Dating dos and don”ts
<

Please forward this error screen to 208. I was hanging dating dos and don’ts with of my recently single buddies when he introduced me to a relatively new, totally awesome dating app. One of the best parts about Tinder is how simple it is.

Once you download the app, you log in via your Facebook account and the two synchronize to create your Tinder profile. The Tinder app downloads all the pictures you have uploaded to your Facebook account and allows you to choose five photos for your profile. Facebook, but you can edit that in Tinder and customize it to your liking. The other thing Tinder does is use the birthday you have in your Facebook account to display your age, so make sure that’s set correctly, otherwise you’ll be stuck with the wrong age on your Tinder profile. Once you’ve got your profile squared away, getting used to the app is easy. You go into settings and choose an age range for profiles you want to display. If two people happen to like each other, then you get a match and the ability to chat on the app’s instant message system.

Once you’ve chatted a bit and feel comfortable with each other, I recommend swapping phone numbers because the message system is wonky and sometimes unreliable. So if you’re thinking about trying out Tinder or looking for some Tinder tips, here are some recoemmended do’s and don’ts for users. Don’t worry about feeling a little awkward because you’ve never tried it before. This is a new thing for all of us. It’s going to be a little weird.

We’re real people with real Facebook accounts. Facebook connections before deciding to like or pass on someone. This might give you a good sense about what circles the other person runs in and could give you some helpful background. It also might help tell you whether to avoid that person. That doesn’t mean they’re all going to gossip about it.
