It took me about five minutes to compile a list that I felt represented my tastes fairly well.My profile complete, I sat back and waited for something to happen.I downloaded Tinder along with the rest of the millennials, but eventually the messages of late-night desperation became more of an annoyance than an amusement, and I decided the storage on my phone could be put to better use. A dating site based in London and celebrating its fourth birthday on June 11, Tastebuds just became available for i Phones last month.

A man with the username “deep_ended” sent me a You Tube link to “Tree by the River” by Iron & Wine, and before I could even finish listening to that, he sent the acoustic version of “40 Day Dream” by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. They’re slow and beautiful and can be magical if used in the correct context.

In “40 Day Dream,” Edward Sharpe croons, “She got jumper cable lips / She got sunset on her breath now / I inhaled just a little bit / Now I got no fear of death now.” If someone that really knew me said that song made him think of me, I’d probably swoon no, I’d definitely swoon.

But this complete stranger had never heard so much as a single word from me, let alone been close enough to check out the spark on my “jumper cable lips.” It was while analyzing the lyrics that I realized he was cheating — and Tastebuds was helping him do it.

I couldn’t have put my finger on it before I downloaded the app, but a big part of the excitement of sharing music tastes with someone comes in the process of discovering that. As excited as I was about the idea of Tastebuds before I downloaded it, I can’t say that I’m a fan after using it.

Genius Idea: Hey music snobs, are you tired of people asking you, "What kind of music do you listen to? Well, musicians Alex Parish and Julian Keenaghan have created a dating site perfect for folks who judge others solely by what's on their i Pods.

Tastebuds is a graphically pleasing site that's super easy to use.

It didn’t take long; I had three messages within two minutes, and they kept rolling in.

Most were fairly standard greetings of the “Hey, what’s up? The app apparently includes actions you can choose as well, like giving someone a “furry bear hug” or asking what the craziest thing they’ve ever done is.

Personally I don’t think it’s all that flattering when someone selects a pre-written message to send on an app that’s supposed to be based on individuality, but it’s not a bad idea for less confident (or lazy) users.
