More than 8 billion matches have been made since Tinder launched three years ago.

Chris Powers, a popular online personality known for his provocative social experiments on You Tube, helped us learn just how reckless some women could be.

A case in point in Gainesville, Florida, where our affiliate station WJXT Jacksonville reports that 27-year-old Gerard Roberts was charged with raping a young woman on a blind date after police had already received stalking complaints about him from women on the mega-popular dating app Tinder.

And there are a lot of other creepy guys out there in the world of "cyberdating." In Denver, Colorado, our affiliate station KDVR reports 29-year-old Darren Auger is behind bars, accused of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman he'd met on Tinder.

Also in Denver, KDVR reports a man posing as a rock musician named "John" on Tinder turned out to be a thief whose real name was Kenneth David Burrell.
