    How it All Started

    Via: The Verge
    Tinder is a bizarre - and sometimes unforgiving - wasteland of sexual misadventures. But, how do you deal with all of the ultra-aggressive alpha males out there? One programmer had an idea:

    Via Verge:
    ...Over the last few weeks, a California-based computer engineer — we’ll call him Patrick — has pitted heterosexual male against heterosexual male. Patrick’s program identifies two men who "like" one of his bait profiles (the first used prominent vlogger Boxxy's image; the second used an acquaintance who had given Patrick consent) and matched them to each other. The suitors’ messages — some aggressive, others mundane, but all of them unabashedly flirtatious — are then relayed, back and forth, to one another through the dummy profile. 
    ...
    The program made matches within minutes of activation; Patrick estimates he was overseeing 40 conversations within the first 12 hours. He developed code to scramble phone numbers and stepped in when a real-world meeting was imminent, but he also feels ambiguous about the ethics of the prank: "They ignore all the signs, they ignore all the weird things," he says of the users. "When someone is so quick to meet up without any detail or know anything about the person at all — maybe it’s deserved."


    Let's get on with the resulting conversations shall we:

    These guys just don't see how it could be another man...it HAS to be a language misunderstanding. The other one must be a woman, right?

    If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Unless you're using Grindr, then it's probably real.

    Something just doesn't add up.

    Finally, someone started to figure out something was wrong. It's nice to see one guy not completely lost in the "lust fog" of tinder.

    Mormons apparently don't have rules about getting frisky on tinder, apparently Joseph Smith didn't foresee the internet.
