Tinder is full of options, possibilities, good experiences but also bad experiences. Online dating having been revolutionized, Tinder stands on top with its ease of use and wide user base. But there is a downside to that as well. When there are so many fish to choose from, you may stumble upon bad fish. Swim in the other direction girl, because these are men you need to avoid dating immediately.
While dating is entirely personal and subjective, there are some things worth watching out for. In your interactions, you may come across these red flags. Know that these are men you should avoid dating whether it is Tinder or anywhere else really.
Men On Tinder You Should Avoid Dating
Gone are the days when you used to walk up to a person nervously – with your heart throbbing out of its place – just to ask them if they’d go out with you for that movie. The little flame logo has completely changed the way in which people date, especially in a place like India. Tinder is booming like crazy! The land of ‘culture’, ‘tradition’, and curious neighbors has embraced the fiery red of online dating with new people signing up every day!
But does that have to be a bad thing? Of course not. Whether you’re a Bollywood geek who believes in ‘the one’ or just a woman who’d like to find someone compatible, the chances of the man popping out of thin air at a convenient time and place are not quite high. Ergo, Tinder.
Like all dating apps and websites, Tinder has its disadvantages. It comes with a set of no-no’s and boasts of a refined selection of creepy men. If you had a rupee for every time you encountered a creepy person on the streets, you’d probably be a billionaire. But it doesn’t have to be that way. While you can do little about the streets, keep your sheets creep-free with our detailed analysis of the kind of men unfit for your den:

1. A man with no face
You know what? Some elements are best left in Game of Thrones where they are admired, respected, and honored. Perhaps if, by the description, we meant dangerous assassins with sexy eyes who didn’t know what death meant, swiping right might have actually felt right.
Why? On Tinder, however, not having a profile picture raises many questions. Before you know it, texts testifying to his build keep spamming your inbox. We wouldn’t advise you to wait too long to cut him out. You need to play honest and fair in this game, even if it is online. Catfishing is something that happens often here and you do not want that unpleasant experience. Delete him, asap!
2. Picture or it didn’t happen
If you decide to use Tinder for sex chats and dirty talk, that’s absolutely fine! We wouldn’t want to deprive you of some good orgasms. But this heinous type of man is very common and preys on your inbox and your mind irrespective of your consent.
Why? We know you know that he is equipped with a penis and is perfectly capable of doing things with it. But for this victim of the existential crisis, the proof is of utmost importance. As a consequence, your inbox is flooded with images of his phallus that he sends to restore faith in his own manhood. Avoid dating this person at all costs.
3. The god, the cartoon, and the dog
You’re swiping across the faces of countless men. Some are handsome, and some seem bland. All of a sudden, the great Sai Baba looks you straight in the eyes. Even if you’ve never been in a situation like that before, we’re quite sure that you must’ve swiped across the face of a cartoon or of a pet.
Why? Don’t waste your time on someone who cannot be real with you. Tinder is not about finding onions and then peeling off their layers. While we wouldn’t advise you to head to that café hoping to share a cappuccino with Sai Baba, the possibility of dating some pixels might be a stretch. As for real dogs, let’s face it: those gorgeous canines are way out of our leagues.

4. Mr Pretentious
Apparently, he reads Tolstoy, hums Tchaikovsky, watches Tarkovsky, and is by no means an advocate of ‘coarse’ art. His preferred brand of wine takes practice to pronounce, and his smokes are high-end Cuban cigars. It’s with men like these, you feel like you are falling in love too fast but are actually just smitten with his external aura.
Why? We’re not claiming that such a person doesn’t exist, but we do advise that you do consider if he has a rank on the shady spectrum! If his convoluted texts make it evident that he has a thesaurus by his phone, he may bag a degree in deception, but not a date.
5. Digital Devdas
This dude is all about the high. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with smoking or drinking or posting pictures of one’s prized means of getting high on social media. But what do you do when all the guy’s pictures are of him blowing smoke rings in hookah bars and chugging whisky with friends?
If that’s your kind of person, by all means, go ahead! But not before ruling out the possibility that you may end up dating an alcoholic.
Why? There are way too many of them out there. If you think it’s hot, good for you. But don’t fall for it every time. If you receive a barrage of drunken, inappropriate texts which he later passes off as an effect of friendliness caused by the high, you, woman, tell him to scram and avoid dating him completely.
6. Too horny
Contrary to what this man may think, forming a match is not an invitation for sex. Casual sex is good but there is a way to go about it on Tinder. How can you be sure, you ask?
Why? If your conversations with this man are all about him asking you to come over to his place or letting him come over, that’s a clear sign. Dating is by no means an endeavor you can rush; and if he can’t keep his thing in his pants, you better chuck this one.
With these tips and tricks, we’re positive you’ll up your screening game on Tinder, and drive clear of the creepy contingent!
