Ugh Tinder, why you gotta do a girl so dirty?! 200 plus matches and yet no appropriate suitors.
The amount of empty, useless conversations I have had so far on this app has made me consider moving to a deserted island but I guess that may be because what I'm looking for in my life isn't ever going to be found on tinder. So why am I even using it?
Honestly, I don't know how to answer without sounding like I'm contradicting myself but I'm going to try...
1) I'm busy! Tinder allows me to sift through all the duds at my own leisure without any commitments. I've learnt that my time is precious so I need to be selective about who I spend it with.
2) When in a bar/club with a few drinks under my belt, I become a savage. If I'm out with friends, the last thing I want is to be sitting in a corner with some guy who can't even hear me over the music.
3) I get to have a taste of all the flavors hahaha! I can talk to a range of different guys to see what I like, what I don't and just have a good ol' laugh!
Don't get me wrong, I met my last boyfriend using tinder but look how that turned out haha! I have managed to arrange a few dates from this handy little app but there's been a lot more swiping left than anything.
My tinder profile is too legit to quit. Stipulates the terms of what I like in a guy and I think shows my sense of humor just enough to not scare them away hahahahaha! See below for the screenshot :)
*Laughter, If your profile gives me a giggle **Swipe Right** *Named 'Nick or Todd' **Swipe Left** (Yeah I know what your thinking) *Adventurous pics **Swipe Right** *Cat Pics **Swipe Left** *Facial Hair **Swipe Right** *Blank Profile Description **Swipe Left** *Dog Pics **Swipe Right** *Shirtless Pics **Swipe Left** *Starts conversation with DTF **BLOCKED**
Tinder is a lot like window shopping, you can look as much as you want, try it on and walk out with no commitment. Plus, how often can you set up dates in your pjs with odd socks on whilst eating a cup of noodles without being judged???
Is looking for Love on tinder just setting me up for disappointment? Maybe but it's really my only option at the moment. Social media and technology has made it hard to meet people in real life and have an actual conversation but it has given me the ability to reduce wasted time. There is nothing more precious than time!
Will I continue to use the app? Yes, when I'm bored and require some entertainment. Will I continue to set dates up from the app? Yep, a girls gotta eat. Will I still search for the next big spoon on there? Probably till I find a better option.
Honestly its not all that bad, there are some half decent guys on tinder and I have learnt some great lessons from the dates I've been on but I'm definitely not putting all my eggs in the one basket.
There's still hope for a little lost soul in this world, whether its on a dating app or being set up on dates. Someone who's crazy matches my crazy will eventually walk into my life and make me delete the app and go back to real face to face conversation. Unlucky for them though because after the third date the unfiltered, not make up, unbrushed hair version of me will be all they'll get from there forward. Sorry!
