This Man Flew His Tinder Match to Beijing, and the Rest is Traveling History

September 19, 2015 2 min read

Tinder isn't exactly known for romance. Swipe left, swipe right, and say hello to your flavour of the week in mere minutes. It's like an addicting video game you just can't turn off. But every now and then, there's some sort of love story lurking in the distance that reminds you that some people are actually in search of a deeper connection than the stigma attached to Tinder seems to behold. Reddit user Lagger, aka Thomas Gallagher, was another typical Tinder enthusiast who didn't really assume he'd find anything beneath the surface from swiping left or right. But during a work trip to Chicago, things seemed to take a turn for the unexpected. "Honestly Tinder was more of a 'hot or not' validation / confidence booster," he says. "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." "Subsequently, I told her I would take her to China if she took me to New Zealand." Tinder And while the initial conversation seemed to serve as a casual opportunity to pass the time and interact with a complete stranger, the two continued to talk, virtually, and then, finally, in person. "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." So where does this story end? Well, it doesn't! "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." What do you think of Tinder?
