We all know the stories of Tinder and the many people who use it. It is a dating app known more for hook-ups than fairytale endings. When you think of Tinder, you automatically think of booty calls and one-night stands. At least, that’s what I thought Tinder was until I started using it about a week ago. I was expecting a lot of the guys on there to be shallow and douchey. I still hold that view but there are other types of guys you find on Tinder other than your usual asshole.
The Boring Boys
These are the guys that put no effort into what their first line is to you. They greet you with a simple hey or hi or its equivalent. There is no effort to be funny or even introduce themselves. You might have swiped right because of looks but looks can only get you so far. Unmatch.
The Lame Pick-Up Artist
Most pick-up lines are really bad but these guys are the worst at them. Some of them clearly don’t even know what a pick-up line is. If you’re bad at them, don’t attempt them. Or at least put some effort into it. Google is your best friend. Unmatch.
The Guys Who Should Just Stick To ‘Hey’
These are guys that say questionable things in an attempt to get a reaction. They may be similar to the boring boys but slightly worse. I really wonder if they ever get a response back from their weird greetings. I definitely wouldn’t respond to that. Unmatch.
These guys can be a hit or miss. Riddlers like to tell riddles or ask really intense questions. They are out of the box type questions but sometimes can be too difficult to answer. Some girls like riddles but some don’t. Choose wisely or risk being unmatched.
The Guys Who Jump The Gun
I’m sure these guys aren’t really serious but it’s funny how many guys actually use these kinds of lines. They are funny to me but other girls might not have the same sense of humour. Not even a reply back yet and you want to know if we’re going steady? Unmatch.
You see you have a new message and open it to find a novel. These are the guys that type wayyyyy too much as their first liner. I don’t need to start off reading your whole life story. If your text box looks too long, I might not even read it. Unmatch.
The 0-100 Real Quick
These guys start off with a nice compliment but it moves from 0 to 100 real quick. They may be sweet one second and a complete horndog the next. Or he could be nice until the minute you don’t reply to him and he does a complete 180 on you. Unmatch.
These are the guys that make Tinder worth while because they will boost your confidence when you’re having a bad day. These are the guys that shower you with compliments and boost your ego. Sometimes it’s just nice to have strangers tell you how pretty you are. Be careful though. Things could turn nasty if you don’t respond. It’s best to just screenshot the compliment and unmatch to avoid backlash.
The Slightly Inappropriate Ones
I’m not sure if I should be flattered or disturbed by this one. It’s probably best that you don’t expose to someone the first time you talk to them that they remind you of someone else, let alone a porn star. Unmatch.
The Funny Guys
These guys actually say some cute and funny things that make you chuckle. You think about responding to them but you probably won’t. Even if they are cute and funny, the chances of them being like that in real life is probably low so you unmatch to avoid disappointment.
The Slight Racist
The amount of guys that have suggested sushi to me is a little bit ridiculous. I’m not sure if they’re being slightly racist or everyone just loves sushi. I would like to believe the latter but my skepticism points to the former. I really do like sushi but I’m not sure if responding yes would perpetuate the racism.
The Stage Five Clinger
These guys send multiple messages within a really short period and expect a response promptly. Generally I’m good at responding via text to people but this is Tinder. I can’t be responding the second you send me a message. Why are you so obsessed with me? Unmatch.
The Guys Who Fail At Spelling and Grammar
Finally, we come to the bane of my existence. Guys that simply don’t know how to spell or use grammar correctly. When you don’t know the difference between there and their, this is a problem. Please check your messages before sending them. It really makes a difference. Being educated is sexy.
How many of these types of guys have you encountered on Tinder?
