Tinder rolled out a new feature exclusively for college students. Because, you know, college kids don’t bang enough strangers.
Alright, so I missed out on the whole Tinder revolution. Am I salty about it? Kinda. Tinder seems pretty sweet. It’s where you get to be as shallow and judgmental as you want, and no one gets upset about it. And then, if all goes according to plan, you match with someone who thinks you’re hot too, and you bang them.
I never got to indulge in Tinder’s sexcapades because it rolled out shortly after I started dating my now wife. I love you more than anything babe!
As if Tinder wasn’t already perfect, they have now added a new update called Tinder U. To me, this seems pointless.
The idea behind Tinder U is that students can log in with their university’s .edu email address, and narrow down their search to students strictly at their school, or they can even select schools near them.
This sounds cool and all, but isn’t that what Tinder already does? You can set your mileage radius and age range. AKA, you can narrow it down to students on your campus and/or surrounding campuses.
I don’t get it.
This is fucking stupid. They are trying to recreate the wheel here. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Back in my day, we had to walk up hill, both ways, in the snow, just to get some strange. These kids today don’t know how good they have it.
I guess there is one positive to this. Most college campuses are located in places where you wouldn’t want to match with the locals from that area. So Tinder U allows you to filter out the Bloomsburg Townies, Scrantonites, and Kutztown locals so you don’t have to talk to any of those toothless freaks.
Happy Tindering you ungrateful millenials!
