Tinder For the Win

Updated on July 29, 2016
In my opinion, online dating is brilliant. I grew up in a rural town where online dating just wasn't necessary because you knew mostly everyone in the area that was available. Once I moved to D.C. I literally knew nobody my own age. It was terrible. I'm a very social person and I had no one to share life with. I had always been skeptical of online dating and didn't think it was for me. A couple months after my move I got fed up with not knowing anyone. So I signed up and started swiping away (Tinder was my go to app). I'm not going to lie, initially I didn't think I would come across anyone that sparked my interest. I am very picky when it comes to men and relationships. But this didn't make me shy away from the process. That's exactly what online dating is, a process. It takes time to find what you are looking for. You may connect with someone and start chatting and think they are really great until they tell you something that just doesn't work for you. It sucks because you have to start the search all over again, but that's the great thing about online dating. You can weed out the people that don't interest you without even meeting them. You can message on the app or website, text, or even talk on the phone to get to know each other before meeting up. I'm a 20 something woman in this nation's capital and I'm not about to just go meet the guy that I matched with on Tinder. No no no. I chatted with each and every person that I matched with on the app for nearly a month before I even agreed to go out on a date. For me it was a safety thing. Now I am happy to tell everyone that joining an online dating app was probably one of the best decisions of my life. It allowed me to meet the best guy possible for me. I thank the Tinder Lords everyday for matching me up with my wonderful boyfriend. We've been a pair for a year and a half and recently moved in together. We are an online dating success story and I'm proud to say it - or scream it off a mountain top!

      Yes. The only people I know supporting dating websites allegedly have shares in those websites.

      Police in Australia regularly issue warnings about dating websites and advise people not to use them. The reason being the thousands of scams and dangers associated with them

      FYI: It is inappropriate for anyone to answer a question by linking directly to one's own hub as you have done here. That is against HP rules. It is referred to as being overly-promotional.
