Mostly, Michelle and Conan spent the time addressing how all relationships require real work — Michelle even likened choosing a spouse to "picking your basketball team."
While they gave
A LOT of great advice, there was one thing that made a lot of listeners scratch their heads — when Michelle said, "You can't Tinder your way into a long-term relationship."

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."
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?!?!?!
Love you though, Michelle!!!!!!!!
So what do you think? Can you actually "Tinder your way into a long-term relationship"? Let us know in the comments!!!
