Verdict: Paktor is still struggling to attract the number of users Tinder has; however, it might be a more rewarding prospect given some time.

That said, the process is a bit involved: we signed up and were told to wait for two weeks while they found a match. All in all, it has a lot more moving parts than just swiping and hooking up, but the pay-off - when it finally happens - promises to be much more rewarding.

Still, as with all tech trends, the mechanisms of online romance are constantly changing: meeting a lover on OKCupid seems as outdated today as making a friend on My Space. With some help from our serial-dating friends, we check out the latest generation of dating apps and see what all the fuss is about.

Grouvly is the Hong Kong-based version of a dating app model that, with apps like Grouply, has proved extremely popular in the West.

If Grouvly is the Asian answer to Grouply, then Paktor is the Asian answer to Tinder.

The Singapore-based company - paktor is Hokkien for going on a date - has added a few features that distinguish the app from its most obvious competitor: you can apply filters for height, job and education etc. The company that runs Paktor also has a bespoke dating service called Gai Gai, with a focus on Southeast Asia, so you can get right to a match.
