After I got my heart broken one too many times, I decided to join good ole Tinder. After days and weeks of swiping, I finally started chatting with a very handsome guy who just so happened to be from my hometown. Since we were miles and miles away from there, it was a nice change and made me feel at home. So when he asked if we could meet up that weekend, it was hard to say no.
This is what happens when you don’t listen to your friends people…take it from me! Dame Dessa had it all spelled out in Five Terrible Tinder Cliches to Avoid but did I listen when Mr. Ab-licious asked me out? Nooooooo. That would be too easy. It wasn’t enough that his profile clearly stated he was a workout-maniac, much unlike myself, but he proceeded to send me ab and nearly naked self photos on the days leading up to our big date. Did I pay attention to any of those red flags? Of course not.
Oh, Tinder! We all know and love it (sometimes) but those of us over here at Down 2 Date are tired of seeing some cliché, silly Tinder bios. If it doesn’t really tell us much about you, leave it off. Most people seem to have missed that memo and we’re here to help! We’ve combined our brains — and asked for outsider’s opinions — to come up with a list of all the bad Tinder bios we see regularly.
To say the last few months in my dating life have been adventurous would be a vast understatement. I’ve experienced the good, the bad and the ugly all in a short span thanks to the ever-popular online dating apps like Tinder and OkCupid. Though I’ve had some pretty decent luck lately – see this post – I’m learning not to put all my eggs in one basket. I guess you could say for the first time ever I’m not jumping head first into one crappy relationship after the next. I’m actually dating!
Here ye, here ye… I am here to proudly announce that I have finally had my first Tinder triumph! Amidst all of the creepy messages, epically failed dates and filtering through all the main pics gone horribly wrong that my girlfriends and I have had to endure I may have finally found a seemingly normal guy on Tinder.
While Dame Dessa and I love spilling all the juicy details about all the past, present and future boys in our lives, we want to hear from you! Have a funny story about a date gone terribly wrong? We want to hear about it. Are you an expert in a certain area of dating and feel like enlightening our readers? We want that, too! Have you met your very own Prince Charming and want to gush about your first date? You guessed it, we want it! Even if you have dirty jokes that are hilarious enough to catch our attention, what want those too! Basically we want to hear from you. After all, we wouldn’t be here if wasn’t for you – yes, you!
