Transcript for '10 Dates in 10 States' Hits Hawaii for Tinder Date
now we move on to our "10 dates in 10 states." Our producer Erica Scott is in the middle of her digital dating adventure across America fresh off date number two in Hawaii getting ready for date number three in L.A. And she's got some advice on the popular dating apps she's using to find a match. ? Okay, guys, we're ready for date number two, Doug will be here in a few minutes, 25, he loves to surf. He's a hawaiian native so knows what he's doing better than I will. I'm here to meet Erica. Yeah. ? Date number two is in the books. It was a lot of fun, paddle boarding at the resort. Tuesday's date was on thing and Wednesday's date was on tinder. Hinge, you have a mutual Facebook friend whereas tinder is infamous for letting you swipe left or right based on whether you think someone looks good. So you're kind of just judging them based on their looks. You grew up in Hawaii. Yeah. My whole life. I thought Doug looked like a cool guy. A lot assume you won't find meaningful relationships on tinder because unlike having a mutual friend on hinge you have no idea what they'll be like in real life. There is no way of me knowing after only one date with josh from hinge or Doug from tinder but I have to believe both seemed genuine and true to their profiles. Thank you. Nice to meet you. One of the reasons the date with Doug was so cool because it was so active. Conversation was running smoothly because we had something to do and went paddle boarding in the lagoon and snorkeling in rainbow reef. ? now we obviously had a date during the day but according to match 60% of singles think that the evening is a better time for a date and they also think that Saturday is the best day of the week for it so it kind of seems like I'm just breaking all the rules. Erica joins us from Hawaii right now. Breaking the rules but that date looked like some fun, Erica, right there. What about the difference between these two apps right there, hinge and tinder. Is tinder living up to its reputation of being more superficial. I think there are a lot of connotations that maybe it's for more casual hookups but I don't think the app should define the date. A lot of things you get out of it what you put into it. If you want to find someone you might be able to again ate a meaningful relationship. Who knows. I think we all know someone who met someone on tinder. Might be a little -- You just dated me, I think right there. What is this tinder you speak of? But you got date number three in L.A. Today and you're actually going to stop by the tinder headquarters when you're in town. What do you want to ask the founder? So I actually was really wondering, I downloaded tinder plus which is really useful for this project because it lets you have multiple locations which obviously when I'm in New York and I need to look for someone in Vegas that was so helpful. But I have to believe if you're just the average person using it, surely that must be for the more casual hook-up, you might say so I want to see what he thinks about that. I'll bet you do. It will be fascinating to have a chance to talk to him as you go on date number three. So you're living through this with two hats, going on the dates and also reporting on it. What are the big things you're learning here? So I'm actually one of those people like many I know that grew up with divorced parents and at that age where everybody always reminds me it's incredibly important for a life partner you choose, so I'm curious, is my generation shifting into a new type of relationship norm where if you're meeting someone online you have a better perception of who they are, is it going to change the statistic of one in two marriages ending in divorce, it may not but it's something interesting that we're going to find out. Yeah, that is interesting to think about. Thank you very much, Erica. Ahead, safe travels to L.A. And all at home can follow her journey on our website and weigh in on #teninten on "Gma." We want to give a big thank
