The positives to living in South Florida greatly outweigh the negatives; it's always 80 degrees, at any given time you are just minutes from a beautiful beach, and there are no shortage of beautiful single people.
The problem is — to have all these things, most of us have to work too hard to fully capitalize on them. While they haven't exactly come up with an app yet to help you go to the beach more often, many in South Florida have become increasingly comfortable with turning to Tinder to help them with that finding love thing.
So once you've actually swiped right and found someone you want to meet offline, where do you go? Here are a few suggestions as to where you should meet that special Tinderoni for the first time. Did I just invent the term "Tinderoni"?
Yes, I did. Hollywood Broadwalk There is a fine line with beach dates.
You can't ask a person who amounts to a stranger to walk on a dark or isolated beach with you; that's just creepy. But the Hollywood Boardwalk is full of funky shops, bars, and restaurants — and funkier people.
The people-watching is like free entertainment. The key here is to keep things public and not ring the stranger-danger alarm — so act normal, dammit.
On beach dates, skip any fishing pier; it's just going to be filled with creepy guys and a strong fish smell. I support.
