BYU students weigh in on dating apps


Dating apps are popular among college students and have changed the way young adults interact with each other. The Daily Universe interviewed BYU students about three popular dating apps: Tinder, Bumble and Mutual.

  1. Tinder shows a person’s photo, and the app user can swipe left on the photo to indicate he or she is not interested. Swiping right indicates interest, and the two people “match” if both parties swipe right. People who have matched with each other can then send messages to each other.
  2. Bumble is similar to Tinder, but girls must send the first message. If a girl doesn’t message the boy she matched with within 24 hours of matching, the match disappears forever.
  3. Mutual is similar to Tinder, but is specifically for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
