- In 2017, male model, Stefan Pierre-Tomlin, was found by popular dating site, Tinder, to be the most-swiped person on the app ever
- Although Stefan racked up over 14 000 swipes right over two years, the handsome app-user decided to look for romance out in the real world
- Stefan has subsequently opened up that he has found love offline, despite his Tinder success
Male model, Stefan Pierre-Tomlin, was given the name “Mr Tinder” two years ago when top dating app, Tinder, told the world that he was the person who had received the most right swipes in Tinder’s history.
According to W24, the 29-yer-old received 12 600 swipes over two years, a record for any member of the dating site.
Despite Stefan’s exceptional success with Tinder, he has since found love offline, in an ironically conventional way.
Mr Tinder met Natasha Boon, a former X Factor contestant, via a friend while out one night.
“When I first saw Natasha, she instantly reminded me of Marilyn Monroe – she wore a tight red dress, red lippy and her trendy blonde hair was styled amazingly,” Stefan said.
“She knocked me off my feet and that rarely happens with me. I had butterflies in my stomach, which left me thinking ‘this isn’t normal for me’!” Stefan added.
Briefly.co.za discovered that Stefan has previously spent five years searching for romance on dating sites.
“Usually people these days use modern technology to find love but Natasha and I just have that natural chemistry, so it was nice to have met her the ‘old-fashioned’ way … After the whole Mr Tinder hype, I kind of thought the universe would help me meet ‘Miss Right’ offline, and there we have it!” Stefan gushed.
