Gardening dating platform
And yet, the name Tinder is now so synonymous with online dating that's it's almost a generic trademark, like Hoover and Sellotape. Only the other day, a perfectly respectable colleague in her mid-40s turned to me and said "Willard, is it swiping right or swiping left that's the good one or the bad one on Tinder?
" (As any Telegraph reader should know, the easy way to remember is Left – think: the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn and Bolshevism – is the bad one, and Right -Thatcher, the Union flag, Apple pie – the good.) My colleague is hardly the typical Tinder user I'd imagined – she's in her early 40s, divorced and very successful – but since getting on the app she's met plenty of lovely guys in a similar position.
The match that lit the fire was an article in Vanity Fair that suggested the online dating platform was hastening the "dating apocalypse" by offering singletons' an abundance of short term liaisons. Not so, screamed Tinder from its Twitter account, before launching a stream of on-message missives about how "Tinder creates experiences" and "meaningful connections" (the tirade, though heartfelt, eventually prompted an admittance from the company that it had perhaps "overreacted").The system takes into account what flavors you prefer, and shows you what plants will thrive in the next 10 days.“One of the challenges people have when they try gardening and they don’t find success is they’re really planting the wrong thing at the wrong time,” Leiter says.And thirdly – perhaps most importantly – Tinder is the first dating app that is better for women than men. On Tinder, women only get messaged by men they find attractive, rather than drowning under the barrage of messages they get from unfiltered, fat, balding weird hopefuls on regular dating sites.Gardening has long been associated with a certain type of person: they’re retired or a bit of a hippie, they have a sprawling yard, an abundance of free time and an arsenal of straw hats.
