Is it shameful for a girl to have Tinder? Watch

    I'd like to download tinder just out of curiosity; I'm not really in to hooking up though and I have heard of some success stories from friends who have met their boyfriends on there. However, I know tinder users - particularly females - are often stigmatised for using it but I'm not sure if this just depends on the kind of image they portray in pictures.

    I know that some of my exes are on there and I worry that when I download it they'll see me as perhaps desperate in using a hook up app. Although I could say the same about them I just feel men can get away with using it.

    Thoughts? Is tinder really just for the desperate/ whoreish individual?

    I downloaded tinder out of boredom. After seeing the crap people put in their bios I deleted it. No one's ever had a serious relationship out of tinder

    I can assure you that there are going to be individuals in the world who will both judge you for having Tinder, and judge you for not having Tinder.

    Live your life, people gonna be salty every which way anyway.

    I was generalising, most guys are looking to hook up and most girls do it for a laugh

    As Paddy McGuinness would say, the power is in your hands.

    It doesn't/shouldn't matter what your exes think of you, if they were to even see you.

    My favourite bios were the girls going "I'm a ***** and I know it [some sort of senseless emoji here]"

    Let me know that I needed to swipe no, which was very good of them really.

    Who cares if people judge you? You can't expect people to never judge you - people will always judge you, from how you look, what your name is, the way you walk, talk, study, work, etc.

    So why spend time worrying about them?

    You want a guy's perspective? I wouldn't really mind if a girl had one, although I would get the impression that they weren't looking for something serious so I would be interested.
