tinderAh Tinder…..Yes I have it and if you’re reading this, chances are you have it too.



As I’m browsing through, I seem to be swiping left about 90% of the time.  Here are some of the types of guys forcing me to do so:

  • The guy without a photo  
I thought that the need to have a photo on Tinder was obvious.  Is it not?  The whole App is based on photos and if you don’t know that you’re just silly.  Or if you do know that, then you must know you’re not capable of taking a good enough photo to upload.  I swipe left instantly.
  • The guy with a wedding ring

You know that selfie you took in the mirror? And you know your left hand? The one you used to take the photo?  Yeah, it still has a wedding ring on it.  Did you think the ladies on the other side wouldn’t notice? Or did you just forget you had it on?  I sit and think about what an idiot he is for a few minutes and wonder if his wife knows, then I swipe left.

  • The guy holding a baby  

I love kids don’t get me wrong, but the last thing some women want is to be a step mummy.  It might not even be your child, it could be your niece or nephew, or you could simply be trying to show us ladies that you’re good with children.  That’s sweet and all….but don’t.  It just confuses us.  Swipe left, too hard because Tinder is supposed to be easy.

  • The guy in all the group photos

There are at least 4 guys in all of your photos. I don’t have time to figure out which one is you. Although sometimes I will take a gander and choose which one in the group is the hottest, then I swipe left.

Once you’ve got a match it’s all lollipops and rainbows and you live happily ever after right? Wrong!

I couldn’t tell you how many guys I’ve had ‘like’ me, whom I’ve been excited to talk to, yet have never said a word to me!  Often it is really just a game to them, a competition between them and their mates as to who gets the highest number of matches.  Don’t waste our time gentleman.  Most of us women are looking for that special someone and we mean business!

When you do eventually have a conversation with a guy on Tinder it can be fun.  The messaging system is quick and easy to use and as long as the conversation is intellectually stimulating and the guy has a decent photo, you’re pretty much set.

Let the dating begin!

    Or when they have a photo with an absolute stunning girl on there arm. I don’t want to compete with that model!! Or the ex whose head you have cut out of the photo but you can still see her hair or arm wrapped around your waist!!
    Best tinder comment I ever saw from a guy describing tinder…”this app was described to me like that childhood game Pokemon, where people swipe right to collect them all (gotta catch them all Pokemon)… and never catchup!
