Speed dating dunedin new zealand
Tinder, an app that is proving to be the latest craze in online dating, is making its mark on New Zealand, having been launched in the United States in September. A photo of you wearing a Bridget Jones-esque Christmas jumper. You and your mum wearing matching reindeer antlers. Having a display name that is slang for a female body part.
Tinder connects to your Facebook profile and uses your GPS location to find potential matches near you.
You get to scroll through pictures of other single people in the area, and you can tick or cross to say whether you like them or not.
If a mutual match occurs, Tinder launches a chat thread between the two of you (if they don't like you back, they won't know you gave them the nod). Before I realised this was an option, I was being recommended more 18-year-olds than are enrolled at your local high school, and just to balance out the scales at the other end, I also had a 66-year-old thrown in the mix. Once you've 'matched' with someone, it's a bit hard to know where to go from there. Be careful with the swiping function - if you aren't paying attention, you think you're scrolling through the available photos of some eligible bachelor in your area. I'm assuming it's yours, and I'm running for the hills.
