Stop Grindr and Tinder they're ruining romance, says singer Sam Smith

Gay British singer Sam Smith has expressed his disapproval of dating apps Grindr and Tinder, arguing that their superficial nature is limiting the chances of people finding a genuine relationship.

The singer admitted his frustrations were fuelled by apps whereby users were encouraged to swipe continuously, thus eradicating the chance for more of an in-depth look at the persona behind the physique.

"No offence to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do," he said.

"From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are “unattractive” when I could potentially fall in love with them?,’ he expressed. ‘Stop Tinder and Grindr!’"

The singer, who came out earlier this year, admits he's getting better at the whole dating game.

"I used to get really nervous but now I’m better. There is one particular guy that I’ve been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows?"

It's probably safe to assume they didn't meet online.
