So much. I'm a strawberry floating catch.


I missed it Mr Winky sorry - read a bit harsher than intended.

This is a total stereotype so apologies in advance, but is it not the case that quite often as a gay man you could just match and message someone down the road for a quick ride and they'd be up for it half the time?

Met my then girlfriend through it, who looked OK on the app but was a knockout in real life (bragbrag). In Manchester the worst I had was that one of my dates was only slightly shorter than me (so about 6'1) which was oddly alarming at first, but she was still lovely.


You think there's a drop off after two months of staying in the same area? Weird.

I don't use Tinder - but it comes (/snicker) in ebs and flows normally on other apps.

Have you spruced up your profile at all recently? New pics/text?


No I haven't cause I've kind of been seeing at least one girl since around October, so didn't want to change my profile at all. :shifty:

Now I'm free of those shackles and been working out, that's set to change.

Seriously though, I used to get too many matches I could chat to quite a few girls and date the best ones. Not the same anymore! :-( I do genuinely think it's related to Tinder Gold. banana splits.

Yeah, by that point I'd ploughed through the majority of people on there. I use 'plough' there to mean 'browsed.' I'm not Falsey

I haven't used Tinder for a couple years, what with having a girlfriend and all. Now that we've broken up, which strawberry floating sucks and I'm still rather unhappy about it, I figured I'd give Tinder a go once again.

What the strawberry float has happened in two years? If it isn't pictures with those stupid filters on, it's girls with ridiculous eyebrows or pouting. :|

I once saw a girl on Tinder that had SIX different photos of herself with the dog snapchat filter on.

Good lord. If there's 2 things I hate on Tinder it's girls who have profile pictures with that filter, and girls who are way too into horses...

Anyways, I met my girlfriend on Match and we've been together 6 months now, I just helped her move flat and she gave me a key :-D

I never had anything in common with my Tinder dates apart from one, who was just a bit of a mess of a person really

I've got a great example. Just not sure if it's appropriate to put it on the internet.

It's already on the internet.

It's the ones with the doped tigers that get me.

It's the group photos I use to hate because it was always guaranteed to be the least attractive girl in the photo

What is it with ridiculous eye brows that have been pencilled on though?

How often do people here generally fight with their partners? Lately I feel like it’s every single day, she constantly says I don’t make enough effort and don’t show enough physical love despite the fact I feel like I’m hugging her fecking non-stop and make the effort to ask her if I can help with the essays she’s writing multiple times a day.

I’ve been reading 'The Truth' by Neil Strauss purely because I find him a very entertaining writer but one thing did resonate with me - that I sound like a love avoidant, whereas the girlfriend sounds the opposite, constantly in need of a level of attention that I feel i can’t provide.

Been in this relationship for a couple of years now and my memory's so bad that I honestly feel like I can’t remember life before it so don’t recall what's normal in a relationship. I do love her, though, and she makes me laugh. But breaking up has come up multiple times in the last few months and we keep shying away from it at the last second and I’m no longer sure that’s the correct thing to do.

Maybe I should show more attention and gooseberry fool though, although I do feel like I’m at the upper reaches of what I can provide as natural introvert the majority of the time - need time to recharge my batteries. Which I’ve told her, in words to that effect, but it doesn’t seem to resonate.
