Observations from my experiences with Tinder

2022.01.28 00:17 Extra-Boysenberry Observations from my experiences with Tinder

I’m 22M, who lives in the Southeastern US. I reside in a large touristy city. I decided to give Tinder a try for the first time. What was I using Tinder for? I was looking for whatever came my way. I wouldn’t mind a hookup, but if the right girl came along, I wouldn’t mind a relationship either.
I live on my own, didn’t go to college, and work in a male dominated industry. As far as my social circle goes, I’ve got maybe 3 good friends, and a few acquaintances. I’m not a god tier model, but above average looking. I don’t have the “chad” jawline, or muscles. I’m slim built at 150lbs.
My profile pictures honestly aren’t that good. Dating coaches would hate them. Too many selfies, some are “lower” quality. I have 2 “professional photos.” They consist of me doing my job as a pilot. My bio mentions how my only flex is being an extra on a Disney show back in the day.
I made my profile, and began swiping. You’ll definitely see a lot of girls you know. If I thought they were cute, I still swiped on them. It’s not that awkward. You’ll get an occasional bot here and there, but they’re quite obvious if you’re not a moron. I always see a lot of guys saying many profiles are girls just trying to promote their OnlyFans and sex work, but I saw very few of those girls. I swiped selectively to what I find attractive in women.
After one month of swiping, I got just under 500 matches. I’ll admit, it’s definitely an ego and validation boost. I matched with plenty of quality girls. How many of those girls messaged me first? I’d say probably 150. How many of those girls did I actually end up going on a date with? 12. How many of those girls did I hook up with? 5.
My go to first date was always ice cream and a conversation. If I felt some type of spark was created, I’d ask if the girl if she wanted to come home with me. Get the girl back to my place, turn on a movie, get some playful banter in, and make my move. It resulted in a smash every time. I always welcomed the girl to spend the night if she wanted.
How did I get to those 12 dates? I know some guys are gonna say first world problems, but it was honestly exhausting. Dating multiple women at once is not what they crack it up to be. Multiple texts, trying to make schedules work, etc. You’re having to really invest yourself into these girls. Some of these girls really got emotionally invested into me after one or two dates. I unfortunately had to break some hearts and pump the brakes with many of them. A few were more understanding than others.
I honestly thought all this work into messaging girls, setting up dates, was more of a burden than just going out and cold approaching. I’m not the biggest party person, but me and my friends would enjoy nightlife on the weekends and have tons of fun with random girls we just met. If we hit it off, I’d ask for her number and go from there. Real life Tinder is much more fun and easy.
Here are some random takeaways from my Tinder experience

  1. Girls will use old photos of themselves. I know guys probably do it too, but there were a couple times the girl was about 35 pounds heavier than what her photos depicted.
  2. Not all girls on Tinder are “easy” looking for a good time. So many guys think this is literally a hookup app. It can be, but I met a lot of wholesome girls on here who were looking for something serious.
  3. There is a ton of competition among males. You think you’re hitting it off well with this girl? Truth is, there’s probably another guy that’s more interesting, and better looking seducing her.
  4. Don’t get attached after one or two good dates. Girls can be very hot and cold when it comes to feelings. She has many options thanks to Tinder. Guys have options too, but not as many as girls. Just hope she really likes you, and she’ll stick around.
  5. Don’t buy anything from Tinder. You’ll enjoy the perks for a short while, but the algorithm will put you in the back so you’re tempted to buy another boost or Gold Membership and enjoy the perks again.
  6. A lot of people don’t really know what they’re looking for. Maybe you won’t date the girl, but you might have made a cool new friend.
  7. The shitty pick up lines work.
Overall, I found the app to have its pros and cons. It’s a good supplement to finding women. Too many guys rely on Tinder to find ways to meet new women. It’s a lot less effort to just go up to the cute girl at the dog park or night club in my opinion. Everyone will have their own opinion and experiences, but this was mine. What do you guys think about Tinder and online dating?

2022.01.28 00:17 Tiny_Duck_x Traumatised by coconut oil!!!

Guys you have to help me. About a month ago I put coconut oil in my hair and didn’t read any instructions before doing so, I just lathered it in on damp hair and left it to sit for HOURS! The entire evening and night after I ended up washing my hair about 8 times and using dry shampoo to get the oil out. BUT, it left my hair feeling smooth af.
So I tried again last night. I read some instructions. I washed my hair with shampoo, then while I was still in the shower I used the smallest amount of coconut oil and brushed it thought just the ends of my hair. I waited about 3 minutes and then washed my hair twice with shampoo and once with conditioner before I got out of the shower. AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED. I spend hours trying to wash my hair out but this time it was like it kept getting worse. So I used baking soda, shower gel and eventually an egg wash got it all out.
And again my hair feels amazing!!!!!!
So please, how can I use coconut oil in my hair without it sticking and making my hair greasy and waxy?!

