With the recent release of Tudder, a Tinder-style dating app for cows, you’d think we’ve officially jumped the shark when it comes to helping people and living creatures find companionship.
Well you’d be wrong.
Introducing Timber, the latest dating app that matches tree lovers with beautiful trees!
Described as “the first ever dating service matching tree lovers with beautiful trees around the globe, Timber was developed by Hasqvarna, a Swedish outdoor power equipment company, in collaboration with social media agency Stendhals.
Working like a much more wholesome Tinder with less dick pics and more puns, Timber allows its tree-loving users to swipe left or right until they match with the tree of their dreams.
And who said romance in 2019 was dead?
This was designed clearly as a goofy Valentine’s Day thing, as well as a spoof on dating apps, but the effort gone into some of the trees’ profiles is far more than what we see on actual dating apps.
The photos are high quality, there are no confusing group shots, no mirror selfies to be found, and the descriptions are top notch.
Seriously, here are some of these great tree profile descriptions:
- Eucalyptus, 250 years old, “I come from a land down under”
- Magnolia, 90 years old – “I’m a late bloomer”
- Elm, 75 years old – “I love horror movies”
- Cherry, 18 years old – “There’s a reason they call it ‘cherry on top’”
If only Tinder profiles were as wholesome and well thought out as Timber then the whole dating thing would be so much simpler.
