Just when you thought social media couldn't get any more refined, a social media dating app is coming into the picture with Glimpse, combining Tinder and Instagram sharing and dating functions.

It syncs with your Instagram feed, shuffling a deck of potential romances based on your location. Glimpse encourages users to use the nine-photo capacity to paint a well-rounded picture of who you are. That's why it pulls from Instagram, which deems sharing everything from food and travel to self-portraits, fair game.

Glimpse believes "we're telling the wrong story," in that seeing the world through a potential date's eyes is more enticing than coveted muscles or a pretty face. Combining Tinder and Instagram is a natural next step.
