Love-seekers, this should make you h(app)y

OPINION: The old ritual of standing in a pub eyeing off the group of girls at the bar and trying to decide who you'll target may be over.

I've discovered an application for love which I believe is very similar to online shopping at Woolworths.

The introduction of online dating made it easier to connect with someone, while lowering the chance of a bruised ego.

And new technology has made connecting online even easier.

On Tuesday I downloaded Tinder, a free application that takes photos from your Facebook and lists your interests, creating an online dating profile.

Then, prepare for your heart to flutter.

Tinder sends out what can only be described as a love radar, picking up other people near you who are also looking to connect.

It's exactly like shopping.

Scroll through their profiles and pick someone you like.

Then meet up and get engaged.

Topics:  app, love, online dating
