The kit includes recipes for three different date night cocktails and a long list of icebreakers—questions on common interests, their respective personalities, dating lives—to get the conversation flowing. “I have had dates where we have made drinks over video, played games and even screen shared to watch a movie together,” she says. In the way that I had approached dating, I thought that when you met someone you “just knew,” and that that initial attraction was a sure-fire indicator of future relationship success.

If they look at the same group of people through different apps and find that one consistently provides matches they like more, they may stop subscribing to the ones that work less well, and they may tell their friends. The benefits are clearest for people whose preferences mean that discovering possible partners is particularly hard, either because of social isolation or physical isolation. Same-sex dating, which both operates in a smaller pool than heterosexual dating and is illegal or socially unacceptable in many places, is a particular beneficiary.

Then, in 2014, the proportion of interracial marriages jumped again. “It is interesting that this increase occurs shortly after the creation of Tinder, considered the most popular online dating app,” they say. The researchers start by simulating what happens when extra links are introduced into a social network. Their network consists of men and women from different races who are randomly distributed. In this model, everyone wants to marry a person of the opposite sex but can only marry someone with whom a connection exists. This leads to a society with a relatively low level of interracial marriage.
