I have no dating experience
I’ve meet some really great guys on Tinder, and then there are some who are terribly frightening.
Finding men on Tinder is like shopping in a vintage store: You have to sift through the piles to find the good stuff.
The Nuts and Bolts: Instead of having just a gallery of images, the app prompts you to choose a theme song to play during your photo slideshow.
You can tell a lot about a person by the images they choose, but even more by the one song they have them coincide with!
I’m not that religious, so I don’t use any of the other apps or sites aimed at Jewish singles, but they made it easy to categorize how religious you are so you’re not as likely to match with someone who has a vastly different lifestyle.
Instead of phone calls, there’s the cryptic text message; instead of maturely calling it quits, there’s ghosting (or worse, breaking up via Snapchat); and instead of blind dates, there is a veritable sea of dating apps to navigate. Want to know if our editors found what they were looking for?
The stories will make you laugh, make you cry, and perhaps inspire your own search for love.
We sit in the car for 20 to 30 minutes while I try to convince him to take me home. At the end of the day you may not meet The One, but you’ll have some stories to tell by trying it out.
He continues with the hand-rubbing thing, and after I finally give off enough signals, he literally stops talking to me—like complete silence—and drops me off. And though I rag on the experience of the many, many terrible men on Tinder, I must say there’s something special about finding a gem among the dirt.
