7 Reasons Why You Should Stay Away from Tinder ...


Tinder has quickly become a popular dating app, but this doesn’t mean that you should automatically hop on the bandwagon just because it’s a viral app; there are certain reasons why you should stay away from Tinder. Personally I don’t believe in intentionally finding love online, I am still an avid supporter of old school dating that involves meeting at a party, feeling the connection and talking the night away. Just think on these reasons why you should stay away from Tinder and give it a second thought!

Not Authentic

One of the main reasons why you should stay away from Tinder is because it is not an authentic type of dating. Technically speaking, you are forcing a connection with your own intentions already in mind! Truthfully, this is not very genuine. You shouldn’t be hunting for love and instead just let it happen, no matter how desperate you think you might be.



Haven’t we already learned from several Catfish stories just how easy it is to create a false persona online? The cute, sporty, successful and confident guy you meet online may be quite the opposite in real life. It is too easy to lie to others and yourself when you are in front of the computer screen. So be careful because you might be talking to someone who is saying everything you want to hear just for a chance to meet you.


Can Be Dangerous

While on the topic of impersonating someone you are not, I want to point out that communicating with someone who is not honest can be quite dangerous. You don’t know what these people are capable of and, in this day and age, the Internet is not a safe place. So stay away from Tinder meet-ups in general or at least have someone else with you when you decide to meet for the first time.


Tinder is a popular dating app, but it can be dangerous. It is easy to be misled by someone who is not honest and has malicious intentions. They may be using the app to scam people, steal their identities, or even worse, harm them in some way.

It is also important to be aware of the risks of meeting someone from Tinder in person. There have been numerous reports of people being robbed, assaulted, or even worse after meeting someone from the app. It is best to meet in a public place, or have someone else with you when you meet for the first time.

It is also important to be aware of the potential for predators on the app. Predators may be posing as someone else, or even as a minor, in order to gain access to vulnerable people. It is important to be aware of the warning signs of someone who may be a predator.

Additionally, it is important to be aware of the potential for catfishing. Catfishers are people who create fake profiles in order to deceive others into believing they are someone else. This can be a dangerous situation, as the person may be trying to gain access to personal information or even money.


Creep Factor

Some guys are huge creeps to girls in real life, so you can only imagine that the creep factor will be amped up to the nth degree when it comes to online dating. Plus no girl likes to feel like a piece of meat! So say ‘No!’ to Tinder to avoid such treatment from people you don’t even know.


You Should Get Back to Old School Dating

Oh, how I miss old school dating! It was so natural and exciting! There was none of the nonverbal communication you experience over the Internet; it was solely based on the in-person interaction and extra time spent with each other. And I think it’s time we bring it back!


Online Connection is Not Always Real

Just because you form a connection with someone online, that doesn’t mean that it will all be the same in real life. Online sparks are not always real because a lot of it is based on your own interpretation. So instead of getting your hopes up and then realizing that it was all a mistake, it is better to know what you are getting into by meeting someone in person from the start!


Tinder Hinders Real Life Interaction

Today our in-person interaction is already significantly lower than before, so we can’t afford to find partners in life through dating apps and websites. I am all for technological advancements but certain things must remain the same despite the changes made in our society, certain things like dating and meeting people in general!

Lots of individuals believe that their only way out of loneliness is online dating, but there is a time and a place for everything. Too many people are getting sucked into this Tinder craze, even teenagers who are not even of age yet! What are your thoughts on online dating using websites and apps like Tinder?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I met my boyfriend randomly online almost 3 years ago. It wasn't on a dating and and we weren't looking for anyone but like Jenna said when you know you know! I still say though how lucky I am to have met such an amazing person and not a creep or catfish. You still need to be careful!

I met my the love of my life on tinder! Just sayin...


I don't know who wrote this but it is clearly by someone who is in a relationship. Advices like "don't look for love" are not only annoying but also not realistic. Sitting at home is not going to help me find a guy. And yes, online dating, including Tinder, is part of our 2014 world. Plenty of people meet people online so don't judge something you don't know.

I met my boyfriend on Tinder. I got it to see what all the hope was about and he had it because one of his friends made it for him. Neither of us are the type to do online dating but yet we did and here we are. I do agree that there are people on tinder who are rude and gross but that doesn't mean that they all are that way. Don't be afraid to give it a chance, just be smart about it.

I totally agree that it's possible to find true love online but it doesn't hurt to be careful. There are a lot of women that are so trusting it could lead them into a dangerous relationship. Sorry, I reposted this. I didn't mean to offend anyone:(

this is honestly one of the dumbest things I have ever read. yes we should all get back to real life meeting people, but in this technology powered world people will NOT walk up to you anymore in introduce themselves. I talked a lot with men about that. they think women will think they are "creepy" for approaching them. I know more people with successful amazing relationships that started online.

I started using tinder as joke to pick on a friend of mine -not expecting anything really, I know must guys just use it to flirt and se how far they can go with you- But I got to meet this really nice guy whom I've been dating for a month now, we've only kissed, but I'm still unsure of how serious is he taking me because of the way we met.

Agree with duje. I'm not desperate, thank you very much.
