Sam Smith: Tinder is ‘Ruining Romance’
By Philip Cosores
In 2014, the Internet has made it remarkably easy to find a hookup if you are just somewhat normal, and probably even if you aren’t. But “Stay with Me” singer Sam Smith has spoken out against dating apps like Tinder and Grindr. His model for ditching this methods? Himself.
“No offense to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do,” Smith told Metro.
“From my experience, the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest,” Smith said, “so why would I swipe people who are ‘unattractive’ when I could potentially fall in love with them? Stop Tinder and Grindr!”
Smith’s path to success in the dating arena (you know, the old-fashioned way) has yielded some positive results, though the “Latch” singer is holding back any self-congratulatory sentiment.
“I am good at dates,” Smith gloated. “There is one particular guy that I’ve been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows?”
