Tinder receives a lot of flak, but there’s no denying it’s facilitated the most hookups and dates in the recent past.
Speaking of which, hating on tinder is like hating on the entire online dating scene. For starters, that’s the app that’s managed to attract the highest count of sign ups. Basically, someone signs up with their Facebook accounts and the app will automatically collect their photos from Facebook and geographically match them with the people closer by.
And in the event that someone strikes you as a possible date, you can go ahead and swipe right to accept them or swipe left to reject their suggestion. And where there’s mutual interest, or let’s say the other person also right-swipes you, the two of you will be connected and allowed to chat and learn more about each other before deciding what’s next.
