When "The Married Tinder" was recognized by another Tinder user who sent him the blog post about him, he emailed Tinderella and thanked her "for being discreet" with her writing.Other dates like the "The Republican" and "The British Tinder" have become committed readers, she said.She started the blog in January after the drawn-out breakup of a messy three-year relationship."I was holding myself accountable for getting out there and moving on from my ex," she said.The site gets almost 2,000 visitors a day, despite the fact that she only writes about two posts a month.Then there was "The Boston Tinder," that enigma who facilitated the perfect three-week romance, including requesting that she stop seeing other people, before sending a text saying: "we're too different for either of us to be happy…"And then there was "The Married Tinder," the guy who used a fake Facebook account and second phone to evade his wife while he wooed her.
She only writes about a date once the relationship is over, which is why "The Boston Tinder" was written weeks after it ended and even then it was difficult to publish, according to Tinderella."I just wanted to get it down and also to write about it was my closure — ' OK this is definitely over,'" she said.
Writing the blog has illuminated some interesting truths about the nature of dating in New York City, Tinderella said, especially when compared with dating in her native London."I know that I have never dated this much in my life. I have always heard New York is the dating city, but who is to say whether this has been Tinder or living in a city like New York," she said."In London, if you were dating someone they would consume all your attention.
Here you should just assume that they are dating five other people.
Still, for many New Yorkers, life eventually reaches a point where the time comes for a more serious relationship.
And the dating app Hinge, which has gone through some changes of its own, wants to help.
