On the Death and Taxes website, Joe Veix looks at what it is like to be on Tinder, a dating app for those looking for "immediacy and simplicity". Except that his profile was that of a dog named Hero who would bark at anyone that engaged in a chat with him.
For those unfamiliar with Tinder, its a dating app popular mainly for its immediacy and simplicity. It presents photos of someone nearby, along with a short profile. If you like them, you swipe right; if you dont, you swipe left. If you both swipe right, youre matched, and you can chat with each other to arrange a date.
Whenever I had a free moment Id swipe right on every profile. I got matches almost immediately. If they messaged me, Id bark at them.
