The Eight Guys You’ll Meet On Tinder While At SXSW

SXSW 2014 - TinderOne of the best things about attending music festivals is being able to meet new “friends”. Not long ago, temporary friendships started by asking a stranger for directions or paying a compliment to their t-shirt of some obscure band. But now, thanks to the social hook-up app Tinder, connecting with attractive outsiders is easier than picking a filter for a new Instagram photo (seriously). South By Southwest became the first unofficial festival to showcase a new level of swiping and with no shortage of unfamiliar faces, we put ourselves at the mercy of Tinder – all for the sake of research, of course. The results were more catastrophic than conclusive as that infamous “southern charm” was pretty non-existent and to prove we’re not kidding, here are eight examples. They’re not great, so prepare yourself.


Tinder - Jesus BrosRELIGIOUS BROS THAT QUOTE THE BIBLE IN THEIR BIO
It’s not that I’m not down with religion, I just don’t think Jesus is down with Tinder.

Americans just don’t get Canadian culture, or realize that “Canadian” isn’t a language.


Tinder - DogsGUYS WHO JUST WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE PETS IN YOUR PHOTOS
That isn’t even my dog and no I’m not using Tinder to talk about cats/armadillos/rabbits/grackles.


Tinder - ThirstyBROS THAT AREN’T AFRAID TO BE OBSESSIVE/THIRSTY
This one’s obviously my fault but sometimes you do get too busy (or drunk) to finish a conversation.


Tinder - British BrosBRITISH GUYS WHO STILL AREN’T FAMILIAR WITH NON-BRITISH GIRLS
One particular Tinder user called me a “bloke” as a compliment. Sorry Harry.
