New dating apps, like Tinder and Grindr, allow people to go on blind dates with others who have similar interests as them and who are conveniently in their area. All you have to do to get a date is sync your Facebook profile, set a few photos and a description, and start swiping.
When the cellphone was first invented, no one would have ever imagined that finding your soul mate (or an easy hookup) could be at the tip of your finger. By simply swiping right for "yes", and left for "no", you can be paired up with someone who is interested in you.
