The idea of going back to the office is one that’s likely to inspire mixed feelings. You’ll likely be mentally preparing to make a lot more small talk with humans that aren’t your flatmates. But also, humans! Rooms that aren’t your kitchen! Lunch that you didn’t make!
Yes that’s right, while some companies have delayed their return to office until 2022, other workers have begun returning to workplaces amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And if you happen to be among them, you might be lamenting the ability to swipe on dating apps in between your umpteen Zoom meetings.
But fret not, Tinder is bringing back Work Mode so you can swipe on desktop with a handy fake project management tool that lets you inconspicuously keep up the appearance of doing actual work if someone suddenly walks by your desk.
5 things you can’t do on Tinder
So, how exactly does it work?
To get going on Tinder’s Work Mode, simply go to Tinder.com on your desktop browser and log in. Once you’re in, you can start swiping on profiles by clicking left or right. Rather handily, you can also reply to messages too.
If you’re about to get caught in the mid-swipe act by a colleague, click on the mini briefcase in the corner of the screen and a fake project management tool will magically appear.
Work Mode has a handy fake project management tool so you can keep your job.
Tinder does advise you swipe during work hours with a touch of moderation.
Sure you might have just swiped on the love of your life, but we don’t want you to get fired in your pursuit of romance.
