Need a new dating app?

By

Funny Women editor Elissa Bassist has a very funny piece over at The New Yorker about the dating apps of 2014. This one sounds good:

Unhinged

Description: Disconnect from old connections. Designed for the dumped, the living alone, and the emotionally delayed.

How it works: Unhinged is an app and a lifestyle. It defriends, unfollows, dislikes, unsubscribes from, and un-whatever-it’s-called-when-you-no-longer-see-someone-on-Pinterest. It disables notifications, mental stability, and preferences, as well as deletes up-tempo songs containing the word “love,” all browser and romantic history, and erotic ephemera, like expired sexts. Special features include: events to avoid, antidepressant side effects, Adele lyrics.

As the tagline says: Owning a smartphone is the first step to hooking up.
