"I can't tell you," says Manders, "how many times I've gone to meet up with someone off an app and had to double-check my phone to make sure I wasn't going crazy thinking they looked different from their photos.""I also have to admit, the whole getting updated with a match once a day is pretty liberating," Manders adds.
