I think it is like seeing a cute person in a bar or bookstore and is simply another medium to meet people.
Through my own Tinder experience, I learned that whatever standards you set, you can find the right Tinder match (and I met my last boyfriend on it after trying just about every site out there).I love that Tinder links to mutual Facebook friends.This makes it seem like meeting a friend of a friend (FOAF) at a party instead of an Internet vacuum of strangers, a big plus of Tinder over other sites. I know the Tinder “profiles” are only a few sentences, but as a writer, I know the power of words when I see them.(Maybe you missed the one where they're doing a headstand and bong at the same time.) This may be a given, but look for red flags: drinking, half-clothed shots, etc.
If you’re looking for love, though, and want to find more than a fling, a partner not just a rando, there are plenty of ways to tweak your Tinder game.From having a dating "study buddy" who helps you evaluate potential matches to making sure your profile is attracting the right people, here are some surprisingly effective Tinder methods to help you find love.
