The popular smartphone hookup app Tinder is widely used by millennials today – sometimes in the hunt for a company, a one night stand, or merely an ego boost. However, the dating app has not eluded the lives of India’s parliamentarians too. Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was caught using Tinder during his visit to England for the World Cup 2019.
Shashi Tharoor was caught using the Tinder dating app by a person in the audience while he was busy watching one of the World Cup 2019 matches in England’s Birmingham. Soon the news spread like wildfire and social media users were quick to react:
“I always suspected that men on Tinder are particularly shady. In fact, I recently read somewhere how Tinder dates could end up in a deadly outcome. Now I understand why!” said Preeti, a singleton from New Delhi.
“I think with this, online dating is now officially not just limited to ordinary day-to-day life losers. It has now expanded to losers who get to run our country. My vote goes to this Tharoor guy next time!” said Arjun, a frequent Tinder user.
“Swipe left if you dislike her. Swipe right if you like her. Super like if you really really really want to bang her. This is the kind of internet democracy I enjoy the most!” said Mohit, a Mumbai Playboy.
“So now its unusual for him to have a dating life just because he is a murder accused? How shallow have we become as a society?” said Swara Bhasker, a voyeurism enthusiastic.
Shashi Tharoor’s Tinder profile boasts of him being a ‘wordsmith’ who is a ‘killer vacationer’ along with bragging about his ‘lush hair’ and his ‘superior way with the ladies’! His favourite vacationing spot names Pakistan, Dubai, Kerala with a specific mention for the Leela Palace, New Delhi. In the array of pictures shared by him on his Tinder profile, a picture of him with Boney Kapoor was taken as a subtle passive-aggressive messaging by many. Other than that, Tharoor’s Tinder profile might actually be a chick-magnet.
Currently, it is not clear whether Shashi Tharoor’s Tinder matches get to survive for the next date, but given his history with women, not much can be commented on the same. In another news, Mehr Tarar was reported travelling to England.
