Many other apps have either a simple "about me" section, or that and “what I'm looking for”.
Tinder takes things to the opposite extreme – and perhaps this is why it's taken off so much.
At one point during the Citi-sponsored Live Nation event, Carey’s backup dancer beau, 33, brought her to her microphone and dipped her in a passionate dance move before they exchanged sultry looks during “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Other classic Mariah hits on the night’s set list included “Emotions,” “We Belong Together” and “Hero.” “Thank you for being here for me for so long.

Compared to other apps, this means you can be up and running much quicker.On the downside, if you don't remove them from the app, it may mean you're showing prospective mates a really goofy photo that looked fun on Facebook.
