Sam Smith: Tinder and Grindr Kill Romance
“No offense to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do,” he said. “We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.”
He added: “From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are ‘unattractive’ when I could potentially fall in love with them? Stop Tinder and Grindr!”
So is Smith, who came out in May, seeing someone? “I’ve been on a couple of dates,” he said. “I’m good at dates. I used to get really nervous but now I’m better. There is one particular guy that I’ve been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows?”
Either he found him the old fashioned way, or somebody swiped right.
* Ditch the dating apps.
* Who's "dating?" It's all about hookups.
