For a while, Tinder was every lazy persons solution to dating and it was kind of fun. That was until we realised that giving people too many options mean that everyone on Tinder, likes to keep their options open; and that’s not even the only problem.
If all this sounds a little too familiar then you’ll probably agree with our personal reasons for choosing to delete Tinder… once and for all.
1. Because we are so bored of casual hook-ups
Tinder has made it ridiculously easy to find a companion for the night, as opposed to for life.You can’t get two sentences into a conversation without a “what are you wearing” or a “wanna have some fun?” Sure I want fun as much as the next girl. Preferably after a few weeks of dating and a couple of nice steaks.
2. Because we can’t remember the last conversation we had on Tinder which didn’t involve being asked for a “sexy picture”
Which should be no surprise to anyone because Tinder matches are pretty much based on how hot someone thinks your pictures are.
3. Because there’s a new dating app on the scene doesn’t involve swipe-related thumb cramp
It was only a matter of time, before someone came up with a smarter app for people who actually want to DATE.
One app on the scene which we kind of love is the Once dating app. Once uses human matchmakers to offer you one match per day, which is suited to you, based on essential information. You then have 24 hours to spark up a conversation and see if you are compatible.
The days of endless swiping are over and have been replaced with an app that does the hard work for you. All you have to do, is be your witty charming self.
4. Because Tinder has made everyone kind of shallow
We get it, looks are important, but believe it or not, there are other factors you should consider when trying to find a partner. Tinder’s philosophy seems to involve throwing as many random matches at you as possible and hope you find some of them hot.
5. Because too many options make everyone disposable
No one is required to make effort, because another match is just a couple of swipes away.
Tinder is kind of like putting a child in a doughnut factory and telling them that they can have as many doughnuts as they like. In that situation, any child would grab as many doughnuts as possible… but probably won’t really appreciate any of them. After all, why spend all your time on the Maple Bacon when you can take a bite then chase it with an original glazed.
