He smells much better now."GYM (3.5 Stars)This app presents you with a lot of sweaty people and lets you guess whether you might want to date them when they are less sweaty.Conversational nuggets are no longer exciting or novel; they are evaluated in the light of the image created by the person’s online profile.

How it works: Tindr locates interesting yet romantically unpopular people around you and guarantees an instantaneous connection that lasts instantaneously.
Matches are selected just for you and hundreds of others.
Like someone by tapping [icon of a kitten] or Spurn by tapping [icon of a pig]. unless your match, with malevolent indifference, does not respond, in which case tap [icon of a bomb] to destroy the connection forever.
If two souls match [two kitten icons side by side], then what are you waiting for? Or, if your match replies, chat until one of you ruins the witty repartee by suggesting you continue said repartee in real life.
To indicate that you aren't interested: Tell Him You Have a Boyfriend, Hide in the Bathroom Until He Is Gone, or Give Him Someone Else's Number.
