The app itself is like a human conveyor belt. Swipe right if you like what you see, swipe left if you never want to see it again.

Are the people on Tinder normal?
It turns out, while there is no shortage of selfies, shirtless photos and tiger-petting pictures (which I still don't understand) the majority of the people on Tinder looked rather wholesome. I continued my quest for the perfect Tinder date…
When I matched with Benny, we clicked immediately. His opening line was a joke about flamingos which, albeit incredibly random, caught my attention amongst all of the "Hi" and "Hey" messages one must wade through to find a match with personality.
As we continued chatting, he explained that he was only in the states for two weeks for a wedding. He has lived in London for the last four years but grew up in Australia. Cue dreamy accent sigh.
