When you finally return to the office after months of working from home during the pandemic, there may be a few adjustments you need to make — from getting dressed below the waist to waking up more than three minutes before your first phone call.

But luckily, keeping up with your romantic connections shouldn’t be a problem after Tinder announced it’s revamping its “Desk Mode” feature so users can keep swiping while sitting at their desks.

Tinder users can access Desk Mode by logging into the Tinder desktop site on a computer, where they will see a briefcase icon in the top right corner of the screen.

That awkward moment when an annoying boss or chatty coworker pops up over your shoulder in the middle of a flirtation, you can click the icon to open a fake report, creating the illusion that you’ve been working all along.

Men who pose topless on Tinder are seen as less competent

Researchers at the University of Colorado have revealed that men who pose topless on Tinder are seen as less competent and more promiscuous.

The study participants were asked to rate the different versions of a man’s profile based on a range of factors, including his sexual behavior, physical attractiveness and personality.

When the man was shown topless in his profile picture, women rated him higher in risky sexual behavior, lower in social attraction and lower in competence.

Men also rated the shirtless man as higher in risky sexual behavior and lower in social attraction, but not lower in competence.

Tinder is an online dating app that matches singles based on their physical attraction to each other.

The app first launched Desk mode in 2017, and the feature has appeared a few times over the years, including the most recent in 2021.

This time, the product will be released on National Trainee Day, ‘because the art of multitasking will be the hardest to master for the newest additions to the workforce’.

The reintroduction comes after an investigation by Tinder of 1,000 US online daters between the ages of 18 and 30, and 30 percent said they swiped during a meeting.

Nearly half (47 percent) said they would rather match and chat with others on company time than on their own.

Meanwhile, 32 percent even admitted to going on a date with a Tinder match while working from home.

Introducing specific modes to tie in with current events is a common tactic for Tinder.

Earlier this year, it launched Festival Mode, which allowed users to find and match other festival-goers.

Users could select which festivals they planned to attend, then search and match other users a month before the event.

The company also recently launched a Blind Dates feature, which allows users to enter timed chats with potential matches before seeing their profile or photos.

Tinder hopes the feature will encourage users to focus more on personality than looks when looking for a match.

A study released earlier this year revealed that men who pose topless on Tinder are considered less competent and more promiscuous.

The study participants were asked to rate the different versions of a man’s profile based on a range of factors, including his sexual behavior, physical attractiveness and personality.

When the man was shown topless in his profile picture, women rated him higher in risky sexual behavior, lower in social attraction and lower in competence.

Men also rated the shirtless man as higher in risky sexual behavior and lower in social attraction, but not lower in competence.

HOW DID ONLINE DATING GET SO POPULAR?

The very first incarnation of a dating app dates back to 1995 when Match.com was first launched.

The website allowed singles to upload a profile and a photo and chat with people online.

The app was intended to let people looking for long-term relationships meet.

eHarmony was developed in 2000 and two years later Ashley Madison, a site dedicated to infidelity and cheating, was first launched.

A plethora of other dating sites with unique target demographics were established over the next 10-15 years, including: OKCupid (2004), Plenty of Fish (2006), Grindr (2009), and Happn (2013).

In 2012, Tinder was launched and was the first swipe-based dating platform.

Its use has snowed since its initial launch and by March 2014 there were one billion matches per day worldwide.

In 2014, Whitney Wolfe Herd, co-founder of Tinder, launched Bumble, a dating app that empowered women by allowing only women to send the first message.

The popularity of mobile dating apps such as Tinder, Badoo and more recently Bumble is due to a growing number of younger users with busy schedules.

In the 1990s, online dating was stigmatized as a last-ditch effort to find love.

This belief has disappeared and now about a third of marriages take place between couples who have met online.

A 2014 study found that 84 percent of dating app users used online dating services to seek a romantic relationship.

Twenty-four percent stated that they explicitly used online dating apps for sexual encounters.
