Love IS In The Air, You Just Have To Swipe Right To Find It

What if I told you that almost 15% of couples, now married, find each other on a dating app?

Love IS In The Air, You Just Have To Swipe Right To Find It

Remember when Tinder was just an app for finding your one night stand? Well, what if it turned into your every-night stand?

Apologies for that horrible phrasing, but I needed to find a witty way to get you into this article — did it work?

What if I told you that almost 15% of couples, now married, find each other on a dating app?

What if I also told you that dating apps are no longer the place people look for a fling but rather serious relationships? Over 44% of women and 38% of men claim to want a partner for more than just one night.

The dating scene has completely changed. All of my friends are meeting their boos on dating apps, one date turns into a serious relationship and then the serious relationship starts to hear wedding bells and then there goes your sunset over a Happily Ever After.

But how do you get to that Happily Ever After?

I was talking to one of my guy friends last week and he was saying what’s hard about dating apps is that it’s all about judging the physical. He was telling me it's hard because when you’re at a bar and see a girl, you can see her for more than who she is physically — you see how she is with her friends, if she’s witty, serious, etc.

On the flip side, he was telling me how it was so much easier to talk to people through the app than it was in person. It takes away a lot of the awkward small talk moments.

I, following this little enlightening conversation, I decided to do my research and tried to find what people look for when they go on Tinder, Bumble, etc.

According to a fancy, schmancy sociologist that works for Tinder:

  • Image is super big, so make sure you’re smiling in your photos! Soft smiles y’all, soft smiles.
  • No group photos (apparently, they look for the hotter person in the pic and no one wants that—you’re the star of this show!)
  • BIOs!! So important, especially for wooing the ladies. So, guys make sure you’re writing the wittiest, most captivating two phrases ever because we won’t look at you the same.
  • Have a bio that starts a conversation! Food, travel, dogs — dogs, dogs are a great go to.

Here’s to your next match being someone that not only shares your love of crème brulee but also knows every single word to every episode of Friends.

Or is that just me? OK, cool.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
