Cons of dating someone older
Part of the reason for this according to founder Justin Mateen, is that mobile phones – and smartphones in particular - have become so ubiquitous.
“Mobile phones have become an extension of who we are,” he tells The Huffington Post.
The app is free to download, and only takes a few seconds to install.
It’s become a part of TV shows about single people, including Girls and The Mindy Kaling Project.
As The Huffington Post noted, Tinder has become so popular “it is now a verb.” Part of its appeal is the fact that Tinder is not a lonely endeavor like online dating can be, where you sit in front of a computer sorting through profiles and creating your own.
But plenty of women and men are both gravitating to this app, so its appeal is only growing.
Tinder and mobile apps are here to stay, and an important part of the new dating landscape.
