Are you cringing yet?
I know, I know. It’s got a bad rep.
It’s “Killed Dating Culture”, too many are “Netflix & Chilling”
However, what started as a joke download with my friends, actually became real – when I agreed to my first Tinder date last December. It may be an unpopular opinion, but I do truly think there’s some value in the app. I got to meet someone new and get out of my comfort zone. I got to hang out with someone that I hadn’t yet been exposed to in my every day life, and that knew nothing about me… And I honestly think that’s pretty cool. (Also, I’m biased… because I actually met one that stuck.)
But that doesn’t mean my experiment with Tinder was all that glamourous… I for one have matched with quite a few toads (disguised as princes) in the past.
Not surprisingly then, I have a lot of mixed feelings about the app… feelings that would take much too long to type out. So, instead, I thought it would be more entertaining to capture my sad (but funny) past single journey through some flashback screen shots.
Here’s the guys you’ll meet on Tinder… or at least the one’s I had the “pleasure” of meeting.
