"I would tell women, 'Buckle up, bitch, this is not going to be a fun ride.'" Glaser, 32, has made a professional study of dating sites like Tinder and the hookup culture that experts say has reshaped many people's sex lives.

Dating apps are so commonplace now that swipe right, the way you show you like someone on Tinder, has become part of our everyday language.And since nearly everything is done using an app on a phone, "you can have a relationship with someone and never hear their voice," Glaser says. "Swipe right" now means "anytime you make a good choice or approve of something," according to Urban Dictionary.The internet has been "transformational" to the way we have relationships, says Pepper Schwartz, a professor of sociology at the University of Washington who studies dating.
