I joined Tinder as a dog
J Thoendell stashed this in Apps
I was feeling bored and lonely, so I joined Tinder as a dog. I set up my profile as a 26-year-old golden retriever named Hero, a male dog who was looking for both men and women within a 100-mile radius.
This is totally what Tinder is like:
After four days as a male dog, I had 206 matches—154 guys and 52 girls. Not bad for a dog with no job or interests.
I switched Hero to a female dog, looking for men and women. Even though it was only 9am on a weekday morning, I was immediately barraged with responses. After roughly two hours—during which my phone vibrated almost nonstop with notifications—I had 300 male matches, and one female match.
I stopped being a female dog after a day, and deleted the app. I got sick of my phone being overloaded with Tinder notifications and awful messages. Even if you’re a dog, online dating is terrible.
