Who knew there were so many reality stars on Tinder?
The advent of social media and dating apps has changed the way many of us find love, and for celebrities, it is no different. Basically, the lead actor from your favorite CW show is just as likely to slip into a person’s DMs or stroke straight on them as Brad from your econ class is.
In fact, a surprising number of celeb relationships began online via both social media and dating apps. However, many of them also still encounter the old-fashioned way (aka in real life).
Here are 21 celeb couples who started in the DMs:
