I guess I will finally found my destiny in Tinder. Thanks for sharing your real experiences, I am blessed.I found my boyfriend of the last 3 years on Tinder. His cousin found his wife on Tinder. They're happily married with two kids 5 years later. The real tip is to FILL OUT that profile. Give people a real glimpse of not only who you are but what you are looking for in a partner. Yes, it has a hook up reputation and there is plenty of those seekers. I swiped left on anyone that didn't have anything for me to read. The more they filled out the better. The more they invested in telling me what they wanted, the more I knew (or felt) they were invested in finding something real. Hope this helps. Take care and be safe. I always told people when I was going on my first dates with people. Shared location. Safety is important.
