Zac Efron Admits No One ‘Swiped Right’ For Him On Tinder
Zac Efron has opened up about his dating struggles, revealing that he even tried Tinder after breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, Sami Miro, in April – and now we’re 100% regretting our decision to delete the app.
To make matters worse, the Hollywood hunk admitted that he failed to attract the attention of women on the dating app, with no one choosing to swipe right and share their approval of his chiselled cheekbones.
“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” he said. “They thought [my profile] was fake.”
The actor, 28, also admitted that he views his celebrity status as an obstacle in the dating world because it means that he’ll never be able to make a true first impression.
“Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” he told The Times. “As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realise it.”
He added: “A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.”

In addition to Miro, the eligible bachelor previously dated Vanessa Hudgens back in 2005, during the filming of High School Musical, until 2010. He has also been romantically linked to Lily Collins and Michelle Rodriguez.
Following his most recent split, Zac opened up about his battle with depression and his decision to take a backseat on social media.
“I lost my mind because of the internet,” he candidly revealed. “I’d read 30 positive things and one bad thing, then I’d harbour that bad thing. It drove me crazy.”

He also admitted to once Googling himself every morning, saying: “There was a moment when my morning routine was, like, get up and Google yourself.
“But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago. I saw that viewing yourself through other people’s pictures is not living your own life.”
Hold on, is Zac really trying to tell us that Googling his name on a daily basis isn’t healthy? Oops… BRB, we’re just going to delete our search history.
