Living dating in the dark application
The truth is, no app embodies the “necessary evil” aspect of swiping the way Tinder does.And it’s not even Tinder’s fault: As a pioneer of the current dating app format, Tinder’s utter ubiquity means everyone has an opinion about it.“I’ve held onto Tinder because it’s used more internationally,” she says.“I used to travel abroad alone for work a lot and would just get super bored.“I don’t like to tell people how we met,” she says of her fiancé."It’s not bad, it’s not embarrassing, it’s just not cool: We met on a dating app, like all of you.
“It’s a bummer, because I used it to meet cool people to expand my dating pool, which was helpful with the radius feature on Tinder.” She says that, despite some annoying responses from dudes, she was just out of a relationship and wanted to stick with using the app.
Yet, where Tinder acts as a gateway app for some daters (from which they move onto apps more aligned with their specific desires), for others it remains the best of the bunch.
