    You might be over Tinder – after five years of swiping right on our phones, we’ve learned a few things: your mobile battery life cannot cope with the excessive Sunday afternoon swiping, the little square pictures of potential suitors aren’t big enough, and as much as you try and hide it, there’s always at least one fellow commuter watching everything you do.

    But what if we told you that you could access the world’s most popular dating app from absolutely any device – including your laptop or desktop?

    That’s right. Tinder now has it’s very own online version, meaning that swiping right can happen anywhere – on your office computer when you need a break from endless spreadsheets, during a lecture when you’re zoning out, or even when you’re set up in a coffee shop ‘working’.

    Of course, the mobile app means it’s accessible everywhere from your phone – but what if you can’t get 4G? Or you’ve not got enough space on your phone for the app? Well, now there’s a solution to those Tinder tribulations.

    And when better to get looking for a significant other with drafting season coming up.

    What do you think of Tinder going online? Is it a welcome distraction from work, or a dangerously addictive slippery slope?

    Only time will tell. But maybe keep it from your boss.
