Death by Swiping: Quit Tinder and Take Back Your Life

I joined tinder for the same reason most of us probably do: half for laughs, half to see what it was like, and half because I was 3/4 through a bottle of Chianti.

Lexington, Kentucky. Affectionately known as the “Horse Capital of the World,” Lexington is a beautiful city full of southern charm. Surrounded by lush rolling hills is a downtown area exploding with new restaurants and trendy watering holes. EAT 1.
