Once again, Tinder has suspended my account. I was about to write a fun post on my various Tinder interactions, but they’re all gone. So I can’t.
The “conversion rate” on Tinder is exceedingly low. You’ve read here about all but one of my Tinder dates (and I sort of hope to write about it at some point – I just haven’t gotten to it – there’s a draft that’s been sitting in my “drafts” pile for way too long). But at any given time, I have 50-60 matches, of whom I’m engaged conversationally with, say, 5-10. So I just lost 5-10 somewhat active conversations, one or more of which might, conceivably, some day, have led to meeting, I suppose.
It’s not a HUGE deal – my life is, thankfully, pretty damned good right now, dating-wise. But it always throws me. Not least because I just hate leaving conversations mid-stream with no explanation. I hate it when people do that to me on Tinder (and they do, all the time). I never do it.
And also, because Tinder is pretty much the perfect way for me to meet people.
If I left our conversation mid-stream, it’s because Tinder’s suspended me. Here’s hoping they let me back on soon. Meanwhile, I’m not too hard to find other ways.
