If the god of love is too busy to fulfil love wishes, Tinder might be able to help. The dating application Tinder Thailand is collaborating with CentralWorld in Bangkok to launch the Valentine’s Day campaign LOVE destiNATION right in front of a popular shrine where many go to pray for love.

In front of the Trimurti Shrine by the shopping centre, Tinder has placed stickers on the ground with their logo of a flame to encourage people to social distance… and also to download the app. The stickers say like “Let’s match!” and “Pray and swipe right.” There’s also a photo booth where people can take photos for their new accounts on the dating app. Offering sets will also be available for free on February 10, 14 and 17. Usually, people will leave nine red roses, nine red incense sticks, two red candles, a red soda, and nine red fruits.

Many single Thais flock to the shrine on Valentine’s Day to pray for a relationship, but some who are looking for love come throughout the year, particularly on Thursdays at 9:30pm because it is considered a lucky day and time. Some argue that the shrine of Trimurti is actually another Hindu deity, but the shrine is still popular among Thais looking for love.
