Dating a guy with no friends
Tinder was the worst of them: All I saw were a couple of group shots (but which guy are you, Steve?
), ab selfies, and if I was really lucky, a suit shot.
Turns out the apps didn't create that restriction though: we did.
On Tinder particularly, "The purpose was never just for dating, it was for social discovery in general," Rosette Pambakian, vice president of communications for the app, told me.
Going in, I thought the experiment was limited: Because these were dating apps, I couldn't access the pool of straight girls, those least likely to see me as a romantic target.
I moved to New York less than two years ago and have been trying to expand my circle as I build roots in the city.
As a very extroverted person, I believe the more people around, the merrier (and richer) life is.
