Always the swiper. Never the swiped!

When Tinder appeared I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread (would love to know where this saying originated). The simplicity of it was great and they seemed to very rapidly build up a user database, so there was no shortage of new faces.

Eventually, however, the reality of it struck. Nobody was swiping me. I was doing plenty of swiping but getting nothing back in return. I realised then it was a beauty contest and I wasn’t a contender. The app overall is pretty decent, and I did try to use a “Boost” once to moderate success, but alas, nothing ever came out of it.

That was the end of Tinder for me.
