Removing the Tinder app from smart phones and tablets is the most common way young people prove their love at the beginning of a relationship a new study has revealed.
The research found that 96pc of under 25s believed that uninstalling the dating app from their device proved that they were serious about their partner and confident in the relationship.
The study revealed that one in two people under 25 use social media to find a partner.
Facebook is still the most popular means in which young people meet new partners online mostly through the tool ‘suggested friends’.
Tinder, the app which encourages users to swipe left or right based on physical attraction, has more than 150,000 Irish users.
Mike Fairman from Giffgaff who conducted the study said: “Falling in love seems to be one of those times when we might be better off being unplugged.”
I'm going to pretend to be a better person. I don't know how this happened but I have an undeniable crush on a boy I met on Tinder. Actually, I do know how it happened - he's tall and smart and cynical and successful, and at least two of those things are important to me.
