I did something similar before a trip to Scandinavia a couple years ago. This was before Tinder had a paid option to change location; I had to spoof my GPS to make it look like I was in Stockholm or CPH before I got there. A month ahead of time is a little bit much to try to keep a conversation going before being able to meet but matching up 4 days to a week before I would be in town worked well and I met some really cool people.
