Like all dating apps and websites, Tinder is a hive of scum and creepery. It’s not uncommon to make a match with someone, and start receiving NSFW message or even pictures within seconds. If you get past the creeps and find someone who’s generally decent, you’re still on the Internet equivalent of a blind date, with uncomfortable pauses, botched jokes, and a palpable lack of chemistry. Basically, if humans could only find mates through Tinder, the future of our species would be doomed.
