Love life and relationships are the most difficult issues to understand in life. They say there is no explanation for love and the world has been struggling to explain it as well as finding it especially in this digital era. With the advancement of technology, love stories have changed due to the development of dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble. Men and women have been meeting through the apps and their love and relationship stories have taken a new turn.
