Jennifer Thomas was trying to get over a breakup when she swiped right on a dude named Rich O’Dea, who was also nursing the wounds of a relationship gone wrong. The two went out and really connected. They connected so well, in fact, that only several short months after the date, Thomas is donating a kidney to O’Dea’s…
Rejection is tough. Just a few days after Tinder lashed out in a choreographed and ill-advised Twitter attack over a silly magazine story about its app, the company has fired its short-lived CEO. Yes, Tinder’s now-former chief executive Chris Payne is having a tough week.
In a recent article, Tinder and the Dawn of the “Dating Apocalypse”, Vanity Fair writer Nancy Jo Sales threw seven kinds of shade on Tinder and everything it stands for.
