Technology has changed the way people do things. People can work from home on the computer or buy clothes and shoes from their cell phones. In modern times, you can press a button and open up a whole new world from the comfort of your home. Companies have now created a dating app that lets you see people’s profiles without having to meet them in person. You can look for your next boyfriend or girlfriend online!

This new way of looking for your next love interest is done through an online dating app called Tinder. This dating app makes it possible for two strangers with similar hobbies to connect. You just download the app to your phone and make a profile that describes your hobbies.

Jessica and Andy are talking about online dating apps. Find out what they think in today’s English lesson.

Andy_H:  Hey Jessica, I just downloaded an online dating app and I’m wondering if you have any experience or know anybody that has any idea how that really works.

Jessica:  Yeah. I was actually just helping my mom set up a profile because I’m trying to introduce her to the world of online dating, and I think she can meet some really great people even if she isn’t using it to go on a date. She may make a connection with someone who has similar hobbies, and I don’t know.

Andy_H:   See… My sister met her husband off of a dating app.

Jessica:  Did she really!?

Andy_H:  She did. And I was worried that it might be dangerous or that the dates might have different motives. But they seem to be doing very well.

Jessica:  Yeah, honestly, I think that they’ve locked down quite a few of the websites and apps so they’re very secure. And even though you’re running into a stranger, they’re pretty locked down. I don’t think you have to worry about any of the dangers. I think they’re pretty safe. I know they have a bad rap, but they are definitely safe.

Andy_H:  Well, that’s pretty good to hear. I guess I’ll have to let you know how my next Tinder date goes.

Jessica:  Sounds good! I can’t wait to hear all about it.

Andy_H:  Neither can I.

Actually ,I have had communicated to people that sign up in sort of online app dating .
Frankly , I had good time with them because they lived in other provinces and states , and also sharing our ideas about so many reasons that have came in our mind to tell each other .
There are different reasons that people register online dating apps , because some of them motoviting to find their matches , but minority of people want to screw other apps user .
It’s kind of risk to believe some online dating apps .
I can say , it’s nothing to lose it . Try it
