Candace Bushnell on Tinder, Dating in Her 50s, and Women Who Marry for Money

By Julie Miller

What would Carrie Bradshaw think of Tinder? Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell’s new book, Is There Still Sex in the City?—about the author’s recent return to the world of dating—gives audiences an idea. Bushnell writes that she wasn’t necessarily excited to try out the app—but after her 2012 divorce, former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown suggested that Bushnell write about returning to the singles pool as a 50-something. One of the author’s friends also pleaded with Bushnell to turn her anthropological eye to Tinder specifically, which she thought was ruining her friends’ lives.
