    This New "Among Us" Dating Trend Has Me Debating Whether I Should Laugh Or Cringe

    Why is Among Us becoming the new Tinder for 14-year-olds?

    Unless you're living under a rock, you've definitely heard of Among Us. It's a multiplayer game where one, two, or even three people are set as "imposters." From there you just complete tasks and figure out who the imposters are.

    It's super simple, but so fun — I'm obsessed.

    For the past few weeks, it's been the talk of the internet. Basically, everyone is playing it. And when I say everyone, I mean EVERYONE. Even AOC has joined in on the fun.

    With all the hype around the game, there have obviously been a lot of memes and trends floating around. One of the more random trends is people using the game to find love/shoot their shot.

    I guess Among Us is the new Tinder 🤣

    Videos and screenshots are popping up on TikTok and Twitter showing people flirting in between emergency meetings.

    It can be an emotional rollercoaster, to be honest.

    Clearly this method seems to be working for some people. People are definitely fascinated in the trend — this video (of a successful Among Us romance!) has 11.2 million views.

    Yeah it's kinda crazy, but hey it just might work 🤷‍♀️

    But beware, like I said before it doesn't always work for everyone...

    But hey, if you too can get 35 million views from being catfished, then I say wear your heart on your sleeve and go for it.

    There you have it folks — just another sign that 2020 is the strangest year ever. Good luck to all of you imposters out there that are just trying to find your soulmate!
