Bad News For Those Looking For Some Kinky Fun: Tinder Blocked In The UAE

Do you recall those hours spent swiping left and right, checking through hundreds of profiles and hoping that a magical match would finally pop in your screen? Yes, Tinder has been a favorite for many of us who look for casual hookups and impromptu romance, especially in the UAE where meeting potential one night stands is somewhat hard because of the hot weather inciting us to stay indoors, and of course the cultural context.

But if you’ve been banging your phone on the table because your Tinder pictures aren’t loading for the past few days, then don’t worry, your Tinder is fine, it’s just the government trying to give you blue balls, or blue ovaries.

This is not mere speculation. Last week, the vice-president of communications for Tinder Rosette Pambakian, confirmed the app is not functioning well in the UAE because of the phone providers’ decision to block it.
