So you are contemplating downloading Tinder? In this guide I’ll be going through the pros and cons of tinder among my experience on the app the past few years.

TINDER PROS

QUICK SETUP

Assuming you have pictures ready to go, a Tinder profile can be created within minutes. All that’s needed is pictures, a bio, and connections to spotify and instagram. To create an account, a user has to login with either Facebook or a phone number.

This process should be pretty straightforward and take a maximum of 10-15 minutes.

EASY TO USE

Tinder makes it really easy to use the app. Similiar to the hot or not platform,  users swipe left or right depending on how attractive they feel the girl is. Super Likes are also available and free users have the option of using one per day.

If two users both swipe right, they match and the profiles go to a messaging stage. From there you can flirt and eventually lead to a date.

FUN MEETING PEOPLE

Probably the best reason to use Tinder, you can meet a lot of new people. These matches can either turn into dates,  hookups, relationships or friendships. You never know who you end up meeting.

The cool part about it is that you may have never met that person without the use of the app.

CAN SWIPE WHENEVER

Do you have some free time to kill at work, school, or are you bored? You can pull up Tinder and start swiping. The ease of the app allows you to swipe whenever and wherever you are.

USED AS A SUPPLEMENT TO HELP GAME

Since you haven’t met your matches outside the platform, Tinder is a great way to improve your text game. Messaging is the only way to be able to convert your matches to dates.

TINDER CONS

TAKES TIME

To  properly use the app,  you have to to be swiping daily and continuing to optimize your profile. This takes time away from your day when you could be going out meeting girls in person and improving your day and night game

FLAKEY/GHOST/STOOD UP

From past experiences, I’ve had bad luck with flakes, being ghosted and stood up. Some girls you’ll arrange a date with a few days in advanced, and you’ll never here back from them.  Others just never respond to messages.The worst though is being stood up. In fact, my first ever tinder date, I was stood up at a Sushi restaurant. It was awful and embarrassing.

JUDGEMENTAL

Some of the girls on the platform tend to be judgmental towards shirtless, gym, hunting, or fishing  pics. You’ll see bios mentioning that its an automatic left swipe. This shouldn’t matter, but it’s something you won’t experience in day game.

SLOW PROCESS

Converting a match into a date can sometime take over a week! When gaming in person, the process can be much quicker and efficient.

LIMITED SWIPES

Each free user has 100 right swipes per day. If you want to swipe right more than that, you must be a paid subscriber.

SCAMMERS AND VENHOES

Some of the girls on Tinder could care less about getting matches. All they want is thirsty guys to send them money over venmo. Its common to see “Venmo me and see what happens”

INSTAGRAM & SNAPCHAT FOLLOWERS

Another group of girls that don’t care about matching are the ones that want to boost their social media followings. They’ll often have their instagram and or Snap in their bios to get followers.

BOTS/CATFISH

While Tinder has done a better job recently  getting rid of bots, there are still a lot on the platform. The fake profiles try to scam you so be careful and make sure you are talking to a real person.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Download Tinder and use it as a supplement to meeting girls in person. Don’t become too reliant on the app, but use it as a tool to get dates and improve your text game.
