Tigers of Tinder

There are a lot of guys with pictures of Tigers (and miscellaneous wild animals) on Tinder. I find them extremely entertaining so now I share them with the world with an attempt at witty commentary!

TIGERS ON TINDER FOR EVERYONE!

I tiger-ized an old photo of myself (left) & my bestie above. Everyone do it! It’s phenomtastic. 

KTHXBYE!

Happy Saturday everyone! Perhaps you’ve heard about the new law being passed in NY to (gasp!) prohibit people from posing with tigers?

It’s probably best for the animals, let’s be honest. And as our friend Justin from Winnipeg (thanks to my lovely cousin Candace!) demonstrates, there are ways to get a picture with a tiger without actually cuddling them.

Next post I’ll try to introduce you to Ti - the friend I made in Australia and brought back with me to Canada to help keep the Tigers of Tinder trend roaring!

So if there’s one thing I’ve learned while travelling through Australia, it’s that almost EVERY Aussie on tinder has a photo with an animal. Not always tigers, but tons of fish, roos, koalas, sharks, etc.

After 10 minutes on tinder, this is the collection I came up with!

OH MY!! I’ve been in Australia (Brisbane) for exactly 12 hours… And I checked tinder for exactly 12 guys before I found Glen, chilling with a tiger. ITS A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON!

Over & out(back)… Until the next tiger is found.

Hi ho there. (I have literally run out of greetings for this blog)

I’m going to start a new type of post - people who SHOULD or MIGHT AS WELL have pictures with tigers.

Scanning tinder for the holy grail (a tiger of tinder of course), I often come across what I like to call “tiger teases”. These are the guys that have pictures in tropical environments, zoos or sanctuaries… And you just know that when you scroll through the photos you’ll eventually come across a tiger. But SOMETIMES these jerks fake you out & you end up tiger-less (basically the equivalent of cold, sad & alone).

SO I’m going to start featuring these tiger teases!!

Tom, above, doesn’t strike me as the tiger photo op type - BUT since his second photo clearly states that Tom loves to travel, I’m going to lump Tom into the “SHOULD” have a tiger photo category. Because frankly, if you LOVE to travel, Tom - THEN PROVE IT WITH THE INFALLIBLE TIGER PHOTO OP!!!

Kthxbye.

Ps I swiped left, Tom. I did.

Happy Thursday Tigers of Tinder fans!

We’re sharing from our friends over at tindermen again this week, because this guy’s name is "Boney" and that’s just far too ridiculous to pass up. And, in all honesty, I have been having a hard time finding my own Tigers of Tinder lately (both through lack of trying & lack of tigers). Enjoy Boney, and we’ll be back with some more original internet fodder soon!

Oh, and please encourage your friends to post their tiger pics to Tinder so we can mock them ;-)

Pi and Richard Parker: the golden years.

So it seems some kind folks have found their way to the blog via a little publication called the Wall Street Journal! I just wanted to take a moment to say welcome to the wonderful world of Tigers of Tinder!

Let us know if you have any Tigers of Tinder of your own to share - we’d love to check them out! You can submit them here: TigersofTinderSubmit@gmail.com

So in honour of our Wall Street Journal debut, I bring you Thomas. There is nothing uniquely distinct about Thomas & his tiger photo… but isn’t that the beauty of it all? People are trying to stand out all over these dating sites by posing with tigers and other ‘wild’ animals. As per the WSJ article… distinguishing themselves from “boring guys who stay at home and play videogames.” (Andy Mai, 28, of Oakland, Calif.)

But here we all are… posing with tigers… becoming completely indistinct yet again. And I think posing with tigers is significantly more expensive, and likely even less fun, than video games. Who doesn’t love a good Super Nintendo game!?

Oh hello there! It has been quite a while since I have shared any Tigers of Tinder for your viewing pleasure… life has been a bit insane.

I would to publicly state that my amazing softball team, the Sons of Pitches, won our FIRST EVER SOFTBALL game with a two out, 11 run rally in the last inning. So basically, we peaked in our first game of the season (yes, since this was our first win it does mean we won zero games last year). But the other team was great & happy for us & joined us for drinks afterward. Good times!! It makes our motto “Got 99 problems but a pitch ain’t one.” seem almost legit.

