As the former US first lady Michelle Obama recently spoke about modern relationships and why they fail to stand the longevity test, several internet users took to Twitter to dismiss her comments on dating platforms like Tinder and shared images of their successful relationship with a partner who they found online. While speaking on the latest episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast, the former first lady opened up about some tips for youngsters. Michelle said, “You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship’.
She spoke about modern relationships and how young couples face challenges and they’re ready to give up because they think they’re broken. Michelle said, “There’s no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen”.

Actually, @MichelleObama, you stand corrected. My husband and I met through Tinder over 6 years ago and have been happily married for 4 years. You are not an authority on relationships or how they should or should not come about.

Michelle has not actively dated in 30 years. All she thinks of when she hears tinder is “microwave”. I’m not taking this line seriously, no one should lol. https://t.co/iSgHOrjNTS
