Popular dating app Tinder, often associated with hooking up, crashed Thursday night, prompting many of its users to vent their disappointment on social media, coming as the crash did just before the long Labor Day weekend.
According to downdetector.com, the problems started shortly before 10 p.m. EDT, around the same time when Tinder acknowledged it.
Some users have reported that the app is crashing on iOS. We're looking into it. Stay tuned!

Tempted to tell the last guy I went out with that since #tinder is down he's stuck with me, but if he doesn't get the joke, could be bad.
