The former Australian international - who was engaged to actress Elizabeth Hurley from September 2011 until they split in December 2013 - said he has been on a couple of dates since downloading the app.
Single Warne ready to mingle
Describing himself as currently “very, very, very single”, the 45-year-old told The Times Magazine: “One was horrific. One was ok.”
He added: “People say, ‘Why are you trying to impersonate Shane Warne?’
“I go, ‘OK, yeah, I am.’ And then they go, ‘No! It’s really you!’ And you go, ‘OK, it is.’ And then they go, ‘No, it’s not!’ So I’m on there for the fun value.”
Asked if he was open to falling in love again, he said: “I’m not looking for it. But if it happens, it happens. I’ve got three wonderful kids; I’m having fun; I don’t feel like I need it. But it gets quite lonely at times.
When you travel all the time.
“There’s one or two nights a week when you haven’t got your kids and you haven’t got your mates, and you just want to chill. It’s nice to share things with someone.
“Say how you’re feeling about things, how their day was. Cuddling up on the couch. I like that stuff.”
