The challenge for women is usually getting a man to commit after sex.
If they “like” you back then you can choose to message each other and possibly meet up.
Most girls who use the app report that if you’re fairly good looking, you can pretty much sit back and wait for the likes to roll in. As I scrolled through the never-ending list of possible matches the app has compiled, I must say that I only stopped at the ones that shared some mutual friends with me.
The logic is it seems “less dangerous” and that the possibility of someone being a weirdo who shared the same friends as me isn’t as high.
There’s very little on who you are and the matches are primarily focused on physical attraction.
Eli Epstein candidly admitted that “after a casual date or two, the expectation is that you’re going to be laid.” Most of Eli’s male friends have also disclosed that Tinder is great if you’re into girls in bikinis and sexually suggestive girly poses.
“People dating online, particularly women, are finding themselves at a higher risk for sexual assaults, violent crime and fraud.
But the crimes are under-reported and we want to hear from victims so they can access resources and help prevent others from being victimized.” The new online campaign — — is designed to help online daters increase personal safety.
I must admit that perusing through photos of my “matches” was certainly fun (and addictive) but I won’t be staying on the app for long.
