Tinder is still one of the top dating apps in the market today. Many people meet their significant others on the app.
One man used the said app that led him to his future wife. They got married after three years of dating.
He went on Reddit to share the story.
One day, his wife went on a business trip that left him lonely. He decided he would go on Tinder to maybe get some company. According to him, he had no intentions of cheating when he downloaded the app again.
After swiping left and right, he received a notification that said he matched with a certain woman. He was surprised to see that the woman was his wife.
He was skeptical at first and theorized that maybe a bot just stole his wife’s pictures. But after digging deeper, he confirmed that it was indeed his wife that matched with him.
Her profile even had a photo of them where he was cut out. His plan was to confront his wife about this.
People started giving their own impressions on the matter. One said that his wife is not 160 km away from him because of Tinder’s geo-location. Another said that maybe his wife downloaded the app to see if he was going to cheat on her.
Reddit users are waiting for the updates on the story.
Have you experienced having a phone call and your identity mistaken after hearing your voice?
We probably felt offended and sometimes bullied by people who don’t understand human nature. Just like Richard Hey Darla who shared his experience, when a guy he matched on Tinder called him.
Richard said they were having a pleasant conversation when the guy suddenly asked him if his voice bothered him because of sound too effeminate.
So this guy I matched with on Tinder called me and it was a really pleasant conversation until he asked:
Hey, does my voice bother you? Is it too effeminate for you?
That made my heart sink. I assured him that it doesnt bother me and him being too effeminate isnt a concern.

Upon hearing the question, his heart sink as he remembered the feeling of not being accepted because of the feminine attributes he possesses. And while having their conversation, he assured the other guy that being too effeminate isn’t a concern for him.
Damn guys, that made me really sad.
Some of you may have experienced the same thing, wanting to be desired despite your feminine attributes. Ive experienced that on many occasions and the feeling is shit.

The encyclopedia says “effeminacy refers specifically to males who are not sufficiently masculine, according to the expectation of their culture and/or context.”
This means that if a man failed to show his strength, virility, emotional control, and lack of demonstrativeness then this may be seen as more feminine. But this is not only pertaining to man, this even happens to women who are feminine but have masculine attributes who are often called “butch.”
For men who do not manifest masculine traits, whose development is delayed, are usually being ridiculed and bullied by calling them sissy, pussy, queer, faggot, pansy, pouf (British), cream puff, fairy, or the most famous name calling – mama’s boy. And having this shameful experience pushes them to distance themselves from their peers.
Here are some of the netizens who shared their experiences of being effem:
When I was in high school, tumawag ako sa kaklase ko. Narinig ko ang sabi ng kuya niya, "babaeng kaklase mo" tapos nung sinagot ng kaklase ko, tawang tawa siya tapos sinabi niya sa buong pamilya niya na lalaki ako.
Rinig na rinig ko tawa nilang lahat.

Since then, I talked with a lower voice until nasanay na ako. I can still remember the embarrassment I felt.
— J.A. del Prado (@MrJayDelPrado) March 18, 2019
The worst part is being called “ma’am” on the phone. I would just want to shrink like a raisin and eventually pretend to be a girl to avoid embarrassment.

Had this before. And this actually made me insecured of my voice (pero nagbago naman na ngayon, but the insecurity is still there 😕)

Exactly. It's kinda make me wanna hate my personality at some point but that's me. That's the way I am. I can adjust, but I can't change it.

I truly appreciate this sentiment. Ako kase being part of the more "feminine" squad, talagang nadi discriminate. Ang sakit lang na fellow gay people act discriminatory towards other gays. Sana they get to know us before judging us.

Richard’s Twitter post is an eye-opener, that failing to exhibit the characteristics expected of a man or woman, due to delayed physical development, isn’t a choice of their own.
And these people needed to be accepted and be loved; for them to find love within themselves.
In an episode of It’s Showtime, comedian Vice Ganda expressed his frustration over getting blocked from dating app, Tinder.
During the Tawag ng Tanghalan segment on Wednesday, December 5, a contestant shared that she met her current partner online and Vice snapped, “Bad trip. Naka block ako sa Tinder eh!”
He continued and said that it may be the result of people mistaking her for a poser, thus reported her profile.
“Kasi ‘yung mga Pinoy, akala siguro nila poser. Ni-report ako nang ni-report, naka-block tuloy ako! Hindi tuloy ako maka-swipe right, bad trip!”
The comedian went on and said that it’s such a shame because he likes his display photo in the app and there has been a lot of foreigners talking to him.
“Ang ganda-ganda pa man din ng picture ko doon, ‘yung naka swimsuit ako sa Bohol. Ang dami kayang tsumitsika sa akin doon na foreigner!”
Co-host Anne Curtis suggested that he make a new account but Vice Ganda answered that it’s too late.
“Naka-block kasi ako talaga, e. Kahit ano’ng palit ko, hindi ko talaga siya mabuksan. Kailangan ng bagong e-mail.”
He then addressed the viewers, asking them to stop blocking him.
“Huwag niyo nga ako i-block! Ang dami rin kasing Vice. Ilalagay ko, ‘Vice Ganda – Ako Po ‘To.’”
Catcalls don’t just happen in real life, but online as well.
People think that they have the right to say what they think toward others just because the account is set on public.
A female Netizen met a guy online via a dating app, Tinder.
However, her tweet went viral as she shared an inappropriate encounter she had with a stranger on Instagram.
She has attached screenshots of their conversation and captioned them off with, “In this week’s episode of ‘men are trash’ lol”

