NBA team Atlanta Hawks recently treated fans to a “Swipe Right” Night promotion during their game against the Memphis Grizzlies. For those of you who are not familiar with the phrase, “swipe right” is used on the dating app Tinder. If you see a profile you like, you swipe right for a yes and for anyone you don’t care for, you swipe left for no.
Although it may seem strange, “Swipe Right” Night was a hit and went well for a few of the fans. Here’s how it all went down:
The night started off with roses for the guys.

After that, Tinder users started to “swipe right,” to find a date at the game. Areas were set up throughout Philips Arena for the brave souls to meet one another face to face. The hashtag #SwipeRightNight started trending on Twitter with pictures from users who had hit it off.
