Unmatch anyone the minute they say something weird or gross. So, for example, in my Tinder “profile,” I say that I am a feminist.
That way, any misogynistic people know that they should swipe left.
But what’s surprised me even more is that Tinder is an awesome tool to discover what you’re really looking for when it comes to love.
The app provides you an endless pool of people to date, which gives you an opportunity to explore how you communicate, what kinds of people you are attracted to and what your non-negotiables are. Sure, it’s kind of alienating and weird to swipe right or left on people’s faces — but if you recognize that it’s simply a part of the deal of dating at large, rather than some kind of evil behavior choice, you’ll be starting off on the right foot. Make reference to one of your non-negotiables — at the get-go.
So, while I haven’t met my dream-partner yet, I’ve still been pretty satisfied with my time on Tinder.
I’ve met interesting people (including a new friend who I talk to on the regular — platonically).
I am a 24-year-old woman living in Brooklyn, working at a startup and writing in my free-time as a side hustle.
Sure, I had chatted long enough with the guy to make sure as best I could that he was safe and normal, and I was pleased that my experience wasn’t dangerous or detrimental.In short: drop in a subtle reference to something you care about right at the get go as a litmus test for whether or not you and your Tinder match are “on the same page” ideologically and otherwise.5.
