This past decade has been witness to the growing trend of online dating with apps like Tinder, Grindr, Bumble or Hinge finding potential users in almost every smartphone holder, all over the world. Adding to that, this last year of the pandemic has also seen the growing concept of online dating or virtual dates. So at a time when almost all of the initial wooing and courting of the beloved transpires through texts and virtual contact, social media has seen rising , shifting and falling trends of modern day courtship culture. A very interesting idea for laughs, entertainment and at times even educational (for the ever awkward shy lover ) has been the pickup-line meme pages flooding social media. They showcase online dating mavericks and courtship gimmicks from the very best to the very worst. And to one’s surprise, it isn’t always deft meme makers behind the blinding creative light, it is actually flesh and blood individuals employing their imagination for some romantic and companionable gains. Have a look:
Tinder has actually opened a meme page on Instagram unable to cope up with the monstrous doses of hilarity its users experience everyday in private. The page called Tindernightmares, stands quite true to its name. In today’s era of digital socialism, why not share the funny gags of our private dating lives with the rest of the world to have some relatable moments. Looks like our dating app chatboxes are the new Freud’s couch of this generation to take out all their hidden maladies and madness. We have nothing much to say apart from the fact that ours is a mad, mad generation! Brace yourselves for some Alice in Wonderland moments in the dating world. The page admins have done a wonderful job at captioning but we could not resist offering our take on most. Enjoy!
It actually is!
National Geographic should surely bestow a free subscription to this unique pair, we say!
If only there would be a genre of zoological fiction, a lot of our kids at school would suddenly find themselves quite ambitious about a career in writing.
Wow, that’s some rare fetishization going on there!
Sigh! But honesty isn’t a much appreciated thing in the dating world. It is what it is, what can we say?
