A few of mine include nighttime walks in the rain along the Seine, being kissed on a bridge with the Eiffel Tower behind us, riding around the city on the back of a scooter, and strolling hand in hand on the love lock bridge.It was all insanely romantic, but I never would have discovered that had I written them off as being disinterested. No, wait, all his photos are selfies and he has this one on here twice. My friends and I have met many French men through Tinder, and thus have learned a few things about the dating culture as a result: If a Frenchman wants you, you’ll know it.
You choose attractive photos of yourself, write a short biography, and then begin swiping: right on people you want to match with, left on those you don’t.
For those who are unfamiliar, Tinder is a mobile app for dating.
For the French, kissing can signify the beginning of a relationship.
If you’re going out with someone and kissing them, it means you’re in an exclusive, monogamous relationship.
If you’re on Tinder, you’re probably familiar with this thought process; this is generally my experience every time I open it.
I’m swiping right just to see if he swiped right on me too.
The French-based app is growing fast, and the startup says it’s on track to reach 30 million users by the end of the year.
Happn is also introducing a new voice feature, where users can send audio recordings to potential mates.
I always take care to clarify it with them now, though, after briefly dating a guy who was relationship-minded, about which I wasn’t fully aware until drunkenly asking him outside of a bar at 4 in the morning after we’d been together for a couple of weeks.
