Okay, let's be real. We've all used Tinder. Maybe you had a moment of weakness after the bar one night when all your friends went home with their significant others. Maybe you just moved to Montreal and you're looking to make some connections. It's no secret that literally everyone you know is on Tinder—you've probably swiped past them!
Most peoples' first impression of Tinder is that it's a "sex app." You scroll through users in the area, swipe right on the hotties, and if all goes as planned, you meet up pretty soon after. If you've used the app, I don't need to tell you how the rest goes.
Is that first impression still accurate? It seems like more and more Montrealers are actually finding love on Tinder. Second (and third) Tinder dates are becoming more and more common!
Why is this? Is the stigma finally lifting from the quick-fire nature of the app? Are we proving that love at first sight really is a thing? Maybe it's because we're having too much casual sex that we're bound to run into someone we actually may like. I would like to go for option c) all of the above.
Okay, I'll totally admit: I met my current boyfriend on Tinder. Though I may come clean here, whenever I'm faced with the "So, how did you meet?" question, "online" may not be my immediate answer. Tinder might be becoming a more acceptable way to meet partners, but I'm not quite ready to brag about it... just yet.
Are you a Montrealer on Tinder? Did you meet your partner? Spouse? Fiancé(e) on Tinder? Do you avoid it because you just know it's meant for hookups? Tell us your experiences about the app!
