Sick of swiping and matching with people who you have nothing in common with? Don’t worry, we know the feeling. That’s why we’ve decided it’s time to shake up the dating game and match people who share the same interests and lifestyle. I know right?! We’re so clever! (Or at least our mums say so…)

Huggle is all about connecting people who go to the same places. Whether you’re looking to find someone who trains at the gym 24/7 or who loves sushi just as much as you do, Huggle gives you ultimate control. You pick how many places you want to have in common and whether you want to find dates, friends or both. YAY!

Huggle works by automatically checking you in to the locations you visit and then we show you people who are into the same things as you. Either swipe through people’s profiles or tap on one of your places to discover who else goes there.

View their profile, swipe to match or send a message.

Good concept but needs improvement

abbs 🙈✨

I downloaded Huggle yesterday alongside Bumble and Tinder as I’m fed up of being single. I’m currently a university student so obviously my locations are all over the place. I really like the interface of the app and how easy it is to use. It’s also nice to see who has visited you as well to see who is just lurking! There are definitely places where it needs improvement though. One of these is the matches it provides you. I keep getting people match me who are from Scotland and the North whereas I’m in Southampton (and I’ve set my profile as that) which is pretty much as South as you can go! So the location feature definitely needs improving perhaps in a way similar to Tinder’s where it only shows you matches in your area that go to your common places? Also, you need to find a way to make sure that matches that you haven’t swiped right on can’t message you. I keep getting messaged by men who I explicitly swiped left on which is annoying as I only really want to talk to genuine matches. If these were fixed, I would be giving it 5 stars for sure.

Great concept

Paperclip is a spam

I prefer huggle over other networking / social apps like tinder or bumble because it lets you filter people based on what they’re looking for. I’m in a relationship and my partner felt comfortable with me using it because of the ‘just for friends’ feature.

The fact that you can only make an account through Facebook doesn’t bother me, but I know it does for lots of people. Still, I think an app that lets you meet people based on having places in common, rather than just swiping faces deserves a try.

Huggle definitely deserves a better rating. But the app definitely needs some more work, hopefully the developers can work towards making it better in future updates.

Hey! Thanks so much for your amazing review. We're so glad you enjoy using Huggle - you're the best!

Flaws and won't let me delete!


I feel this app should stop advertising until it sorts issues. I tried adding my favourite places and it "couldn't find" any of them. Even when I'd just typed Lo... it already had decided "nope no places like that" I tried typing Broadway Market and it said not a place but then Broadway Market was on their list of suggested places? Bit pointless when you can't actually connect it with places you visit.
Also furious that just now when I try to delete it won't let me. I followed the instructions in the help centre which say "delete account" is an option under "sign out" in settings but the option is NOT there. Cannot delete my account. Can "hide" it but I don't want to. I want to delete it.

Hello and thanks for your review. The search bar in 'My Places' will help you to search for places that have already been added, but not to add new places currently. Places will be added automatically as you visit them, or you can import them. If you want to drop us a message using the in app feedback form I can help you delete your profile!
