I gave up Tinder (and 4 other dating apps) for Lent. I am unbelievably proud of myself for doing this but I was a little too excited to download them again once Lent ended.
Yesterday morning, I downloaded Tinder again as I laid in bed with no electricity and began my swipe journey.
These are 5 things I learned since being back on Tinder in the past 24 hours
I am not one for taking risks.
I think it’s because my dad was a very anxious person and would get nervous at just the thought of me riding my bike to school.
I play it safe. It’s how I have always operated.
Grown-up dating sucks. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
It isn’t like when we liked someone we used to sit beside in one of our classes when the magic would just happen and then abra cadabra you were dating. This is total “meet a random guy, maybe go on a date or two, and see how it goes.”
However, in the few grown-up dates I have been on, I will say they taught me more about myself than I expected. Here is a list of things I learned from guys I have gone on dates with:
Single life is not a walk in the park. Especially not in -20-degree weather. So when an app like Tinder exists, you can’t help but window shop in the comfort of your warm bed. After months of using this app, I have come to the conclusion that I will never find the love of my life on Tinder. And here are just 10 reasons why:
A little while ago, I wrote a blog post about the different guys you see on Tinder. You can check that out here.
But that doesn’t even BEGIN to cover what I’ve seen… and for some things, you can’t unsee them.
So here we are, here is the second list of 10 guys you find on Tinder.
I’m not afraid to say that I am a girl in a committed relationship, yet I have the Tinder app. In fact, so does my boyfriend. I know people may think… that’s really weird. And it is. But we are also a weird couple who aren’t using it for its dating purposes. I call it window shopping.
Anyways, from what I can tell, there are (no offence) a lot of weirdos out there. These are but a small sample of the guys I have seen on Tinder.
