There are moments in life that you’ll always remember where you were when you heard the news. Well, today is one of those days as Tinder has decided to introduce verified celebrity profiles and you can finally have a chance at your celebrity crush. Wait, just kidding, this changes absolutely nothing because no celebrities were ever going to swipe right on us peasants to begin with. In today’s announcement on their blog, they stated:
Starting today, you may see a verified symbol on some profiles. Now when notable public figures, celebrities and athletes appear in your recommendations, you’ll know it’s for real.
Oh awesome, so now whenever I see high profile celebrities on Tinder, I’ll know it’s actually them denying me and not some dummy account. Even the notion that I’ll come across an A-List celebrity is a little ridiculous. The closest I’ve gotten was seeing Lo Bosworth on Hinge once. But just in case you do come across that diamond in the rough, Tinder gave us a preview of what to look for when lying in bed trying to find love…
You see that blue checkmark next to allegedly famous 22-year-old Amanda? Yeah, that’s the universal symbol for “I’m probably swiping left because you’re a commoner and I’m bougie as hell.”
If anyone’s looking for me, I’ll be the guy hopelessly pacing around outside the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show waiting for Candice Swanepoel or Taylor Swift to scope my profile in between the catwalk and drinking champagne with Bieber and Adam Levine. I’m just crossing my fingers that I fall within their age filters considering I’m at least two years older than both of them. Goddammit. .
