Tinder is a funny one. If the video on the website is to be believed, it’s a carefree social app used to meet young, fun and good looking people who hang around exclusively in soft focus, doing things that would look great captured through Instagram filters, for example, carrying balloons or driving vintage cars on the beach.
In reality, the app has a fairly notorious reputation as a sordid digital underworld whose population deals in anonymity, vanity and all out sexual promiscuity.
Perhaps you have a valid reason for not having downloaded Tinder, such as a boyfriend, or a sense of self-respect. But this is where I come in, as I possess neither.
During the next few weeks I am going to dip a toe into the murky waters of Tinder so you don’t have to. Maybe I’ll find the bearded tattooed beefcake I’ve always been looking for, or maybe I’ll just realise that Tinder is the place where love and hope go to die.
Regardless of outcome, I would love to share with you the experiences of my adventure into the heart of modern dating and indecency. Just don’t tell my mum! #ItStartsHere
