I’m Done With Tinder Forever
It’s been an awful experience and a drain on my most important resource. Time. Like everyone else, I started swiping in 2013. Everyone was doing it. Everyone was going on dates and getting into relationships of all kinds. Me, I just saw it as a terrible commoditisation of flesh. But I was hooked. Fast forward 9 years to last Sunday and I went on my last ever Tinder date. It was pleasant, even nice. A fitting end. But unmistakably an end. All of that time, all of that anxiety and rejection and letting people down comes to an end. I rejoin the real world.
