Earlier this year the pioneer of virtual efforts to find love released their new feature, Missed Connections, and I’m pretty sure it’s an issue.
A commercial about missed connections aired this week when I was watching television and I was shook.
Match is introducing Missed Connections, a new location-based feature on the Match app that allows users to see other members they have crossed paths with in real life. Whether that’s people who go to your park, your coffee shop or your parking garage. The feature builds off our robust, sophisticated matching algorithms that help singles connect in a meaningful way.
Who in their right mind isn’t going to sound the alarm when someone says, “Hey I saw you 6 times today; we should grab a drink.” This is a feature for creeper city and I’m questioning how much the actors in the video had to get paid to act excited about this.
Also. Parking garage??? Who spends more than 1 minute in a parking garage on any given day. Has anything good EVER happened in a parking garage? No. Parking garages were built for fender benders, spending money, and praying to god that’s not a person in the distance. Parking garages weren’t built for love, but not according to Match!
Not that the internet ever shields you from giving you’re exact whereabouts (lookin’ at you, Snapchat), but this is promoting it to the wrong crowd: horny strangers. Literally breaking all the rules we learned in D.A.R.E about stranger danger and soaking it up for the chance of finding 21st century love. What a world we live in.
I give it 2 months before Tinder introduces it into the college hookup culture and I’m sure that will go well with absolutely no issues.
