The App: Klique The Pitch: "Meet New People, With Friends By Your Side."What we think: Like almost every other dating app out there, Klique lets you create a profile and swipe for nearby matches. After you start a chat with a match you can both invite friends to join the chat and make plans as a group.

), but few people on the app actually started or responded to conversations, which was frustrating.
Other users will express interest and you can sort through the profiles to pick the lucky winner.
Or, find a date in your feed that you'd like to go on.
While you won't really end up with Chris Evans, Jake Gyllenhaal, or Chris Pratt, you could get pretty close.

It's a fun idea and one that works relatively well, give or take some facial hair.
