Not to be all “Bah! Humbug!” about it, but is there anything more dispiriting than swiping on a dating appWhat about during holidays?
We’re mid-cuffing seasonThis is because everyone who had been diligently searching for love has most likely already met up and taken Hinge. Now, it’s like a (freezing, wintery) jungle out there: You basically get to choose from random people looking to secure a New Year’s Eve hookup or people you went to high school with who are also home for the holidays. Or who have never been away.
25 tweets capture the awfulness and joy of holiday-season swipes.
Merry Christmas to all of the men on dating apps switching their opener from “How was your weekend?” to “Merry Christmas! How was your weekend?” Your subtle holiday remix is a lesson in creativity.

We are heading back home for the holidays can’t wait to re-download a dating app due to ~cuffing season feels~ and then immediately delete it when i see the first elementary school acquaintance pictured w/ one of the trifecta: a weapon, fedora, or baby

A dating app that allows you to see the family Christmas photos of your loved ones and then swipe away from them alone.

Holiday tinder is so fun because im not looking for new people, I’m looking for people I didn’t sleep with in highschool, that I’m trying to sleep with now

Holidays are complete when you’re in your childhood bedroom, sleeping with your bullies from high school and matching up on tinder.

A guy on Tinder just asked what I’ve been up to today and I said I did some Christmas shopping and he replied “I’m not one for subscribing to the capitalist nightmare” and oh my god is that what I sound like?

It’s the nightmare that comes before Christmas: tinder-swiping in your hometown

Nothing shouts “I’m single for the holidays” like like my mom telling me she would help me swipe on tinder.

There always ends up being dating app drama around the holidays but at least it won’t top last year when I found out my boyfriend was still on Bumble on Christmas Eve.

When I’m home for the holidays, I change my Tinder profile to show both men and women to play a really fun hometown game of “Where Are They Now”

This time of the year I am reminded sometimes of the guy I met via tinder. He critiqued my Christmas decorations and tried to seduce me with his home-written erotica.

On tinder, I chatted with a man who said that he was returning to his family for Christmas. So I asked where’s home, but it autocorrected to “where’s hole at?”

I may have every dating app downloaded on my phone, but at least I didn’t text any of my exes merry christmas

When i visit my hometown over the holidays, my favourite thing is to get on tinder to see who is gay.
— winterrie wonderland ❄️✨ (@gerrieyaki) December 24, 2018
Everyone, it’s my favorite evening of the year. This is the time of year when I limit my tinder radius to less than one mile, and then see which coworkers are having affairs. It is time to host the holiday party at work.

Why have reunions of high school seniors when you could just use tinder on holiday?

Is saying “merry Christmas” to ppl on the jewish dating app a hate crime
— ali segel (@OnlineAlison) December 25, 2020
It’s home time for holidays. Time to maintain a pen pal relationship with 10-15 guys via dating app, drunk call a few from my childhood bedroom to complain about my family, eventually go on a date with a few of them once I’m back and then realize that we actually hate each other

There is nothing like receiving a holiday message from someone you love on a dating app. It can really challenge your life choices.

Tell tinder that I need to set a minimum distance so people who are not from my home can be excluded.
