    I basically had the same experience with someone I was seeing last year. We agreed that we would just see each other, then one tipsy night I downloaded Tinder again to see if he had updated it at all and lo and behold, he had. I said to him that maybe we should just be friends to which he quickly responded with yes, and then posted on Facebook that he was in a relationship a couple of months later. Major banter.

    I liked some of your animated shows and have been a First Member for over a year but had never really paid attention to the rest of your shows until I was at RTX 2017 and Saw how much content you have and produce. I am so impressed and so hooked, you guys.

    I don't get tinder because you can uninstall the app without deleting your account...how does that work in terms of visibility to others?

    I find it odd that you guys automatically say to dump him. You say people don't use tinder for friends but I have seen it before. Not saying this is the case but you can't just assume like that with no prior knowledge of the person.

      I think of being visible on Tinder as having a relationship status of 'Available'

      It doesn't matter what you are using it for, how honest you are, it indicates a lack of commitment to the relationship

    I understand the concept of "communication is key" but I have never seen it work in practice.  I have always been a big talker, perhaps rambler even.  I have been told I over share, saying too much that the other person doesn't want to know I suppose.


    Of the two people I've dated it felt that me telling them about myself and trying to explain about me is what eventually led to the end.  I understand that is only two but it's all I have to look at for life experience.  I have a good deal of medical issues, stuff that makes my life rather complicated, and I never saw any reason to hide that.  They just seemed to get overwhelmed or not really understand what I had going on.


    Personal experience has taught me that relationships like that are not for me.  I am too messed up physically and mentally for most to handle.  To be clear that is not a statement of pity but fact, I don't feel sorry for myself and beyond that facet of life I don't let any of it hold me back.

    ok, so i dont agree at all with the first minute of the show, what about non-monogamous relationships? maybe the guy is just non-monogamous like myself but does not know how to comunicate it to people, or maybe he doesn't even know it yet. that doesn't mean he is a shit person that should be dumped, it sounds more like a communication issue. I hate when people jump to conclusions, just from one statement.

      its only a non-monogamous relationship if all the people in the relationship agree to a non-monogamous relationship. If the man is seeing/trying to see other people without informing the woman then that is cheating. 

    • Thehood_62

      i totally agree with that. cheating is not good if that is the style of relationship they have chosen to be in. my point is simply the fact that since they both sound young they neither may have discovered what non-monogamy is, or know that that is there thing. I just didn't like how stuff was assumed without more information given. I just hope next season that they are even more open to new ideas on relationships and people.

    I mean, I still have my tinder profile, but I have it in my bio that I'm in a relationship and just looking for friends because I don't know a lot of people in the area. I did this mainly because I don't know how to delete the profile and such.


    EDIT: I finally scrolled PAST the trademarks and such on the settings page and saw that there's the delete profile button at the bottom. At last!

      Also, I remember one day recently my girlfriend redownloaded it and we were glancing at who all had super liked her and such since we had become official and all. So I swiped right on a bunch of dudes that weren't bad looking, one of whom is a rocket scientist and a pilot. HE'S AN UNOFFICIAL ASTRONAUT! COME ON!

      So I've been telling her, "if you're gonna leave me, find the Asian pseudo-astronaut." She doesn't find it as funny as I do.

    My experience with Tinder is pretending you aren't ugly, and having to swipe through everyone to the left thinking "Why are there so many ugly people on here". I haven't matched and wanted to start talking with someone since the beginning of the year. I really have no reason to search an area more than 60 miles, and I've already essentially depleted that.

      If it wasn't obvious enough, I'm grouping myself with all the other uglies that are shooting out of their league. I don't know why I've not accepted my fate and settled.

    I'm glad they brought Kovic on the show, he has a unique personality and outlook on things. Once you get past the satire, he has something with substance to say. Yeah, he interrupted Barb a couple times, but he almost always did it to build off of something she was saying. 

    There's a sweetheart under that cuck exterior.

      He really provided some valuable differing outlooks as when playing devil's advocate in this matter. I feel like they often on this show are very quick to just go with the "dump that and move on with your life" responses to many questions.

    hey this was my question! thank you so much for answering!!! everything is good now, we talked and he showed me that it was gone from his phone before i had brought it up. Our relationship has gotten a lot more serious since i asked the question so i guess that's what got him to delete it. Anyways thank you so much for answering :)))
