The following list includes five geo-location apps for romance-seekers on the go.

One of the earlier GPS-powered social networks, Brightkite isn’t a “dating” app per se, but rather, introduces local users on a basic level.

Brightkite uses participants’ current locations to connect people, allowing them to chat and possibly meet up.

The network has been heralded as a great way to meet new people, find a date or connect with locals while traveling.

While online spaces and communities were once seen to transcend geography, the ubiquity of location-aware mobile devices means that today’s online interactions are deeply intertwined with offline places and relationships.

Systems such as online dating applications for meeting nearby others provide novel social opportunities, but can also complicate interaction by aggregating or “co-situating” diverse sets of individuals.Often this aggregation occurs across traditional spatial or community boundaries that serve as cues for self-presentation and impression formation.This paper explores these issues through an interview study of Grindr users.More of a small startup compared to its and Ok Cupid competition, Meet Moi may not boast as large an audience, but its select participation may actually work in its favor.The company’s goal is to “strip down dating to what's essential — the introduction.” By showing you nearby singles who meet your dating criteria, Meet Moi hopes to lead you to a real-life connection.Once you've joined, the company’s technology updates your location in real time, helping to introduce you to great people nearby.
