Tinder Taylor works as a sports agent, so it doesn't take long for our Tinder tête-à-tête to segue to a shared love of college football. Two days later, he sweetly asks me to dinner. Common interests and visible manners? I accept.
I started to get message after message from guys wanting to know about my tagline. I have always been open and honest about my sobriety, so I was happy to answer them. The most common question I would get was: "Does it bother you to be around drinking?" And the answer is no.
The concept of "the one" seems as antiquated as chaperones and dance cards. So, what happens when you meet someone that makes you challenge that belief; someone who makes you wonder if all the romantic notions that your friends have been spewing might be true after all?
It did take me a few minutes to get used to the fact that I was, for better or worse, dating online. This unnerved me. Forever I'd boasted that I would never do online dating. I wasn't that desperate, and losers met girls online. Not me. No, no.
If Tinder is your favorite travel companion, then you may want to adjust your itinerary. Yahoo Travel asked the dating app to rank the countries with the most Tinder users. The result is a lineup of beautiful places where you'll also find big pools of beautiful suiters.
It wasn't that I didn't know how to date girls, it was that I didn't know how to date anybody. Before this year, I had been on three real dates, and all of them were with boys I had previously spent time with in group settings. I didn't know how to go on a first date.
This is a modern dating experiment. One girl. Five dating sites. Hundreds of chats. Thirty days. Thirty dates. Eighteen guys. (?) boyfriend. To start at the beginning, click here -- or jump right in at date nine below.
Today is the day of my second date with OkCupid Taylor. It is also the day of my second date with Tinder Oliver*. It is also my third double-header of dates in a row. Something tells me I will be sleeping very hard tonight.
Anyone who has ever met me would attest to the fact that I am a very logical person. This clearly does not lend itself to highly romantic ideas like "love at first sight". If you are like me, then you can use Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) principles to guide you!
Vancouver-based developer Justin Long invented a Tinder bot that automates the already-expedited, mobile matchmaking process. Leveraging facial recognition algorithm Eigenfaces, Long's bot swipes both right and left on its creator's behalf.
