If you’ve been single at any point in the last eight years, then you very likely took your chances at finding love on the dating app Tinder. We’re not saying you were successful, but at least you tried! In the early days of the app, it was called Matchbox, which the founders picked because it evoked images of flames igniting and sparks flying. But it wasn’t quite right, and after perusing a Thesaurus for a while, they settled on Tinder. It’s also a play on words – tinder is what you use to light a fire, and it sounds a lot like tender (which ironically enough is just about the complete opposite of the types of people you find on it!).
