So "Princess Diaries 2" Basically Invented Tinder And At Least Now I Have Someone To Blame My Bad Dates On

Who WOULDN'T swipe right on Prince William?

If you grew up in the early 2000s — or watched the Disney Channel for even two minutes — you probably remember The Princess Diaries and its sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement.

The story is simple: Girl discovers she's a princess, girl learns to be a princess, girl kisses the right guy and her leg pops. You know, normal teen drama with a KILLER makeover montage thrown in.

You might also remember that our girl Mia faced a rather huge dilemma in the second movie: She had to get married within a month to keep her crown.

So she did what any of us in that situation would do, and she began looking for a bae. And, if you really think about it — just like Twitter user Mary Lavelle did — Princess Diaries 2 basically invented pre-Tinder...and I am SHOOK.

So, basically, the Princess Diaries 2 invented Tinder???? I guess we might never know for sure, but it's nice to speculate. (And finally have someone else to blame for my online dating fails.) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  1. What do you think? Did Mia Thermopolis invent Tinder?

    Yes, duh. She had to find someone new to make her leg pop!
    Calm down, she was just going through her suitors!
    Yes, but why didn't she just do what we all do: get drunk and text her ex? (Ugh, I'll always miss you, Michael "From Rooney" Moscovitz).
    Can Julie Andrews come and help me run my Tinder?
