Aye, no clue at all as to why this shit was trending in BBC news. It was the number one story in most popular last night so can only assume it is the American traffic causing it to rank. Don't know who they are and don't care.

blimey you lot had your head in the sands?

Tinder is an app a bit like Grindr (for the gay) showing close willing dates/hookups.

it amused me that a company that based its business on promoting random sex is about to be ripped apart by sex.

I didn't think Tinder was quite the analogue of Grindr... more about finding people in your locale to date rather than simply find someone in the same bar wanting a quickie?

Does it work? If it's as crap as dating sites, think I'll just go for the quicker option of sticking the phone up my a*.

Its more than that. You have an app on your phone and it tells you how far away your date is. You get pictures and if you like, and they like you, then you can meet.

Guy who sits next to me is a stud - he has 2 profiles setup for this.

Women basically want a long term relationship. The guys try to get as much NSA fun as they can. The old story - but a new twist on it.

On vibrate then ask your wife to call you?

tinder increases the strike rate and reduces the need for dutch courage.

you can kiss 100 frogs without saying a word so finding your princess is easy.
