Someone “on Tender" is a new Tinder user unfamiliar with the ethos, etiquette and mentality, comprising the app’s dualistic sociality of idealized, YOLO-ironic hookup culture and societally significant Millennial sexual progressiveness, resulting in a lack of matches and an overly innocent approach to interacting with matches.
Although Mark only recently joined Tinder, little does he know he's actually On Tender: One month in, and due to his shy nature, sense of propriety, and fear of meaningless sex, he has only 14 matches, two responses from those matches, and zero dates.
