Man Hold Up ! According to the NL Times, a Dutch  brother and sister, separated for 16 were reunited after they both swiped right on Tinder.  

Erik de Vries and Josephine Egberts parents separated in 1999.  And, that’s the last time they saw each other.  Fast forward to 2015, they reconnected by matching, flirting and then swiping right on the app.

When they found out they were related, thank God, they arranged reunion.

De Vries and his twin brother, Maarten, moved to Belgium with their father after the divorce.  His sister remained in Holland.  The 24-year-old had tried to track down his sister of years,  but was unsuccessful.  Then he returned to Holland for school, and joined Tinder  to find a hook up.

As he was swiping through pictures in April, he matched with a 22-year-old woman.

They realized that they’d both been separated from siblings during their childhoods, and that both their parents had been through bad divorces.

The twin brothers then arranged to meet up with their sister in Holland.
