menu, then press “see more” and you’ll see a “dating” button. From here you can create your account.

Facebook Dating will then suggest singles near you. There’s no personalized search – Facebook takes care of everything. It’s up to you whether or not you like the profile. If there’s a reciprocal like, you can start chatting.

As you can see, the functionalities are very basic, but Facebook Dating has the advantage of being 100% free, with no paid options. The only drawback is that few users are aware of this feature… But it’s worth a try!
