However, as I'm sure you've noticed all over the media, the hook-up culture has resulted in a backlash of frustrated Millennials, who want to mean more than that to other people.
On Tinder, we're not being asked things like "What are your passions?
What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs. Carbon dating is only accurate back a few thousand years.
So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).
It's likely that the person might work in your building or go to the same Starbucks as you every morning, and that's pretty cool. The female users would rather share an experience with their matches or go on real dates, but instead of being invited out to dinner, they're invited to “come on over.”If the female users aren't happy, you've got a problem. Without getting the women on board, you're basically screwed.
Women want to share experiences with men, as a way of bonding.
In her recent Vanity Fair article, Nancy Jo Sales said it perfectly: Because of Tinder, romance really was being “swiped” away. We're all catching on to the fact that the swipe-culture normalized by Tinder has made us more shallow, desensitized, dehumanized, exploited and a hell of a lot lazier.
The fact that even the app itself doesn't ask us for any of that information is pretty much the company implying those things don't matter. Tinder welcomes anyone void of integrity to exploit it for all the wrong reasons, and they asked for the backlash they received by allowing all of us to judge each other, solely on our physical appearance.
But why is it especially common to be treated like nothing more than an option in a superficial numbers game, in which we're matched with each other based on nothing more than our mutual respect for the other's "sexiness."The path to instant gratification is lit up with arrows that point to one simple solution: download Tinder, start swiping, and you'll instantly have plenty of options to choose from.
What we soon realize, though, is Tinder dehumanizes us.
Super Date, a dating app that focuses on real-life experiences rather than looks, seems to have used Tinder as motivation of what to do, which is great.
On Super Date, instead of swiping right to a hot woman's face, you can join a Super Date (think a seafood restaurant with a view, a beautiful hike or a wine tasting night), and you'll be matched with other app users who want to share that experience.
