I recently started using Tinder, just out of curiosity because I hear about it all the time. I got a few matches and talked to several guys but i've never been a huge fan of "online dating" so I don't know if I should pursue anything with anyone on there. Has anyone used Tinder before ? Do you have any tips/advice?
What do you think of online dating?

I've never used Tinder, but I used POF for a bit. I met a guy and we dated for two years, hes the daddy of my son.. We aren't together anymore, but a lot of stuff happened... A couple of my girlfriends swear by it though and have been pestering me to use it.
I think online dating is neat in a sense.. But I would always suggest first dates being in a public place.. Not the whole Netflix and chill kinda thing lol I had one of my friends go with her on a date (obviously didn't tell the guy) and had me sit at another table in a coffee shop to make sure nothing happened.

Eons ago when I lived in the GTA, that's how I met people, made friends, and also dated. Heck, I even went to one guys wedding several years after we met (we met and didn't click romantically, but had so many common interests that we biked and hung out together as friends until I moved back to Ottawa).
I like it, as you can get a feel for a person before meeting them, so it takes away a lot of anxiety (at least on my end - I am pretty shy when meeting strangers/new people).
As long as you are smart about where you meet people, it's no different than meeting a stranger somewhere and going out on a first date afterwards.

Met my Fiancé off POF. We are very happy together
Turns out we went to high school in the same town in Newfoundland for 2 years, then met 10yrs later in Fort McMurray, AB.
Be safe when meeting that's all :)

There's different kind of guys in Tinder, some only are looking for easy sex, but there are other guys who are looking for something real.
Tinder is good, the only thing is that you have to be careful with the guys you talk.

With everything being online or an app these days. I think it's worth a try. If it doesn't work romantically, you could always take as you met a new friend.
Like what other chicks are saying, just be careful, meet at a public place until you get to know the person better. One thing I learned from all those "Lifetime" movies - DO NOT give out your address or have the guy pick you up before getting to know him better.
I met my husband online and we are happy together. We were both just trying the whole internet dating thing out and weren't really serious about it at the time.(we chatted as friends for a long time before we actually became romantic tho) But now we are married. Funny how things work. ;)

I find it really hard to meet guys and I used online dating multiple times over the years. I met my husband online (pof) and we clicked INSTANTLY. I fell so madly in love with him. It was a great way to meet ppl and as Crystal said, even if it doesn't work romantically it's a good way to meet friends. I am still friends with many of the guys I met online. I have never tried Tinder but I hear it's popular. Just meet in a safe public place. I would always talk for a long time before I agreed to meet anyone and that usually weeds out the creeps. And there are a LOT of them lurking online. So many married people cheating it makes me sick. My husband and I are now separated :( we were together for awhile and we split because I have a chronic medical condition that he is tired of dealing with. If I ever were to date again (very unlikely anywhere in my near future) I would use online dating again. Good luck my dear! I hope you meet someone great! Stay safe!

I was already in a serious relationship when Tinder got popular but alot of my good friends have used it to meet people. It's pretty hit or miss I think, but as long as your cautious about setting up dates, and only meet these people in safe, public locations. You'll be okay, so just have some fun!
