Luxy caters to well-off, well-educated and affluent singles. The app is meant for wealthy people as over 60% of users make more than $200,000 a year. Many rich people are hesitant to use traditional dating apps for fear of being taken advantage of, so Luxy is a great solution.

To use Luxy, you must be voted in by members of the opposite sex. This ensures that you will be a good fit for existing members. Your approval tends to be based on appearance and wealth.

#2 - eHarmony (Android; iOS) is one of the best dating sites in Arlington for long-term relationships

eHarmony is extremely popular here and has an amazing track record of helping Arlington locals find long-term partners by using matching algorithms. This app does the best job of matching you up with compatible potential mates that we've seen.

You don't have to scroll for hours. The app does all of the tough work for you. Of course, you might not make a perfect connection outside of the algorithms. Usually, it works like magic. The toughest part is answering all of the questions. It's important because this is how they match you with other single people. You can build chemistry before you even meet.

If you're serious about finding long-term partners this is the site for you.

What we don’t like about it

Silver Singles top features

#3 -  Silver Singles is for mature singles (Android; iOS)

Silver Singles is one of the best dating sites in Arlington for 50+ singles looking for love. Most popular dating sites are full of young people, making it harder for the older crowd to meet people their age. Silver Singles gives them an easy option to find other singles their age.

Users are matched based on their answers to the signup personality test. This helps ensure that your matches are people you have something in common with.

Why Silver Singles is one of the best dating sites in Arlington

  • Matches will be personality-based
  • You receive daily match recommendations
  • Everyone is over 50

What we don’t like about it

  • The free version is limited
  • Filling out the personality test can be time consuming



AFF on different devices

#4 - AFF is the easiest way to find a casual thing

AFF (which has a great free trial) should be your first choice when you're not looking for a relationship but still want some fun in the bedroom. We've tried a lot of different apps for this (most are awful) and only a couple have proven to work over and over. Tinder is great if you're under 25 but once you get beyond that AFF has shown the best results out of any dating site in Arlington we've tried, especially for guys.

One of the things we've really liked about this app is that they do a really good job of helping you find EXACTLY what you're looking for. Everyone on this site is looking for the same thing so you can save a LOT of time that you would waste on other sites. If you're 25+ and want to take someone home this is your app.

Why you should try AFF

  • They have a massive number of users on their app (over 50 million)
  • We’ve seen guys have the best success using it, especially those who aren’t super good looking and didn’t do well on Tinder
  • It’s very straightforward and easy to use

What we don’t like about it

  • Many users can only access via web app
  • The app is a little dated and not as polished as some others
  • Sometimes people are a little TOO upfront with what they want
You Can Try AFF Free!
If you're just looking for a fling or more short-term fun you need to try out AFF's free trial. We've spent months and months testing out the alternatives (more than 100 other sites) and haven't found anything that gives most guys more options and better results. Give it a shot!


Hinge top features

#5 - Hinge can get the conversation started (Android; iOS)

Hinge is a great dating app that mixes getting to know someone for their looks and personality. Many apps focus too heavily on either aspect. But Hinge’s profiles are set up so you can decide on a match based on both. As an app that has matched up so many couples, no doubt it’s one of the best dating apps in Arlington to date.

Users must upload six pictures and answer a few conversation prompts. Then to match with someone, you have to like or comment on a specific picture or prompt. This ensures that users are actually looking through each other’s profiles instead of endlessly swiping on them based on pictures alone.

Why Hinge is one of the best Arlington dating apps

  • You can video chat or call your matches directly on Hinge
  • Hinge is available for free with optional paid features
  • You receive a daily match recommendation

Why Hinge may not be the best

  • You are limited to ten likes a day with the free version
  • If you only want to swipe through photos, this app’s not for you



Facebook dating

#6 - Facebook Dating is perfect for Facebook users (Android; iOS)

Facebook Dating is a great addition to the most popular social media platform, Facebook. You must have a Facebook account to set up your dating profile. But doing so is super easy as you can simply transfer your information over.

Once your profile is set up, you can easily search for matches and message anyone you like the look of. Facebook will also provide you with match recommendations to help you save time. Don’t worry about seeing your Facebook friends on your feed as Facebook weeds them out. This is why we think Facebook Dating, while new, is one of the best Arlington datnig apps out there!

Why we love it

  • Your Facebook friends will not show up on your dating feed
  • Facebook users can easily set up a dating profile with their existing information
  • You receive daily match suggestions

What we don’t like about it

  • There doesn’t need to be mutual interest for members to message you
  • You can only access Facebook dating on the app



Tinder top features

#7 - Tinder is one of the best Arlington dating apps for young people (Android; iOS)

Tinder is a reflection of how many young singles enjoy instant gratification. All it takes to potentially match with someone is a swipe in the right direction. So if you want a fun and fast way to land a date, Tinder is the app for you. Of course, as with any other dating app, you’ll also need to entice other singles. Add a great photo and a witty bio and you’re good to go! If you don’t have either, then you might have a tough time scoring matches here.

Why Tinder is one of our favorite apps

  • The dating pool is huge with over 50 million active users
  • There are tons of young people on Tinder
  • It’s undeniably one of the most popular and best dating apps in Arlington for younger singles

What we don’t like about it

  • People who meet on Tinder are less likely to meet up in person
  • The app can be quite shallow as pictures are heavily emphasized



Screenshots from BlackPeopleMeet

#8 - Black People Meet is perfect for Black singles (Android; iOS)

Black People Meet helps singles in the Black community meet each other. Dating outside of your race and culture is more common these days. But many singles prefer to date someone who understands their culture. This is what Black People Meet has over all the other general dating apps. Keep in mind that this is an app that tends to be more popular among Black singles in their 30s and 40s. While you might find a fling here, it tends to cater more to singles who want a relationship.

Why Black People Meet is one of the best dating apps in Arlington

  • Users can write short essays in their bios so it’s easy to get to know someone
  • Search filters are detailed, making it easy to search for matches
  • You can reach out to members in a variety of ways

What we don’t like about it

  • Not everyone on the app is Black
  • There are no matchmaking features



HIly top features

#9 - Hily is the dating app of the future (Android; iOS)

While Tinder is all about swiping and eHarmony has a sophisticated algorithm to find matches for you, Hily is a mix of both. When you swipe on someone, Hily’s AI takes note of your choices and presents you with singles you may be compatible with. Sure, it’s a little freaky, but it increases your chances of finding someone you’ll actually like. Add to that the fact that Hily also has great features like video calls, ice breakers and compatibility checks. Any wonder why we say it’s one of the best dating apps in Arlington?

Why Hily is great

  • Users must link their Facebook or Snapchat account and submit a live photo to ensure everyone on the app is legit
  • You will receive personalized matches based on interests and taste
  • Hily uses artificial intelligence that filters out inappropriate messages and pictures

What we don’t like about it

  • The free version doesn’t have a ton of features
  • Anyone can message you, you don’t need to have mutual interest
