Instagram is chugging forward like a loaded freight train and stealing market share left and right. It has become popular among foodies, fashionistas, and just about everyone else. Now, people are finding love on the revolutionary photo-sharing service.
I know it may sound crazy, but I believe Instagram is truly the best online dating site. Unlike a conventional dating website where you signup and share strategically selected information for others to see you as you wish to be seen, however accurate such appearances may be, Instagram allows others to see who you really are (if your profile is public). Hashtags are the window into someone’s soul and paint a picture as to who they are. Do you live in New York City and love food? Browse the #NYC and #foodie hashtags to find your perfect match. Do you enjoy riding your bike on the beach in Santa Monica? See who’s posting under the #santamonica or #cycling hashtags. There are tons of possibilities, and some of the best matches occur when both parties aren’t hunting for a partner in crime.
Interestingly enough, just the other day a good friend of mine mentioned flying from Los Angeles to Texas to meet a lady he met on Instagram. After doing some thinking, I’m convinced: Instagram is the most transparent, functional dating website. No costs, no ulterior motives and no smoke screens.
