For Tinder users everywhere, it’s a reassuring message that the dating app isn’t just about flighty hook-ups.
Steamy photographs of Stefan-Pierre Tomlin, who became Tinder’s most right-swiped singleton earlier this year, show him enjoying a night out with his girlfriend of nearly a year, Gemma Foster.
The beautiful pair looked happy to show off their love as they emerged from London nightspot Sketch and enjoyed a clinch in the back of a Rolls Royce.
Model Stefan-Pierre Tomlin (pictured leaving Sketch in London last night) shot to social media fame last year when he was named one of the most ‘swipeable’ singletons on Tinder. A year on and his love affair with pretty Dubliner Gemma Foster, 26, is clearly going from strength to strength

No plans to get back on Tinder! Stunning brunette Gemma has clearly won the heart of the handsome 27-year-old
Stefan-Pierre, 27, deleted his profile in March after nearly two years on Tinder…and it looks like his latest squeeze is a keeper.
Glamorous Dubliner Gemma, 26, has clearly captured the heart of her man, who was professing after just a few weeks of dating that he wanted to ‘make a future’ with his brunette girlfriend.
He told FEMAIL at the time: ‘I plan on making a future with Gemma and this is just the beginning of something amazing,’ he said.
Gemma, who works in management for the clothing store Reiss, now lives in Stratford in east London, and has spent nearly every day with her handsome boyfriend since they met.
The couple are preparing to celebrate their first anniversary together, proving that Tinder is more than just about hook-ups – although the pair did meet in the ‘friends’ group area of the app

Stefan-Pierre met Gemma through Tinder’s social group feature, which allows single friends to swipe together to meet other groups.
They went on their first date at the beginning of January, and Stefan-Pierre says it wasn’t long before they made things official.
‘I haven’t left her since,’ he told FEMAIL.

‘We went on a few dates then I met her on Valentine’s Day and I took her for dinner. That’s when it became official. She is my right hand and keeps me focused.’
Stefan-Pierre has wined and dined Gemma all over London, heading to his favourite restaurant Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch for champagne and steak, and Buddah Restaurant in Knightsbridge, where they sampled a tasting menu.
And it seems Gemma is equally smitten with Stefan-Pierre, who added: ‘She says I’m a nice boy with great intentions, that I make her laugh and that we’re best friends.’
While Stefan-Pierre is no longer in need of Tinder or any other dating apps, he still has some top tips for others looking for love.
‘Tinder is amazing, make a group and go on social meets, and do things that interest you like activities or go partying together.
