And if you’re all too familiar with the perils of Tinder, we’ve charted the 12 most soul-destroying things about internet dating. It finds your location using GPS, then uses your Facebook information to create your profile but don’t worry – nothing about Tinder will ever be posted to Facebook.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.
