What does nothing serious just dating
If they want to lock things down and get more serious? On 12 September, Tinder turned five years old – having been released back in 2012 in hopes that it was going to change the dating world. It’s seen more than 10 billion matches, made up of people who’ve all spent at least minutes swiping left or right on people they found attractive and also not so attractive.And let me just say, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with online dating. You can think about what you’re saying before typing it out, a great alternative to endless word vomit on a first date. At least with Facebook if you share a connection with someone you can always find their profile to keep in touch – but if your Tinder match suddenly decides you’re not for them, you can simply be unmatched without explanation, and you may never find them on the app again.And ultimately, you can share things that perhaps in real-life, you’d be too afraid to unless you knew you were really going somewhere with them. And sadly, it may take your match a while to realise you’re not for them.Isn’t meeting people from Tinder based on a few photos and a few dodgy chat-up lines just as time-wasting as scouring the bar when on a night out with your best friends?At least you’ve got shots and a night’s worth of fun secured with the latter. It gives you a chance to be yourself with someone without worrying about them judging you there and then.
Which is fine, it’s normal – but isn’t it a bit of a waste of time?
They're talking about what post-grads they want to go to, or places they want to travel, or about their cousin's wedding next July. They wouldn't waste money on someone they don't care about.
And in all seriousness, if you don't know where a relationship is going or feel weird about it in any way, it's fine to go ahead and ask. Recent U of T grad with a penchant for small pups, cold ciders and extensive vocabularies.
I mean, how many of us have eventually fallen for people who were beforehand totally off our radars simply because it took us a while to realise just how wonderful they are?
Not only does it force you to make a swift judgement on a person, it also makes you feel pressured into competing with all of the other people on Tinder.
