Today’s the last day of the launch of my complete “get laid on
Tinder” system; tonight at midnight, the price goes up
forever. To top
off this even with a bang, I’ve put together a detailed look at Tinder
– and why, despite some new up-and-comers in the dating app space,
Tinder remains the crown jewel of all dating apps.
Long ago, when a man wanted to meet a woman he was interested in –
one who was not only fun and interesting, but also very attractive – he
has just had to rely on luck or subject himself to the frenzied and
unreliable environments of bars and clubs.
And then, at the beginning of the turn-of-the-century, some smart
people who wanted to take advantage of the Internet age created online
dating websites. They
wanted to use the potential that the Internet had of connecting people
locally, statewide, nationally, and globally, and apply that potential
to a romantic context. They wanted to be able to bring people together
and be a conduit, a spark of people falling in love with mates who they
would have never otherwise been exposed to.
But online dating added setbacks: it was stigmatized; most sites
were poorly designed; and after a while, the hot girls found that there
were just far too many droves of thirsty, desperate men trying to get
any kind of female contact or acknowledgment that they possibly could –
which often manifested itself in a deluge of dick pics. And because of
this unpleasant realization, they began to vacate the online dating
scene and leave it for girls who were truly desperate.
And then… in the late 2000s… there came the app revolution.
Suddenly you could do everything on your phone. You could check
play music, and even handle your finances. So it was inevitable that,
just like with the outset of the Internet age, someone would take
advantage of this revolution in order to bring people together
romantically. A few apps tried, but none saw true success until the
advent of Tinder in 2012.
Tinder came and swept through the app world. It really put dating
apps on the map.
What really got people was its effectiveness and
simplicity. You simply look at someone’s photo, see how close you are,
and then either swipe yes or no. And if you match, you could message
them and potentially meet up.
And the best part was: it was
anonymous. No one knew that you were on the app. Even people who
across your profile could only see it momentarily unless they matched
with you. And if they did not, then you would disappear into oblivion
and they would probably forget you soon enough.
icing on the
cake: you could use the app from anywhere.
Like most things, in the beginning even Tinder was considered a
bit fringe. It was considered – much like its online dating
counterparts – for people who were weird or lonely or socially inept or
otherwise outside of the norm of society. But slowly… and surely… it
became more widespread.
Then in 2013, it started spreading like
wildfire. Suddenly, everyone was on it: that girl from work, girls from
the university campuses, girls from bars. Finally, something had managed to compel
and keep hot, normal,
socially adept girls in the online realm.
Now, the app is as ubiquitous as Google maps. Everyone has
Tinder. But the best part about it is
that it is not online dating. People are not on it to find their soul
mate. They are on this king of dating apps for one reason and
one reason only: and that is to get laid.
No pretense. No misunderstanding. Even for the women who pretend to
be motivated by other reasons, this underlying truth still rings loud
