Aspen has long been a hot spot for amorous escapades, what with its tight geography, hedonistic culture, and evolving mix of worldly visitors and locals pursuing the Aspen Idea of enhanced "mind, body, and spirit" OK, sometimes it's more about body and spirits when it comes to jet-sitting singles. Apps have revolutionized the dating culture in big cities - how do they stack up here? Still, because meeting men in the mountains is inevitable—females comprise the rarer sex in the Rockies, after all—she began the mating dance with a guy.
Not for long. I gave up on the dating game in Aspen. So, as it happened, Allison got a part-time gig helping an acquaintance run pop-up events for Bumble. The location-based app, which bills itself as a casual social connector of paramours, pals and even business partners in which ladies make the first move, has established a growing presence in Aspen over the past year. Bumble hosts frequent meetup events during peak seasons with local businesses including athleisure brand Outdoor Voices, Escobar and Highlands Ale House.
After some easy banter, Allison suggested the natural next step. So great, in fact, that Allison and Matt recently closed on a house in Carbondale. She also learned that Tom, who lives in Boulder, was divorced—something few of his Facebook friends knew. A few years ago, a cache of happy anecdotes about app dating in Aspen might have struck as surprising.
But much seems to have changed since hookup app Tinder first infiltrated the Wild West circa Back then the digital dating landscape was vastly different: Apps were few and users scattered. Tinder: A location-based dating app that allows users to browse profiles of potential mates nearby.
Swiping right: On many dating apps, swiping right on a profile means liking it. If both users swipe right on each other, they match and a chat function is enabled. Women hold the cards in this app: Only they can initiate messaging af ter a match is made.
Perhaps the most popular platform in Aspen, due to frequent branded events. Ghosting: Sudden cessation of correspondence sans explanation, leaving the other party to wonder if that person has been hit by a bus. Tinder Roulette: Indiscriminately swiping right on all profiles and reviewing matches later. Due to a small population and geographic area, scouting mates in a cool ski town such as Aspen presents singular challenges—via dating apps or not. Anything you desire is right there. People come to expect that in every aspect of their lives—and in relationships.
Which can make dating extra-difficult. When new partnerships face obstacles, Cole says, people panic. It must be the partner. They seek the next wave of newer, shinier, prettier, richer. Dating apps present opportunity at the tap of a finger. Unsurprisingly, the therapists cite data that Aspen is home to the highest of divorcees of any town in Colorado, almost twice the state average.
Say what? Like, three. While foreigners are able to hop a fast flight out of ASE and leave late-night transgressions in the dust, locals grapple with a universal issue: lack of anonymity. In a town of just two grocery stores, good luck ghosting on that lame Tinder date!
Indeed: Cole, 53, shares a tale of encountering one dud of a Tinder date when she arrived at his office, several months later, unaware she was seeking counseling from someone she had ly been out with. Some good news for those on the market: Folks who flock to Aspen—to live, work, play or all three—are in a prime class: athletic, brainy, cosmopolitan and charismatic, with an eye for beauty and palate for luxury.
No doubt Aspen is a hotbed of joie de vivre. In Aspen, though, mileage can be misleading. During Christmas weekKatie, a year-old media professional then living in Denver, logged on to Tinder while visiting family in Aspen. After 48 hours, though, Katie began chatting with Craig, a photographer and recent Manhattan transplant, three years older. Swipe right for a handy app-dating glossary. Within a week I found Katie.
Now cohabitating in Snowmass Village—and insistent that I use their real names—the couple is vocal about how they linked up. I call her my Tinderoni. It was just a more sociable time. While it may be true that many are lucky in app-love, Kret and Cole caution against prioritizing ease and efficiency over meaningful intimacy built over time. That gets confused as love—I feel so good! Up. Search Our Site. Grindr: Same concept as Tinder, specifically for men interested in meeting men.
