Dater X: Don’t Block The Box

Do you ever feel like everyone’s out to get you?  This week has been like that, at least when it comes to my dating life.  The city has been nothing but one big cockblock.  Er, clitblock.

First things first: I haven’t seen Israeli Tinder Guy again.  We exchanged a few friendly texts, mostly…

Dater X: One and Done

Lest you misinterpret the headline, allow me to reassure you that I am not, in fact, going anywhere.  But neither are my tepid attempts at Tindering.

Backing up a bit: Esquire showed up to our softball game yesterday to claim his glove and was unexpectedly flirty, both beforehand via text (asking for directio…

Be Transfixed By This Piece Of Meat Casually Swiping Through Tinder

It’s been a rough day. I’ve been so ANGRY about this Duggar story and completely flabbergasted by the hypocrisy of those defending Josh Duggar and his parents. I don’t know about you, but I need something silly, maybe even sexy, to distract myself and ease me into this blessed holiday weekend. Like this video of…

6 Things Successful Guys Do On Tinder

Women spend a lot of time on Tinder wading through men’s profiles consisting of shirtless mirror selfies and slang- and typo-laden About Me sections.

Tinder Can Be A Tool In Stopping Domestic Violence

A Florida domestic violence center called Women In Distress found an impactful way to reach out to women when the organization placed mini-PSAs in fake Tinder profiles. The profile photos start out as fairly innocuous images of attractive guys, but escalate with each swipe as the men reveal themselves to be violent. Any ladies who saw the profile…

Dealbreaker: I Got Called A Bitch On A Virtual First Date

For basically all of my adult life, I did not “date” in the conventional sense. I can count on one hand the number of times I went out to dinner with a near-stranger and suffered through the usual litany of “what do you do?”, “where are you from?”, “what flavor of toothpaste do you like…

Hilary Duff Might Share Her Tinder Dates On A Reality Show

When Hilary Duff joined Tinder earlier this week, she seems to have also flipped a cosmic switch (or, you know, tapped the help of her publicist) and is suddenly all over the internet, doing things like magically running into her “Lizzie McGuire” costars and releasing new music videos. Apparently she just can’t let go of that stroke…

Girl On Girl: On Tinder & Women Objectifying Other Women

I have 876 matches on Tinder. I love Tinder. I’ve met some of my favorite people via Tinder, but sometimes, Tinder feels cheap. That feeling creeps up on me when it’s late at night and I’ve just swiped left on 20 people. That feeling also creeps up on me when five people send me the…

15 Alternative Uses For Tinder (Besides Hooking Up)

When 27-year-old Susan needed someone to shovel her car out from the snow, she had a brilliant idea: she turned to Tinder. Her profile simply read, “Looking for someone to shovel out my car. Nothing complicated, no strings attached, just please shovel out my car.” Shockingly, in exchange for some coffee, it totally worked. Which…

Tinder’s Problems Translate From Dating To Trading

An analyst from Morgan Stanely released an analysis this week of Tinder’s parent company, IAC/InteractiveCorp, and was able, through business-speak, to put into words exactly the issues everyone has with Tinder but hasn’t quite been able to identify.

Ever embracing modernity, the New York Times published one hell of a wedding announcement this weekend, about a New York couple that found love the second time around. But for these 40-year-olds, they found their second marriages in an entirely millennial way: Tinder.

Woman Pretends To Be A Ghost On Tinder; Tinder Guys Are Not Deterred

Comedian Michelle Markowitz Demonstrates What Kind Of Gross Guys You’ll Meet On Tinder

Michelle Markowitz apparently had the same experience on Tinder that I had on OKCupid: Eventually, you begin to realize that not only are most of the potential matches exactly the same types of guys with the same types of baggage, they’re usually also incompatible (which is OK!), but often in a way that is borderline-if-not-definitely…

Bumble Is Just Like Tinder, But Women Have All The Power

Our prayers have been answered, ladies! Remember Whitney Wolfe, the former Tinder executive who claimed to be sexually harassed by the company’s CMO, and then was unfairly stripped of her co-founder title? Well it looks like Tinder messed with the wrong badass chick.

Last week, TechCrunch announced that Whitney, along with some other…

13 Things That Happen When You Send Taylor Swift Lyrics to Your Tinder Matches

Tinder is a battlefield. Swipe left or swipe right, and within seconds you can find yourself connected to your crush of the week, or a “nightmare dressed like a daydream.” Or worse. A ghost, aka matches that never message you first. It’s a Tinder epidemic, since guys do essentially swipe right “at everything,” it could…
