Will Shreveport-Bossier Want Vax Badges on Dating Profiles?
Imagine scrolling through your preferred dating website and being able to select who you weed out without having to scroll through their profile. What if one simple badge was the indication if you'd swipe right or swipe left? The White House announced on Friday that they plan to team up with some of the most popular dating apps to apply vaccination badges to potential dates.
According to KGET.com some of the most popular dating apps plan to add "vaccination badges and 'super swipes' for people who’ve gotten their coronavirus shots.". Apparently, this was a big push from the Biden administration I guess this is a way to give potential daters some benefits, and nop I'm not talking friends with benefits.
Bumble, Match, Hinge, and Tinder have signed up to add the vaccination badges and OKCupid took it a little further than the other apps. They plan to let love-seekers use a filter to seek people who are vaccinated just like them. No vaccine? No chance with someone who is vaccinated, sorry kids.
Here is my question, why are we doing badges for a vaccination? Since when were we able to do badges? Why are we not doing badges to find out if someone has a job?
I once went on a date with a guy who had several DUI's and no job. My unfortunate date mentioned he was struggling to find a job because of his previous DUI's and having a suspended license. Of course, this story wasn't mentioned until we met in person. I would have never gone on a date with a guy who was piecing his life together, sorry, not signing up for a project. Why do I feel like several people in Shreveport-Bossier have gone through the same? Dating using an app can be plain shady. We can all lie about who we are.
With so many shady people in the dating scene in Shreveport-Bossier don't you think that just like I can lie about my height and weight I can lie about my vaccine? From what I understand there is no type of proof required when submitting requesting your vaccine badge.
Will the vaccine badge be something that you use or even want to use when planning a date? Do you think this is something that folks in Shreveport-Bossier can benefit from?
