Well folks. This is it. The final blog. Before we begin, let me just assure you that it is your support and guidance that has brought me this far. You are my constituents; without you, I would be nowhere and many ladies would be hankering for a Tinder match with David Fanelli. But no. You were there. So thank you.
Now onto serious matters. As soon as I publish this blog post, I am 100% deleting the Tinder app. I do not want to ever be associated with that application again. It has been the bane of my existence for this semester, and honestly I barely even used it. It has just sat there mocking me for far too long, and it’s for it to be gone from my life. No longer must I sit there waiting for a match. No longer must I swipe right on literally every person. Just thinking about getting rid of this app is so good. You have no idea. Anyways, let’s have some real talk.
As surprising as it may sound, I managed to get a match on Tinder. But this is the kicker; the girl messaged me first. Now honestly I didn’t reply because I will soon be leaving the world of Tinder. Needless to say, it’s nice to think that after 9 blog posts about this godforsaken app, I got a girl to message me first. I can’t fathom why she would do that, but I’m impressed. Keep in mind this is without a bio or anything of that nature. So 10/10 points for me on Tinder.
Throughout this whole process, I have noticed my distaste for Tinder and anything related, and I have also noticed how odd people are on social media. I’ve definitely discussed this before, but there’s no doubt that people act differently on Tinder and other similar social media applications. They’re more open, judgmental, and they’re not afraid to take risks. Some of this is good, albeit most of this is bad. To me, social media applications such as Tinder are really just destroying the youth today. Similar to increased cell phone use, people are forgetting how to communicate. Although I’m no expert, most Tinder conversations are the stupidest thing; people talk about very generic things and “flirting,” but in reality it’s just people saying things so they can hook up. That’s another problem with Tinder; it’s detracting from the meaning of the word “relationship.” Tinder is designed to help facilitate the forming of interactions between people who (hopefully) find each other attractive. But this hardly ever happens. Most love stories don’t begin on Tinder (although I could be wrong). The point is is that Tinder and other similar apps have made dating and relationships extremely informal and “just another thing,” when in reality they are crucial to our development as humans. A relationship is by no means on the same level as Tinder. I can say that with the utmost confidence. But alas, people still turn to Tinder for these types of things, and maybe that’s why society faces so many issues; people can’t form relationships.
To sum it up, here is a video of Conan O’Brien screwing around on Tinder:
I don’t want to go on too long of a rant about Tinder because I just want to forget that I was ever part of it. Just admitting that brings pains to my heart. However, I would sincerely like to thank you for reading my blog throughout this year. While you were probably forced to read it because you have to get a good grade, it means a lot to me knowing that somewhere out there people actually care what I have to say, even if it is about something as trivial as Tinder. So from the bottom of my heart, and with a little sadness, it is time for me to say farewell. Goodbye, my friends. Perhaps one day, when this is all over, we shall see each other again. But not yet. There is still work to be done.
