If you use hugely popular data app Tinder, you should know that it’s assigned you a secret “desirability” score that ranks you based on several different factors. Fast Company’s Austin Carr recently got a look at his own desirability score and was dismayed to learn that he’s merely on the “upper end of average.” He also regrets ever looking at the score in the first place and doesn’t recommend that anyone try to discover how desirable Tinder thinks they really are.

What is 2015’s best Halloween costume? For me that’s easy: It’s one very clever guy who dressed as a giant Tinder profile. He created this costume by stacking several profile photos on top of one another that can be dismissed by swiping them left. The final profile is a picture of the costume wearer himself, at which point a sign that reads “It’s a Match!” pops up from the top. Here, let’s take a look at how it works in action. More →
Most Game of Thrones fans are anxiously waiting to see whether a certain character will return for more adventures with The Watch in the upcoming season, but there’s not that much Game of Thrones action going on right now. The sixth season of the show is months away, so until then we’ll just need to get our Game of Thrones fix by looking at fan-made creations like the following hilarious Tinder profiles that some of your favorite characters from the series would make if they had access to online dating.
One of the more widely voiced complaints regarding online dating is that you never know who you’re truly talking to on the other end.

In a number of ways, the dating game today is easier than it’s ever been. Thanks to mobile apps like Tinder, Hinge, Grindr, and OK Cupid — just to name a few — the ability to connect with potential romantic partners has never been more convenient. At the same time, there may be a downside to all of this meeting and greeting.
According to a new health report from the Rhode Island Department of Health, the state saw a tremendous increase in the overall number of new STD cases, a phenomenon that may very well be attributable to the increasing popularity of dating apps.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag – almost one in three Tinder users aren’t really single – you might be interested or forced to delete some of your online dating profiles. Or all of them. If that’s the case, then you could really use some help, especially since deleting a mobile app for one of these services isn’t sufficient to get the job done. More →
There are thousands, if not tens of thousands of women across the country who would undoubtedly love to date Conan O’Brien. There are significantly fewer women interested in dating “Chip Whitley,” however. That’s the name Conan chose on Thursday when he and actor Dave Franco decided to join Tinder in an effort to find love. Franco chose a much less conspicuous pseudonym: “Jangus Roundstone.” More →
