On the one hand, my schedule automatically winnows the dating field – someone must I've met men on Tinder interested in both serious and casual relationships.I would love to fall in love again – to once more experience that type of deep intimacy, with all the joy and pain that it entails.While I've had my share of ridiculous, pointless come-ons, I've also met men interested in real dating.

Tinder's strength is that it easily tells you when there is a mutual attraction. For me, the benefits of using a dating app far outweigh its drawbacks.

And rather than wishing on a star, I will take matters into my own hands, swiping right towards my next romance.

We live in a culture that is becoming increasingly dependent on social media networks for our daily personal interactions.

Browse Twitter and you hear about your buddies cup of coffee in the morning or a recent milestone in someones life.

On the flip side, many of the men are there for hook-ups.

For every man seeking dating or romance on Tinder, there are probably 10 others seeking to hook-up, or to become friends with benefits.

I didn't and we dated for a few more months but parted ways once we determined we wanted different things from a relationship. We matched on Tinder and he immediately asked me to dinner.

Our dinner, at a local restaurant specializing in all kinds of meat, lasted four hours.

While none of these options interest me, I certainly receive many offers.
