Love me Tinder: How the worldwide dating phenomenon is changing relationships
But what makes it so appealing has also left some feeling rejected or lost in virtual relationships
On a quiet evening in a southside pub in Dublin, Zach is talking about his use of Tinder. The 29-year-old is trying to remember how many women he has dated via the app. “I’ve no idea,” the handsome musician says eventually, “20 to 30?” That seems like a lot, doesn’t it? He shrugs. “That’s from over two years of being on Tinder. If you don’t buy a ticket, you can’t win the Lotto.”
