Back At It // Tinder Thoughts
Being back in Utah has many benefits. I love living near so many friends, again. I've already seen Lauren almost every day (so good). Plus, the scenery doesn't get too much better than these Utah mountains and sunsets. I love spending my evenings on my balcony, working on my blog and watching the sun go down. There's also the dating pool, which is much larger here than it was in my previous location...
I decided to jump back on the Tinder-wagon and I'm already wondering how wise of a decision it was. It's a very disconcerting app. To know that someone could swipe forever, knowing that there's always the possibility for "someone better", never being satisfied with one person, judging someone based on a few facts and some tacky bathroom selfies. Personally, I have a big problem with it because I know that reality is never the same as what you build up in your mind and see on a screen. Whether it's better or worse is subjective, but it's never the same. Tinder meetings are typically met with disappointment when the reality doesn't live up to the fantasy- usually felt from both parties.
But then you can't argue the sheer convenience of the app. To have so many "new friends" right at your fingertips. While I am not the apps biggest fan, I know that there are many success stories for friendship. And since I am "new" in town, that's what I need. I'm not very good at making friends in large, social situations. So for me, Tinder has possibilities to help me ease into a new group of friends (who aren't married. I have lots of friends who are). However, from past experience, I have only made one lasting friend from the app... So when weighed against all of my "matches", Tinder isn't doing so hot.
Have you or has someone you know tried Tinder? I obviously am not someone who uses the app to "hook-up", so I can't speak for those who do (it sounds terrible to me).

As for this outfit, it is what I have been wearing all summer. This shirt by Cloth & Stone is my favorite! If you've never tried one of their chambray shirts, then you must. They make the very best Chambray shirts.
