    It's the new app for getting laid basically. It's for hooking up temporarily not commitment

    Not for guys that aren't attractive, presumably.

    That's not true. I've met lots of people not looking for hookups on tinder. But I guess if you swipe right on everyone you're bound to encounter sex crazed people and or freaks.

    I large proportion of girls on Tinder aren't looking just for hookups on there. I know by experience.

    ... Or maybe I have a completely amazing personality that girls can't get enough of! :P >_> <_<

    It's for desperate people, as with any dating site/app.

    Bear in mind that 95% of the people on here don't know what they're talking about...

    Wow there are a lot of negative replies on here. Allow me to be a little more positive lol. It is a dating/hookup app. Men seem to be a lot more negative about it due to it being like the real world. There are way more guys than girls. Your profile, pics, bio and stuff definitely have to be above average to get a match. This app is not going to allow you to date "up". However if you can get your profile good then you can be swimming in dates. You can literally get a new girl every other night. If you decide to join then I would personally recommend finding a site or community that will give you tips. You can really make your profile a lot better with minor improvement. I personally like Modernmack.com. He has some good articles on dating, tinder, texting. It is all for men and its pretty great to see a site that is dedicated to university level guys. He even recommends a good book that I like that is basically all about Tinder. Sooo that turned into a rant lol. Sorry about that too much coffee. Anyways good luck if you try to get on it.

    If you are really good at chatting up girls in clubs, then you should do well on it.
    Average looking guys might not find it worth the hassle.

    I give it 5 years before it's seen as something completely normal to date someone from the internet.

    Lots of people met, lots of relationships formed because of online dating platforms including apps like Tinder — and yes, a lot of people aren't looking for hookups on there. And I think it's great — we now have a wider selection of possible partners instead of meeting them at a wedding/university/bar. Which means, we have a greater chance of finding the perfect match. So why not?

    If you're male, be aware that there are a lot of female bugs/bots on there. Make sure the person you're talking to is a living, breathing human before getting comfy.

    If you're female, again, be aware that there are a lot of female bugs/bots on there. Their existence can affect you too because some guys on there aren't very good at distinguishing the humans from the bots and if you give off the tiniest telltale sign of being a bot, they'll likely report you It happened to me and I was banned from Tindr for 9 days while they reviewed my account. Protip: Say something a bot wouldn't say - like a personal observation about his bio/pics.

    EDIT: Aside from those pesky bots and overly suspicious guys, it's a really cool app, I think! Just exercise caution and remember your stranger danger training. Arrange to meet in a public place and don't give away too much personal information before meeting face to face.

    Because you can approach much more girls in far less time on Tinder and don't end up wasting time with non-prospects. It's a time-efficiency thing.

    It is terrible for minority males because women tend to be more discriminatory behind a screen.
