My hot topic of today is the infamous Tinder. For those of you who are unaware of what Tinder is, it’s either because you’re too old, or you’re happily in a relationship, since I am neither, I am shamefully/shamelessly a Tinder user. Tinder is a free dating app available on your phone. Tinder works by selecting a few of your Facebook photos, creating a short bio, and showing you ‘singles’ in your area. You are able to select an age range you are interested in and set your distance to show you people up to 160km away. Now I know your probably wondering what is the creep to normal person ratio? Its about 6:1, maybe even higher. The app works anonymously so you don’t have to worry about turning down the weirdos, you simply swipe the profile to the left if your not interested, and swipe right if you are. Once you and someone have mutually liked one another, you are seen as a Match, and have the option to chat. Now lets be clear, I am not on Tinder looking for love, but it is quiet entertaining. For example, Tinder has tried to match me with the likes of:
And then there are some people who decide to Tinder drunk, or at least I really hope he was:
And then the scum of the Earth come around,
All in all, Tinder is a great time waster. But from my experience, do NOT leave your Tinder open around your friends because they WILL change your profile settings and make you appear as a Male looking for other Males. Its happened, I thought I broke the app before realizing someone had tampered with it.
