Considering what type of person you’re looking for is also important. If you’re specifically looking for an LGBT+ friendly experience, apps like Her or Chappy can provide you with a safe space to look for love. Perhaps you’re only looking for someone in a specific age range, certain lifestyle, or professional status.

EliteSingles is an exclusive dating app that matches you with other people looking for intelligence, commitment, and a safe dating experience. EliteSingles understands that being serious about dating isn’t about age as much as finding the right person to begin sharing experiences with. This app pairs like-minded people together, so you don’t have to worry about getting attached to someone only to find out you want different things.

Another app that considers what type of person you’re looking for is OkCupid. You can choose an age range, gender, and interests that help narrow down potential matches. This app also has you answer several questions and it uses this to matches you with people based on a Match/Enemy percentage. On OkCupid, you swipe through other profiles, and if you don’t match, they can’t send you a message. This has cut down on the number of unwanted messages, preventing you from wasting any time.

With the huge amount of options when it comes to dating apps, thinking about the type of person you want will help narrow it down. If you’re already on a website with an entire user base of people with similar interests or backgrounds, it can help streamline the dating process and match you with someone faster.

  • Paris Hilton not only lives in a mansion, she also built a doghouse mansion for her Chihuahua. It's 300 square feet and includes air conditioning and heating. It comes decked out with designer furniture, a chandelier, a pink paint job, second-floor balcony, and enclosed "yard." It's not enough for you to live in luxury. Your dog must, as well.
  • After her role as First Lady came to an end, Jackie Kennedy went into the publishing business. She became an associate editor at Doubleday and worked mostly on autobiographies. In fact, she was one of two original editors for Michael Jackson's 2009 autobiography Moonwalk, a #1 New York Times bestseller.
  • Jackie Kennedy is famous for redecorating and renovating the interior of the White House. Actually, on just her first day, she ordered $50,000 in changes for new rooms for the children and upgrades to the kitchen. She later hosted a tour of the White House for CBS News which was viewed by 56 million people and won her an Emmy Award.
  • When Rihanna debuted her famous red locks in 2010 (around the same time she was featured on Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie"), she started a red-hair trend. Over the next twelve months, she changed her hairstyle 13 times—more than once a month! But that came at a pricey cost. Sources say the annual price tag came out to $1,168,000 on just her hair.
  • Jennifer Aniston's star-defining role on friends started a hair craze in the 90s that even lasted into the early 2000s. Called "The Rachel," Aniston's shoulder-length haircut had grown-out bangs and highlights styled to perfection. A hairdresser in Detroit noted that at the peak of its popularity, 40% of her business was devoted to recreating "The Rachel." Too bad that it was notoriously difficult to maintain on your own at home.
