Home Means…Finding Love in a Hopeless Place

Dear Tinder, I abhor you.

Many other people do as well…In fact, a study found over 70 percent of the people on the dating app have never even bothered to go on a date with a match.

Insert a sarcastic “haha”.

So why do thousands and thousands of people use this “dating” app.

The large majority of us aren’t on the app to find love or a quick hookup. In fact, only about 4 percent of those surveyed said they used Tinder to look for a relationship.

Instead, most of us (about 44 percent) like to go on Tinder for a good, old-fashioned confidence boost.


Anyways…Ky here! After many crash-and-burn attempts on the app, I have decided to try a different approach…An approach so cunning, so strategic, “victory” is imminent.

Alex is going to write my Tinder bio.

This strategy was recommended by a co-worker….have a good female friend who knows you well write your bio for you. Apparently women actually read those things.


One, I hate writing the damn bio (go figure, I’m a writer, but the agony of having to “impress” someone in a few sentences is just too much pressure) and two, Alex met her boyfriend on a dating app (Bumble) so she obviously knows what to look for.

Here’s what she came up with…

And before I reveal her kind and thoughtful submission, I gotta admit, Alex is a sharp cookie full of sass and sugar so what she came up with was a little boring to me.

Nevadan, Journalist, Explorer, Dog Lover

That’s it? Five words and the last one a cliche as old as time…

Alex, I love you, but really?! Where is the elaborate and creative collection of all my wonderful attributes to society?! (LOL)

Well…if you watched the video, her boyfriend impressed her with a single detail.

His height.

So my confusion into the mind of a female deepens.

I have (somewhat reluctantly) posted Alex’s recommendation plus the photos she hand selected.

As I wrap up this post to the Home Means blog, the only thought that comes to my mind is…I should get off Tinder.
