Marriage can be quite fantastic. I mean, if you like the other person well enough, and everyone behaves decently, marriage isn't too far off from the pubescent fantasy of that best pal you also get to have sex with.
However, marriage is also incurably boring. For proof of this, look no further than its designation: "the institution of marriage." When's the last time an "institution" has been anything spectacularly interesting?
Things that are boring need spicing up. And for that, my wife and I have turned to Tinder.
You unwed masses may be surprised to find out that a great number of your married friends enjoy roaming the aisles of the great virtual meat market. And that while you're shopping for love, romance, or Jackson Pollock sex, we are on the prowl for a different kind of fix.
The incurable fun of swiping left... and right
Of all the apps on my phone, Tinder is the most consistently diverting. When you remove the romantic stakes and strip away any personal investment, the app is an anthropological smorgasbord. It's choose-your-own-adventure reality TV. And, like reality TV, it's so much more fun, weird, and tantalizing together.
