joined Tinder for several reasons, none of which I am proud of.

The most justifiable one is that I recently moved to the Triangle from another city and don't know very many people here.

Most of my married friends seem to be under the impression that Tinder is some kind of app-based portal for free sex. Most of them seemed—sexually, at least—highly desirable. He scrolled down and ticked through the list in earnest. For an ordinary-looking man of my age, Tinder in the Triangle seems to be, roughly, 50 percent people who do not meet your own superficial standards of beauty; 20 percent people who, either because of attractiveness or age, you stand zero chance of matching with; 10 percent people who either quote a Bible verse or tout their NRA membership; 5 percent people who happened to be visiting the area and left their geolocation setting on; and 5 percent bots.

In their minds, you punch in your location, find other people nearby who are ready to have sex, and then go someplace and have sex. He is not the kind of guy to lie about such things, and he reported it was more than half. The 10 percent that remain are those with whom you could conceivably forge some kind of romantic connection.

Hey my name is Jess and I'm new to this whole concept.

Desperate times lead us to some weird places in life I guess. I paint when the inspiration strikes me, and I'm currently attempting to write a novel. Freshly single out of a 9yr relationship so I'm looking for sexy slim ladies like myself.

This is a horribly superficial thing to think, but that's what Tinder is, too.

Do I swipe left and dismiss them and feel bad about myself for being a terrible person?

Maybe this suggests I am a sociopath or that I have more in common than I would like to admit with those Japanese millennials who are only interested in online relationships. —people who spend real money buying things on Farmville. Based on a combination of a woman's photos, personal style, and whatever information she reveals in her "About" section, I can often intuit that we will match.
