Imagine being on the Hacıosman-Yenikapı metro line and looking around for a man that you like.You might come across someone you find attractive at the Şişhane stop but only if you’re lucky.And we curious creatures are craving to know what people are experiencing on Tinder.Tinder came to be when I was in a committed relationship with a man, who I came to accept after 3 years of to-ing and fro-ing that just wasn’t right for me.He said he’d call the next day and he did so around 3pm. We were both sober, he was still boring, and I didn’t have the stomach for his detached conversation or sloppy kisses. That night when we first met he was smelly as well but I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and hoped that it was because we had been dancing and sweating for a while.But if he still smelled after walking out of his office, it was a no go.I remember seeing one of my best male friends swiping this way and that way on his phone long before I knew what Tinder really was, and thinking to myself that the world must be coming to an end, completely unaware that I, one day in the not so distant future, would be doing just that in the comfort of my own home, in my pajamas, lazing on the couch.
I spent the first month swiping ferociously, mostly left, but sometimes right, and I did get some good matches.
And if Tinder could deliver nice men who called when they said they will, then I was in.
Going on a date with the smelly guy I told you about last week gave me the encouragement I needed to go full force in Tinder.
For those who have yet to experience Tinder first-hand: it is a geo-localized dating application where people connect through their Facebook profiles, ensuring that everyone in the app is a real person.
You select the gender, age range, and distance from which you want to scour for a match.
