However, I am also someone who enjoys dating and believes it's possible to date genuinely care about someone without falling madly in love with them.
In other words, Tinder is perfect for someone like me. There is an ego boost to swiping right on someone you find attractive, and learning that they find you attractive as well.
On the flip side, many of the men are there for hook-ups.
For every man seeking dating or romance on Tinder, there are probably 10 others seeking to hook-up, or to become friends with benefits.
The schedule makes intimacy difficult and the dating (and mating) dance tends to be, well, not very easy.
One man went from asking me about spelunking to suggesting we would make beautiful babies.
Needless to say, it was an abrupt shift in our conversation. They sit in my matches folder like unexplored potential. Maybe we'd have great chemistry – if only one of us made the next move. I'm usually called away by mothering, chores, and paid work.
Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …
they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but at a price.
