Dating in the past years was when two people met via common friends or acquaintances. And then, came dating apps. Which kind of helped in a lot many ways, like privacy and ease.
However, finding true love is difficult as even dating apps these days are used for purposes other than they were intended for. Like networking, building a strong professional contact base and even studying together.
Let’s see an example of this. Recently, a guy preparing for UPSC exams, matched with two other girls on Tinder, who were also preparing themselves for the same exams. They now use the app for clarifying doubts.
This incident was tweeted by a certain Neha Jha, and responses to this tweet are hilarious and downright brilliant.
Met a guy on Tinder who said he is preparing for UPSC exam. I asked about the other girls he matched with. He said he matched with two others who are also preparing for UPSC exam and are using Tinder to clear their doubts. Never knew @Tinder_India could also be an educational app

It works the other way round also. Every app where you can interact with a stranger is a dating up in India. Last one I heard of was LudoKing.
