For as much as everyone wants to fall in love (and get laid), first dates have a pretty bad rap. Probably because they're such a high-risk, high-reward proposition; they have the potential to either fill your life with magic or make you regret ever leaving the house.

If you regularly use Tinder, you've doubtlessly heard rumours about Tinder Select. This "secret" version of the popular dating app significantly stacks the match-making in your favour.

I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed using Tinder, Bumble and the like, but dating in this modern age without them is almost unheard of.

It seems the death of the monogamous long-term relationship, thanks to Tinder and other dating applications, has been greatly exaggerated, new research from the University of Sydney has found.

This month marks Tinder's 4th birthday. The online dating app, that popularised terms like "swipe right" and "it's a match", has had a huge impact on how we find potential romantic partners. It made online dating trendy. The app was originally associated with frivolous hook-ups but these days you'll often hear couples talk about how they found each other on Tinder.
