Lonely person dating
With nearly 50 million users, Tinder claims 12 million are finding matches each day.But can all those matches be too much of a good thing?Leslee Miller, a clinical social worker with Sugarhouse counseling said getting matches can be very addicting.
Just like a drug, swiping becomes an easy fix where users can get hooked on instant gratification.
"You have to be very careful with how you use those apps," Miller said.
Nick Garn said he originally joined Tinder and Bumble to find a girlfriend.
"I’m just looking through human Netflix right now, seeing which series I want to commit my time to next," Garn said.
SALT LAKE CITY -- You could call it a modern day love story. The only way you're allowed to message each other is if you match, by both swiping right.
It started when Janie and Chris swiped right on Tinder. It’s changing the face of dating by creating thousands of options all at your fingertips.
"Just don’t say that we met on Tinder and the first thing her dad says to me is, ‘hey you’re not one of those Tinder boys are you,’" Chris George said. A meaningful relationship is what most people are hoping for when they sign up for apps like Tinder and Bumble. You build a profile with photos and basic information, like age and job description. When a picture pops up, you swipe right if you're interested, swipe left if you're not.
Today the story of how they met has become a familiar one. Something unique and I guess ours is just a little more 21st century unique," Chris George said.
According to Pew Research Center, online dating among millennials has nearly tripled over the past two years and it's doubled among Americans ages 55 to 64.
