Tinder is dead, it’s all about getting Spotted
Bring on the summer
If you see a fit person in the library, what do you do? All those months of practice matching with random people on Tinder haven’t prepared you for actually having to deal with someone stunning being in the same room as you. You’re left with a few, imperfect options.
1. Walk over and try to chat them up
Everyone’s always telling you how funny you are so surely you can come up with a funny, charming opening line to make them go weak at the knees. If that’s the case, why is your mouth so dry? And why are your hands getting so sweaty? As your body begins to shut down, you realise there’s a good chance you’ll mess this up, say the wrong thing and be permanently rejected by this person forever. You might be better off if you…
2. Do nothing
You’re fine being alone, and besides why should you have to make the first move? Just be prepared for weeks of stomach-churning self-loathing as you try to find the other person on Facebook and wish it was you sharing a cocktail on some Mediterranean beach with them.
3. Desperately post on your uni’s Spotted page hoping to find your one true love
You do what everyone else does these days: send a message into the Spotted page on Facebook and hope someone tags the guy/girl of your dreams in the comments. At best, it’s a long shot, and you’ll have to make do with keeping your fingers crossed you run into them again.
Spotted solves the problems completely
Whatever you pick, the chances of that perfect piece of eye candy giving you their number are shockingly low. Thankfully, the new dating app Spotted solves that problem completely.
Spotted allows you to share your anonymous Love Notes more effectively, without running the risk of your message getting lost in the fast-paced Facebook news stream. The Love Note will be matched anonymously with the other person’s looks and automatically notifies every fitting person. So there’s a really high chance your message reaches the right person.
If that’s not enough, Spotted also shows you everyone who has crossed your path while you’ve walked around campus and lets you strike up a conversation with them. So, instead of all the randomers on Tinder (seriously, how are there that many weirdos within a few miles of me?), Spotted is full of faces you’ll recognise from lectures, the library and even nights out, allowing you to finally put a name to the face.
Plus it’s free, something that Tinder no longer is now they want you to pay once you run out of swipes.
Unlike other dating apps, the whole Spotted experience is designed with students in mind and there’s no better way to check out the talent on your campus. So, what are you waiting for? Click here to download for iTunes and Android.
