Over the weekend, when the ‘single but ready to mingle’ peeps in Pakistan decided to log into the dating app Tinder, they were unable to do so.

Tinder has been the talk of the town for many years. The reason is that it makes online dating a lot easier [if you’re not a catfish]. The mechanics of the mobile app are pretty simple – swipe right if you’re attracted to someone, otherwise swipe left and keep looking for other matches.



Although the networking application makes dating seem a lot shallower than it is, it gained a lot of popularity amongst the younger generation. But over the past weekend, their shenanigans were abruptly stopped as they were unable to use Tinder.

As soon as the ban on PUBG was imposed, many netizens started to question why apps like Tinder and Grindr were still available. Well, it looks like those complaints have been taken note of.



Social Media Reactions pour in!

While some might have wallowed in their sorrows, many took to Twitter to share the news. Here’s what people had to say about the ban on Tinder:














Perhaps with Tinder‘s ban in Pakistan, alternatives might take its place? Apps like Minder [Muslim Tinder] are still available.
