Maybe they can teach you a thing or two
Swiping right all the time is exhausting when you never get any decent matches. But it's not a problem for these people, because they're the most swiped-right students in the country.
Following last year's hotly-contested results, Tinder has teamed up with Cosmopolitan to reveal the UK's top 30 most swiped-right people for the second year running. And a third of them are students. And yes, they're all single, obviously.
