So I read one of those “6 things to make you feel better after a break up” things a bit ago, and one of the 6 things was to download tinder, upload a cute photo, swipe right, and let the compliments roll in. Well, if you’re a girl I’m sure it works better. So I did.
Swipe swipe swipe. But apparently I can’t stand being as superficial as possible, so I started clicking on every photo to read their about me and see whatever facebook likes we might have in common. And lo and behold, there was a dude who likes Tera Melos. We message “OMG TERA MELOS UR COOL!” and further chat about other music and figure we’ll say hi at a show at some point.
I just found a dude who likes Fear Before! These are all Seattle kids though ‘cause apparently there’s like no one in Olympia… except a dude who likes Orbs, ORBS!, who goes to my school, so I’m pretty stoked.
Going to set my settings to view both men and women and keep looking for cool music folk.
Tinder: Best way for an introvert to find nearby people who enjoy some similar music. (Yes, it’s easier than meeting people at shows. That shit is hard.)
