Think of tinder for way to describe the new way to find friends. 

I actually am not totally opposed to this and think it's similar to finding friends on Facebook. Especially in Montana where we do have less people sometimes finding friends can be tough. Or if you are in College and you just moved here, finding a spot to fit in can be rough. That's where the dating app company Bumble comes in. They have now allowed you a chance to find friends instead of dates!   (Tech Crunch).

You have to switch to BFF mode but once there you can find other friends with similar interests nearby. Once you both swipe right then you have 2 hours to make a conversation and become acquainted.

Seems like a cool idea but they only pair you up with the same sex and I personally know I have a lot of friends of the opposite sex.
