Tinder is hardly ever a source of heartwarming stories that will restore people’s faith in humanity. In fact, the quick-swipe dating app is often a place wherein you’ll discover the worst in people – creepy unwanted comments, bizarre displays of aggression, it’s all there. If you’re looking for a reliably positive interaction, it’s probably best to look elsewhere.
But one particular profile has sparked outrage this weekend as one man set his three strict “rules” for his potential dates. Many have branded the man’s profile as “trash” – and some even see it as being emblematic of the issues with Tinder and other dating apps.
The profile’s “rules” aren’t the only thing that some have taken issue with, though. The rest of his profile information (plus his bizarre choice of photos) truly has to be seen to be believed, and the internet has offered some truly excellent responses. Keep reading to find out more!
First launched in 2012, Tinder revolutionized the dating scene.
It worked on a location-based search, finding available singles with the app in your immediate area. Tinder hugely streamlined the way we date.
The app allows you to build a pretty minimal profile.
It keeps the information that you can provide to a minimum and makes the process super visual. Based on whether someone likes what they see, they can swipe either right or left, yes or no.
The swiping process can be a little hypnotic.
Some have criticized the way that Tinder is set up as it makes dating feel more like a game than a way to initiate real human interaction.
When two people swipe right for each other, they’re set up as a match.
We imagine this would give us a major self-esteem boost. It’s probably all quite addictive.
