Since its arrival, Tinder has been the talk of the town. From your hottie neighbor to that nerdy girl in your class, no one is untouched by its grace.
It is pretty much the saga of swipe right and left that makes and breaks your game on Tinder. And in between, you get the chance to explore and experiment. You get to meet the like-minded local singles, connect with people and form a relationship.
But when did anyone ever said that forming relationships are all hunky-dory on Tinder? My dear lovelies, the online dating app, Tinder has its benefits and disadvantages where storms are cooked up every single day. Where some get really lucky to find their soul mates, others struggle to even find themselves a decent date.
So let’s talk about the types of people you might have or can possibly meet on Tinder once you sign up for it.
The One Night Standers
Ok, we are not here to judge! But these are the kind of people who are only on tinder for random hookups. And they will be quite honest about it. They don’t care what you do in your life and probably wouldn’t even want to know about it. They are an ardent follower of the hit and quit game. So, don’t get too comfortable and attached because they may get out of the sight within the blink of an eye!
The Cheesy Flirt
Are you an athlete? Because you have been running on my mind all this while.
Is your dad a terrorist? Because you are a bomb?
Sound cheesy much? Eh…
There is a great possibility that you may meet such types of cheesy flirts on Tinder, who try to impress you with their unbearable cheesy pickup lines. Leave as soon as you sense their cheesiness and never look back again!
So you swiped them right on Tinder, it’s a match and you two decide to meet. One date in and they will start bugging you with constant texts and calls. Not replying is worst as they’ll just keep buzzing you. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, they won’t shy away from following you on every possible social media platform. If you happen to meet such clingers on Tinder, just run away and protect yourself.
It can be really weird to browse tinder and find someone of your parent’s or grandparent’s age. We are not passing any judgment here but someone who is in his 40’s or 50’s looking for a prospective partner should target for the people of their own age group and possibly switch from Tinder to some online dating service.
The Shy One
They are hot and single. It’s a match and you start chatting instantly. But that is the only progress you ever made with this match. They won’t ask you to meet or at least express the desire of it. Probably they are way too shy who won’t move past texting. It’s your call if you want to help them open up a bit and take things to another level. Otherwise, there are plenty more fish in the sea.
The Over Emotional One
Sometimes in search of a potential date, people start looking for a therapist they could rely on for emotional support. All they would want from you is to listen to their problems, fears, and failures. Well, don’t be their therapist, if you don’t want to be. Tell them in clear and subtle words that you are here to find a potential date and not be someone’s crying shoulder. You can always suggest them some professional help, in case they really need it.
The Over Confident
We have all met a few people on Tinder who believe they are a total package of good looks, amazing sense of humor, and hot body. At least, they like to think of themselves as a ten on ten person. While in reality, they are nowhere near five and that too when they try really hard. Just one message for these people. Calm down, mate and do some introspection rather than swiping on Tinder!
The One with No Picture
Now can someone please explain why would anyone want to swipe right on a no-face profile? Getting your game started on Tinder with no DP can be optimistic to the limit of foolishness. Still, if you get curious to solve the mystery behind their faceless profile, then swipe right at your own risk.
The One with Group Picture
If someone needs a group picture to trap people on Tinder, then sorry to disclose but that doesn’t work ever. Because if someone resorts to a group picture, then obviously they are the ugly or the least good-looking person in it. At least, that’s what they think of themselves. No solo picture. No swipe right. Next, please!
The Right One
Finally, you meet the most genuine person on Tinder whose profile is clear, crisp and says a lot about their personality. They know how to start and hold a conversation and play all the right cards. You might actually find yourself falling for them and your belief in Tinder is restored. There are cases when people actually met their partners on Tinder. So, if you really get a potential date on Tinder and choose to begin a relationship, then it’s a thumbs up from our end.
Tinder may not be the temple where you can actually find true love. But if played by the rules, it can be quite fun and you can meet some really nice, genuine people.
So Keep Swiping!
