The app has been hailed as a feminist answer to online dating, in which women are empowered to make the first move if they choose.
Like most time standards, UTC defines a grouping of seconds into minutes, hours, days, months, and years.
However, the duration of one mean solar day is now slightly longer (by roughly 0.001 seconds) than 24 hours (86400 SI seconds) because the rotation of the Earth has slowed down.
They were good back then, but things change, people change, and our society is not what it was 30 years ago.
Today, many single men and women find themselves asking the question: Where do you go to meet local singles?
Specifically, a positive leap second is inserted between second of a chosen UTC calendar date and second of the following date.
The definition of UTC states that the last day of December and June are preferred, with the last day of March or September as second preference, and the last day of any other month as third preference.Once a couple matches (through a swipe function similar to Tinder's), women must message within 24 hours or lose the match. Up until now, men had "essentially forever" to do so, says Wolfe.Now they're beholden to the same time window as women are.Therefore, if the UTC day were defined as precisely 86400 SI seconds, the UTC time-of-day would slowly drift apart from that of solar-based standards, such as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and its successor UT1.The purpose of a leap second is to compensate for this drift, by occasionally scheduling some UTC days with 86401 or (in principle) 86399 SI seconds.You have a lifetime of experiences at this stage in your life and you know what will and will not make you happy and fulfilled in a relationship.
