Dating Apps to Win Your Shot at Love While on Assignment


Being a travel nurse or healthcare worker has its benefits. But it can also be a bit lonely if you’re on assignment in a strange town away from friends for months on end.

Whether you’re in search of your significant other or just want to grab a coffee with a local, dating apps have paved the way for interpersonal connection. While there are a ton of different apps available, they each offer unique and exclusive features.

So, which service will you choose to help you find the one? The information below provides some of the best apps available for Android and iOS to put you back into the dating life. Check these out – and good luck!


XO is a solid dating app, but with one big difference: Instead of the usual corny pickup lines and awkward first chats, you and your match play a fun game together, which allows you to get to know each other in a much more natural way. There are a number of icebreakers available, including drawing and word games. You can also share funny results on social media, which helps to immediately introduce your new amour into your social circles.

Facebook Dating

Already a Facebook member? Great! The big advantage of using Facebook as your dating platform is that it already knows an awful lot about you, and while that’s a bit creepy, that data is used to refine your dating choices. To try it out, tap on the Menu icon on the upper-right side of your Facebook app. From there, just tap the Dating option — though you may need to tap See More to find it. Tap on Get Started, and you’ll be taken through several steps to set up your profile.


Many dating sites offer a one-size-fits-all, quiz-based experience. But Zook is different. Instead of taking a one-time snapshot of who you are, Zoosk offers a more personalized experience in online dating. Zoosk’s unique SmartPick Behavioral Matchmaking technology is constantly learning from the actions of over 25 million members in order to deliver better matches in real-time. You won’t have to go through hundreds of profiles to find a connection because Zoosk is constantly updating matches to fit your romantic preferences.

Silver Singles

SilverSingles is an exclusive online dating site focused on creating connections between singles over 50 for friendship, love, and marriage. The site uses intelligent matchmaking and an in-depth personality questionnaire to suggest compatible matches to its members. SilverSingles is extremely easy to use, making it a great option for older singles who don’t have much experience in the world of online dating. It’s also very secure.


First launched in 1995, Match is one of the best dating apps if you’re looking for something a little more than a hookup or holiday romance. During the coronavirus pandemic, it added a hotline to its dating experts, making it easier to get answers to all your dating questions. You can even sign up for video coaching, so when you’re ready to get back out there and date in person, you’ll be more successful, thanks to video coaching topics like how to message people, how to prepare for a real first date, or how to flirt with someone during the lockdown.
