Late to the party, I open a bottle of red and kick back for a merry evening of swiping. When it comes down to it, I am a bit of snob and a bit of slut.It immediately becomes clear that Tinder is horribly addictive, like a very aggressive, sleazy game of snap. There is an argument that Tinder is a progressive social construct which is helping to make online dating acceptable and that that is a good thing. If you are not capable of holding real-life conversations in the hope of eliciting romantic outcomes, then you should not be allowed to use technology to cheat.

Given that smartphones have encroached on every other aspect of our lives, it was only a matter of time before we sunk low enough to surrender our most base instincts to our palm-held masters.

Well, congratulations humanity, you’ve gone and done it: you no longer have to leave your house to casually survey eye-candy and make that silent personal decision on first sight — would you or wouldn’t you?

You no longer have to pay for a drink before scanning a nightclub, compiling a mental list of those around you: ‘yes, no, no, no, yes, hell yes, no, no, both at the same or neither’, etc.

You are matched, which fills you with a warm sense of satisfaction approximate to about an eighth of the feeling you get when you catch the eye of someone pretty and just know. And is it just me or has every girl in London been to that festival in India where everyone throws paint about? You had me at the picture of you with Michael Portillo. The generic blurred picture of you in a nightclub with a cocktail that was clearly so expensive you thought you better record it for posterity. My adventure into the Tinder vortex taught me many things.

Once you are matched, the painful private conversation can begin and the rest is up to you. Right swipe: worth the gamble it wasn’t the ugly duckling. Not least that the British gap-year student appears to have done more cultural damage to -Vietnam lately than the Americans ever achieved. It wasn’t the ‘look at sensitive me with African orphan’ pictures that annoyed me the most.Maybe you really like this guy and you want to explore a relationship with him. You can say something like “Hey Jake, I want to chat with you about something that’s a bit vulnerable for me to share. ” If it’s true, start off with saying what you enjoyed about it. (Assuming that everything was consensual, having sex was a mutual choice by two adults.Or perhaps you’ve never had sex too soon and you just got caught up in the moment. There is nothing wrong or bad about it.) This next one is important. Say something like “Thank you so much for listening to me.And if that is the case, that’s great information to have so soon in dating him.Sure, you could have not had sex and hopefully gotten the same information.Jeffrey has been featured in Huffington Post, Washington Post, ABC News and the Good Men Project.
