Well, folks. We’ve reached a new low. As in how low your eye-gaze can still be to get you laid. As in, finally, you don’t even have to physically look around the room for your potential horizontal tango partner of the night. Thank Christ, because that scanning was exhausting!
That’s right, Mingleton is here. this new App is essentially the Tinder for exactly here and now. The app “leverages Core Bluetooth and Core Location technology in the iPhone itself to help its users find one another out the real world.” Listen, I don’t even know what core Bluetooth means but this sounds a little stalky. Also, is this REALLY the real world now? You walk into a bar with your shiny new shirt on in the mood to get both blacked and blown and you STILL have to be on your phone to enable that? Imagine a place full of people staring at their phones more than they already do. Please, kill me now.
This is especially ironic because as I came across this article, I was reading another from the perspective of a woman who deleted Tinder because of a Ted Talk on choice and human nature. The gist of that is a different story, but the woman writing it made the point that many of us have hundreds of matches but rarely actually go on a Tinder date. This is all too true. Cue the knight in shining armor in the form of Mingleton. You don’t have to schedule, or really, even go on the date. It’s like the go directly to jail – if jail was bed – card. Talk about instant gratification.
