Since the launch of Tinder back in 2012, and with people bored of long drawn out profiles and endless messaging back and forth on traditional dating sites, there is no denying that dating apps are now the go-to method if you want to meet someone online these days.
And whether it’s something deep and meaningful you’re after or a hassle-free hook up, there’s a dating app for you.
It’s super quick to join – you simply upload some photos and an optional bio, set your age and distance preferences, and away you go, swiping left or right on potential suitors.Between matching with someone, completing the obligatory ''is this person a stalker?' chat, and finally arranging to meet up, it's not uncommon for one or both parties to lose interest along the way. No longer is it considered sad or weird to say you first met your partner digitally, a shift to the mainstream largely down to the success of one app: Tinder.Launched back in 2012, it burned into the spotlight and never swiped back, becoming a fixture on Home screens all over the world.
