What made the challenge possible is the Tinder phenomenon. But most guys on Tinder are looking for relationships, or at the very least "something more than a one-night stand". I forget to reapply lipstick, it's at an (ironic) workingmen's club and when we first chatted on Tinder he opened with "on a scale of one to 10, how far away am I from that ass? My date has a strong Irish accent - arriving here a week ago - and this doesn't help the conversation flow. It's deceptively easy: download the app, log in through Facebook and your profile is already live.
A smartphone dating app, Tinder allows users to upload five photos, their first name, age and a brief profile. "I think I've finally got it down to a fine art and don't want to miss all the girls who would've swiped left for me (rejected their profile) the first time."Charming, intelligent and a former topless waiter ("it was empowering"), he says Tinder has changed dating. He's nabbed a job in China, leaving in three weeks. Kevin, on the North Shore, is using it to advertise for a flatmate (0 a week). After tonight he wants to "hang out" - my generation's synonym for date - until he leaves for China. It shows your first name, age, and is pre-populated with pictures from your Facebook account.
Last week, Jess Mc Allen chewed her way through 10 in five days.
The Smugly Coupled have always felt pity for the Desperately Seeking ("I'm so, so glad I'm not single in today's world") but today, well, I am so, so glad, etc.
Clicking "yes" to a potential match enables chatting by text message. Tinder's Rossette Pambakian says more than 11 per cent of us are Tindering, up from 5 per cent a year ago, and more than 22 million "matches" are made worldwide every day. He's an actor and dancer - we watch his hip-hop moves on his phone. Before the app, Kiwis would get drunk, have sex and eventually sidle into a relationship, now you have to do the "first date". At the end of the night, 2am, we go to a playground and swing, slide and have acrobatic fun under the stars. I've scheduled two dates with 30 minutes between them. He doesn't feel that great when he scores on Tinder, and still prefers the old-fashioned chase. "It was bound to happen: forgetting someone's name. Within minutes I was swiping away, left for "no", right for "yes".
I am answering my own question so that it would help anybody else who are trying to accomplish the same. The outsourced Tindering was a success - she's up to date three with a chap who seems rather smitten. Some good, where conversation flowed and hours flew by, the super-sweet guy who sent a "mixtape" after our first date, the one I still catch up with as friends to compare and commiserate our dating adventures.And of course, there was the bad - the guy who spent the entire date talking about his job in IT server maintenance, the one who wanted my opinion on whether his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend was better looking than him, and the lovely morning spent at the dog park with a guy who then never called.We didn't have a dating culture then - and we definitely don't have one now.When I did my "three cities, 15 dates" experiment for Sunday magazine, I'd hoped we might be on the cusp of a dating revolution. A chance for Kiwi singles to spend some time in that as seen on American-TV, in-between space; somewhere further on the relationship spectrum than a single night of bad drunk sex, but not as far as where-do-you-keep-your-house-key. Almost a decade ago, when I set up my assignment by asking friends of friends and colleagues for recommendations, it took me a month to date 15 men.
Goldson says it's not that different from traditional dating websites or initial meetings in a bar: "The real difference, as I see it, is the speed at which the meetings occur. When our date finishes he asks: "Would it be a bad idea if I could drive you home, we mess around and then I drop you back in time for the next guy? On Tinder you are judged firstly on your looks, second on how you present yourself, third on what you say.
