This isn’t a sponsored post for Tinder but I felt, with all the bad rap the dating app gets, someone should tell the other side of the story. You know, the side that doesn’t include quick hookups and d-bag cameos.
They may not all lead to true love, but with millions of users on it a day, you can bet you’ll find entertainment (not the sleazy kind) in a Tinder date or two.
1. The guy who treated Tinder like a business
Some people take their online dating seriously and others just want to meet women in the most efficient way.
My friend Ryan actually pays a freelance writer to create his profile pictures, description and hires someone to manage his Tinder and Happn accounts. Like a business plan, he then briefs someone else to help manage his social account. The plan includes his objectives (to meet two women to date short term every month) and the type of women he prefers (age, occupation, sense of humour…).
There is a very rigorous pre-screening tests that take place before he will even consider a first date. His success rate so far? Three short flings and one relationship that lasted eight months.

2. The guy who had the ‘breast’ intentions
Blind dates can be a hit or miss, which is why Yen has a dating policy to filter our the duds. The general rule is that they need to have various images (no catfishing here) and pass a phone call and texting ‘tests’.
