The app also tells you how many times you’ve crossed paths with each person, meaning you quickly learn who your neighbours are (we have in the past recognised a man in my street and been unable to place him before realising we’d seen him on Bumble and we’d crossed paths 167 times).
But Tinder is definitely not the only app out there.
There are tons of dating apps out there, and though some of them have a more casual bent, there are plenty of more reliable options.
It’s all about location, but you can’t add more places to your list until you’ve visited them.
However, if your potential suitors have previously checked-in on Facebook to the same places as you, that will appear on their profiles.
Dating apps have a bad rap: They are often associated more closely with promoting casual hookups than actually connecting two gentle souls for an actual, head-over-heels, yes-yes-yes relationship.
