Experience-based swiping apps could be the way forward in online dating. Last year, Festival Mode was launched to connect Tinder users during music festivals. And Tinder U was a university version of the popular app.
And let’s face it: dating app ennui is real in 2019. Just last week, we reported on the newest dating trend, “soft ghosting”.
Soft ghosting refers to someone ‘liking’ your last message or latest comment on their post on platforms like Facebook and Instagram where it’s possible to react to an interaction, but not actually replying and continuing the conversation. So, although they’re not ignoring you, they’re also offering no genuine response.
Perhaps surviving an apocalypse would actually cut out soft ghosting and all the other rubbish we put up with when it comes to online dating?
So, maybe the idea isn’t as scary as it first sounds after all.
