The Top 5 Reasons Tinder Is Popular On College Campuses

Swipe left, swipe left, OOH, HOTTIE, SWIPE RIGHT, swipe left...

Tinder, the app that promises "friendships, dates, relationships, and everything in between." But, is that the real reason college students download this app? Well, maybe.

Here are the top FIVE reasons why Tinder is so popular on college campuses.

1. Tinder is pure entertainment.

For when you're sitting bored in a lecture, laying in bed before you fall asleep, or avoiding your homework after class, it's so easy to pull out your phone and have the ability to go through hundreds of people, deciding to swipe left or swipe right.

2. You get the ability to scope out the hotties in your area.

Especially the ones that go to school with you, right from your phone! You get the chance to see who is out there that you could go meet up with at a party, or just meet up for some subs at Jimmy John's.

3. Tinder is probably the fastest way to find someone you're attracted to to hook up with.

Whether people admit it or not, a lot of the people on Tinder are looking for someone to just meet and hook up with, nothing more. Especially being college kids, most are not looking for a deep relationship, just some fun. Tinder is an easy way to do this.

4. Tinder is a good way to meet people for parties.

Yep, you read that right. People use it to find parties to attend on the weekends. You can match with people at your school, and send them a quick message asking if they know of any parties going on that weekend. Now, this isn't the most common use of Tinder, but it is on the charts!

5. Lastly, Tinder is common for college kids because it's an easy way to meet people.

You swipe right, you get a match, and you start talking to someone you think is attractive and vice-versa! You talk, and eventually, you get to that point where you want to meet in person! Now, this could turn into something more than just a friendship, or it could stay a friendship, and there is nothing wrong with that! Just having friends outside of your circle of friends is important, and Tinder can help you do that!

If any of these options sound appealing to you, Tinder is not a weird app to have! So many people have it for at least one of the reasons above, so don't be hesitant to get it. And remember, swipe left means no, swipe right means yes. Good luck!

4. Listen to her.


Some days, it seems like girlfriends are constantly asking for more, and while they may be annoying, there are a few simple ways to stop her nagging and win her praise.

1. Pay attention to her.

I promise you, she is dropping hints every day. These may sound like "Awh, look at all the pretty flowers" or "I haven't been to Boba House in so long!"

2. Plan dates. 

Text her while she is at school or work, and tell her to be ready when you get home or by a certain time. Give her an idea of how dressed up she should be, but don't tell her where you're going. Then, take her to her favorite restaurant, one she's mentioned lately, or to a new movie she'd been looking forward to!

3. Pick up small gifts for her.

This doesn't have to be anything expensive, but next time you're at the grocery store pick up her favorite candy, or a small flower bouquet. Just something little that will show her you were thinking of her when you weren't together.

4. Listen to her. 

Ask about her day, and when she tells you what Sarah did at work, ask her the next day or a few days later if things got better. Take interest in her life and remind her occasionally refer back to old topics to prove you do listen.

5. Get her involved in your interests.

It doesn't all have to be about her! Ask her to watch the game with you, or to go out with you to hang with your friends. She wants to be just as involved in your life as she wants you to be involved in hers!

At the end of the day, every relationship is different. Take this advice as vaguely as needed, and learn your partner and what they expect from you! Happy dating! :)

7 Tips How You Can Be Just Like Nicole And Find Your Own Carlos

Don't we all wish for our own Prince Charming?


Don't we all wish for our own Prince Charming? One lucky lady at the University of Calgary in Canada got hers! Twitter has been blowing up with the story of Carlos Zetina, a University of Calgary student who met a woman named Nicole at a local bar on September sixth. After Carlos helped Nicole and her roommate get home safely, Carlos didn't get her last name and Nicole accidentally gave him the wrong number.

Carlos was distraught.

Carlos was so smitten with her, he sent a mass email to every Nicole, or variation of Nicole, at the University of Calgary – all 247 of them. The Nicoles united, formed a Facebook group and Nicole was found. Allegedly, Nicole gave Carlos the wrong number because she is an exchange student from Holland and hasn't memorized her new Canadian number yet. Carlos got Nicole's real number and they are going on a date next week, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile, while Nicole is so lucky to literally have a Prince Charming chasing after her, we're her chasing after men who don't give us the time of day. So, in order to meet your personal Prince Charming, I developed a few tips:

1. Don't go searching


Did Cinderella go to the ball with the intention of meeting the prince? No, she went to wear a pretty dress and to explore the castle. If so much of our time is spent consumed with trying to find someone, we may miss out on something great. Instead, just live your life and the right guy will show up at the right time. You don't need to be on the prowl for your next guy, just live life and eventually you will find each other. Finding someone shouldn't be like clothes shopping, it should be like taking a stroll in the park with friends – by being happy, living in the present and waiting for the right timing.

2. YOU know what YOU want, so don't settle for less or other people's opinions


Ultimately, the only person who knows what is best for you is you. Cinderella knew what she wanted, and she didn't listen to the evil stepmother and evil stepsisters when they tried to stop her from meeting the prince. Strive for someone who meets all of your expectations and qualifications, because ultimately, you know yourself better than anyone. Everyone deserves a love that makes them the happiest person on Earth, so don't let other people's opinion get in the way.

3. Use your past relationships to learn from, not bash


There is nothing I hate more than girls or boys who trash their ex. I know that sometimes breakups result in heartbreaks, but each relationship allows us to realize what we want and what we don't want. Don't think of your ex as an enemy, think of them as an opportunity to learn. When we examine them this way, we're able to grow as a person in such a better way than if we trash them.

4. In order to find a Prince Charming, YOU must be a Cinderella


How can you find a Prince Charming if you are an evil stepsister? Cinderella is kind, compassionate and loyal even in the worst of circumstances. She's someone we can all learn from. No one is perfect, but we can strive to be the best person we can always be. To get an amazing man, you should strive to be an amazing woman.

5. Find your own fairy godmother


Who would Cinderella be if she didn't have Gus, Jaq, and her fairy godmother? Find people who strive to make you the best person you can be and who are always there when you need them. This person can be a friend, a professor, your parents, your siblings or anyone that is a shoulder to lean on. Who knows, they may even lead you to your prince charming!

6. There's going to be roadblocks

i quit

In real life, we do have our own evil stepsisters and evil stepmothers. These people can bring us down and make us question who we are. They may block you from realizing who your prince charming is because of the negativity they bring, but don't let that damper your smile. Challenges in life just make us stronger. Remember, you've got this, princess!

7. He may be a prince, but he ain't perfect


Sometimes, Cinderella puts us in this fairytale-mindset where we think men should be perfect. News flash, men AND women are far from it. Instead of questioning if he's your prince because of a mistake or quality he has, realize that he will make mistakes and there will be hard times. Fairy dust doesn't really exist, so realize that bad things may happen and it's up to you and your significant other to get through it.
