Tinder is a pretty awesome app, as the internet has extensively told you time and time again in the last year, but sometimes a batshit crazy story comes out of nowhere and proves that we are truly living in a new age of hooking up.
An American scientist stationed in Antarctica had been using the app back in the US before being stationed at McMurdo Station on the ice continent. He was bored in his tent one night (read that as you may) and decided to open up the app. After no women showed up in his match queue (shocker), he expanded his search radius. Sure enough, up popped a woman. A woman who was camped just a short helicopter ride from McMurdo, who just so happened to be camping in Antarctica. File that under “camping trips I would never take unless you threatened my family.”
After a few weeks the match finally met, but the anonymous scientist has disclosed that the two have not yet consummated the right swipe.
What a world.
