10 years of Tinder: How has the app changed the way we date?
Swiping on your phone to find love, lust, friendship and anything in between is such an integral part of life, it’s hard to imagine a time before dating apps.
Tinder celebrates its 10-year anniversary on September 12, marking a decade since it seismically shifted the way we date.
Dating – once seen as the reserve of IRL meetings or getting set up by your friends – is now firmly in the online world. According to relationship science expert Paul Brunson, the way Tinder has changed romance has “quite a bit of negative, as well as quite a bit of good”.
A new world of possibilities
Tinder has “made online dating mainstream, and that’s something I’m really happy to see”, says Brunson.
