We have all been through the excitement of installing Tinder and swiping right for our first matches. And we all have some interesting stories of Tinder dates and the people we’ve met on those dates. Recently, Tinder came up with a new campaign around such stories of users, called #SwipeStories. As part of the campaign, Tinder has been regularly sharing stories of different users and their interesting experiences.
While all the #SwipeStories have been fun to read, one story really caught our attention. It features our favourite stand-up comedian, Kenny Sebastian. Yes, you heard it right ladies. Kenny Sebastian is on Tinder! We have all swooned over his extremely witty humour and charismatic personality, haven’t we? Not only this, through the story Kenny also reveals what makes him swipe right and what his idea of a great first date is. You can read the full story below:
#SwipeStories “As a comedian who travels a lot, it gets tough to meet people. I also just got out of a very long relationship, so getting back into the single life always seems like jumping into an ocean of flesh eating sharks (and the fact that the ocean is cold). With my travelling lifestyle, many women get super frustrated by how fast or unpredictable my plans are. Tinder was perfect, I met a lot of women who were in a similar state as me so we hit it off instantly. What was a huge learning experience for me was how the attitude towards dating in India has changed. Gone are the days of only one shot at a perfect relationship for life. People want to meet new people and experience new things to make sure they learn from it and figure out what exactly they are looking for. I also appreciate the courage it takes for men and women to put themselves out there and ‘touch wood’ I have only had great experiences with people who have been open and warm. Once before a Tinder date, I wasn’t sure if my match would like the place I had picked. It was a park and I had hoped we could grab lunch and then go for walk in the park. The lunch went really well but then I surprised her by renting bicycles and riding around. To my surprise, she seemed super competitive and we ended up racing around the streets. We then headed to get some drinks and before we knew it, we started dancing too! It was amazing how organically the lunch date turned into a whole day of hanging out and playfully competing with each other. One of the main things that make me swipe right is a profile that tells a story. Pictures where she isn’t trying too hard to look unbelievably perfect and ideally a photo where she looks silly. I love energetic and fun girls, especially those who love dogs, dancing and theatre. Overall, I am genuinely excited about my future Tinder adventures. From travelling to different countries, meeting women of different ages and being let into their life stories is something totally worth going out of your comfort zone for.” Hit the link in the bio to share your #SwipeStories as well!
