Tinder Welcomes Class of 2019

And parents everywhere are rejoicing.

School’s out, summer’s in session, and 18-year-olds around the nation are finally taking their happiness into their own hands.

“Thank god for Tinder,” says Betty Sommerson, mother of graduating senior Chad Sommerson. “I was beginning to think the coddling would never end.”

We hear you, Mrs. Sommerson. And more importantly, we’re here for you. We know Chad’s got a lot going for him. You’ve raised him well. You’ve taught him some solid values. You’ve done an impeccable job and our hat’s off to you. But now, he’s ready for the next chapter of his life. So you can relax. We’ll take it from here.

Sure Chad, you might have hoped your graduation gift would be a new car, or a trip to Mykonos. But we’re here to give you and your classmates something infinitely more rewarding. We give you the gift of Tinder.
