Sam Smith: Dating apps Tinder, Grindr are ruining romance

Out British singer Sam Smith recently said he's not a fan of dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr.

The 22-year-old Smith revealed in a chat backstage at the V Festival that he's good at dates and has been on several with the same guy.

"No offense to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it's ruining romance, I really do," Smith said.

"We're losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you're swiping people."

"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. Stop Tinder and Grindr!" he said.

"I'm good at dates," he added."There is one particular guy that I've been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows?"
