It’s rare you hear success stories out of Tinder and it almost makes you think it’s just not possible, but it is.
On this episode, I brought in May and Saahil to discuss their experiences using Tinder. May met her boyfriend of two years using the app and admits that she was surprised she was able to make a lasting relationship out of it. Considering she had been using the app for quite some time and had been on numerous dates, it almost just became a routine for her: match with a guy, send a few messages, go on a date (or a couple more), things would fizzle out, and then repeat. So when she matched with her boyfriend, the same process was expected, but then they kept dating. And soon enough they had the talk of what they were and two years later, they’re still going strong.
Stories like May and her boyfriend are definitely one of the rare few, especially since many who use the app tend to be more than skeptical about really meeting their future significant others. Saahil believes that while the app is a great way to meet people, he hasn’t ever met anyone really substantial or standout and therefor deemed it not really for him. And there are many people who feel this way and much prefer to meet organically in person.
Whether or not it works for you, everyone has their own way of how they want to date. Apps like Tinder, Bumble, etc. are merely tools that help out people to meet others quicker and easier but does not necessarily rule the entire dating game. So ride on friends, that someone is out there and to quote How I Met Your Mother, “I know that you are tired of waiting, and you may have to wait a little while more, but she’s on her way, Ted. And she’s getting here as fast as she can.”
