In case you either live under a rock or are married (both are perfectly fine), there’s this new dating app called, Tinder. It runs strictly on your smartphone.
I think they called it “Tinder” because the idea is to set your love life up in flames as quickly as possible.
Let me explain.
Known as the “hook up” site and a reputation for quick, meaningless connections within a few miles of where you’re currently located, Tinder requires less effort than blinking your eyes and about 2 brain cells to determine whether the “match” displayed on your screen is someone you want to like or not.
If you like their pic and have read their short bio (if they’ve even written one), you take your thumb and swipe right on their pic to let them know you’re interested. (For the uber curious, you can click to see up to 5 total pics…if they’ve actually uploaded them.)
If they’ve already done that same “swipe right” process after seeing your profile, BADABOOM! You’re a MATCH! Cupid can go back to sleep now and your hot and heavy adventure can begin.
Given my extensive knowledge and current practice using other dating apps, I’d say this one’s at the bottom of the spectrum in terms of finding someone amazing, who’s also truly looking for a long-term relationship.
Except for this guy I met on Tinder last Friday who I’ll probably marry….
But more on that later. 🙂
