A trendy new smartphone app promises to reduce the complexities of finding your perfect mate – or at least a date for tonight – to a simple swipe on your phone.The Lebanese are among over 50 million global users on the dating application.Tinder then generates profiles of people geographically near you with mutual Facebook friends and interests.For others like Lama al-Qadi, 27, the element of rejection is just as strong on Tinder.Qadi is currently seeing someone she met on Tinder who is a mutual friend of a friend, but it is still not serious yet.Hourani advised new Tinder matches to mention mutual friends, music preferences or come up with "something funny".Not all Tinder users are using the dating application for the same reason; middle-aged married people are look for love (affairs) while others are either egocentric or curious about the technology trend.Hanan, 33, said she went on dates with two different people on the same day after matching on Tinder.Khoury said there were several reasons behind the influx of Lebanese people to Tinder.
