First, let’s get the serious stuff out of the way. Rad’s parent company Match recently filed to go public. So the company is in a quiet period, right? Sure. Unless you’re Rad.
Now, let’s get to the…other stuff. Presented without
written comment, here’s Rad’s life in a series of quotes from the piece:
On his reception at
his concert with U2 Web Summit in Dublin:
“…bigger than Instagram’s” and full of “screaming” fans. It was like a concert. Tech, I guess, is more important than it was. It’s like the new rock.”
love ? on Tinder, to which he says he’s “addicted”:
“…every other week I fall in love with a new girl. I’m focused. It’s such a critical time for the company so unfortunately I don’t have a lot of time for any of that.”
pursued stalked by a model:
…a “supermodel, someone really, really famous” has been “begging” him for sex “and I’ve been like, no”. She’s “taunted” him, he says, and “called me a prude”.
More on the model:
“She’s one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen but it doesn’t mean that I want to rip her clothes off and have sex with her. Attraction is nuanced. I’ve been attracted to women who are … well, who my friends might think are ugly. I don’t care if someone is a model. Really. It sounds clichéd and almost totally unbelievable for a guy to say this, but it’s true. I need an intellectual challenge.”
“Apparently there’s a term for someone who gets turned on by intellectual stuff. You know, just talking. What’s the word? I want to say ‘sodomy’?”

On the Vanity Fair article that caused the company to lash out against the reporter personally, and doing “background research on her”:
“…there’s some stuff about her as an individual that will make you think differently.”
You can read the rest here if you like. Here’s to finding love on Tinder.
And a big “pop” at IPO time.
