I'm referring to those dating apps where you swipe through faces and say yes or no (tinder, POF, 3nder, happn etc). A person can't be represented by a few pics and a paragraph of course, so we are just judging for hotness. Or is it good, because when you meet you already know the person is attracted to you? I personally think it doesn't make us more shallow, just allows us to be shallow, faster and easier.

It has nothing to do with "shallowness". What really has occurred is a detached state of attraction which comes with an overwhelming amount of choice. Instead of having a group within your city to be attracted to of maybe a few hundred people you now have millions at your fingertips which works out much like having to go to the grocery store and choose one dressing out of 70 options. You just get overwhelmed and begin to act irrationally summarizing the choices by some general level trait.0
