Professionals are DTF, too
Looking for love on Tinder is essentially like being a detective. You’re attempting to piece together a complete stranger based on a couple of (hopefully not shirtless) pix and a catchphrase-length bio (please god, no lyrics). This is no cakewalk.
Sure, Tinder reveals your potential match’s age and location, but it doesn’t give you the real detail a girl wants to know — is this dude a scrub or nah? With Tinder’s current set-up, you’re essentially deeming a guy worthy of sneaking into those DMs based on how douchey his selfies are. This lack of information can lead to a lot of “actors” and currently unemployed “entrepreneurs” asking for your A/S/L on a Saturday night. Chats with Tinder suitors usually follow the same script — what are you up to? where are you from? This is typical small talk before you get to the nitty gritty. Let’s be real, you trying to calculate that paaaaycheck.
Lucky for your gold-digging ass, there’s an app for that.
Piggybacking off of LinkedIn’s database of professionals, BeLinked is a hook-up for finding the financial advisor of your dreams. Instead of signing in using your Facebook like Tinder, you create a profile on BeLinked by signing into LinkedIn. The functionality is essentially the same as Tinder (swipe left for hell no, swipe right for sexy-time). The difference is, BeLinked discloses your industry, job title and education to potential matches.
Whether you use BeLinked for casual sex with CEOs or networking (borrrring), knowing more information about a person you’re considering meeting blindly is a good thing. At least it gives a bit more information to the police when they’re looking for your body.
