Tindr for Mentoring
It blows my mind when I hear friends talk about how they were bored one evening and with Tindr spent it out on a date. Instant entertainment and excellent match making... what if that could happen for mentoring?
What makes Tindr so effective is that you have a lot of simple opportunities that you can selfishly select based on if they appeal to you. While I don't know how this would translate to mentoring exactly, in Tindr you rank how attractive you think someone is. If both of you agree, then you can talk about doing something. Could activities be paired up in this way between a Mentor and mentee? Could a mentor use their phone to select ideas and activities they liked and if the mentee (the elder) also wanted to try this out, they could message each other to see if they wanted to meet up? Would this be a more productive use of my friends'time when they're bored?
