A ‘chat’ service means you don’t have to give out your number. You’re likely to be invited out for a drink rather than just round for sex.

App 7: Down Lowdown: Down is an updated version of Bang With Friends.It finds your Facebook friends and friends of your Facebook friends.You can choose those you’d want to date and those you’d prefer just to do the dirty with.
