Tinder is one of the most popular apps (and is certainly the most popular dating app) in the world, and for good reason. It is used by over 50 million people who collectively swipe roughly a billion times a day in order to match with a potential life partner… or to find someone to have casual sex with – but who’s judging?
There really is someone for everyone on Tinder.

And yes, people do like to find fault with the app, but it is a pretty efficient way to find someone you are attracted to and someone you might like to date based on their profile.
Since it was launched back in 2012, it has brought millions of people together, some of whom have even gone on to marry and start families.
That’s not to say the app is not without its problems. For one thing, catfishing is something that many people who use online dating are still pretty wary of.
However, another issue is more specifically to do with Tinder itself.
As you probably already know, to eliminate a potential match you swipe left, to take a chance on them you swipe right. But with a collective yet undeniably astonishing billion swipes per day, swiping in the wrong direction is pretty inevitable. In fact, I’m going to go ahead and say it has almost certainly happened to every user of the popular dating app.
Often people on the app don’t meet your particular standards, so you’re forced to swipe left continuously. Then in the hope to eliminate all your rejects as quickly possible so that you can finally land on someone decent, you become a little overzealous.
