If you gave up on Tinder, there is still hope.
Although every dream doesn't quite come true how we would intend them, this young couple who met on Tinder proved to us that some dreams do come true. Thomas Gallagher is your normal male Tinder user, who like any man on the app uses wit and charm to reel in the ladies. Much to his surprise, during a work trip while aimlessly swiping both left and right -- he stumbled upon a beauty and the rest was history. Thomas an avid user on Reddit, wrote on the site, "Honestly Tinder was more of a 'hot or not' validation/confidence booster, but I never was expecting or wanting to actually meet anyone on there. [Then,] I was killing time swiping while traveling for work in a city (Chicago) 700 miles from where I live. Just out of curiosity/boredom I messaged a girl about one of her travel photos". It's funny how what was meant to be a joke, actually became a reality [see the messages below].
Thomas and Grace comical [yet realistic] exchange about traveling the world together.
If you thought that was the end of the two lovebirds exchange, there is more. We spent over 1 month talking before we actually met in person. Like I mentioned, I was there for work and wasn't even able to meet her when we matched. I probably wouldn't have even if I was able." And now? "We have been flying to see each other each weekend for the past 6 months and landed in Beijing yesterday. We're booked for New Zealand in February.", says Thomas.
Thomas shared his story via videos [both seen above] with his new found love Grace to let people know the truth about Tinder. Yes, the app is full of creeps. No, you might not find love, but you also have to be willing to give things a try. Step outside of your comfort zone and don't compare one bad situation to the next.
Give Tinder one more try.
You might just find love and a roundtrip ticket to across the world for a lovely date.
