With the arrival of Tinder, many thought that God had answered their prayers. Women thought that the man of their dreams was now only a click away; men thought unlimited casual sex was only a click away. Enough time has now passed and the dust has now settled so we can say that while Tinder is certainly a great help to many people on the dating front, it is not the answer for everyone. So what do you do when Tinder isn’t the Holy Grail you thought it was? Where will you meet the love of your life if not on your phone screen? Here we take a look at what to do when Tinder isn’t working?

If there is one thing that I have learned in Ireland it’s that the easiest way to meet someone is to go out to the pub/nightclub. Sadly we live in a country where if you go out and get smashed enough you will probably have a much better chance of meeting a future partner than doing anything else. It’s not the only way though and probably not the best either especially for your liver. It’s fair to say that with summer now just around the corner there couldn’t be a better time to get off your Smartphone and get out and about in search of Mr. or Mrs Right. There are numerous events to cover all different interests up and down the country this year and they may be more enjoyable and productive for you than a trip down your local boozer.

One of the main things that you need to figure out before deciding where to go looking for your next date is what type of person you would like to meet. If you go to an event or venue that is in line with your interests then the chances are that whoever you meet will have similar interests and you will have a natural starting point for conversation. This will save you from awkward conversations and will prevent you from having to use one of your pathetic chat up lines, and believe me they are pathetic. If you are sporty go to sports events/gyms/walks/runs or even marathons if you are a psycho. If you are into music go to gigs, whatever you are interested in then that should be your starting point. The social side of these events are half the reason people attend anyway. It will also help you weed out the people who compensate for their lack of personality with a never-ending dedication to making their online profiles seem like they are living lives like Vinnie Chase from Entourage. These people sicken me and need to be avoided at all costs. They are sneaky little creatures though so are next to impossible to spot online because of stolen quotes and Google intellect but face to face they will be identifiable by the blank stares on their faces when you try to engage them in meaningful conversation. This is the great advantage of real life meetings over Tinder; it is spontaneous and off the cuff and you can’t bluff your way through it. A common phrase I hear from Tinder users is “they were nothing like their profile suggested”, you can take this unknown out of the equation by meeting people face to face and seeing what they are all about.

If you take a step back then the like of Tinder will only let you see what people want you to see, some would say that is a good thing but you only have to look at the hoards of men flexing their muscles for their profile pictures in tank tops or women pouting taking a selfie  to realise that we may be fast becoming a generic generation that no one will remember. I for one think that the best way to create an attraction is to meet someone face to face for the first time and not to browse through their photos online. So if Tinder isn’t working for you then don’t fret, maybe it just means you have too much personality for it. Maybe you are not one of the generic generation. Get away from your phone or laptop and meet people in real life scenarios. You never know. You just might enjoy it.
