Tinder for Travelers 

For as long as its been around, I have been anti-tinder. I thought the app was creepy & superficial… which it is. 

When I started traveling, I decided to give it a second thought. No, I’m not on there looking to find my Tinderella, but, this app can actually be more beneficial than you think! And hey, what’s the harm of a free dinner?

Talk to Locals

Sometimes, Yelp can’t give you a clear picture of, let’s say, where to go on a Tuesday night. Tinder connects you with locals, who are usually more than happy to give suggestions… as long as your profile photo is hot enough.

Make New Friends

My network of friends is predominately male. Now, I know guys aren’t on Tinder to get friend zoned. However, sorry guys, that’s what’s going to happen to you if we’re a match and seem cool enough to hang out with. One of my favorite parts of traveling is meeting new people. Tinder expands  networks into the infinite inter web! 

Beware!!!!

Don’t be stupid!!!!!! If you’re going to meet someone, do it in a public place. Going to someone’s house is NOT a date, and having someone pick you up in their car isn’t a good idea either. If you’re traveling alone- lie. Say you’re staying with somebody that you know, that is waiting up for you. And, most importantly, always keep an eye on your drink! It is a crazy world, and you can never be too careful!
