Funny dating rules
And I’ve had my fair share of frustration along the way (like the guy who seemed great but told me he was still in love with his ex).
But after using it for six months now, I think it’s totally possible to find a relationship on Tinder; in fact, I’ve seen it happen for two of my best friends.
I am a 24-year-old woman living in Brooklyn, working at a startup and writing in my free-time as a side hustle.
And I’m dating, which involves the perilous world of Tinder.
So there, I said it: Tinder is a great educational platform.
But don’t judge someone solely on their ability to text charmingly. I am a writer, and charmed by people who have a way with words. I hate the term “Facebook stalking” because it shouldn’t be pejorative: we all do it, so let’s own up. It’s a fine balance: get a sense of someone via text/Tinder before meeting, but don’t rely on your text dynamic for too long.But I ended up feeling discouraged about dating for no reason.In retrospect, I should have exchanged more messages with this person (instead of just chatting with him for 10 minutes) to get a sense of his interests.I like to make jokes, or assert some element of humor, immediately. If someone isn’t jiving with my sense of humor, then it’s not going to work. I ended up spending the entire date trying to devise an exit strategy.Sure, I had chatted long enough with the guy to make sure as best I could that he was safe and normal, and I was pleased that my experience wasn’t dangerous or detrimental.

But I gave it a shot because I wanted to meet someone, and, to be honest, all my single friends were using it.
