There are so many different ways to text and it all says something about you. Scenario three: It’s about seven in the evening outside some restaurant downtown. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health until thy wife un-match thee, I now pronounce you Tinder-wed.Missoula’s poor response to these rapes led to national scrutiny and a yearlong Department of Justice investigation.
The third scenario has been my experience with Tinder. One of the very first questions people ask and should ask is,” So why are you on Tinder?
