A new Tinder-like site has taken inspiration from Hindu culture to create a service which generates fake arranged marriages.
Hindur is a new parody dating site, which like the popular dating app, lets users sign up and swipe on potential matches.
But there is a catch. Unlike Tinder, users do not have the ability to “swipe left” on profiles they are not interested in, and what’s more, they can only “swipe right” once.
Once a user has used their single right swipe, they are greeted by a box which reads, “Congrats! You’re getting married”, alongside a button telling them to “Meet Your Spouse”.
“Yet after all this effort, nearly half our marriages end in divorce.
“Since we’re not choosing our way into happiness, perhaps we should take a page from Hindu culture and have someone else choose for us.”
By giving users no freedom to select who they match with, Hindur reflects the way in which some cultures setup arranged marriages, without letting the individuals choose who they wed.
