Online dating offers approach chance

Every good — and bad — Tinder date is an experience worth having, even if it might not seem like it in the moment.

Even if someone’s bio comes across as generic and boring, chances are they can still offer something slightly more exciting in person. Why would you want to pass up the chance to amass a ton of terrible dating stories?

Summer is here, the festivals are coming, and if you’re looking for a muddy fling that lasts no longer than three days then Tinder can help you find the perfect music-loving tent buddy.

A survey by u Switch showed that nearly one in five of us will be getting our dating app game on during a festival, which is a staggering 2.5 million millennials swiping their way through the crowds.

My call to action is that you download some sort of dating app, just for laughs and giggles.

But why would this make people think twice about swiping right? If you’re happily coupled up, you’ve probably helped your single girlfriends swipe through the reams of desirable – and not so desirable – potential dates.

Dating expert Dr Jessica Carbino, who studied the findings for Tinder, explained that it’s all to do with being able to see the eyes of a potential partner – something which is crucial to finding someone attractive or not. Either way, you Research shows that there are 50 million active users on Tinder who check their accounts 11 times per day and spend an average of 90 minutes per day on the app. When it first came onto the scene, it was used more as a hook-up/no strings sex app because it finds you potential matches based on their proximity to you. 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.

But what is going to make a potential hook-up banish you into the abyss of the left swipe?

According to a new study by Tinder, wearing glasses in your profile photos will reduce your chances of a right swipe. Instead of having specs appeal, wearing glasses could reduce the chances of finding ‘true love’ by 12 per cent, which is a pretty substantial percentage for something we had never really considered before.
