Forbes recently shared an article that found Tinder was the most used dating app during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Although everyone is doing their part to practice social distancing, that hasn't stopped people from seeking a romantic connection. Which is why I find it a little ironic that Tinder is the most used app. Tinder has the stigma of being a 'hookup app' while other alternatives like Bumble and Hinge are allegedly used by people looking for more serious relationships.
