5 Things That Make Me Hate Tinder

Now being single sucks, and being me for the most part, I can't ever find love in real life so I just ended up getting on the one and only infamous, Tinder. While it helps me find cool people, it also makes me want to become a raging alcoholic and nothing usually does that to me. So this entire app must have something wrong with it, not the way it functions or anything but no: THE WAY PEOPLE ACT ON TINDER.

Here are five reasons why I hate Tinder:

1. Constant Hookups

Don't get me wrong, casual sex for some is a cool thing for them. You're probably thinking, why be on Tinder? It's only meant for hookups! For the most part, hopeless romantics like myself would just want to find someone who is cool and you can click with and most likely end up dating, so while we hate getting messages like "Wanna hook up?" or "Wanna take this d**k?" (Not even joking those were a couple messages I've gotten sent before). We still stay on the app or any other dating apps clinging onto the hope that one day it'll just work eventually.


I can't count how many times I was swiping through a person's Tinder profile and all they had was group pictures, GROUP PICTURES REALLY? I get like one or two, but all of them? I have no idea which guy or girl you are? Like are the one in the middle, left, or right? I can't even tell! Please if you're gonna get a dating app at least have one selfie of yourself, so we all can know who you are because it's really frustrating even if I do swipe left.

3. Unknown Trump Supporters

I'm just going to explain this in one sentence: If you support Trump, kindly just swipe left we aren't going to get along at all.

4. Bad Conversation Holders

I get it may be hard to know what to first say to someone, but honestly, if you can't keep an interesting conversation going then why do I even bother? I can't even count how many times, I had gotten: What are you up to? Look, I get it you want to see if I'm busy so we can hang out or whatever but honestly we should just get to know each other a little bit first before we meet. So keep a conversation please, ask me something other than what I'm doing. Please for the love a god, something else.


Dear 2017,

Can you please make a better dating app for people that don't want all of this happening to them?


The people who just want a cute person to talk about dogs with (or cats).

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

5 Couples Get Real About Canceling Their Dream Weddings Because Of COVID-19

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

Bobbie Hall

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
