Tinder comeback

Full disclosure, I stole the headline from a guy I had been chatting to who had be off Tinder for awhile, but decided to make a triumphant return.

It's been a little over three months since my last post so I thought I'd start 2017 off with a new one.

A had a look through my calendar and I only went on three dates in 2016 - what an abysmal number - especially when I had such a good 2015.

I joined Tinder (again) about four weeks ago after a colleague of mine was having such great success so I thought I'd give it ago.

I think the 'hook up' tag is not as evident as it used to be with Tinder, but there are plenty of guys who tell you exactly what they are on there for and what they are looking for.

I had one message from a guy that asked if he said enough nice things, would we have sex? Umm, no buddy. What part of the 'not interested in a hook up' in my profile was he confused about?

Another guy sent me a gif with Joey from Friends and the words 'how you doin'?'. I didn't even respond.

I have certainly had my eyes opened about a few things and here are a few of my observations.

I never knew 'roping' was a sexual thing, one guy only wanted to chat to women who were not vanilla and another said he'd buy a girl pizza and touch their butt.

I've seen my fair share of the obligatory selfies, complete with the toilet in the background.

I can't forget the guy in a beanie wearing a women's pink dressing gown, another guy is pictured with either his (young) partner, or daughter - I still don't know which it is, but it was creepy nonethless.

There was a couple who were looking for another woman, or couple to join them. Then there was a married guy keen for Friday lunchtime liaisons.

Another guy is trying to lean sexily over his motorbike (it's not working), while another simply has a picture of a bird and the words 'everything is a dildo if you're brave enough'.

What can I say. It's a tough ride wading through these profiles to hopefully find the needle in the haystack.
