So, each month we'll test drive the latest dating apps and report back on what's worth your time.
But let’s stop lying to ourselves: Tinder is the WORST. Whether you’re using it for serious dating purposes, doing some self-esteem-boosting flirting, or are just trying to get laid, Tinder is not all it’s cracked up to be. The realisation that the world’s hottest people are not secretly hiding away on an app Oh, I’ve been swiping left for the last hour.
Knowing how to approach each date and figuring out the process is crucial here. The idea is that a Tinder date is all about meeting with a new person.
It can bring in front some challenges if you are not careful. So what you want to do is to make the person comfortable.
Stop messing up my game with your tech issues, Tinder. Attempting to sell yourself with 5 profile pictures is torturous Here, world, take these carefully selected photos of myself and judge me with everything you’ve got. But it’s nothing compared to the struggle of crafting a bio How do I sum myself up in a way that makes me sound smart, emotionally stable, and not at all braggy? Constant threesome requests Surely Tinder should be for single people desperately trying not to be alone, not you smug couples trying to spice things up with a third. People immediately taking things to bizarrely sexual levels We’ve been speaking via app for three minutes, don’t think you know me well enough to be narrating your deepest sexual desires. It has massive stalker potential Yes, it’s unlikely, but someone COULD track you down by keeping an eye on when the ‘distance away’ decreases.
The constant sting of rejection Because sometimes, you are kind of holding out for that person you swiped right on. Or for them to read your trying-and-failing-to-play-it-cool bio. It’s actually a bit rubbish, functionality-wise Constant crashes, frequent disappearing messages, and no notifications when you need them. And even more massive social media stalking potential People like to pretend it’s all so anonymous and free.
Plus, you do want to enjoy yourself as much as you can. Well, you should consider the preferences shared on Tinder.
