Social media has revolutionized the way we create and maintain relationships. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have allowed us to maintain friendships from miles apart. Some people have even been lucky enough to find their significant others through social media.

This form of random engagement has become the norm for us. It’s not such an outlandish thought to consider that you may meet your soul mate through social media. Normally, when one thinks of online dating or anything of that nature, they think of sites like eHarmony or one of the many other sites that have seemed to be geared toward an older crowd and a little less spontaneous.

Not to fear; there’s an app out now that answers the call for those looking for love without it being so overly complicated by dating sites.
Tinder is the newest dating app to hit the market, and it is remarkably simple to use. All you’ve got to do is create a profile for free and link it with your Twitter and Facebook accounts. You select your location and provide a brief bio and after that you are on your way.

Tinder forces users to keep it simple. You cannot add extensive photo galleries or create a long list of interests and hobbies. No, Tinder automatically syncs the interests you’ve indicated on the other social media profiles you’ve created and merges them with your Tinder account, making it nice and easy for you to set up your profile. By now I’ve told you all about how easy the app is without even telling you how to use it.
Tinder recognizes that the whole idea of connecting with anyone on a romantic level is about physical attraction first. You can harp on how much personality matters, but your first attraction to anyone is of the physical kind. With Tinder, you simply filter through images of men or women of your age group (depending on your preference) who are within a selected mile radius of your location. You simply slide their picture to the left if you don’t find them attractive and slide to the right if you do. On the other end, people are doing the same, and eventually you end up with a match where someone has liked what they see of you and vice versa. The app then allows you to interact with your matches through messages. Email addresses and phone numbers are omitted to make the interaction safe and harmless.
It’s actually a pretty healthy way to establish a connection with someone without any risk involved. You already know you find each other attractive; you know that you are in the same given area. Now all that’s left is a little conversation to determine whether or not a date is the next step or just to keep it at a friendly level. Either way, you are in complete control. Tinder introduces matchmaking made easy in the new digital world we live in. It may be just perfect for you. Visit your app store, and download it for absolutely FREE! Who knows, you may end up finding whom you’ve been hoping for this whole time.
