BRITISH singer Sam Smith has publicly slammed dating-apps, urging people to delete Tinder and Grindr from their phones as it is “ruining romance”.

Speaking with the UK’s Metro the 22-year-old said: “‘No offence to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do.

“We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.”

In the same interview, he also said how there was no substitute for chatting people up in the flesh and said that looks count for nothing – especially online.

“From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are ‘unattractive’ when I could potentially fall in love with them?,” he said.

“Stop Tinder and Grindr.”

Do you agree with Sam Smith? Are dating apps ruining romance?
