Tinder for Hotels Allows You to Socialize While Traveling

It’s exciting when we find new useful apps. The last app that got us really excited was Dropbox. It is still one of our favorites, since it is so useful and functional. We use it to have our pictures automatically transferred from our smartphone to our computer. Now the app HelloTel has us intrigued.

HelloTel has been compared to Tinder, but for the traveler. Tinder is Facebook’s dating app where you scroll through pics. If you find one of interest, you select it. If not, you swipe it away. If the other person has also selected you, you get matched up. HelloTel allows you to do this as a traveler. You can see who you know at the hotel and arrange to meet up so you don’t have to eat alone. Hmmmm. This can be helpful if you have integrity. It can also be potentially harmful if you are tempted to stray.

Technology and apps allow us to hook up with other people to buy goods and services, to reserve a parking spot, to get transportation, to meet people, to do just about anything. There is just something about traveling and hotels and meeting up with someone that seems a little naughty.

Some of us were taught to keep ourselves out of situations that could cause problems. Meeting up with someone while you are traveling alone seems to be one of those situations. Hopefully they won’t add a checkbox for a reason for divorce of HelloTel.
