A 'Fast Money' producer's Tinder date with an Australian comedian

The wildly popular dating app Tinder just reached its billionth match — so I decided to see what all of the fuss was about. This is what happened when I went on a Tinder date and CNBC came with me.

Like most people who sign up to use the dating app, Tinder, I was very apprehensive of what would happen as soon as I started swiping.

The app itself is like a human conveyor belt. Swipe right if you like what you see, swipe left if you never want to see it again.

Are the people on Tinder normal?

It turns out, while there is no shortage of selfies, shirtless photos and tiger-petting pictures (which I still don't understand) the majority of the people on Tinder looked rather wholesome. I continued my quest for the perfect Tinder date…

When I matched with Benny, we clicked immediately. His opening line was a joke about flamingos which, albeit incredibly random, caught my attention amongst all of the "Hi" and "Hey" messages one must wade through to find a match with personality.

As we continued chatting, he explained that he was only in the states for two weeks for a wedding. He has lived in London for the last four years but grew up in Australia. Cue dreamy accent sigh.

A match is created only when both players share a mutual attraction and are located within a reasonable proximity of each other. A testament to Tinder's design, without the dating app, Benny and I would have never crossed paths.

Watch how our date unfolded in the video above.

The CEO of Tinder, Sean Rad, announced on "Fast Money" that over 1 billion matches have been made globally since the app's launch in 2012.

According to Tinder, more than 300 Tinder matches have blossomed into marriages.

So to all of the singles out there looking for love: Better keep on tindering!
