The Boys of Tinder

You’ve already read about the time my Tinder date pulled out a gun, but that night was relatively late in my Tinder “career.” Before I even considered meeting anyone I met on the app, I flicked through a ton of guys and had conversations with a good handful. A lot of those people were really engaging–I’ve gotten some great movie/music/book/travel recommendations from the boys of Tinder–but I’ve also seen some hilariously terrible bios and fallen victim to some equally hilarious attempts at flirting.

Here’s a collection of some of the best (read: worst) things I’ve read on Tinder:

Clearly Philip is using Tinder to find an academic advisor.

Pro tip: deflect fruit innuendo by referencing 90s animated shows about babies.

Connor's just really endearing.

Eric is worried we wont know which Portland State University he plays puck for.

We were actually having a great conversation for two days before it died, and then Tyler decided to revive it.

I just wanted to ask him about skydiving, but Charles had something else in mind.

Basil uses Tinder to give life advice.

Not sure what Eric is trying to compare my honey to but apparently he has been asleep all winter.

Oh you know, just ruining conversations with misogyny.

Max’s merits include watching the Karate Kid and going to prom. If that won’t convince you to buy him alcohol or send him nudes, I don’t know what will.

This is Tinder, a bizarre, exciting, hilarious, confusing, alarming, and ridiculous grab bag of people. There’s truly nothing like it.

  1. I never went anywhere near Tindr, but then as a divorcee in his 30s I was never the target audience! Met my new girlfriend on OKCupid though so I would recommend using that instead :)

    • I’m not trying to seriously find anyone on Tinder, just for entertainment mostly. I would use OKCupid though if my goal was to actually online date! I’ve heard it’s pretty good.
