Tinder's Most Swiped Right Man Has Found Love The Traditional Way

Tinder's Most Swiped Right Man Has Found Love The Traditional Way

The most 'swiped right' man in Tinder has finally found love, but not - as you might assume - on the dating app.

Instead, Stefan Pierre-Tomlin has started a relationship with 26-year-old model Egle Damulyte, who he met in real life.

Funny how that sometimes happens, isn't it?

The 30-year-old has been swiped right by more than 14,600 people since joining the app two years ago, but none of his subsequent dates have resulted in anything lasting.

However, through his modelling career he met Damu on a photoshoot, and after first deciding to keep their relationship professional, they finally decided to go on a date last June.

Now, they are living together in South East London throughout the lockdown, and Stefan admits that he has struck it lucky by finding someone in the traditional way, rather than through Tinder.

He said: "It's very cool to have found love outside of Tinder again because it's quite unexpected, given my title.

"I met Damu on a photoshoot two years ago and I quite liked her but I didn't think anything would happen between us.

"It was more of a professional relationship and we exchanged Instagrams so I kept seeing her pop up and I started to really fancy her.

"I reached out to Damu after the first lockdown and asked her on a date when we were allowed to do things together and we just clicked.

"After that we were pretty much together and have been since June.

"By the second lockdown we had moved in together and throughout the third we're still going strong."

Stefan has had something of a turbulent love life in recent times, counting former X Factor and Big Brother stars amongst his ex-girlfriends.

He leapt back into Tinder during the first lockdown, but - despite meeting people from around the globe - couldn't find someone that he truly connected to.

He explained: "Back in March, I just thought I was going to be lonely throughout the lockdown.

"I did hop on Tinder for a while. I was just chatting to people and getting to know everyone.

"I put my pin in lots of different places in the world and hopped around. I felt like a love charity for lonely people in lockdown.

"I had so much more time to focus on the app and chat to different women whereas beforehand I was always out on jobs.

"But didn't really feel like I was going to meet someone and ended up leaving it in the end."

Then, after a photoshoot, he started seeing Damu, and the pair have quickly become inseparable and moved in together.

Stefan continued: : "We went on a date where we pedalled a boat on a canal and the chemistry was perfect.

"I had been eyeing her up for a few years anyway so it was great that we had such a good connection romantically.

"She's gorgeous inside and out and I've been really lucky.

"This time around I have such a good feeling about it."

He concluded: "I'll always like Tinder and I have nothing against it, it was great for my mental health in lockdown to speak to people.

"But if you've had your eye on someone for a while, now is a good time to try and talk to them online and get to know them a little better while we all have this free time.

"It's much easier to get a strong connection and it's definitely worked out for me with Damu.

"However I do think dating apps are fantastic for your mental health and virtual dates are still fun.

"It's a great way to prepare for us coming out of lockdown when everyone's able to go back to normal again.

"I see a bright future with Damu and we'd love to move to a different country together or travel to different countries with our modelling careers, as soon as it's safe to get around again.

"We're looking forward to a better 2021 and I've started new business ventures such as an online butchers called WhatsURBeef and I've signed global modelling contracts. I'm very excited.

"And if things continue like this with Damu, we're going to be a power couple for sure."
