Staying away from creeps on Tinder is something we all make sure to do. But it’s not just the creeps that need to be swiped left on. There are other types of Tinder guys that you seriously need to look out for. I’ve come up with a list of 5 types of Tinder guys that you need to absolutely stay away from. Unless douchebags are your thing (which they shouldn’t be!), then hopefully this list warns you about the guys that you need to avoid on Tinder.
1. The Single Selfie, Short Bio Guy
If you come across a profile and he’s only got one photo uploaded, let’s face it, he’s probably not the guy in the picture. He’ll more than likely give you the “I hate taking pictures of myself” excuse, but come on. It’s 2019. Everyone’s pretty vain these days especially if you’re on Tinder. Pair that with a short bio and it should be an instant swipe to the left. Even if he is the guy in the picture, if he doesn’t even take the time to fill out his online dating profile, what makes you think he’s looking for anything besides a random hook up? Hard pass.
2. The Gym Rat
Going to the gym all the time isn’t a bad thing, but when it comes to the gym rat type of Tinder guys, there’s something unbelievably douchey about all of them. If their profile consists of more than three gym photos or shirtless pics, then you can look forward to all of your conversations being about him. He’s also probably super shallow, too and will automatically comment on how your body looks. Gross.
3. The Mansplaining Man
There’s nothing worse than a man who thinks he knows everything. If you match with a guy and you’re trying to have an intellectual and mature conversation with him, but he keeps trying to explain to you how you’re wrong, UNMATCH NOW. Who needs a guy in their life that’s gonna be condescending and talk about things they don’t even really know about?
4. The Eager Beaver
It’s not always bad when a guy wants to automatically meet you in person. It might just be because he’s excited and wants to make sure you’re who you say you are. But the eager beavers that don’t know how to take things a step at a time are the ones you need to stay away from. These are the guys that message you 10 seconds after matching with you. You haven’t even exited the “It’s a match!” screen before you already have a message from him in your inbox. It’s like he stared at his phone all day waiting for a match. If he has nothing better to do than open Tinder as soon as he gets a notification, he obviously needs a life and you probably shouldn’t be a part of it.
5. The Lonely and Depressed Dude
If you match with a guy on Tinder and he automatically starts talking to you about how he’s so depressed, and how he’s been looking for the right girl to cure his sadness, ABORT MISSION. This is the type of Tinder guy that’s not looking for a girlfriend, he’s looking for a mommy to hold his hand and take care of him. Remember, fixing him is not your job! If he’s emotionally unstable when you meet him, he’s absolutely not ready for a relationship. Plus, why would you wanna bring your own energy down trying to console this dude? Give him the link to BetterHelp and unmatch him. Next!
