Pleasure or Pain () - IMDb
With Tinder, the pretext is to hook-up, but the real pleasure is derived from the Tindering process. Tinder is just the latest example for the sexualisation of urban gadgets: What it does, however, is to increase average levels of attractiveness compared to the real world.
Given that most people spend a great deal of time curating their Facebook profiles — uploading selfies from Instagram and reporting well calculated and sophisticated food, music, and film interest — one is left wondering how on earth Tinder users are single in the first place … but only until you meet them.
Like any successful internet service, Tinder enables people to fulfil some basic evolutionary and social needs. This is an important point: Just like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, Tinder enables people to get along, albeit in a somewhat infantile, sexual and superficial way.
The algorithm method: how internet dating became everyone's route to a perfect love match
It also enables us to get ahead, nourishing our competitive instincts by testing and maximising our dating potential. And lastly, Tinder enables users to satisfy their intellectual curiosity: As much as critics who are beginning to resemble puritans or conservatives don't want to hear it, Tinder is an extension of mainstream real-world dating habits, especially compared to traditional online dating sites. This has been an important lesson for data enthusiasts who have tried to sterilise the game of love by injecting rigorous decision-making and psychometric algorithms into the process.
Well, it turns out that people are a lot more superficial than psychologists thought. They would rather judge 50 pictures in two minutes than spend 50 minutes assessing one potential partner.
This reminds me of a TV show we created a couple of years ago; we profiled over 3, singletons using state-of-the-art psychological tests and created couples based on psychological compatibility… but ignored looks and race.
So, just like the social dynamics at a bar, Tindering comprises a series of simple and intuitive steps: Clearly, psychologists have a lot of work to do before they can convince daters that their algorithms are more effective.
This is not a cynical statement. Let's face it, if it weren't for Valentine's Day and the engagement industry, we would have officially moved beyond romanticism by now. My own brother claims that the ease of getting to know someone relatively well online before meeting up means that there is less of an expectation to flash the cash whilst desperately trying to initially impress someone thank God.
The Pain (and Pleasure) of Millennial Dating
For those looking for casual fun urhum… these apps are a godsend. A few photos and a postcode is enough for many to make the absolute most of their young, wild and free days.
In a way, these apps have made the university gold rush almost obsolete.
Fast forward three years and they are now engaged and living together. Sounds implausible for most of you right? Well… I said it was possible, not common.
They probably copy and pasted the same opening line to everyone they matched with after swiping right to Every. The temptation to present a perfect image of yourself on a social profile is too tantalising for most.
Along with the dawn of the Snapchat filter, nearly every profile gives the impression of the user being a sociable, outgoing, successful, travel-obsessed, animal loving saint. Sometimes these apps just remove the organic nature of meeting someone in the traditional way.
But in all fairness, this more modern way of dating for millennials may be a positive thing. People are able to meet others in a quick and easy way, removing embarrassment and awkwardness.
