14 Male Archetypes You'll 100% Find On Tinder

No shame for the Tinder game. Tinder, for me, has become a fun place to pass the time, obtain some easy validation (don't judge), and notice some comically repetitive observations. Below is a list of 14 archetypes that every male Tinder user may (or may not) fall into featuring their typical overall aesthetic. I've also added a few noteworthy and authentic bios I've come across!

1. The Thirst Trap


-pics of face? Nope.

-pics of biceps? You bet.

-usually an array of various gym mirror selfies

Typical Bio: "Here for a good time, not a long time."

2. The Edgy Artist/Toxic Sad Boy


-throws memes into collection of pics to show that they too, like memes

-top artist is probably Tame Impala

-all their pictures are fun and quirky, just like them!

-bios are usually edgy, random, exotic, etc... just like them!

-pictures also include many serious, zoomed in mirror selfies

-the one I swipe on....

3. The Typical Stoner


-pictures of them smoking so you know it's real

Bios Include;

"whos down 2 smoke?"

"420 friendly"

"I smoke weed and am emotionally unavailable"

4. Your Close Friend!

The only person to SuperLike, then screenshot and expose their account by sending it to your group chat.

5. Your Ex's Best Friend

The person you swipe to see if you match. Also the person you swipe so you know they will see it and in turn, show your ex. All in all, time to use your peak pettiness devices.

6. Your Ex

To Swipe? Or to not Swipe? Either way, examine their profile and pictures. Keep an eye out for pictures of you two that he cropped you out of and now has on his Tinder.

7. "Intern at [Insert Finance Company Here]"


-uses their LinkedIn profile picture

-all photos include him in a suit


"6' on a good day"

-no bio

-only pics of him with girls (all different), beer, and parties

9. The Catfish


-no bio

-if you match, ask for their Instagram to confirm identity

-all pictures usually look like a completely different person

10. The Student Athlete Stuck In The Glory Days

11. Guys That Want One Thing & They Make It Clear


-lists out who they're attracted to in this order: looks then personality

Bios Include:

-"I'm trynna donate orgasms. I'm probably freakier than you."

-"Too young to settle down, let's have some fun."

-"It's Tinder, use it for its true purpose."

You know what I'm talking about.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
