I don't think I know a single person who isn't Tindering. Swiping left, left, left, left, until a face finally catches your eye. Muttering under your breath when you get swipe-happy and see the partner of your dreams drift off into the blackhole of 'never to be seen again'. Getting excited when you match with your curret favourite hottie, only to become discouraged when they don't message back.
I Tinder. Yes I use Tinder as a verb now; to tinder. I see people I know on there, as well as men I've already dated. In some ways it makes the world seem so large and infinite, and in others reminds me how small it is.
Don't get me wrong, I think Tinder along with other online dating platforms are brilliant. Long gone are the days were you have to rely on chance encounters and bravery to approach someone new to date.
I was thinking today that in all sectors comes ebbs and flows. Perhaps the trend of Tinder (with its limited ability to portray what you're looking for, and what you're really like as a person) will result in a resurgence in old-school matchmaking services? Will we get bored of finding out that the spark we feel on Tinder is pointless as the person is on a completely different life page to us?
