Online dating is, for lack of a better phrase, freaking exhausting. 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. I've heard several people describe their dating-app experience as "video game-like", which is kind of disheartening, considering that there are actual humans attached to the videos on the screen.

Despite the influx of dating apps that have exploded onto the scene, Tinder is still the app of choice for meeting potential lovers today. The problem is the app has become a feeding ground for scammers creating fake profiles solely for the purpose of extracting money from users. Here are some tips to help you weed out the fakers on Tinder.
Tinder has announced a new feature promising to include better safety for users who identify as LGBTQI+. Here's what you need to know and how you can use it.
Dating apps can be great for mingling while you’re travelling, but they can also be a major security risk. That’s why Tinder is rolling out a new “Traveller Alert” feature that was developed in collaboration with the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Association (ILGA) to protect LGBTQ+ users in nations and regions that criminalise same-sex acts.
Dating apps haven't ruined happy marriages or our ability to commit - but they can have an unexpected side effect. According to experts, the immediacy of online dating makes it easier to cheat.
Instead of deliberately going to a bar and looking for someone else, you can convince yourself that you're just "playing around" on the app.
Whether you’re on Tinder, Hinge, or Tudder (it’s an app for farmers to meet cows, platonically!), safety is key. You never know who you’ll meet when you’re separated by a screen and a grainy photo.
With your digital privacy more at stake than ever, it’s good to practice a little discretion when you venture into the dating world.
People joke that all anyone care about on dating apps is the photos, and it’s kind of true. But you’re not only being judged on a hotness scale—folks are trying to sense of you as a person without reading your bio. A picture says more than you realise about your taste, social life, and world view. Here’s what to think about when you’re choosing the perfect pic.
Dating terminology has gotten a lot broader - and a lot weirder - since the advent of smartphones, social media and online dating. It seems like every other day there's another pithy metaphor, slang word or acronym to jot down or brush up on.
Whether you're trying to keep up in the Gen Y dating scene or just want to decipher your teenage kid's wholly alien vocabulary, this glossary of love lingo is here to help.
It’s wise not to put so much pressure on a first date that you create impossibly high expectations. You’ll only make yourself nervous and likely make your date uncomfortable. But have we gone too far the other direction? It’s time to stop treating every first date like the first pancake in the frying pan. Do not feed it to the relationship dog.
Facebook has rolled out a number of changes to APIs used by developers for things like accessing events, group administration, page management and using Facebook for logging into to other apps and services. And while the changes are another step in the road to tying down rogue apps, it's not all smooth sailing.
A flaw in the Tinder app's log-in process, along with a flaw in Facebook's Account Kit API meant pretty much anyone could log into someone's Tinder account, just by knowing their phone number. It was a pretty big security issue. And, although it's now been fixed, it points to a lapse on the part of both Tinder and Facebook.
Israeli security firm Checkmarx has found that it's possible to reconstruct someone's Tinder session, including access to photos, by capturing traffic if you're connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The issue affects both the iOS and Android version of the app with a proof-of-concept app, dubbed TinderDrift, created to highlight how the flaw can be used.
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. There's no way to guarantee chemistry (or even basic human courtesy) between you and your first date, but you can at least plan a good location to find out if you hate each other.
