I tried Tinder around September last year. I was bored and a friend of mine suggested I try it out since I don't really have time to meet and mingle because of my busy schedule. It was pretty easy to understand and fortunately, there was a pretty big percentage of good looking and interesting men to be found.
I've met a few guys from Tinder while most were all just virtual and should stay virtual. For those who are thinking of trying out Tinder, read on and decide after if Tinder is for you ... or not.
Tinderella Story # 1
I met him a month after we started talking everyday on Tinder then Viber. He was smart and funny. He was quirky and we just never ran out of things to discuss. He would message me EVERY SINGLE DAY.
So we met, hanged out, and had fun. Then he friendzoned me. Yes, I got friendzoned by the first guy I met on Tinder. So much for that story huh?
Tinderella Story # 2
We never met. He would often video call me on Viber and we'd talk. He was handsome, intellectual, and he was sweet. However, when made the mistake of flirting back, he suddenly became stupid. It was all "hugs" "kisse" and "cuddle." Seriously?!?!? A conversation cannot last long if those are the only words that you can use.
Tinderella Story # 3
There's a guy on Tinder who likes liking my moments. After, he would tell me I look good and that we should meet up soon. He has been saying this since October. It is now March.
Tinderella Story # 4
I've matched with a couple of foreigners and some of them thinks that if they gifted me with an expensive item, its okay for them to ask me to visit them at their hotels. I've asked for a Lear Jet, a boat as big as the Titanic, a palace, and $100M. So far, no one has delivered and so I haven't visited any hotel that they were staying at.
Tinderella Story # 5
I've met a couple of guys who were apparently only good for one dates. These are the frustrating ones because the date goes very well and then poof. They are gone. I call them the "one date wonders."
Thankfully, I don't have any real horror stories save for the # 1 which made me shed tears for a few weeks. I haven't been harassed and when someone makes a lewd comment, I simply UNMATCH. Would I recommend this to friends? I'd say, "proceed with caution. A lot of caution."
Who knows, maybe your tinderella story might end up with a Prince Charming ... remember though, he was born to be charming, not faithful.
