Nana Meriwether is an incredibly attractive 6-foot-tall All-American volleyball player who holds a graduate degree from USC. She was Miss USA in 2012. She is what you might call a catch.
But Nana allegedly can't get a date in New York City, despite her hotness and—let's face it—future earnings potential. So, she claims, she turned to Tinder in April, where every single straight guy in the country has lived for the last eight months or so. From NY Mag:
It seems even Trump-approved beauty queens need help navigating the New York dating scene sometimes.
"It's funny — the guys I've said yes to have all been like, 'Are you real?'" Meriwether told the Cut last week. "I'm like, 'Yeah, of course.' Even pageant-title-holders get lonely."
"Mostly I joined because a friend told me to, but I think it could be a great way to meet people, especially in New York City," she said. "I think when you're single, you should try all avenues. And now there are so many new apps for dating — this one is just really fun."
I think I believe her (just like I also believe she's currently cashing a check from Tinder for all the publicity this story has provided). But what I found hard to believe was the image of Meriwether drunkenly awake at 3 a.m., scrolling through potential matches like a pathetic, technology-addicted rube, right thumb physically unable to to move to the left. Then I got to this quote:
"I don't usually do it alone in my room," Meriwether laughed. "It's fun to play when you have nothing else to do. I don't take it very seriously."
Uh, yeah. Guys don't either!
