I realized that many people do use the app as a means of connecting with new people (with success!
), and I didn't want to make light of that by telling her: "I was looking for somebody that was cute, but then had something else to say rather than seems like she just wanted to get right in bed," she'd tell me.
I’m 26, single, and four years removed from anything resembling a serious relationship.
So I did what any solo twenty-something guy would do: I installed Tinder on my mom’s phone and asked her to find me a date. It's a warm late-summer night in New York's West Village, and I'm on my way to rendezvous with a woman I met on the Internet.
I think you should get to know people."I'm 26 and single. When she was 26, my mom was married to her high school sweetheart, the man who took her to the prom in a goofy Volkswagen Beetle. That baby was my brother, who at 26 had already been with the woman he would marry for six years. She would call me as I was racing back, only to say, “You shouldn’t be talking on the phone while driving! Like most parents, she was on the receiving end of much teenage vitriol and almost none of the deserved gratitude.
