Match is a popular dating site, but it might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to dating games. In the case of Match, the game aspects come in the matching process. If you like to bring a little game action to your dating life, swipe right on your Top Picks and see where Match takes you.

2. Zoosk

Zoosk got its start as a Facebook app, so it should come as no surprise that the social media dating platform brings a bit of gaming to its matchmaking process. In the Carousel, you get the option to review a set of matches that Zoosk recommends. You review the pictures one at a time and vote “yes,” “no,” or “maybe,” and Zoosk helps you take things from there. It’s like virtual speed dating, with a much better chance of a follow-up conversation.

3. Lantern

In a world where dating apps can feel like a meat market, Lantern sets singles up to have meaningful virtual experiences instead. The dating app uses a choose-your-own adventure format to steer singles toward their ultimate happily-ever-after with another app user. The immersive narratives and questions help users discover themselves and each other.

4. Tinder

Tinder builds the game aspects into the app itself. The original swipe-based matching platform uses similar controls to several phone games, except instead of catching Pokemon or cutting up fruit, you’re choosing who you might connect with in real life.

5. Badoo

Badoo used games and quizzes as part of its strategy to pull users in when the dating platform launched, so it’s no surprise that they roll out new gamified features from time to time. Games like “Would You Rather” help to steer potential matches to each other, giving you something to talk about with your new connections and results to show off. Personality quizzes and other games come and go on the platform, so it’s worth checking it out regularly.

From picking up as many girls as you can to finding your true love before you get trapped inside a dream world forever, these five games provide all the thrills men are looking for.

9. IMVU

IMVU puts users in a virtual world, with an avatar that can be as accurate as you wish. The 3D online game takes the pressure off, making it easy to meet people and get to know them in an entirely simulated world. You can explore different areas, join in on virtual games, and find the right person without ever leaving home. Users have even been known to bring their real-life weddings to the IMVU virtual world.

10. Katawa Shoujo

Visual novels are undeniably popular and represent one of the top categories on Steam. Katawa Shoujo adds spicy erotic content for the men who play it. The story contains five potential narrative lines and follows the main character, Hisao Nakai, through romantic elements of his dramatic story.

The game combines mystery with romantic elements for an engaging experience.

15. Lovers Date Night

Lovers Date Night takes a slightly different approach to most virtual dating games, in that instead of being courted, you help orchestrate the perfect date night, down to makeup, decor, location, and events. Bring your fantasies to virtual life and see how the date plays out.

18. DOWN

DOWN puts things in terms any gamer can appreciate, by building the game into the app itself: Are you down for a hookup, or down for dating? The app is available through Google Play and the App Store, and while it requires Facebook credentials to sign up, it doesn’t post to your social media account. Read our full review here.

20. ChatRoulette

ChatRoulette is a game all on its own. The online chat website pairs random people from around the world for a spontaneous chatting experience.

Rewind your story to change a choice you made, share the choose-your-own-adventure story, or start all over again as many times as you like.

24. Love Sucks: Night One

Mystic Messenger takes the best aspects of a dating sim and brings them to your phone, playing out more or less in real time.
