Everyone is obsessed with “compatibility” when it comes to finding love. Personality tests, horoscopes and astrology are not only giving people something to learn and believe about themselves, but provide a glimpse into why others act the way they do, too. So kewl, right?

Developed by NASA rocket scientist Rashied Amini, Nanaya goes deeper into things – like how you approach single life, what romantic relationship types work best for you, and even which locations statistically have the most compatible people for you.

5. The XConfession App
Similar to Spicer, feminist adult-film director Erika Lust’s app is basically Tinder for sexual acts – although it specifically focuses on kinks and fantasies. And again, you only see what you both swiped right on, which creates a safe place to discuss what you’re both interested in trying.
