Dating with Lumia

Let your Windows Phone be your matchmaker for a romantic Friday night date.

Finding that perfect life partner can be a magical journey — and a lot of time and work. If you’re looking for love this weekend, speed up the process a little by letting Lumia play matchmaker.


Try one of these relationship apps for Windows Phone to help you find that man or woman of your dreams:


Billing itself as “the most trusted dating service,” eHarmony is also one of the most popular, claiming to be responsible for nearly 4 percent of marriages in the U.S.

The app itself is free and offers basic access to the service such as setting up an account and completing eHarmony’s relationship questionnaire. Subscribing (starting at $19.99/month) unlocks more features, including full mobile access, seeing your matches’ photos, and sending and receiving mail.

6tin and Timber

The fastest and most no-frills ways of meeting singles online may be 6tin and Timber–two different free client apps for the popular Tinder matchmaking service.

Sign up using your Facebook account and start perusing possible dates in your area. See a match? Hit the heart icon and, if the object of your affection likes you back, start chatting and set up a date. The two apps are very similar, but 6tin supports both English and French.

POF – Free Online Dating

POF (also known as Plenty of Fish) claims to have three million active daily users around the world and its free app supports five languages: English, Dutch, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

The dating service is free and allows you to post a profile, find eligible singles, and contact them for dates. Upgrading your membership (for an additional fee) lets you upload more images of yourself, unlock extended profiles, experience the app ad-free, and more.


The most popular dating app for gay men on Lumia is Scruff. Free to use, the app has recently been re-launched for Windows Phone 8.1 with Cortana integration, pinnable profiles, and access to Scruff Pro, which offers unlimited messaging, browsing, and searches for an additional fee. Search by location or profile location and discover matches using the “Would you meet?” rating.


Tired of fake accounts? India’s premier dating app verifies each profile by authenticating identification and use of third-party services like Facebook and LinkedIn to vet its members.

This free app matches you with like-minded singles by identifying similar interests and then gives you the option to “like” or “hide” them from view. Match “likes” to chat with a potential suitor.
