What's your experience with Tinder ?

I've heard it's only for quick sex and women don't look for/expect a relationship there so I wonder if it's worth wasting time (having read in other threads how girls don't respond)

If I get it well, I log in, fill in some tests, then get the pictures, if there's a match the channel is open and I can chat with this person.

So from then on it's no different to any other dating portal, right ?

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

Women who only want sex and women who don't respond at all. Sounds like every other dating site to be honest...

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

I don't personally think I would have enjoyed Tinder very much. I did OKCupid, partly because it actually has my sexual orientation listed. I found my girlfriend of 5 months and my friend found her girlfriend of 4 years. So it seems to work for not straight women anyway. My straight friend still uses it and has had some dates but nothing terribly grand yet. Work in progress.

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

I mean, I'm not the greatest fire starter in the world...but I can get a fire going with enough tinder. I prefer a lighter, though I use flint and steel once in awhile just for the funs.

I also usually gather tinder up in the mountains, while my grandpa on my mom's side would prepare his tinder in advance. He'd actually make whole bundles to start fires and set them aside so he was always ready to go.

He'd have kits like the image below, with differing sizes going from small, up to bigger. Sure made things easy!

For the sake of interest it is worth trying it. You never know, you never know..

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

On tinder women can be extremely picky when looking for sex partners, for men it's a numbers game, like as many as you can and maybe you get lucky

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

I am annoyed by people in general. I have avoided Tinder as it comes across as a hook-up site to me. Finding a sexual partner is easy, finding a partner for an adult relationship is challenging. They have groups and sites for all sorts of sexual interests, but hardly anything for adulting, accountable, responsible, etc… (sounds like fetishes) in life.

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

When Tinder first came out it was definitely more geared towards random hookups, but as of the last time I looked at it, everybody at least claims that they're looking for long-term. I've met a couple cool people off Tinder, but for the most part, I think it's a lot of crap. I need more than 150 characters to describe who I am and what I'm looking for, so I tend to use OkCupid far more often. I like the fact that it is extremely comprehensive and I can usually tell whether someone is worth contacting or not based just on their profile. Ain't no way you can get that off of Tinder, not in 150 characters or less. That, and I think Tinder really highlights the extremely vain nature of American society, which to me is a good enough reason to avoid it.

Re: What's your experience with Tinder ?

Pretty good, I enjoy talking to a variety of different girls. It can be difficult to find someone who you can have a good convo/date with though.

Eh, might as well use backpage.com to meet 'singles' if you're on tinder for dating.


You do realize why people 'hookup' on Tinder, right?
