Tinder> Casual Sex, Serious Relationship or just fun?

Tinder is the dating app that came from nowhere and now is becoming one of the hottest dating properties around. If you’re single, you’re probably tried Tinder and your friends tell you to be on there. If your’re married and bored, you’re probably on there too (but trying to be discrete).

Here’s everything you need to know about the app that is buzzing


So, What Exactly is Tinder?

It’s an online dating app.

It’s more of a hook-up/casual sex app because it finds you potential matches based on how far they are from you.

How does Tinder work?

It’s really very simple and easy. It finds your location using GPS, then uses your Facebook information to create your profile. A Tinder profile is made up only of your first name, age, photos (of your choice) and any pages you’ve ‘liked’ on Facebook. Tinder then finds you potential matches near you (you can narrow it down by searching by age and distance) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If not, go left to ‘pass’. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – bingo.

It’s a match and you can start messaging.

So, what do we think? – It’s quick. You can be up and running in about a minute. – It’s easy. You ‘like’ people on whether you find them attractive at first glance. A little shallow, yes, but let’s face it, it’s what we all do on a night out anyway. – It’s easy to use on the run. The app’s designed for mobile users, and it shows. The layout’s clear and it’s simple to use. Perfect to fill minutes when you’re waiting for the bus.

Cons – We’ve found it’s rare for guys to actually start up a conversation once they’ve matched with you, leaving you with lots of matches and not much else. – It is still very casual sex-focussed. Many men are only on Tinder for a quick hook-up, so if it’s a serious relationship you’re after this app might not be for you. – …it’s hard to focus.

The game-style of Tinder means it’s really easy to keep playing and forget about that hottie you were messaging yesterday. If you’re serious about finding someone, you’ll need to stay focussed. If you are serious about dating and want to find love, its probably not for you. If you want a casual fling and have the time to work through the time wasters, then it could be worth a go.
