Lowdown: Its ‘radar’ system obscures where you are and you have to ‘wink’ at users before they can view your profile.
A chat service means you don’t have to give out your number.
XOXO So, people are aware of Tinder's "hook-up" reputation, yet they are still willing to try the application hoping to connect with someone who is also looking for a serious relationship. There's plenty of discussion about the "seriousness" of mobile dating apps.
If someone makes you uncomfortable, un-match them, report the issue and move on.
They can then search for other IDs online or by calling a certain phone number dictated by the service.
So following the so-called rules, including listening to my friends when they tell me not to text someone, has not been my forte. Every group of 20-somethings will tell you something different, but from my research, these are the most common rules of dating and sex: You must not date anyone younger than you, or anyone who is “too old” for you.It links you up to singles who are up for sex in your postcode but remember, the more info you put on about yourself, the more you can see about others.Verdict: Popular with young professionals (we came across a mix of 20-something chefs, builders, students, musicians and lawyers) who aren’t shy when it comes to no strings sex.But, dismissing this app would be a mistake, and I can give you 50 million reasons in 196 countries worldwide to convince you. Over the past few months, I've used Tinder Plus (premium subscription / worldwide) to "informally research" Tinder users (women and men) across a wide age-range (25-50) all over the world. Here are examples copied from Tinder profiles in the United States: Not looking for a hook-up, but thanks for the thought . Afraid of matching and chatting with a married person? Oh, but wait, it also happens in bars, restaurants, at speed dating events, and through matchmaking services. Trust your instincts and make sure your partner is on the same page. Are these women hiding their true intentions about hooking-up? In fact, many find them superficial because of how simple they are. Whatever the case, Tinder is popular and has brought online dating to the masses.The fact is that no matter how in denial you are, these so-called rules exist.
