Her direct quote was: “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. You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship.

…let’s just say a lot of people lit up the responses and begged to differ.

@people i met my mans on tinder and we just had our one year. Michelle ily but w all due respect but you got wifed up long before tinder existed

Me: found my boyfriend of 2.5+ years on Tinder. We bought a condo this summer and are currently looking at engagement rings sooooo idk what to tell you @MichelleObama but i think i did just fine off Tinder ?? https://t.co/DwGCmFOzSt

@people I beg to disagree @MichelleObama
My husband and I are going on 4 years strong, after meeting on Tinder??

Now I’m sure Michelle meant it as more of a metaphor implying that love takes a lot more than just a swipe, but I mean, why are people still hating on online dating in 2020?!?!?!
