Tinder taglines deciphered
Tinder. Once a taboo and now still actively used by singles. Admit it! Being single (in Dubai) means either finding a date in a club (fat chance of finding a normal guy) or using Happn, Bumble, or Tinder (0.001% chance, meaning you have to go through 100 profiles before you find a reasonably normal one. Only to find out he is a tourist).
Cringeworthy as it is, it’s also fun and my friends and I even have an app where we share all the amazing ‘fish in the sea’ in Dubai. Including guys with selfies with a big fish.
Strolling through the profiles, I’ve deciphered many of them and boiled the taglines down to their actual meaning:
|Tinder tagline||True meaning|
|Director/owner/boss||Needs to overcompensate for something|
|Looking for friends||Doesn’t feel guilty about playing multiple women “because I told her in advance I only wanted to be friends!”|
|World traveller, have lived in many places||Has a fear of commitment and can’t stay in one place for too long|
|New to Dubai!||NO relationship material as he will spend the first year actively hooking up|
|Love life||Has no idea what he’s doing in life, little ambition|
|Open-minded||Already has 3 wives and is looking for a mistress|
|Gentleman||Sends a nice text after dumping you, instead of ghosting|
|Sapiosexual||Is really into stewardesses but won’t admit it|
|No escorts or hookups please!||Is a pimp himself|
|Looking for a real girl||Is actually into the fake ones with duckface but doesn’t want his friends to know|
You know it’s true! Ladies, the next time you see any of the above taglines, think twice before swiping right 🙂
