Tinder

Who's on Tinder?

I downloaded this for the first time yesterday, and I'm actually surprised with the quantity of 'matches' that I get, I thought I would be completely ignored, lol.

Unfortunately most of guys are really boring, so I uninstalled in the same day.

And how about you guys? Do you have better luck? You already been on a date with someone from this app?

I had it for a couple of days but got rid of it. Grindr's far better for us gays IMO.

Grindr is too much sex oriented, ppl don't even talk there, the first thing they say is: 'send me your nude', LMFAO.

I was scared when I saw Grindr for the first time. :lol:

I wait until at least the third sentence before I demand nudes.

No one talks on Tinder. Grindr is crap.

Online dating is at its worst.

Llllolll... now we know who actually uses this : Miss Hilary Duff lllollll

Btw, i never have used such website/apps before, but wonder how they are doing it? Is it like FB? So whats the differnce with them? Lol guess the person at the side of the line might not just be the one who is pretending to be. Lol you talk and then you see each other at a coffee house or something?

I met myboyfriend on Tinder, we've been together for nearly 9 months now.

Here (for gays) Grindr is for sleezy chat and hook ups, Tinder is for dating. I went on a considerable amount more genuine dates through Tinder than I did with Grindr, I'd totally recommended it.

lol.

Basically this is how it works:

1. You have to have a Facebook account to link to, otherwise you can't use it
2. You make a profile of 1-5 photos using pre-existing photos from your Facebook account (for the most part, this stops people from using nudez/dikpiks like Grindr) and a 1-2 sentence description or tagline of yourself. Your profile also displays your age and how far away you are from each other person.
3. You set your preferences (after male/female, within x kilometres, between the age of y-z)
4. It'll do a search and throw people at you that it thinks you may be interested in, it also shows you if you have any mutual friends. You can make your decision right then on the first pic you see, or you can delve deeper, look at their other pics etc. Swipe left = rejected, swipe right = approved
5. If you and someone else both swipe right on each other, it notifies you and you are now able to chat via the app; messenger style.
6. You can arrange to catch up if you want (usually like a coffee shop, restaurant, bar, back alleyway).

I'm on and off with Tinder, I usually have it for a few weeks then realise nobody engages properly in conversation so delete it and try again later in the year. Had a few dates from it but they were boring.
