IT technician Leonard Whang, 28, who, like many of his peers, uses dating apps such as Tinder and Paktor, says the apps help people overcome the fear of rejection that comes with asking someone out face to face.

If they feel like they click, they can proceed to propose a time and place to meet, which is also done within the app.
Tinder, which is part of the IAC/Inter Active Corp media conglomerate that also owns dating websites and Ok Cupid, boasts more than 91 million downloads and 1.5 billion swipes every day.
