Nobody Swiped Right for Zac Efron on Tinder
Efron attributes his difficulty of maintaining a normal dating life to his inextricable celebrity status in an interview with The Times.
“Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” said Efron.“As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it. … A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.”
The actor says that he had no luck using dating apps after breaking up with his longtime girlfriend back in April because people didn’t take his profile seriously. “Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me! They thought [my profile] was fake,” said Efron.
Efron also explained that his depression deters him from using social media on a regular basis.
“I lost my mind because of the internet. I’d read 30 positive things and one bad thing, then I’d harbor that bad thing. It drove me crazy,” said Efron.
