That's why it pulls from Instagram, the social media platform where sharing everything from food, to travel, to a cool button, to, yes, a selfie is fair game. Tinder users often call out their Instagram handles, so why not remove the extra step of opening yet another app to figure out if you like someone or not.It's a new approach to online dating that's refreshing, and frankly, challenges the one making the profile to really think about how they present their world to, well, the world. Everyone knows what kind of photos end up on Tinder — and what cringe-worthy conversations those photos end up sparking.
We were raised to never judge a book by its cover, but really, we do just that.
Say you're out at a social event being all social with other social animals, and someone catches your eye.
The honest answer to what drew you to them is twofold: their appearance and their vibe, the latter of which is based on their presentation, or rather, their cover.
Glimpse, a new location-based dating app, syncs with your Instagram feed to help you seduce potential partners with your exquisite filter selection, because who doesn’t want to date a Mayfair lover with a gift for artfully photographing last night’s dinner?
With Tinder or Grindr, all you get is a picture of some dude or lady’s face/butt/other things. ) gets 10 photos to show off their deal — their dog, their Thai food, their cute apartment, their duck face, whatever.
With Glimpse, though, you also get a peek at their inner soul. By scrolling through their Instagram highlights, you get a chance to see the world through your match’s eyes. Really, you’re seriously using one of your limited pics to showcase a moody picture of a brick wall?
And then judge their world accordingly, because obviously — this is a dating app. When it’s working right, every image is a potential conversation starter.
Dating sites and apps like Tinder (among a slew of others) have made it A-OK to judge a person based solely on appearance.
But now there's Glimpse, a new dating app that syncs not with Facebook, but with your Instagram feed.
