Meeting New People

Image result for using tinder

Call me crazy, but I signed up for Tinder. Why you may ask? I’ve been here for six months and I have still yet to meet people. Maybe part of the problem is that I don’t take the initiative. It’s hard to make friends as an adult. I miss the relationships I had with my close friends in Kansas. I know I can’t mimic that here, but I can try my best.

I signed up several hours ago and swiped some potential people. I wasn’t expecting much since this was my first go, but within the past few minutes of me swiping right, I had a quite a bit of matches. It’s kind of fun and yet strangely addicting. I still don’t know how to feel about it, but I guess we’ll see where this goes. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. I can check that off my list. I finally sucked up the courage to do it. I seriously held my breath when I created the account.

I would really appreciate some tips or suggestions from people who have/had Tinder. I would like to hear your thoughts on how it went for you, how you initiated conversations and what you did when you went and met people. Wish me luck.

  4. We have the same ‘resolution’ I suppose, going out of my comfort zone and putting yourself out there, or in this case, Tinder. I wish you the best of luck. I’m only on it for the past 2 weeks and I probably don’t have as much matches as you do but here’s hoping that fate be kind to us and maybe get something beautiful out of it. PS I still don’t have the courage to answers messages, not that they’re plenty. 🙂

    • I did some research on it’s success and about the people who swipe right. About 50-60% who swipe right never respond but it never hurts to try. I’ve talked to three guys so far and they all have been a bore or looking for something like a hookup which I specifically state that i’m not into in my bio. I wish you luck. You may change your pictures and your bio to get more matches.

  5. Well, my experience with Tinder wasn’t so positive; I mostly received sexual requests from guys and that wasn’t my purpose on using the app. You can also try going out and doing things you like, that way you can meet up with someone who already shares a similar interest with you.

    • That would be fest if I had the time. I work two jobs and go to school full time so going out isn’t always an option. I have had some sexual favors asked on tinder but they are easy to get rid of. You just ignore it lol. And I actually have two dates planned from tinder. Some good can come out of it.
