This guy, Shed Simove created his own app called Shinder to find himself a partner.
The Shinder platform invites people to register via Facebook, and after a few questions, decides whether the potential date is a match with Shed Simove.
Mr Simove, a serial inventor and speaker, said he had received 150 matches and been on three dates.
However, Tinder has filed a legal objection, after he tried to trademark it.
Tinder filed a Notice of Threatened Opposition to the Intellectual Property Office, and Simove also received a letter from lawyers representing the elevator firm Schindler.
Schindler asked him to commit to refraining from entering the elevator or escalator market.
Both firms were contacted by the BBC for comment. Tinder said it was aware of the situation.
Oh man, big ups to Simon for thinking outside the box! Just give this man a date.
