I'm Addicted to Tinder and Other Tech Shenanigans

Living in the pancreas of Silicon Valley (as the heart has probably shifted to San Francisco), I tend to try out all hot new technologies. Well, not only because of my proximity to so many innovative people and companies, but also because I am building my own startup and like to be inspired by new UI/UX (user interface/user experience), marketing methods, and possible technological integration. So, if you ever take a look at my web viewing history and see lots of porn sites, it's 100% for research purposes.

When telling the majority of my non-tech-related friends about sites I use, like Airbnb (to rent out a room in my house like a hotel), Snapchat (disappearing picture and video texts), or Whatsapp (free texting to anyone in the world), I am largely met with blank stares. Recently, a dating app called, Tinder, made its way to Android. I had been waiting for this moment for a long time, as no less than four people told me about it at SXSW in Austin, but it was only on Apple's iOS.

In the last week, after Tinder got all its bugs fixed, I've been addicted to the app. The premise is simple. Tinder takes your location, shows you pictures of girls in your proximity and you swipe the picture to the right if you like her, and swipe to the left if you don't. If you both swipe each other, then you can start messaging each other via the app. I've had like 20 matches so far, but I don't even care. I just like looking at pictures of complete strangers. I swipe whenever I'm bored, which is a lot. I'm amazed I haven't run out of girls nearby.

Check out this hot interaction I recently had:

Don't hate the playa, hate the game. Me and Bernice are going steady now. I see her at least every three days online, or whenever my Mom gives me my allowance. I'm doing extra chores this week around the house so that I can see Bernice for longer than an hour. I love her. 

I think this is it, guys. Time to hang up the jersey.
