Tinder – You want to be a STEAK!

The problem with dating is that there are too many options and too much choice. When did dating become so complicated? With Tinder, there is too much focus placed on looks rather than getting to know a person. Obviously you need to be attracted to the other person initially but if they are unable to mentally stimulate you after the first date then that’s a no go. Looks will only get you so far but they’ll quickly fade if the lights are on but nobody’s home.

The issue with meeting someone on Tinder is that you can’t guarantee that they’re not seeing 3 other people at the same time. But it’s also not really any of your business because you knew what you were signing up for. This will only bother you if you start to like the person. So if you’ve had more than 3 dates with an individual, when is the point that you make sure they’re not seeing other people without sounding like you’re a bit too keen. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you’re the only one they’re seeing because most of the time, you’re not. Basically you want to be their steak, you don’t want to be a side salad when you’re dating someone, a leafy limp side-salad. Be the steak. If you act like a salad, they’ll treat you like one.
