It was an honor and joy to be quoted as the Tinder dating expert in the cover story in the Style section of the New York Times.
In the article, The Tinder Dating Pool Isn’t Completely Shallow, I was interviewed by Brooke Lea Foster on the successful couples who are finding love and serious relationships on the mobile dating app, Tinder.
Six couples were featured who swiped right and either got engaged or have already gotten married to their Tinder love match.
So if you think Tinder is just for hook ups, think again.
Years ago you didn’t tell anyone you were on any online dating site due to the stigma. It was a matter of time before Tinder became mainstream and this feature piece in the New York Times has shown that Tinder’s come a long way baby.
It was only a year ago that the New York Times did a feature piece on Tinder for Valentine’s Day, where they asked me to weigh in on the popularity of mobile dating apps.
When we created Mobile Dating BootCamp, ahead of the curve in 2012, the Washington Post first broke the story. Even then, the daters were skeptical.
So grab your mobile phone, log on several times a day, keep those push notifications coming and be open to the possibilities of finding love from the convenience of your mobile phone.
Wishing you much love and joy in cyberspace, or wherever you may roam. xo
