A woman has detailed her experiences of a week of always swiping right on Tinder.
Journalist Yvette Caster described how she used the dating app – usually associated with casual sex – in order to “meet attractive men who meet my high standards.”The app connects to a user’s Facebook account, offering individuals the chance to meet possible ‘dates’ from nearby.
Profiles consist of a short bio and up to five photographs.
Left swipes reject offers, while right swipes allow the users to send one another private messages.
Writing for the , Ms Caster claims she usually only swipes right once every 50 men but admits this strategy usually results in either “sleazy pick-up lines followed by unsolicited pictures or their penis or even indecent videos.”By “opening the floodgates,” as Ms Caster describes it, she receives scores of messages from different men – and not all are terrible.“I can't quite believe so many of them are being so polite,” she writes on the fourth day of the experiment, continuing: “Maybe I really could find a boyfriend this way after all.”Ms Caster goes on three “nice dinner dates” with men from the app, and although none of the men she matches with – or goes on a date with – proves to be “The One” the experiment appears to have changed her mind about the casual dating app.: “I did have some lovely evenings - good company and intelligent conversation.” And appears to intimate that she would change her online habits after the experiment."If you’re feeling a bit ugly, or just miss flirting, you can do a lot worse than closing your eyes and swiping right," she writes for also expressing her admiration for "players" dedication to the "admin" of maintaining so many conversations with women online simultaneously.
