Today, one of our "normal" colleagues approached us about a new app all of her college-age friends and roommates use. It's called Tinder.
(By "normal," we mean a non-gadget-obsessed person who isn't an early adopter of new technology)
Tinder is a simple dating app that anonymously finds out who likes your looks nearby. If you happen to think the other person is good looking too, it offers an intro. If not, the person never knows you weren't a fan.
It's basically a new-age version of Hot or Not that also allows you to meet people.
You have to connect the app to your Facebook profile but don't worry, Tinder say it will never post anything to your wall.
Here's more on how Tinder works:
- Tinder shows you someone nearby it thinks you should know, who's single and about your age.
- You can anonymously like this person or skip to the next suggestion.
- If someone you like happens to like you back, then Tinder makes an introduction & lets you chat within the app.
