If one of your friends or coworkers lives in your area and happens to be on Tinder with the same age and gender parameters as you, they may well appear in your queue, and vice versa. If not, check their profile to see if they are. I imagine desperate men and women trying to perfect their digital images, advertising themselves and then going out on dates and trying to personify whatever they crafted that sparked interest from a stranger. People who've already swiped right on you are likely to show up near the beginning of your queue, so it could be worth paying careful attention to them as you are likelier to be a match. His research points to interactions, affect and behavior as the indicators of relationship outcomes, rather than searchable traits that these online dating services use for matching. But using common sense and taking certain steps prevents a lot of unnecessary drama. People on the internet can easily be deceived and those looking to deceive take advantage of that. Not every woman is on Tinder looking for casual sex, but even the ladies who are keen on a no-strings hookup are unlikely to be swept off their feet by a rude and juvenile approach. That being said, constantly right-swiping to game the system is a bad idea: There is increasing evidence that, in face-to-face meetings, we are subconsciously picking up clues about the suitability of future partners based on a wide variety of non-verbal information.
