If I had done my normal Internet stalking in advance, I would have discovered this. I messaged them both and told them that I just realized I was also talking with their friend. Turns out, these two guys don’t just know each other; they’ve been best friends for over a decade.

There's no denying it: it's fun sleeping with someone you barely know.I know, I know, there's a load of people that would frown upon such a statement, but we all know it's true.
You just heard the bartender shout “last call.” You don’t want to go home alone or without as much as a phone number, so you turn on the charm and flirt with the bar-goer next to you because, hey, the bar is closing and what do you have to lose? There’s something about these wee hours of the night.

Tinder didn’t respond to our request for data or comment, but after hearing countless stories of late night Tinder, we have no doubt that the app experiences the same phenomenon.
The excitement in the bar or at dinner when you both know what's coming.
Then when you get home and you're deciding whether to be direct or whether to carry on the conversational foreplay to build the tension a bit more.
