Especially after most of them spent the summer running into all the boring people in their hometown dating pools.
Your mutual Facebook friends and interests are also shown, in case you thought it was shallow like. Unless you start getting no matches, then, by all means, spread the love more liberally (and re-evaluate some life choices). Once you pick your preferences, the app will find people nearby on Tinder and ask you if you’re up for chatting. Rejection is kept to a minimum as you never know if someone ‘lefted’ you– you’re only connected if you both ‘like’ each other. The relatively new dating app has been downloading its way across Irish college campuses, and now sees 350m swipes a day worldwide with Ireland having one of the highest adoption rates of all countries it was launched in. You download the app, link it to your Facebook profile (nobody on Facebook will know, phew) and your face is there for all to judge.But sure you know all this, here are 16 experiences that all Tinder users go through: You’ll eventually download it out of curiosity, boredom, or crushing, soul destroying loneliness. Listen, we all know what’s going on here, but don’t do it. They’ll think it’s ‘sad’ at first but then get completely addicted, even those in relationships.You can chop and change your four photos based on your Facebook pictures. It’s the thing everyone is going to be making ruthless snap judgements on you over. It’s a hard graft to realise who the person you’re judging is if it’s a group photo. Collaborative Tindering becomes a thing, and whenever you leave your phone around you come back to multiple matches you certainly did NOT consent to. While Tinder promises that you’ll never be shown a Facebook friend, it still doesn’t stop the unexpected from appearing. Remember when Lindsay Lohan was matched with her brother?
The proximity factor also means that office situations can get a bit awkward, but we all know that the unspoken rule here is to swipe left to all. You’ll change your orientation to check out which of the girls/guys are signed up to Tinds.
Launched in 2012, Tinder is a social-media style app that facilitates casual dating via a process that's even more low-maintenance than speed-dating.
It's the natural progression of dating in the climate of digital inter-connectivity that most everyone is engaged in today.
It's like logging on to a crowded bar, where everyone is looking for something, it just may not be you.
Don't worry, however, because the process of rejection is veiled, taking all the lingering disappointment out of striking out at bat. You've hit up the app store, installed the application and integrated your Facebook profile in order to begin generating matches. You don't want to go into any process that could lead to a relationship with a frivolous attitude, but you certainly don't want to stress yourself out, either.
The successful runs toward home plate, though, feel just as sweet. Although close to 80% of Tinder users say they are on the app in order to find long-term love, the reality of such a user-friendly dating process is most people are going to keep rolling the dice until they can convince themselves they won't find anything better.
