Welcome to The Coveteur’s series about sex and dating, brought to you with the expertise and humor of our friend Lindsay, of the laughably addictive Tumblr, Tinder in Brooklyn.In her own very DGAF way, she’ll be breaking down the good, the bad and the downright bizarre that is, well, dating in the time of Tinder (and all that other shit we Gen X, Y and Z-ers have to deal with). At the time, Mystery was considered by many to be the world’s greatest pickup artist—because apparently, dudes keep track of these things.You may remember this time, because, well, this book made people go bat-shit insane.It was a New York Times bestseller, as was an exposé written by Neil Strauss)."At that time Tinder was in its early stages, a long time before it became mainstream.There was a thread on the Misc called the 'Official Tinder thread you phucks' where the guys who used Tinder would share their stories with each other."After a slow start to Tinder, I decided to immerse myself into the task of getting better at meeting girls and building relationships, particularly over dating apps and online dating," Marcus told Buzz Feed."Over time things improved, and by the time I built the website I was going on up to six dates a week."