2022.01.28 00:17 crepuscularvies The return of Boran Alp

I think episode 80 is the perfect time for Boran to come to his senses. Clearly, Konur heard Alemshah ordering Ferman to kill the Hatuns with the aid of Julia. Seeing as how Konur's character has been slowly improving these last episodes and his conversation with Boran, it seems likely that he will inform the Alp and together they will save the Hatuns and take Selcen somewhere safe (to Sogut as was portrayed in the trailer). This will give Boran the best opportunity to kill Julia, take Gonca's revenge and hopefully come to his senses. If this happens, he will become an invaluable asset to Osman as he can continue playing the deranged card and spy on Gunduz and Alemshah. I really hope this happens because I can't stand seeing Boran look so helpless when he was one of Osman's best Alps. Do you all think this is possible?

2022.01.28 00:17 Current_Ad1571 So I just found out that my childhood best friend that I grew up with in the cult for the first 20 years of my life…is married now.

I moved away from my hometown to a new city over 1k miles away 3 years ago. I moved, traveled and set up my new life alone. I honestly expected my best friend to follow me. I figured I needed to be the one to get out first and they would come soon after. The first 2 years we kept in normal contact and texted everyday like we always have. They have known since we were young teens that I wasn’t interested in being a witness. They got baptized at 18 and I never did. Suddenly in February of 2021 they just stopped responding to me. We didn’t have a fight. Nothing seemed wrong or off…just silence. I tried texting them a couple times since and still no answer. They still have their location turned on for me to see and I noticed for the last few months they were living in the next state over. Finally did some digging on social media through old mutual friends and found out that they started seeing someone in February of 2021 (also a witness) the same month they stopped responding to me. Got engaged in October and are now married. I’m still shocked. We spent our whole lives together, countless life events and vacations together. We were like siblings. Even my parents who are witnesses are confused. If my friend doesn’t want to talk to me or maintain a relationship it is what it is and I can’t really change that. I just can’t help, but feel worried that something bad is going to happen. I know they suffer from depression. I hope they don’t end up getting abused by the person they married. I hope they don’t get cut off from their family if they are ever df’d. We are still so young, only 22. I always imagined that we would both get out and continue being best friends out ‘in the world’. Living together and having a great time. I guess not. At least I’m doing what makes me happiest. That’s all I can ask for.

2022.01.28 00:17 DuckfuckingIsAmazing Neighbor is parking his car in my driveway and refuses to stop

For the last three weeks, one of my neighbors has been parking his Dodge Dart (pale green) in my driveway and trapping my own vehicle in my garage. I have repeatedly asked him to stop, but he says that he can't park in his own driveway because there's a big tree above it that he thinks will fall on his car and destroy it. Needless to say, being unable to get my car out of my garage is significantly detrimental to my life. I'm really not sure what to do in this situation. Should I call the cops? Sue him for tortoise interference? Any help would be appreciated.

2022.01.28 00:17 TotallyLibra Can you tell me the story of how you went from a slow runner to a fast runner?

Hi ya’ll. I’m feeling kind of down because I love running but I feel like I’m way too slow. I want to run with others but it seems everyone else can run 5,6,7,8 minute miles and I’m out here running 11,12,13 minute miles. I can go the distance (half marathon) I want, but my speed has always killed my confidence.
Can ya’ll send some encouraging stories my way about how you got fast?

2022.01.28 00:17 Caleebies Re: Astra (s7 spoilers)

Does anyone else feel like there's something missing between Behrad and Astra? I can't put my finger on it.
I think part of it is that Behrad still has not adjusted in my mind as a part of "the crew." Many of the new characters had a progression into the group as they developed relationships. All of that happened with Behrad without us seeing(beyond a brief glimpse in the 100th ep).
I really really want to love Behrad, but I loved him more as the brother zari1 wanted to save rather than the current Behrad.
Astra and Behrad... seem forced. It feels like what happens when you have two single characters and the writers are like, "well, I guess these two people will date because it's too much work introducing a new partner."
Gary and Gideon have good chemistry in how they almost mimic eachothers mannerisms. Sarah and Ava will always be the it-couple. I really liked Constantine and Zari2 with how they had similar narcissistic personalities(lol)
But Astra and Behrad? Something is missing. It doesn't click for me. They haven't really shown why Astra likes Behrad and why Behrad likes Astra, unless I missed it/forgot

2022.01.28 00:17 coolcoolwater How long after eating

How long after eating/overeating does dumping syndrome effect you? I am finding that I'm getting mild nausea every single evening lately. But it is hours after I eat, and I consider myself to be very careful about not overeating or eating too fast. Could this be light dumping syndrome? Or is it just common to get nausea around 5-6 weeks post op? I am following my diet closely although I am still not able to get enough protein in. Thoughts?
