On Tinder, pictures of people appear, and with the swipe of a finger you can say "like" or "no thanks." The other person never knows if you don’t "like" or "reject" them.You only get notified if you both express interest.Remember, that “hilarious” mate who insists on insulting a woman to get her interest won’t get you anywhere.
Gladwell also uses the term “thin slicing” to describe the phenomenon by which we can sometimes evaluate situations and make decisions almost instantaneously, with a seemingly miniscule amount of information and without actual logical reasoning.
This is a scientific description of what I think of in some situations as “intuition”.
When I “e-meet” someone, that is connect online, I often have strong and immediate feelings that I like them or that I don’t, even though I have never seen them or talked to them in person.
It is not a stretch to see that this feeling of connection can be experienced by many people as an intimate and even sexual attraction.
We were approaching our final destination and stood up to queue by the train doors, as British people feel compelled to do.
