This Week: German moms on Tinder = quite possibly the best wingwomen we know
So it turns out that, wherever you are in the world, some things always hold true: dating’s weird, dating apps are even more so, and having Mom swipe on your behalf? It’s equal parts well-meaning and mortifying — as BuzzFeed Germany most recently highlighted in one of their latest videos, Moms Using Tinder For Their Kids.
This video (which has English subtitles) was created via a partnership with Tinder with the goal of making a German audience more comfortable about using dating apps, according to Phil Jahner, BuzzFeed Germany’s head of video and deputy head of entertainment.
