Did you just feel a great disturbance in the Booty Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced? We fear something terrible has happened.

Unfortunately, something terrible has happened. And no, the terrible thing isn't us quoting Star Wars just now. That's super cool and hella neat, damn it!

If you have logged onto Tinder recently and noticed that your matches have suddenly disappeared, don't worry. It's not the universe trying to tell you to stop using a dating app and actually talk to another human face to face. But apparently Tinder is experiencing some issues and your matches are definitely gone for the moment, so yeah, maybe you should worry.

Users are currently having a severe panic attack because they have been logging in to find all their matches are gone. Or they can't login at all. And when Tinder tweeted this message earlier today, the outrage reached critical mass:


"We're experiencing some issues at the moment. Some users might not be able to log in. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Obviously, Tinder users are super upset, and we don't blame them! This glitch might cost them a future spouse or at least a couple months of free meals and adequate hooking up! But in all seriousness, seeing tweets about people missing out on a dream boyfriend/girlfriend makes our cold, black heart break a little bit.

It helps really set the sorrowful mood if listen to this song while reading these tweets:

And then there's this guy:

But we are happy to report that everyone can take a big, fat chill pill. Tinder says that once the technical issues are resolved, users will get all their love connections back.

"We are experiencing an outage," a Tinder rep tells E! "Matches are not lost. Once we are up again soon matches should be restored automatically."

Deep breath, you guys. The booty is not lost! But until Tinder figures out the glitch, it looks like people will have to find love and/or casual sex the old-fashion way. 

Face-to-face human communication. GROSS. Give us swiping or give us death!

We should put that on a t-shirt.
