Swipe Right: If Chicago Neighborhoods had Tinder Profiles

Wouldn't it be great if picking a Chicago neighborhood to live in was as easy as swiping right?

If we had our way, it would be that easy! Every neighborhood is inhabited by a very distinct personality type. So distinct in fact, that they really COULD have their own dating profiles.

That's exactly what we imagined at AptAmigo. We wondered, what would a Tinder profile look like for each personality type in each neighborhood?
