Types Of Men On Tinder
Start writing a post

For those who don't know anything about dating apps because they're happily single or happily taken, Tinder is described as the "dawn of the dating apocalypse"—it's an app where you swipe right or left to decide who you want to talk to based on looks and bio.

Sometimes you get lucky and have normal conversations, make friends, and end up having a good time on a few dates. Most of the time, however, you're stuck with creeps or weirdos, or even worse, lame conversations that waste your time. If you have ever matched with males on Tinder, you have definitely seen some of these types and had similar conversations.

1. The straightforward type

This one wastes no time with conversation - he knows what he wants and likes to keep it short and simple.

2. The dry one

Some people have no greeting, no creativity, and zero effort. These dry conversations also involve a simple "what's up" and a "nothing much" after which you two never speak again.

3. The basic pickup liner

He might make you smile a bit with a simple and cute pickup line, but you also know he just got it off the Internet.

4. The specific pickup liner

He tries a little harder with the pickup lines than the basic pickup liner by involving something he saw on your profile such as your name (I use Lana, hence the line above), bio, or pics.

5. The creative one

He tries to actually get to know you and doesn't sound boring.

6. The complimenter

These are always nice to receive, especially if they're sweet and harmless.

7. The basic one

Almost always involves a "hey" with some sort of an emoji. It's not a wrong way to start a conversation, but there are better ways.

8. The punny guy

Puns are awesome. Let's have more of them.

9. Annoying AF

If you're a quadruple texter on Tinder, you're annoying. If you don't get hints and try to keep the conversation going, you're annoying. If you tell me about your whole life story in one paragraph, you're annoying.

10. The emoji king

Are you a child? One should know the limit when it comes to using emojis. Also annoying.

11. Thinks he's the shit

He thinks he's better than you and that he can totally score with you. Nope, not with that attitude.

12. The Instagram ad

Stop advertising your social media. Let me at least get to know you first.

13. The name caller

Nope, not your baby girl, mami, honey, baby doll, baby, love, or anything in between.

14. The date maker

First of all, hello. Second of all, I need to feel your vibe before I consider going out with you.

15. The nudes begger

Aren't there other websites for this?

16. The GIFer

He is the Giver and you are the Receiver, but in this case what's passed along is a beautiful GIF, not memories. Sometimes you two don't say a single word to each other, just send moving clips.

17. The wedding planner

Too soon dude, too soon.

18. The one that's always "chilling"

Falls under the basic and the dry categories. Are you chilling on a rooftop, on the couch, watching TV, scrolling through IG? Give me something to work with here.

19. The uneducated one

If you've had any sort of education, you should know the difference between "you're" and "your," and "there," "their," and "they're." How many times can we go over this? Please.

20. The humorist

Roasts are always funny, also creative.

21. The sugar daddy

You wonder if he's a serial killer or an actual sugar daddy. Gotta pay for tuition somehow, right?

22. The traveler

So you're only in town for a week or so and you want to "get to know me." Mhm, I know where this one's going. Enjoy your stay and have a safe flight back.

23. The writer

Blah blah blah. Thanks for your time and attention... too much attention.

24. The silent one

When you finally get the courage to message someone first but they ignore you. Probably because you fell into your own basic category.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
