The Tinder Tree

Once upon a time, people were used to sending love letters manually written. They had pen pals and lovers they had the chance to meet maybe a few times before getting married and staying together for the rest of their lives.

Nowadays, we use apps and social media to meet people and to get in touch with them. 

And how long are going to last these relationships? Not more than a few months, because both girls and boys, usually find another more “interesting” person just swiping to the left or to the right.

So, if you are wondering how you could find your soulmate, there's a more than 600-year-old oak tree in Germany that could help you.

It has been faired that in 1890, the oak tree helped two lovers to exchange love letters because the girl's father didn't approve the relationship. But when he found out the way the two were using to communicate, he then accepted their love.

Since then, this ancient tree is helping people all over the world to find their loved ones. 

People can write to his inbox and wait for a response from another person who found interesting their letter.

If you don't believe it, then you should know that even the postman who was in charge to deliver nearly 1000 letters to the tree each year, found his soulmate thanks to it.

So, go and uninstall your dating app, and start writing a proper love letter, not a cheeky comment under another random picture you found on Instagram.
