On Wednesday, Tinder introduced a new “Reactions” feature which lets users send each other a range of animated emoji. And in support of this feature, the dating app has launched a bizarre new campaign to explain how these cutesy animations are the solution to skeezy behavior online.
Summer’s here, the weather’s hot and sticky. What did you expect Tinder to do? It has needs...
The thing that’s wrong with dating apps is the same thing that’s wrong with the rest of the internet: people. Or at least that’s the gamble of First, a new activity-based dating app where you’ll know next to nothing about who you’re meeting until you meet them.
Let’s make a statement: Gyms are not appropriate places to find dates.
Today, Tinder introduced a new update that expands the platform’s gender options. Now, instead of choosing between “man” or “woman,” a user can search for and add any term that reflects their gender identity.
Tinder’s latest features have a very specific feel: they could lead to innocent fun, but really, they’re just a cover for far filthier activities. Tinder Social, for example, was touted as “a better way to go out with friends,” but it was really just an orgy finder. And the app’s newest foray, Tinder Boost, is no…
Music is an important indicator of a person’s character. I refuse to date anyone who regularly listens to Dave Matthews Band, for example, because Dave Matthews Band is terrible. But sometimes you don’t discover this important information until it’s too late, and then you’re stuck on a lame date with someone who has…
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…
Here’s a PSA for anyone who was thinking about selling meth on a dating app: Don’t do it!
When I’m trying to get laid, the last thing on my mind is whether or not I should be looking for another job. But Bumble, the dating app founded by ex-Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, seeks to address this issue with a new feature that essentially amounts to a gamified version LinkedIn.
“Hmm, should I listen to this Barenaked Ladies song again?” you ask yourself. “Yeah, sure, why not, it’s not like my future partners are going to see it.” Think again!
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.
If there’s one thing missing from Tinder, it’s group sex. The swipe-happy app is great for getting laid old school-style—waking up in the morning next to someone you will no doubt forget about by the afternoon—but it’s less helpful for finding some more-than-four fun.
“Talk Bernie to me,” shouted no one ever on a dating app, and yet that is happening: a very small army of self-motivated young women are using Tinder, Bumble, and all the other hellish, spiritually depleting find-love-quick programs on your telephone to campaign for Bernie Sanders. What’s it like to be on the…
Not only did Tinder cofounder and CEO Sean Rad comes off as extremely dumb in a recent interview, he may have violated the Security & Exchange Commission’s quiet period for Tinder’s imminent IPO. What’s the word for that?
South Dakota’s only gay club is dead when I show up on a Friday night. A Katy Perry song thumps on a dance floor so vacant it looks fit for an open house. There’s a lone lesbian chain-smoking outside and two guys slurping vodka near a row of empty bar chairs.
These days, you can find love anywhere—in a bar, up a mountain or sat alone on the toilet—thanks to your smartphone. This short film explores that idea: can a regular guy find his love match on a crowded commuter train?
So Bumble is the new Hinge, which was the new Tinder, which was the new OkCupid. That’s what happens with dating apps: The cool new one inevitably gets overrun by creeps and BDSM enthusiasts, and a cooler, newer, better one comes along to weed out the riffraff and offer yet another gimmicky way to find love, or at…
I have never seen an ad for a product that so completely sums up all the reasons why you would never, ever want to use it. The MissTravel app helps “attractive females” score free vacations from “generous males” who just want a first date. And this insanely creepy video is supposed to sell you on it.
