Tinder: the best of all dating apps?

If Scarface has taught me anything it’s that in America, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.

However, getting money and power are two very difficult tasks. Luckily, there are dating apps that makes it easier to meet women (or men). We’d like to talk to you about our favorite new dating app. It’s called Tinder and you’re gonna like it.

Dating apps are everywhere nowadays. Some dating apps are good, other dating apps are pretty bad. And to be perfectly honest, Tinder just might be the best one yet.

So what’s so special about Tinder that makes it better than all other dating apps?

For the most part, other dating apps follow in the footsteps of dating sites. That means you’re required to profile yourself, which ultimately means you’re forced to write boring, half-truths in hopes of attracting the opposite sex.

Tinder cuts out the lying factor of dating sites and other dating apps. Instead, Tinder is more like a “Hot or Not” game where you have a chance to meet/date the people you think are hot.

It’s a lot like BangWithFriends and those kinds of dating apps in the sense that Tinder only pairs people up when there’s a match. If you gave someone a green heart and they gave you a green heart, you’ll be alerted like so:


As you can see, you have the option to message the person you’ve been matched with directly through the App or keep playing.

“Keep playing” is such a good choice of words by the way. Dating apps have a seedy connotation and dating sites can be way too serious. “Keep playing” signifies Tinder as a game, which it is. It’s not a serious way to try and meet a soulmate and it’s not dirty like you’re trying to fuck everyone, you’re just trying to find matches.  The fear of rejection is nullified in this way because it’s just a game, who cares?

The other thing that Tinder has improved on from previous dating apps is that the people you’re matching up with actually know about Tinder. BangWithFriends, for example, gathered all your Facebook friends even if they hadn’t signed up for the app meaning your odds of getting the match you wanted was fairly low. Tinder’s match percentage is much higher because you’re only shown active users.

On top of that, if you allow Tinder to use your current location, you’ll be Hearting or Xing people in your area, which obviously means that hook-ups are far more realistic. Plus it’s all linked through Facebook so you know that the users are more or less real. The only thing you have to do is be nice and cool and normal. Just because it’s the internet doesn’t mean you can dive right into some weird shit.

Internet dating has become way too involved with compatibility-analytics. Tinder gives you a couple of pictures, an age, a name and that’s it. If there’s a spark, then go for it. It’s much riskier than other dating apps and dating sites, which is why we like it. Everyone’s kept in the dark, forced to make surface judgements and then see where it goes from there.

If you want some light-hearted fun and a little risk (in terms of the person you meet, Tinder is 100% confidential), try it out. As shallow as it might be, declaring someone hot or not can be a lot of fun.

However, it is very addictive. If you live in a small town, there is a chance you can cruise through all the Tinder users in your area in one sitting.

Also, apparently it’s not yet available for Android…so…borrow a friend’s iPhone and try it out.

Did I mention that Tinder is popular with people ages 18 to 25 also known as the “hot” demographic? Just something for you to consider.
