World of online dating
We’ve heard loads of stories of how people have looked lovely on Tinder, but really weren’t their date’s cup of tea in person.Which is fine, it’s normal – but isn’t it a bit of a waste of time?Isn’t meeting people from Tinder based on a few photos and a few dodgy chat-up lines just as time-wasting as scouring the bar when on a night out with your best friends?At least you’ve got shots and a night’s worth of fun secured with the latter. It gives you a chance to be yourself with someone without worrying about them judging you there and then.
Cue the countless messages from guys matching with you only to offer d*ck pics and asking for sexual photos in return.Or they may post a picture when they were thinner, so they can get more attention in the beginning.“It's sad they don't realize that they aren't doing themselves any favors and they are actually hurting their own chances if they are really looking for a date or love and they are hurting other people.“ An act that we’ve probably all experienced or even been guilty of at some point, kittenfishing comes as the world of dating becomes more and more competitive.You must find the most flattering picture of yourself, a couple at least, in order not to be swiped left on because they found something better on the swipe before.Thinking of all the people who’ve swiped left on you can’t be good for your self-esteem. While some people decide to fill theirs with jokes or even flirty messages (which is often successful but let’s face it, not original in the slightest), others like to get real about their passions and their dreams to give potential daters some insight into the person they are.
