I told myself I would never get a Tinder but here I am now anyways. I thought the site was only for hookups which I wasn't interested in but it turns out there's more room to play than just that. However, I've noticed many ridiculous behaviors from the women on Tinder (women, please chime your ridiculous experiences with men on Tinder in the answers below). Here's a comprehensive list of things I keep observing:
-Doesn't have a bio at all or puts something stupid like a movie quote or their sorority's letters. Because your sorority obviously describes your entire being and I can totally decipher your character traits from letters of the Greek alphabet. -Uploads photos exclusively with multiple women in them. WHICH ONE ARE YOU? -"I'm just here for the dog pictures", "I'm just here for the corny pickup lines", "I probably only swiped right because of your dog", "If you have a dog in your photo you're automatically a 4", "I sure ain't a size 2 but you sure ain't Channing Tatum f**ker" -My personal favorite, "I don't message first. :)", Why the f**k not? Are you really that lazy of a woman? -Matches you, you send something simple like, "Good morning! I'm front2back, how are you?", and they NEVER RESPOND. Why did you swipe right in the first place? -Tries to hide their obese body by sucking in and/or just only showing their face (like my ex is doing now). -Only uploads two photos that honestly don't show you anything about their looks that well. -Trying to find a girl without one of those trashy nose studs or that is covered in tats is like trying to find a good movie in the Walmart $5 DVD bin. It's nigh impossible.
Here are some fine works of art I had to save:
I'm startling to lose faith. I've had some matches so far but like I said, you message and there's no respone. I'll just keep swiping away until Sydney from high school finally swipes right back. :(
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH oh man. I'm a girl and I'm cracking up so hard at those profile bios. Oh god help their souls. Jesus flippin chirst. Met my boyfriend online but not on tinder. Met through an online game. Tbh i dont trust tinder at all. but all the best mate. XD
These profiles are obviously set up to be humorous. The Gillette one? That's been circulating the net for months now with countless women reusing the phrase.
Tinder is not a serious app and most people don't use it to look for a life partner, but rather for shits and giggles. When I set up my Okcupid profile year ago, I made sure to make it as least serious and most sarcastic and cynical as possible to weed out all the mundane guys that start of all their conversations with their stale "Hi how r u?"s and have nothing substantial to say afterwards.
These girls are not crazy, you're just a very boring person with no sense of humour.
I don't use the app, but I think some women use apps like that to get validation that people are into them and boost their self-esteem, not really planning on going through and meeting anyone. And a lot of people with weird profiles might not take it seriously and are just using it for fun.
Yeah tinder can be rough. Try being a girl and constantly being asked for sex when you state in your profile you aren't here for the hookups for friends with benefits or anything like that. It's annoying. There are the idiot tinder guys and girls. Wait til you get the clingy tinder girl who you've tried to tell stop to but she insists you're the one... I've had a couple of those guys already. You'll find a good match eventually... although I've been on tinder for 6 months now and still all shit.
Well I don't use tinder, was thinking about trying it though. But god some of those profiles were hilarious. And/Or honest. I mean you can't complain about the girl saying exactly what she wants, which is a BDSM relationship from what I can gather
"Because your sorority obviously describes your entire being " https://youtu.be/7nuyMaUkrRQ?t=3m5s (from 3:05) and I guess it applies to sororities as well. lol But well what they're doing is just telling you something they're passionate about
"Matches you, you send something simple like, "Good morning! I'm front2back, how are you?", and they NEVER RESPOND. Why did you swipe right in the first place" well you know swiping right isn't a commitment. My friend uses tinder and sometimes she shows me profiles asking if she should swipe right or left and I keep saying when in doubt just swipe right, you got nothing to lose you don't even have to talk to him and she was saying well some get kinda mad if you don't reply and it's annoying. Don't be that guy
Telling ya, the guys aren't much better. I had a tinder before I met my boyfriend, and around 80% of messages were simply asking for a fuck, and the rest of them started out ok, then ended with the guy being a sociopath/major creep/potential rapist. Tinder is a bad place. A bad, bad place.
