Plain Creepy

This app is encouraging kidnapping. It is not likely that you know whether or not the person you are dating is a criminal who wants to kidnap you. Just go meet and date someone in real life!

A good idea, though hasn't been very successful for me

First off, to the many people complaining about this app, guys, this is meant for adults. This is not an app for kids. It's not the app's fault that hebephiles (Yeah, there's a difference) use it. Anyway, the idea is good. You can either use this app to find love or just make new friends. In fact, if you specifically state you're just looking for friendship, weirdos surprisingly leave you alone. Honestly, I still can't completely wrap my head around that. However, while I give it a pass for the idea, I can't give it any higher because I have had no success with this app. I have liked and even super liked multiple people and have gotten no matches, despite the fact that I mainly like/super like those with the same interests as me. Is it really so much to ask for one person to respond? Granted, I've been having similar results with the more family friendly equivalent, Bumble. I'm starting to think I'm just unlucky when it comes to dating/friendship apps despite the fact that it's the exact opposite on forums and, heck, even real life.

Dangerous app

Tinder is really cool, when you dream to find your sweetheart.. however more often it is used not for such purposes. many partners use this app for cheating, but what is more awful, it can be used by violator, who has dirty plans in mind... Teens became the target of such people and it is scary... thanks god, some internet security apps have created special software http://smstrackers.com/tinder-tracking/, which allows parents to control such dating apps and make sure that everything is fine with their child. We should be really attentive today, everything which brings progress can have some dark sides.

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Hi, My daughter was as she called it BORED one day and thought well she is shy and does not really meet fellas at school like she would like and thought maybe she'd go on this site. Within a week she met a boy..he was on it because his friends were and thought he too would give it a try. Next thing you know she and he wanted to meet. Well our whole family said ok but we will meet him, and we will be in the next resturant over while you two have dinner. He's goes to a very good private school, plays sports, parents are educators, very smart, good looking, respectful, going to study in Spain during the Summer and really had all the right moves as far as we were concered about being with our dauther. We asked her how she met him and she said, Tinder. I said hummmmmmmmmmm went on the site and thought ok only one review which was odd...and why? He said he wanted to spend as much time with her as possible until he leaves on his trip. Always being respectful, they continue to snap chat. Long story short he wanted to see her again. We allowed it but again setting strong boundaries, can't go in his car, meet in a central location...all the good things a parent would do in this situation...however....when asked to get more personal...seems he was not available for that. He did not have a Facebook, Instagram or any way for her to really connect other than this very limiting interaction. When he realized that she was a good girl..told her that he had to break it off since he was a Senior and going to Spain soon. I was glad on one hand he told her but honestly I think he was so busy with such a high functioning level that they only way for him to connect was in a superficial way of this hook up. Why else would one go on it. Consequently our daughter is not to go on it anymore and focus on the good old fanshiond smile in the hall at school thing! Prom is not till next year so she does have some time...besides....the days of going to prom have changed so much....anyone can go! I am sad that this site breads this kind of thing at such young ages. They are exposed to so so much these days and as a parent so hard to be on the cutting edge of it all....and with no line leaders...WE ARE THE LINE LEADERS...and the fall out could be just horrible but really how will we know unless it is ten years from now and we look back. Scary times for sure but well..felt compelled to write this and let folks know that the cognitive skills can not possibly master what is available visually at such an early age or even stage!
