It felt like shopping for love. That’s the best way I can describe my first experience on a dating app. There was no pretence about who people were. No ambiguity about whether or not someone was looking for love. With a lack of romantic and sexual experience, I found Tinder too intimidating to take seriously at that time. Fast-forward one year, though, and I was well established on Bumble, Happn and Hinge, the latter of which I’m still using today, eight years later.
