Tinder Killed the OkCupid (Star)

I'm off OkCupid for good. Tinder provides me with more amusement and better dates than OkCupid ever could. Goodbye, OkC; you are dead to me. 

"Tinder Killed The OkCupid Star"


(Adapted from The Buggles, Video Killed the Radio Star")


I signed up online back in 2010

Lyin' awake intent on logging into you

I was younger and the boys came through you


You took the credit for a number of dates 

Here on this blog with new technology

And now I understand the online date scene


I used you daily


What happened to you?

Tinder killed the OkCupid

Tinder killed the OkCupid

We get to swipe the pictures fast,

we can't rewind or think too much


Oh - aoh – oh - oh – oh

Oh – aoh – oh - oh - oh

And now I meet men so much quicker

I get to match with people I like, 

And you remember, the weirdos from OKC,


You were the first one


But you are dead now

Tinder killed the OkCupid

Tinder killed the OkCupid

We know if we have mutual friends, 

We aren't strangers, we live close

Not far!

Oh - aoh – oh - oh – oh

Oh – aoh – oh - oh - oh


Tinder killed the OkCupid

Tinder killed the OkCupid

Pictures of tigers make me laugh,

I'm not going back, I've gone too far

Pictures came and made me laugh,

Put all the blame on OKC

You are... the Tinder star [x2]

Tinder killed the OkCupid [x7]

Tinder killed that OkCupid, yes it did


Why Tinder is HOT and OkCupid is Really NOT

OMG. Tinder What are you? Where have you been? Why are you so spectacular?

Let me count the ways: 

  1. You show me men nearby on my phone
  2. Swipe to left if I don't like him
  3. Swipe to the right if I do 
  4. You tell me if we matched immediately
  5. I could write him now or later
  6. You tell me if we have Facebook friends or likes in common
  7. You tell me his real first name and age
  8. You won't tell me his height so I can't be prejudiced
  9. You let me judge based on just photos allowing me to be completely honest with myself since I do that on OkCupid anyway
  10. You are in touch with reality
  11. You are instantly gratifying
  12. You might just be about sex...
  13. But I don't care
  14. You've connected me to a really interesting man with an accent and we've been on 3 dates...*
  15. OkCupid has NEVER done that

*Stay tuned for posts on my dates with the mysterious man from Latin America. No sex to report.
