– It seems to me that social networks are now the lot of any person. We all share, show, tell, get acquainted, interest. Tinder is no exception, the ex-soloist of Hi-Fi reflects. “It’s like pictures from an exhibition for me, like a store on the couch — you just flip through it. As a rule, this is all just flirting, which very rarely comes to dates. Here is my experience. I have my own views on this way to meet. I generally think that this is more for entertainment, distraction. Some play computer games, Tetris, and someone sits on Tinder and flips through pictures.
“Eat the lobsters and start kissing”
The performer of the hit “Her glass is full of XO,” the young singer The Limba started a Tinder account a few years ago. At that time, he was already famous, so some girls doubted that his profile was real.

– All my friends told me what Tinder was, and then I thought: “Well, cool, I’ll try.” I registered, liked it, and then they wrote to me on another social network: “Is this you or not?”
In the end, the artist never went on a single date with Tinder, and soon deleted him altogether, because he met his future wife. Also on social media. The right to “match”: an alternative to Tinder will be launched in Russia “VKontakte” revealed the details of the future analogue of the popular dating app I responded to her stories, and she reciprocated. I offered to meet. We went to the DEPO, met there, ate lobsters and started kissing,” The Limba said.
“Did you think I’d be the boyfriend for dinner?”
Olympic synchronized swimming champion Daria Korobova admitted to Izvestia that she was also on Tinder. I signed up out of interest and almost went on a date with an entrepreneur, but at the last moment the man acted ungentlemanly.

— My friends told me some crazy stories about Tinder, and for the sake of interest I decided to test this application, and I think I was the last one to download it. I had a match (as they explained to me, there you need the choice of two people to match). We started to correspond. A week later he asked me out on a date. I say: “Great! I’m just free. Where shall we go? He replied: “Walk. Do you think I’m going to take you to a restaurant?” I said that you can not go to a restaurant, but just sit somewhere and get to know each other, to which he said: “I’m not going to feed you! Did you think I’d be the boyfriend for dinner?” Perhaps he had some kind of unpleasant background.

We laughed with our friends. This was probably my only experience on Tinder – unsuccessful, and I decided that I would rather meet naturally. I am a person who is able to pay for himself. He could say that, for example, he adheres to the European system of relations and the account in half.
“It’s convenient to pass the time in the subway”
Singer Alexander Ivanov, known under the pseudonym IVAN, did not last long on Tinder. He started a profile there about ten years ago, but, according to him, he quickly got bored.

– I was free and single. It is convenient to pass the time in the subway – you sit, look through the profiles and wind back and forth. Then I even met with someone as a result. There was a date that did not result in any relationship. We just met in a cafe, drank tea, talked and fled. It’s better to meet in person. It is more likely that you will immediately understand and recognize a person. Because of the departure of Tinder, I do not grieve for obvious reasons – I have a family, a beloved wife, – he told Izvestia.
“No one believed that it was me”
The daughter of Elena Biryukova, the star of the comedy series Sasha + Masha, Alexandra Klots told Izvestia that she was inspired to install the application by a documentary Netflix “Tinder Scam”.

— The guys and I decided to register a profile to see how everything works there, whether it is possible to go out with people for such dialogues. As a cinematographer, I was wondering how realistic this story is. Actually, we were faced with the fact that no one believed that it was me. They said: “The children of the stars do not sit here! What can you do here? When I posted a picture with my mother, they said either “Is this your mother ?!” or “You just took a picture with an actress, don’t lie.” And they were very surprised when I sent them a photo from the “show your index finger” series, that is, you had to make some kind of gesture to prove that it was me – in this way they checked me. It was funny. I sat on Tinder for a few days for fun, then went there maybe once every three months out of boredom, but I never saw anyone. Therefore, I will not miss this social network. Like payment is red: how speculators cash in on Tinder users Russian users of the service are offered to overpay three times for the opportunity to keep the usual functions of the application
Talked about space with a colleague Ilona Mask
Actress Alena Chekhova Tinder was not looking for a romantic relationship, but wanted to practice English with a native speaker. Therefore, I used the application when I was in America.
— I am a public person, and it seems to me that it would not be very correct to sit on Tinder in Russia. And in America, where no one knows me, I felt a kind of carte blanche and freedom and registered there. Not in order to find a young man, I wanted to speak more English, she told Izvestia. – I posted really cool pictures – from red carpets, festivals, but I didn’t have a verification badge, I didn’t check it on purpose. And it was funny that one guy, with whom we are very good friends, at first thought that I was a fake. His name is Sean. He then worked with Elon Musk, was one of the leading engineers. He is like a character in the series “The Big Bang Theory” – an abstruse person.

When we met, I asked him about space. He said: “You have such deep questions!” And I’m just curious, and I wanted to expand my vocabulary in this topic. Everyone has a different motivation. For me, Tinder is a place where I can find friends.
The service for online dating stopped working in Russia on June 30 and became unavailable for download. However, some users can still log into their accounts using a VPN.Share:
