I met my Fiancé on Tinder!
A few years ago I used tinder and had a bunch of matches. I was not sure what I was looking for at the time. It’s used for one night stands, fwb, just friends, and relationships. I only talked to the matches who interested me. For some reason I was drawn to my (now) fiancé. After only a couple days of talking we decided to meet. He seemed to want something more serious, which kind of scared me at the time because I didn’t know if that’s what I wanted. However, we went on a few dates and really hit it off. Because Tinder is used for multiple things, YOU can choose what you’re looking for. If you’re not sure, see where it takes you. If someone’s creeping you out, unmatch. Simple. I don’t think I was looking for a relationship at the time but as it turned out, Tinder was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Without it, I would have never found the love of my life. Even if that’s not what you’re wanting, there’s so many other options, just let the people you match with know what you’re into. If they’re not into it too, that’s fine because there’s plenty of people using the app. Take the shot and download the app. You might be glad you did. If you do meet up with someone, leave your location on and let a friend or family member know where you’re going, their name, and send them a picture of the person you’re meeting. Doesn’t hurt to be safe. I thankfully never face to face met any weirdos on there.
Tinder is my ultimate wingman!
I have to be clear, I thought tinder didn’t work when it first came out, however it turns out it was user error. Since realizing my initial mistakes, I tried the app again and have met so many women from tinder that I cannot count. It’s pretty simple, DONT BE WEIRD OR BORING!!! Things got real when I started leaving the United States to travel. OMG it’s absurd how many matches I’ll have in a 24 hour period. I had good success using the app in America, but it’s definitely more difficult for men using the app in the USA because lots of competition. Tinder literally changed my life in unexpected and great ways. I can travel to any country and have my matches already figured out a week or so before my traveling. it’s also great to have a local show you around and be on a date at the same time while out of the country. I have met so many amazing women all over the world now. I NEVER write app reviews or reviews in general, but Tinder changed my life into an amazing adventure and I’m grateful. I will say this though: don’t be a cheap guy and use the free version of the app and then complain that it doesn’t work. Premium is definitely worth the monthly charge. You don’t have to swipe anymore on premium, and you can change your location to anywhere on earth, except maybe North Korea, lol. I’m totally fine with you guys not stepping up your game though, just means more for me. Good luck and have fun! Thanks Tinder so much!!!
Married the love of my life!
I honestly wasn’t sure what I was looking for when I joined Tinder. I had experienced other dating apps, and just wasn’t making any serious connections. And, then I met my husband, or eventually to be. We kicked off immediately and spent the entire night on FaceTime, getting to know each other. He left for training with the Marines, the next day. We wouldn’t speak again for more than a month; but when we did, it was like coming home. My husband and I have been together for four years now, approaching one year as a married couple. In that time, we’ve welcomed a beautiful baby girl, graduated college, purchased our first home, and kick started two extremely successful careers. I often catch myself wondering what our lives would look like, had we not connected that one day, that last day before he disappeared for an entire month. The timing couldn’t have been any more perfect, as cliche as that may be. I’m not one to credit an app for my life, but I will say, I’m thankful every day that I had the opportunity to meet the person I call my other half. That’s exactly what Tinder is - an opportunity. What you do with it, is up to you. With any dating app, there are unsuccessful stories; however, I want people to know, it doesn’t matter how or where you met, what matters is that it’s possible for your love to grow out of the mosh unexpectable of circumstances. And, so here we are.
Met my wife here😍
I’ve been using the app for a total of about 2 years. I had interesting experiences with tinder. Mostly good experiences. It actually made me come out of my shell because I got to talk to people with each one having a different lifestyle. I was on and off with tinder because I was either focused on one person (though never had a real relationship with the people I met on tinder) or I was busy in college. I set my settings to interested in women, and tbh at first not much of my matches messaged me. When I played around with the app, I set it to interested in men and women. It’s a little frustrating how the men were so comfortable to chat with, but the ladies didn’t seem that interested to have a chat. I wanted to meet women, not the men. So I tried to send out the first message to all of women I matched with and take the initiative just like the guys did. It’s a good thing I did that because later on after meeting one of the girls, she told me that she was a few days away from deleting her account since no one really messaged her. She saw my message and gave it a shot to reply. She told me she was skeptical at first because I had a few pictures with photography trademarks so she thought I was catfishing her. I did tell her later on that I modeled a little... So fast forward to 10 months later, we got married😍. We were both sooo close to not have met each other.
Locks you out and demands your phone #
I found the app hit and miss, one great match, but lots of weird scams and prostitution attempts - especially if you use it during odd hours lol but when they demanded my phone number non negotiably in order to log in and access my ongoing conversations, I simply stopped using it. This is an awful policy decision, and I'll hold out hope for a while that they'll reverse it. Tinder is not a company I'm sharing any more personal data with. Especially given their recent spotty history with data breaches! Sadly their interface doesn't allow you to delete your account without first giving your phone number to gain access to the settings, which is bizarre, and probably illegal. Update. I gave them my phone number. Now I can meet attractive people who don't actually talk to me, because they're just trying to grow their IG following. You may be wondering, why the 5 star rating from such a vocal critic? Well, I met the person of my dreams here, and it was fun while it lasted. Very hard to meet people in general, but I got lucky beyond anything I'd thought was possible. There is totally life after cancer. Also, there are very attractive people who are also kind-hearted. And who are looking for older, fat guys who smell bad and are unaccomplished. Who knew?
While it’s alright on a general level, there are many areas for improvement. For example, it would be even more effective if more optional filters/preferences could be applied in order to pinpoint who you’re trying to look for in a more efficient manner (Ex: height, personality, more “submissive” or “leading” in a relationship, etc.), therefore more traffic will be brought to the app due to how much more inclusive it would be to a larger audience, as well as how people will be able to find who they’re looking for much easier than before, making them more content with the service overall. Plus, additions like these would make the app more popular and more likely to be used by people, aka would bring more money in than before, so it’s boggling why something like this hasn’t been added yet, because it would benefit both the consumer AND the producer. In addition, something minor yet I still feel should be addressed, is an issue on the technical level. Sometimes the app will give a notification (if it even remembers to show it even with notifications turned on), but when I open the app to check, nothing is there. For example, let’s say someone sent me a message, I’ll open the app to check it, yet it doesn’t appear, causing me to have to reload the site until it does. Even though something like this is minor, it still is annoying to have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.
Met My Husband
I can’t sincerely say I didn’t expect much out of this app when I first downloaded it almost three years ago, I thought I’d have a few meaningless and empty conversations and inevitably end up deleting the app and resorting to more traditional ways of meeting someone. On the first day I download it, I matched with someone named Tyler. I’d just gotten out of a crazy and abusive relationship, and my self confidence was all but destroyed. So when I matched with a crazy attractive man I kind of pushed him off, expecting that he was only looking for a hook up. Two months down the road and he was still messaging me. One night I got a little tipsy so I started engaging further in conversation with him. He asked me on a date and it went amazing and I had more chemistry with him than I’d ever had with anyone. He’d just moved to GA from CA and had the same fire, drive, and passion that I have about numerous subjects. Days turned to months and now it’s been over two years. We have a four month old son, are getting married next month, and we own a home together. We’ve traveled and seen places we never even dreamed that we would be able to see together. I truly found my other half on tinder. Because of this app I have a beautiful son and an amazing fiancé.
Found a keeper!
I met my boyfriend through Tinder! We both actually weren’t taking the app seriously. I was just on it to kill time usually. I didn’t really meet anyone through the app in person. My boyfriend had actually watched a video with his friend where two guys switched Tinder accounts, so they got on and decided to do that for the fun of it. When I swiped right on my boyfriends account, it was actually his friend I first talked to! (he always jokes saying he catfished me) After just a short conversation, I added the real guy on snapchat. Anytime I got some guys snapchat, I never sent the first snap but this time I did! We ended up talking all night and then the next day he stopped by the coffee shop I was working at so we could meet. The day after that, we hung out and we have spent almost every day together since then! We’ve been dating for a year and a half now. I’m so thankful I came across him on this app. I had no idea anything like this would come from a dating app that usually isn’t taken seriously. He gave me his mom’s promise ring that his dad gave her. You know when people say you just know when you found the one? Well I know! I try to encourage people to give the app a shot. You never know who else could be on there!
Met my boyfriend on here surprisingly :I
Honestly I really didn’t entirely trust this app to begin with. I actually downloaded it as a joke to mess w people to be completely honest. One day while matching w these people I at least found attractive, I got a message from a guy I REALLY didn’t expect to say anything. When I looked at his bio he literally had the dumbest words plastered onto it. “Looking for friends ;-;” .. honestly I was gonna unmatch him there, but I decided to at least see what he was like. Well.. we ended up talking for hours.. and then hours became every day from that point on(haven’t broken the talking streak yet). Around 3 weeks later we became official without even having even met each other, and TRUST me we’re both fully aware that it was extremely early but I guess we both just knew we’d be good together :). Our one month anniversary is tomorrow and I’m still really surprised I met him on Tinder of all places. Surprisingly so, our personalities are almost identical in some ways and we think so in sync which actually kind of terrifies me. Yeah it’s still mega early but I guess I felt obligated to thank this app and see how far it goes in the future:>. So far we’ve been on 3 dates and kissed for the first time on the most recent one ;). Wish us luck!
Tinder is not tinder anymore
I know I’m stupid for doing it but if you ever spend money with this company expect it to go in the trash they wipe your account or glitch it away you pick the phrase they don’t respond to any customer service I had an issue more than six months ago that I have sent follow-up messages twice just to have proof of how ridiculously bad the service is and Apple denies all accountability no matter what happens even if they have already helped you with the same thing before And regardless of accountability I never really care about the few dollars I spent on it it’s more just frustrating to pay for something and it flat out not work I thought that’s why I had a receipt...... Anyways after you tell Apple four times in a row what I feel is common sense clear enough as clear was all I had tried to make the statements they will ignore that you’re not asking for a refund and they will just tell you you can’t have a refund well listen again maybe someone will I didn’t want refunds I just wanted apple to tell me how to make tender respond since they wouldn’t help me and kept telling me oh no you need to wait even longer I have been waiting for over half a year! That’s ridiculous! Apple knows it too that’s what I get though for not shopping face-to-face where people actually are concerned about getting slapped silly and for the record I tried to be extremely polite and understanding that’s just what this new world is now
I was catfished!!!!
So I matched with a relatively good looking girl on tinder. We started messaging each other and we started talking about really cool stuff. For a while things were fine and one day I asked for her Instagram just to see what type of of person she was but she replied with, “I don’t have social media.” I messaged my best friend about her and telling him that I met this girl over tinder and showed him a picture. He tells me all about her. Not only did she have Instagram, Snapchat, and all platforms of social media, but she also had a kid. I’m almost 20, don’t need no kid! Well I thought I would pass the whole lie to let her confess and I try to make a first date to finally see if she was who she said she was.(don’t worry I was planning to take a friend for backup had anything been sketchy). Sadly, she begins to make excuses for the two times I asked her, some might say 2 was too many times, but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt... well it’s been less than a day, obviously she unmatched with me before I got the chance which made it hard to report him or her... still don’t know who it was:( with this experience I think tinder should fix there reporting system so that even after you can report for occurrences like this because I’m willing to bet catfishes always unmatch very quick to keep their account up and running.
Extremely Poor Customer Service
I joined tinder and a week later I decided to pay to use the gold features. A few days later, my app got deleted and I was unable to sign on and use the features that I paid for. I wrote to customer service and they responded and asked me to send a screenshot of the error message. I sent it to them and I never heard back. I wrote them eight times after that. I have not received one response. I tried calling the number that they leave for customer service and I get a beeping sound as if it were a fax number. I wrote to them again. No response. They are receiving my emails, because I every time I write, I get an automated email stating that they have received my message and will get back to me as soon as possible. I finally rejoined and about a week later, I was booted again. I wrote them again stating that they’ve never responded to me, nor have I received the service that I paid for, and that I’ve written to them about eight times. I still have not received a response. Normally I would have just moved on and chalked it up to a very poor app and an extremely poor customer service, but I made connections and I wanted to speak to the people I was speaking with. I’m extremely upset and disappointed, not to mention out the Gold fee. I suggest you do not get on this site and make connections, only to have your account suddenly disappear and never get assistance nor a response from customer service.
It’s ok? I guess?
Over the past 5-6 months of being on the app, I’ve met only...1 friend. I’ve met a few people that only lasted for 3-5 days of talking and that’s it. I met one girl and we met in real life, but turned out she wasn’t really what I liked. I did want a friend with benefits, guy or girl it didn’t matter. But over these months, I didn’t get that. The app is great and I’m sure other people have been successful at finding hook ups, relationships or simple friends. But me? None. Without the subscription, you basically can swipe left or right and match with a person as well as creat your profile and chat with people. But with a subscription, you can ‘Super Like’ a person and see who ‘Liked’ you without you even swiping right or left on that person. But about 95% of the people I see on there are muscular, toned, beautiful, college, beer and weed loving guys. Girls? A bunch of cute skinny girls on there with nice bodies and an attractive face. I’ve seen some cute chunky people on there, and some in between. But majority are attractive people, which I know I have no chance of hooking up with. I’m not ugly, I know that for sure, but I’m sure no toned guy would go for a thick girl like me XD. Get the app and try it out, maybe you’ll have better results. But overall it’s an app I’ll spend on for about an hour and a way to pass the time.
Not worth the trouble.
I’ve had this app for about 1 year. Yeah I got the tinder Gold. Yes I’ve met 3 girls. None of them matched their profile so I moved on. Now, it’s like a dry season cause no one is answering. Whoever does answer, they’re like 4,000-7,000 miles away. I don’t mind a drive of up to 30 miles away but, 4,000? Why is my profile even reaching that far in the first place??? Second is the surges they’ve placed. I’d give a 5% success rate and that’s being generous. You can swipe as much as you want, you can use up all the stars. In the end of those surges, maybe 1-4 girls have seen your profile...out of 300 girls. Third is the price for the membership. NOT WORTH IT. With such a scam to get results? It’s a fake, a money grab, useless. You’re better off going to a bar and meeting someone there. Flirt with a waitress or talking with a female bar tender seems more amusing than using the app. Fourth are the scam girls of 2019. The Gold diggers. If they have a cash app, PayPal, Snapchat, chances are it’ll be a fake. They don’t talk to you, they only want your money. I’m sure there’s been at least one guy who’s given enough money to the girls to buy himself a corvette or even a 3 story house. The only upside? The photos are fun to see or your bored and you have nothing to do? Swipe time. Cause you know you’ll get no one but at least you can dream.
would give ZERO stars if I could
I usually NEVER leave reviews but today I will. I used to love this app. I used it all of the time. I’ve used it for years now. I went to log into my account today to be told that my account was banned for good for violating terms of service. I even went back and read their terms of service and I can say with 100% certainty that I have not violated any of them EVER in my time of using their app. When emailing Tinder about it, they refused to look into it or even tell me why I was banned. They simply told me I can never make another Tinder account and they will not appeal it. But they will not even give me an explanation as to WHY the banned me in the first place. I have never posted anything nude or cussed at or harassed people. The tinder “help email” just keeps repeating in different ways that I am banned. This is absolutely ridiculous. After doing some research online it’s not just me. There are several other people who have been banned for no reason, and refused an explanation. Tinder does not at all care about their customers or resolving issues with their app. I can only assume I’ve been banned because maybe somebody reported me, but there would have been no actual reason that they should have, such as harassment or nudity or vulgarity. If that is the case, it is ridiculous Tinder would ban an account over a report, and not check into it themselves, because I have done absolutely nothing wrong.
