Tinder attacks “problem” — finding you a date for weddings

It used to be an okay thing to show up solo to weddings. (And frankly, I’ve had someone of the best times of my life being single at nuptials.) But somewhere along the way this became a source of shame and embarrassment, apparently?

Enter Tinder.

They are introducing a new feature called Plus One — which allows you to find and/or put yourself available to be someone’s date to the ceremony/reception. Among other things that Gizmodo lists as pitfalls for this idea, the one I agree with most is — why the hell would you want to bring a perfect stranger to an event like that?

Do you think this is a good idea? Is your answer — “I do?”
