It now makes some two million matches per day and has 150 million profile ratings.That's impressive, given it only launched a year ago in the US.

A new trend in online dating makes use of the GPS in your i Phone, Android, or Blackberry to help you find a date within a mile radius of where you are at any moment. The new technology is completely secure: your exact location is never revealed, so if you're a stalker, well, you're sh*t out of luck."I'd been on a few dates and I'd thought, 'well, these aren't really the right kind of people.' But because Tinder links through Facebook, immediately you think, well, I'm going to like you because we have three or four friends in common and I can stalk you through them and find out more about you." "The app is well-designed," says Alex. ' I mean, it literally is saying 'I am a game.'" Mateen thinks Tinder is popular because it's less artificial than other websites which rely on carefully-constructed profiles."Tinder really just emulates the way the real world works," says Mateen.If you can't work up the courage in the first hour, your match disappears.To be fair, the trend isn't exactly "new": The location-based online dating tool Grindr has been around for the gay community since March 2009.It matches you up using your existing profile data on Facebook to show whether you have any friends or interests in common. If you like them, you swipe to the right, if you don't, you swipe to the left.

If you both "like" each other, then you can start messaging and maybe arrange to meet, or take it a step further...Here's how GPS dating works: you fill out a profile saying who you are and what you're looking for in your mate.(For example, you could say you're only interested in non-smoking Jewish men taller than 5'10" who read Henry James on the weekends.) Then the application matches your profile with potential mates, all within a mile radius.But you no longer have to be gay to try location-based dating: a wave of new apps, including Meet Moi, Skout, and Singles Around Me give us all the chance to find out, once and for all, if the Internet will bring us happiness, as we were promised.If you're single and frustrated that no-one around you is chatting you up because they're all playing with their phones, then fear not! The smartphone app uses GPS to find people near you.But its co-founder, Justin Mateen, seems reluctant to describe Tinder as a dating app.
