Anyone who’s spent any considerable amount of time on Tinder knows that, like any service promising random lonely people quick and easy access to a horde of horned-up singles over the Internet, it kind of sucks. It’s filled with fake profiles, tries to sell you on premium services, and even if you do meet someone,…
When I give the dating app LoveFlutter my Twitter handle, it rewards me with a 28-axis breakdown of my personality: I’m an analytic Type A who’s unsettlingly sex-focused and neurotic (99th percentile). On the sidebar where my “Personality Snapshot” is broken down in further detail, a section called “Chat-Up Advice”…
Tinder’s been around for nearly five years now, but pop culture is still catching up to the fact that this is the new standard for dating. We’ve seen the montages on shows like Insecure, Master of None, or Broad City, where our lead lines up a series of depressing app dates. As of last year a Tinder-themed rom-com was …
A special paid-tier of Tinder with several shiny, special features is finally coming to the US of A.
Today is International Tiger Day, and to celebrate, PETA would like to stop people from sitting on/high-fiving/cuddling/bottle feeding/trolling/chilling with tigers for their Tinder profiles. Tigers everywhere are pleased.
Hollywood screenwriter Derek Connolly is suing Ada Hui, a woman he met on Tinder and dated for several months, claiming that she threatened to go full “Entourage S7 E7” and ruin his career through blackmail.
Tinder began as a cute little mobile app that evolved to become a reliably irritating mobile hookup service. Soon though, much like its ancestors OKCupid, Match and even AOL (a/s/l), there will also be a desktop version to service your chronic loneliness.
Here’s a story that includes an old house in the middle of nowhere, a stranger lurking in the shadows (and not in the friendly Boo Radley way) and a popular hook-up app. It just might be the scariest modern dating story you ever hear...but is it real?
Hinge has officially switched from a balls-to-the-wall free hookup app model to a subscription-based service for the real relationship-seekers among us. Which means you’re gonna have to pay to escape the dark trenches of loneliness.
Despite remaining curiously unrecognized as an official sport, Tinder appears to be enjoying a strong presence at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio.
Tinder recently went to war with 3nder, an app designed to help users find some three-person fun. Tinder’s primary complaint was the similarity between the two names—3nder, evidently, was just too close to Tinder. 3nder disputed this at the time, but now, in what appears to be an effort to duck the thorny legal…
Professional swimmer and 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte is searching for love on Tinder, the Mordor of dating apps—and he is learning so many things, guys, so many things.
You might remember 3nder, the oddly-named dating app for finding your very own three-person sexy time party. Well it seems that Tinder, a dating app with a similar name, is threatening to sue the company behind the app.
As the original and most successful dating show, it’s impossible to launch a new iteration of the matchmaker format without garnering comparisons to The Bachelor franchise. Of course, many others have left their mark on our culture throughout the years (Temptation Island, Rock of Love, Dating Naked), but the producers…
I originally leveraged online dating to begin seeing average-sized women. Before moving back to New York a few years ago, I had only dated little women— i.e., women who were born with dwarfism. At bars or parties, my social anxiety, the kind that comes with being a little person myself, made it difficult to gauge an…
A man SFist has described as a “Tinder enthusiast” has been detained in Colorado and is currently under suspicion for allegedly murdering his ex-girlfriend and hiding her body in a storage unit.
