Singles should take the time to see what different dating apps offer, she says.

Spira leads a Los Angeles-based Mobile Dating Boot Camp, helping singles of all levels use mobile dating apps. "As with any social networking site or dating site, critical mass is important," Spira says.

Right now, more than 40 million singles use top online personals platforms such as and e Harmony as well as niche dating websites to find love. More and more, connected singles are using dating apps to improve their chances of meeting that special someone.

In some cases, it's only a few minutes after virtually chatting, thanks to location-based features.

"If you think you’re not tech-savvy enough to download a dating app, think again," Laurie Davis, founder of e Flirt Expert and author of Love At First Click: The Ultimate Guide to Online Dating (releasing in February by Simon & Schuster) tells Mashable.

Having gone on a couple of disappointing dates, I thought this was a great idea.

The only thing in question was what this application would look like.

This process would eliminate the majority of candidates without a single forced conversation, saving precious time and sparing me countless uncomfortable moments. I wouldn’t feel the least bit guilty sending a form letter that read, “After reviewing your application, I have decided that we’re not a strong romantic fit.

Thank you for your interest.” It’s much harder to take personally than, “You’re a great guy, but I’m just not that into _______________ (programmers/Young Republicans/carnies).”Completing an “Application to Date Me” should be standard practice.

"The initial intention to meet focuses on fun, but that doesn’t mean that things can’t turn serious later as your relationship develops," Davis says.

As much as mobile dating apps are about the now, it's also important to note that if the notifications and constant messaging get overwhelming, it's okay to take a break.

Position-Shift allows people to shift their public geolocation to protect their privacy and security while on a smart-phone or social network.

It enables mobile users to choose who knows where they are and when, giving them full control of their desired privacy.

So you are the one who knows the whole truth about the person you are dealing with.
