ALL THINGS TINDER

By now even the long-term married couples have heard of Tinder, the dating app.  Tinder consists of a bunch of profiles of potential dates.  When they come up you swipe left if you don’t like them and swipe right if you do.  The question is, do guys approach Tinder differently to girls?  Nicola Bardon and Joe.ie’s Carl Kinsella talk about Tinder and what are the traits that make them immediately swipe left.
