It’s completely insane, says marketing director and founder of the app Justin Mateen to The app uses Facebook to retrieve some information about a user like name, gender, age, sexual orientation, and a handful of images. Tinder seeks the potential candidates in your area.We may not have good words for ‘dating’ but we certainly have a great word for that spouse-without-a-wedding-ring we have back home: “samboer.” Which means “together-liver.” And yes, that word works better in Scandinavian.🙂 If you live with someone in Scandinavia, and especially if you have kids, you are as good as any married couple would be in your country. So the few times we have to use the word ‘date’ (usually to describe something foreigners do) we use the English word for it. So how do we figure on top of these lists of “happiest people in the world,” you wonder? The Scandinavian word for ‘date’ is really old-fashioned and one my grandmother might have used but probably didn’t because I don’t think she dated either.
And how do we procreate if we don’t date and don’t marry?
The only thing the user needs to deal with is to decide whether the person in the picture proposed by the app to you is attractive or not. If you do not like the candidate, you swipe to the left.
If two people like each other’s profile picture, then Tinder open up chat.
Still there are many sites where you can meet some nice people, just have patience and understand that they are a bit shy before they get to know you better.
They tend to warm up a bit when they get to know you and trust you. All the members there switched over to Facebook or more specialised nice sites.
