who met his boyfriend on Tinder, advised those swiping for lasting love to "know what you're looking for, don't be afraid to be a little picky, and have zero expectations." He also mentioned that "selfies were almost always a disqualifier". We've been on and off ever since but I'm on it again because I think he and I are officially done. Lack of attractive guys I guess. The week before that, I met five girls from tinder and hooked up with one. At least you're trying! I went on about five dates and I never felt like the guys were just trying to hook.
Whitney, 19, Retail, vICE: When did you start using Tinder? Not Much At All. I do find that guys have trouble believing I'm not looking for a hook-up though, but no one has really gotten angry about. If you have been reading my column for a while, you may have noticed that a common thread is people not knowing what they want, or coming across other people who cant articulate or communicate their desires, and the awkwardness that ensues. That's why I put no hook-ups. With all that stress, do you think Tinder's worth its weight for you? For so many of my single friends, Tinder has become a necessary evil. It just ends up making me feel disgusted and upset with myself. I haven't been "alone" in three years, so when I was, hooking up with someone was the way to goespecially with my close guy friends.
