Quoted today in +Men's Health about #Tinder's new rate structure for their premium service. Many will pay to rewind and get that lost swipe back. Would you pay more based upon your age?
The new Tinder Plus service costs twice as much if you're over 30. Is that fair? And since when has 30 become the new 60?
