Toying with Tinder: Is ‘Out There’ Really Where I’ll Find My Flame?


Since we live in a digital age of quick fixes, limitless options, and increased opportunities for connection, lots of people have turned to online dating sites to meet people and “find” love.

Many of my friends have had positive experiences with online dating, others have not. While I can see the benefits of online dating sites and apps like Tinder, I find myself resistant to going that route.

Maybe I’m too romantic for the digital age.

Honestly, I’d much rather stay at home with a cup of tea and a good book, blog in a quiet café, or go for dinner with a close girlfriend, than spend my time and energy into scrolling through guys online like I’m rummaging a sales rack for a new pair of jeans.”

For my thoughts on finding love in the digital age while living authentically, check out my article published on Rebelle Society.

  1. Hi Shannon! Interesting at least I do not need a new pair jeans! Tinder is foreign to me ! A good read. Dad

    Life is Good !🚴‍♀️



  2. Good to hear that Mr. Mullen is not familiar with Tinder! Hope all is well with the Mullen family – Merry Christmas to all – thanks Shannon for sharing your writing. T. D’Amico


    1. Thanks Mr. D’Amico! Thanks for reading and your comments. Yes, while my Dad is quite tech savvy I’m relieved that he doesn’t have the Tinder app, considering his ‘jeans’ fit so well lol. Merry Christmas to you too!
