Meet the Guys of Tinder. How accurate is this? 😉
See Part One of this List, Here:
6) The Christian Grey
For me, these profiles are always a mildly disturbing surprise. In the more extreme cases, Tinder takes them down when someone complains. In any case, this guy is into S & M. Some of his pictures will show what he wants to do to you, and his bio will tell you his safeword. Tattoos and piercings are common characteristics. If this is your kind of thing, swipe right. If not, take a hard pass.
7) The Young Professional
His Tinder profile picture is also his LinkedIn headshot. He’s a consultant, an entrepreneur, or an up-and-coming government staffer. It’s Ottawa, and these guys are a dime a dozen. Particularly if you’ve got your discovery range set to 25 +. If you meet up, you’ll probably go for pints at D’Arcy McGees. Dress code: Business casual.
8) The Wannabe Husband
His bio is paragraphs long. More Match.com than Tinder. “Looking for something serious. Don’t message me looking for a hookup.” Pictures with puppies and babies (“my cousin, not my kid”) are common. First message you’ll get from him? The emoji diamond ring, or couple holding hands. If you’re looking for warm fuzzies, he’s ready.
9) The Douchebag
His signature pose: A selfie where he’s lying on his back, one arm behind his head, smirking. He’ll call you babe, right away, repeatedly. And tell you your hot. Yes, “your.” My hot what? Possible date ideas including Netflix and chilling. Maybe without the Netflix. Prepare for unsolicited dick pics. I’ve learned to give this guy the immediate left swipe.
10) The Perfect Match
The most elusive kind of guy on Tinder. His pictures aren’t selfies, but they aren’t class pictures either. Maybe some shots of him playing baseball, or making an omelette. He’s good-looking in a believable way. He doesn’t take Tinder or himself too seriously, which he makes clear in his short bio. But he’s open-minded and wants to see what’s out there. His first message will compliment your smile, and ask how your day’s going. LOCK HIM DOWN
