    They say there's plenty of fish in the sea, but for whatever reason, the sea of dating apps appears to be lacking plenty. With the meteoric rise and virality of apps like Tinder, Grindr, and the ever-popular OkCupid, it would appear the pool of smartphone dating is a small one. Fortunately, that is far from the truth.

    The pool of prospective dates and bed buddies is larger than a five-block radius. (Though, let's be real here, the GPS location services of many apps are sketchy at best.) There are apps for all kinds of sexualities ranging from casual hookups to specific fetishes. Beardizers? There's an app for that. You want to casually drop a line (and a wink) to a Facebook "friend"? Go for it — heck, why not do it anonymously while you're at it; there's an app for that, too.

    So, while your friends and officemates giggle and quietly swipe left and right on that other app, you can smile proudly to yourself knowing you've found love (or lust) in a rather not-hopeless place. And, hey, there's no shame if you're just looking for the latter; there's obviously an app for that, too.
