  2. Not too many people on Plenty of Whales are too familiar with what an "athletic" body type looks like, I'll tell you that much

  4. I think Tinder is supposed to be more for hookups than relationships

  5. using tinder have had a variety of experiences.

    have hooked up with girls with openers like 'i'd call heaven and tell em an angel's missing.. but im kinda hoping you're a slut" and "lets get drunk and make bad decisions"

    but also met my gf who has never done drugs, just graduated school, works full time, family oriented, great girl in general

  6. Male here. I met my amazing girlfriend on Tinder. I had to sift through a lot of crap, but there are genuinely awesome people on Tinder looking for long-term relationships.

    1. Hopefully you won't find anyone until you straighten your shit out.

    2. Not *that* naive. It's possible, just less likely. Lots of people find mates the old fashioned way but depends more on luck and how much you're willing to settle. Having a larger selection of people and being able to filter so easily makes things much more efficient and effective.

  9. Tinder is more like window shopping for people. OKC is alright from what I've experienced, they're pretty good at matching people up.

  10. tinder is what you make it. I've dated someone since january. we met through tinder and are very happy with our relationship.

    I'd argue dating sites/apps are the way to go, especially in engineering at UW where you're in the same class of ~100 people for the next five years. It's kinda tough to meet anyone outside of that group of 100 or so people and relationships with someone in your class as a generally bad idea, due to the end of the relationship likely ending up in a mutual awkward avoidance through the rest of your undergrad.
