I'm starting to find a pattern. Most of my posts have something to do with relationships or singleness. Obviously by the title, this post is no exception.
I'm kind of ashamed to admit this but yes, I've used Tinder on and off since December. I started using it as a way to kinda not think about my psycho ex and his anger issues. I kinda still use it now... but I have a MASSIVE issue with it and the whole concept of finding love on "Tinder."
For starters, I have no idea why I am even on Tinder.
Maybe it's because I want to meet new people and I've always had more guy friends than girlfriends or maybe it's because since all my girlfriends up and moved away from Oxford, I'm left with no one else to spend my time with, therefore, I no longer go out and have human interaction except for when I go to the gym or Kroger/Walmart. Believe me, my girlfriends make fun of me for all my almost daily grocery store trips.
Now let me tell you about Tinder basics or what it's known for just incase you're a martian and have no clue.
It's a "dating" site but really more like a "hookup" "one night stand" type of site... it's not even a site, it's an app.
A shitty app for starters.
I'm not going to get on Match.com or EHarmony so Tinder it is. But let me go ahead and say this now before I become misconstrued or judged, I am not, let me repeat, NOT a hookup girl. I am a hopeless romantic girl and being that type of girl surely doesn't fit in on Tinder.
I don't get it, don't guys ever get sick of being jerks, lying and hurting girls feelings?
I mean if only I could tell you my experiences on Tinder so far you'd be like wtf... I seriously want to go to the person who invented this app and slap them in the face, they'd truly deserve it for sucking as a human being.
I have to give credit where credit is due though, not every guy on there is a jerk. It may also be my area, a bunch of rich, self-intitled Ole Miss/Memphis pricks.
I cannot begin to tell you the amount of guys that get on Tinder with girlfriends. The best part is that Tinder connects to your Facebook friends, so if you're smart like me you can look up the guy your talking to (if you have mutual friends with him) by finding him on your mutual friends Facebook you can actually see what he really looks like and his status if it's single or not... I've seen my fair share of "in a relationship" when I search for them, and I don't just let them get away with it, I call them out. It feels good to let them know what a piece of crap they are. Hopefully they also feel like crap too instead of feeling invincible and fly.
Genius I know... so then why exactly am I on this app?
Oh right, I have no life... and it gives me some form of a life.
But yes, some guys like 75% of them have girlfriends... and they're on this app. Talk about trust these days. And it gets even worse, some of them are out of town for work and hook up with girls in the area and then go back home to their girlfriends as if nothing happened... how sick is that? I hope my brain gets washed because if my future boyfriend goes out of town for "work" I'm now going to be paranoid and go mentally insane due to Tinder and the lack of trust there is now.
Gee,,, thanks Tinder for making guys and society now shittier than it was before.
Now no one can trust anyone anymore and for good reason.
Obviously Tinder isn't in my love cards, so what's the point of keeping this unbearable app?
Nothing thats what. See ya Tinder.
