What Girls & Guys Said
Not use a dating app and think that everything will work out smoothly. You'll get rejected, ignored and maybe even played with. Its a messy way of learning how people behave when they aren't looking for anything serious at all.
Use dating apps. Just dont.
The odds of finding a friend thats compatible to u and possibly dating material... Maybe even possibly relationship material... are slim to none. If u think you can find him or her, go ahead and try. But you've been warned. Its possible but very difficult.10
I tried several, never had a terrible experience. You have to be prepared to be ghosted, not take it personally. I also took anything said online with a pinch of salt, the real getting you know them wouldn't start till we met in person. It's amazing how much you learn in an hour over a drink/coffee that you wouldn't get from weeks of messages10
do have low expectations
do have a backup plan.
do take it all in good humor and learn about yourself and others
do not get too emotionally involved over texts... only after get to know the real person.
do not put yourself at risk20
Do: stay off of dating apps.
Don't: use dating apps.14
Do’s: be yourself, be aware, meet in public for the first time40
In my experience as an unremarkable guy, dating apps are like standing outside a supercar showroom drooling over vehicles you will never be able to afford.
The house (Tinder/OkCupid/Bumble/etc.) always wins.21
Always meet in a public place until you feel comfortable to go to a private place.30
Don't drop pics of you. It doesn't matter if that bish says she really like to see you without your shirt, all it takes one pic of you to destroy your... everything.10
Don’t waste time texting. Go meet them for coffee, lunch at the most.10
For a man, dating apps are a no in themselves.
Dating apps are a complete waste of time for men.
Women are so picky and bitchy that datig apps are impossible.22
Don’t use them. It’s much easier to meet real people IRL.10
Dont's: Datting apps.
I'm not 100% against them because they do work for certain people. But your chances are slim compared to going out and finding someone.0
I never go on them. 9 times out of 10 guys just want to sleep around so I’d be wasting my time on those10
DO go out and meet people
DONT be in a pathetic dating app like a bot a$$ person20
Don't give him addy
Don't talk about interests more so compatibility10
1. Do not use dating Apps.
2. Find their address, then visit them with flowers, proposing for marriage.1
dating apps are for sex, not relationships. so that's the first thing to know
second: fill out a profile and actually write something about yourself12
Why anyone from 18-30 would ever even need a dating app is just mind boggling to me.0
Get ready to be disappointed if you just started using dating apps. I never had a good experience on these sites. People just beg for sex0

From a mans perspective, here are the things I HATE about women's profiles, and immediately swipe right:
1) No pictures of you. You have your dog/cat. You have a drink. You have a sunset. But not you. Sorry, men are visual, we need pics. If you are hiding your face, what else are you hiding?
2) Nothing in the profile or "will fill in later" or "ask me". Sorry, the whole point about dating apps is to get an idea if we may fit. Then we chat or meet for a drink to explore that more. Then we go on a date. How fonking lazy do you have to be not to put anything in a profile. It doesn't have to be a book, just a few things.
3) No city listed where you live. Or something ignorant like "anywhere usa". Or the woman's favorite..."just ask". WHERE YOU LIVE IS ALMOST AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT YOU FONKING LOOK LIKE... I have done the LDR, I am not doing it again. You need to be within 10 miles of me or forgetabout it.
4) You don't say anything about yourself, but love to write what I am supposed to be.
She will have "you are over 6', you make over $100k a year, you have a 3 foot cock, you dress like such and such.". Fonk you, OK? You don't tell me what I am supposed to be, worry about yourself.
immediate right swipe for any of these.
If a woman doesn't have a picture of herself or doesn't have much in her profile, doesn't that mean she isn't serious about finding someone? She is there just to play games? Or do you think she is serious?
@Bob92220 exactly. If she can't take the time to put in the basic stuff, she isn't serious about dating or even just casual dating. She doesn't have to write a book. But the basic stuff is important. There are plenty of men that only care what she looks like. Most of those are going to be 20 somethings. At my age, I want to know at least basic likes, and where she lives.