So now I bring you the lovely gent Clay, who looks like he’s enjoy a good spooning session with that sleepy, sleepy tiger. Clay comes to us from Vancouver, and our traveling contributor Hillary. Thanks for always keeping an eye (of the tiger) out for us, Hillary!

I’m heading off on an international adventure myself to Aussie land soon, so you can most definitely expect me to be on the lookout for Aussie Tigers of Tinder while I’m there (I’m guessing that I may find a few on my TigerAir flight!!!).

No tinder photo right now but I’m at a Chapters going out of business sale (I heart books!) and just wondering if we can take a vote on whether or not I should pick up a copy of “Tigers Forever” by National geographic?

Ok vote!

;-)

More tigers of tinder soon, I promise. Heading to Australia to track down some Aussie tiger lovers!

Oh hey everyone. Happy Monday (for real - it seems to be a good start to the week this time! I’m only 95% dedicated to my weekend countdown this week).

So this post is a bit overdue. But I have a confession… neither tigers nor tinder have been at the top of my priority list lately. I have a bunch of projects in the works - in talks to possibly (fingers crossed) plan an awesome event in Toronto, working on music for an independent film, planning my Australian trip in June… so needless to say, some things more exciting than tinder have been happening. Plus I have a full time job which is really starting to interfere with my social life. ;-)

ANYWAY! To make it up to you, I bring you not one, not two, but THREE lovely tigers of Tinder today.

Our first friend, Spencer, seems to enjoy close-up photography of Tigers.


Donny looks like he’s having a bit of a heart-to-heart with the Tiger… which makes sense because it also looks like he’s drinking a beer, which if you ask me, is just asking for trouble. We all saw the Hangover, right? We know what happens when alcohol & tigers are involved. It ends badly for everyone - including Mike Tyson.

And lastly, another lovely lady - Arley - who has no qualms about using that poor tiger cub as a headrest. THAT TIGER IS A BREATHING, LIVING BEING, ARLEY! Not your PILLOWPET!

 

Our Tuesday Tiger of Tinder (T³) comes to us from another blog - “Tindermen”. Thanks for this!

tindermen:

Jason likes his bitches chained up and ready to go.

Happy Friday ladies & gentlemen! I hope you’re all off enjoying your weekend by now.

Speaking of gentlemen… how fabulous are the gents above!? They were shared with us by our new friend Carlie in Guelph, who hit the Tinder jackpot when she found the man who has this as his photo! Carlie, let me know when the wedding is & how many tigers will be present - I’d like to do the toast to the bride, groom & tigers.

Oh, and I’d also like to be set up with one of these guys (who are obviously Mike’s brothers).

 

Good afternoon friends! It’s a gorgeous day in Toronto and I didn’t even need to wear a coat to work! Summer is on it’s way!

And as a cherry on top of the icing that is today, I found myself a Tiger of Tinder! It’s no secret that friends (and strangers) send me their tigers of tinder - but I’ve had a personal dry spell as of late, so it’s extra exciting to have found this gem.

And what a gem it is! Our friend John seems extremely trusting of whatever sedation they use on these poor lovely tigers. I guess he just really wanted some tiger tail.

Hey guys! Happy Monday! (And by happy Monday I mean is it Friday yet?)

I’m posting this lovely gentleman here for your Monday pleasure because he is actually apologizing to me for not having a picture with a tiger.

I’ve been struggling to find tigers lately… it’s like all the guys on Tinder know that I’m trolling for tigers and removed them, or blocked me or something.

So I wanted to give Christian a shout out, and let him know that I appreciate the apology, and also tell him that he SHOULD be sorry. Because frankly I’m tired of wasting my time on these no-tiger tinder scrubs!

The moral of the story is, thank you for your apology Christian, but if you were truly sorry, you’d be out searching for a tiger to pose with. Get back at me when you have an updated profile!

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

Today is a great day. It’s the official 2014 Toronto Blue Jays home opener. Spring! Hope! Baseball! I’ve been dancing around my office all morning like above and counting down the seconds until I can go for drinks before the game.

I know that first picture isn’t a picture of a tiger on Tinder… but we at Tigers of Tinder are strong Blue Jays supporters and need to recognize this glorious day.

And to make it relevant, I’ve added Ajay. A guy… on Tinder… with a Tiger… Doing the unique things that Ajay does (for example, posing with a tiger on Tinder).
