The “New to Dating” Guy
The guy who says he is getting back in the dating game has usually just gotten out of a pretty serious relationship. Which means, he isn’t afraid of commitment – or at least he wasn’t afraid. You’re going to have to do some digging early on because if he got too hurt, he may have trust issues. If he’s getting out of a relationship that lasted over a decade, he probably has no idea how to date a 30-something Goddess.
The Hookup Guy
This guy wants to hookup and only hookup. He is probably the kind of guy girls obsessed over when they were 20-somethings who didn’t know any better, but now he has to turn to Tinder for his ego boost. If you look at his profile and think that maybe you could change his mind eventually, well you can’t. If you really want to end your single days, then swipe left, FAST!
The Open Marriage Guy
I don’t really understand the whole concept of an open marriage, but I’ve also never been married. Honestly, this just seems like too much work for me.
The Guy You Kind of Know
It’s always awkward when you land on the profile of the guy you sat next to in US History in high school. Or your brother’s friend who you thought was happily married with two kids. And your ex-boyfriend? Well, that’s just plain depressing. Of course, if you are interested in this almost stranger or getting back with an ex, swipe right. Maybe the Tinder magic is all you needed.
The Nice Guy Who Will Ultimately FriendZone You
Okay, this one is probably way too personal. Two of my former Tinder flames eventually played the old “you’re a really good friend, but that’s all you are” card. Am I bitter? Oh, hell yes I am.
