One in three relationships began online in 2013, but that’s still not as impressive as the number of hookups as a result of online connections last year.
According to the Toronto Star, the highest circulated newspaper in Canada, half of all sexual interactions in North America were a result of online dating.
The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
And if you've still feel hesitant about swiping right, more celebrities than you think have used their phones in pursuit of love.
