At last, no more roaming the streets of your town hoping Cupid’s arrow will guide you to that dreamy B-movie star or hot relative of the mayor. Because thanks to Tinder’s new Verified Profiles, those local celebrities on Tinder will now be verified—which, in theory, means your dream of dating them could come true!
Last Monday, on the night of the blizzard that talked a big talk but then never came, I was batting around an idea, one of many that had to do with the dating app Tinder, with my colleague Sam.
Tinder is a great way to find
hookups romance near you, but it still relies on you and your potential partner finding each other mutually attractive. Since you can't always rely on that, why not boost your odds—say, with a robotic finger that can "like" up to 900 Tinderers per hour?
A Japanese cellphone application called Hitomebo uses GPS to help you record where you spotted good looking men or women. It also helps facilitate hook-ups.