First off. There's nothing wrong with nose studs. I have had mine for 12 years now and it's the best. I love it and so do most guys. Second of all, it's tinder. I tried tinder out for a while three days before I deleted mine. I couldn't stand it. I thought it was useless and dumb. If I were you, I really wouldn't put much stock or faith into a site like that. Most of those girls, along with guys are just looking for hookups and one nighters. I would try something a little softer for you.
I have a tinder and I would consider myself a pretty down to earth girl. i do some of the things you listed above. Sometimes I'll forget to respond. I admit I very rarely message the guy first. I'm more traditional and think the guy should make the first mov. cbut anyways don't lose hope. I actually had a very good relationship develop from tinder.
Well, I've seen Tinder from a female friend's perspective, and said "nope" to the guys on there. Now I see the women... I was right to not even give it a chance. I know it's not just hook ups... but it seems to attract a certain type of person as well. It's not for me.
But some of these are funny (your situation isn't, but the profiles are).
I'm on Tinder for nothing serious, and to get some friends, cause to be honest, the majority of girls on Tinder are awful. Most of them are vain and just want the attention, that's why in their bio they just put their Instagram and nothing else, they just want followers. Others think they're the best with things like "If you're this and that, don't even dare swiping right" wtf b*tch, who the heck do you think you are? I get they don't like some things on men, but it's the way they say it.
I don't even bother reading girl's bios anymore, I just swipe right to every girl and then if we match I decide whether I like them or not. It saves me time. I've met pretty cool girls in there though, but the majority are just conceited little girls looking for attention.
Most men use tinder to reach something. A goal. A relationship or hookup etc. (Attractive) women on the other hand usually make fun of the app, because they have so much choice in men, so they only pick the top 2% best looking ones.
Dating in real life is better, because on tinder you only judge each other based on the pictures. In real life there's also body language, social status and of course most important: your conversation skills (for attracting women). It's so easy to ignore someone online, but in real life it's so weird if you ignore someone.
As someone who has had a lot of success on tinder- not hookups, dates! These are girls that aren't interested in actually meeting up. I would say at least half the girls on their, are just there for an ego boost, to flirt casually or to see what it is all about.
And the girls that you do match, but don't respond actually have a good reason. Almost every guy a girl swipes right to is a match, that is a dozen or so in just a few minutes. So you have to be sure to STAND OUT with your opener. They probably get dozens of 'how are you doings' in an hour of swiping!
I find the best openers are very interesting questions, unique to their bio or text. It shows you actually took the time to look at their profile, and made something funny/interesting.
I have had a dozen or so dates from tinder. Only a handful of those were actually enjoyable and got a second date from me. I actually met my last girlfriend on there, we dated for 9 months and only broke up because we were both moving away.
Tinder CAN work, you just have to be respectful and witty. I only get maybe 1/100 to match with me, and even then maybe 1/5 actually respond- and from there, it is all about finding even the smaller percentage of girls you actually hit off with via text and can make a date happen.
Meh it's not that odd compared to some i've seen, although I have to say I do hate when they say 'don't just say hey'... like wtf do you want me to say? Am I supposed to be amazing, quirky and original right off the bat? Being normal just doesn't cut it these days.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Another guy told me about this question! I was upset I didn't see it. Yo the first one isn't satanistic by the way, thinking what she thinks doesn't make her satanistic. Thinking that you're your own god, that is satanistic.
I never use this shitty app! And never will... And I hope I never meet a girl who used this stupid app and keeps shitty statuses or bio like that... I can tell the type of attitudes these women must be having just from their bio!!! LOl disgusting and sad..
Haha, so is all so funny and true. "Noooo, I'm not going to message first, that's the man's job!" So much entitlement...
I have to say though, when you do message, you do sort of have to be creative, women get bored sooooo easily, one wrong message and it's over. I usually try to be funny or say something about their interests, but some women on there are so boring already it's hard to make those conversations happen.
That age group is very flaky right now, it's hard to find something serious out of that, I wouldn't worry about wine right now, I would concentrate on making money in a career , when your older and more successful the women will be everywhere
i mean, what kind of movie did you expect for five dollars