It started off with the man supposedly complementing her by saying she looked beautiful on Tinder. And when she answered his message, he proceeded to ask her if she wants to be friends with him, which she politely declined by sending in, “Haha no sorry but thank you :).”
He was persistent and kept on convincing her to go out with him to the movies, grab drinks at “starbs”, and even offered to meet her at her workplace. Requests that she, again, declined politely.
That is when the stranger started calling her names and even called her “malandi” (flirt), which is just one of many insults he threw at her just because she didn’t want to go out with a person she doesn’t know.
At the end of the conversation, he took back what he said in his first message by telling her that she’s not really pretty and he just wasted his time.
As the post got thousands of retweets, men who felt victimized by the “generalization” replied said it’s only “some” of them that are like the one in the screenshots. A guy said that he felt hurt because posts like those are always “in general.”
And they went on and tried to correct the initial tweet.

A certain Julia questioned the Netizen about her presence on Tinder if she’s already in a relationship with someone.
If you are really in a relationship with someone, why are you on Tinder?
— Julia (@marquezjuliav) December 3, 2018
A Netizen also blamed her and said that he won’t talk to her if she hasn’t been on Tinder in tzhe first place.
Vlair Kirishima dropped the bombs on the reality of this type of man that pretends to be okay with rejection but continues on insulting the woman in the end.
Yung guy na ganyan na nga mag chat. pagka di mo pinansin chill sya kunwari sabay bitaw ng misogynist remarks at kung ano ano pang lait. ugh! nakaka cringe ganyang guys . so full of himself.
— Vlair Kirishima ✨ (@strawblaireryyy) December 3, 2018
A Twitter user described the guy as an “incel“, which is an online group of people who are unable to find romantic or sexual partners despite desiring to have one. It is largely populated by men who “appear to hate women and in some cases advocate rape.”
Incel ata yang nag chat sayo, ate hahahaha

Uh-oh, if you can relate, you better read the whole article.
A research recently published in Personality and Individual Differences made people talk abuzz. It was a Psychological study about how often Tinder was used by college students to cheat on their partners.
“There has not been a great deal of research on whether Tinder is actually used to facilitate infidelity. Many people assume so but as we know, not all assumptions regarding relationships are accurate so it is important to conduct scientific research to test these lay people hypotheses,” Dana A. Weiser explained, an assistant professor at Texas Tech University.
The study involved 550 college students who had used or were using Tinder and the results are quite shocking.
One in five participants admitted that they are talking with a person on Tinder while in an ‘exclusive’ relationship.
“As many have assumed, Tinder is utilized to meet extradyadic partners. Moreover, variables that predict engaging in infidelity offline also predict the likelihood of engaging in infidelity via Tinder,” Weiser shared in a statement with PsyPost.

Part of using any dating app is selling yourself. Oh, I meant no harm. I’m trying to say that you should know the strategies so people in that app will find you interesting.
So, through scanning on our social media, we chanced upon this quirky Tinder profile. Trust me when I say, this guy has perfected marketing himself.
Meet Vann Vicente, 21, a college student, and a master in making Tinder profiles. This might not be the first time we’re going to see this, but Vann has captivated not just the interest of his Tinder matches, but also our dear netizens.
Originally shared by his cousin, Alexandra, the post instantly went viral with more than 5,400 reactions and 2,400 shares.
The DailyPedia team was able to reach Mr. Vicente and had the chance to ask how did he come up with the idea.
“I saw this meme online about this girl who made a tinder presentation also, so I decided to give it a shot,” he briefly answered.
I mean, what’s there to not like?
He knows how to plot click baits.
The perks of dating him are readily available on his profile.
And if you happen to think of getting him a drink, he’d be glad to share you his top picks.
You know what they say, get you a guy who knows his shortcomings but strives to be better.
You wanna know what others think of him? (He won the hearts of the netizens with this, for sure.)
Ask me how to spell out ‘genius’, I’d answer V-A-N-N!

#TeamLablab is finally back on the big screen after the success of Always Be My Maybe. Gerald Anderson and Arci Muñoz are now ready to amaze us in this completely different film–but with an equally same kilig factor. “Can We Still Be Friends?” is the newest offering of Star Cinema invading theaters on June 14.
The ultimate tandem of Gerald and Arci cleared that they are done with #TeamLablab and they are now the #TeamRelate. Portraying a more mature role, the movie envisions to relate more to the masses. It depicts an ordinary couple facing a usual situation in a relationship.
The film written by Jen Chuaunsu and directed by Prime Cruz, revolves around the story of a couple facing atrocities despite being together for 8 years. The character of Samantha aka Sam (Arci Muñoz) and Diego aka Digs (Gerald Anderson) would definitely appeal to the audience as it reflects the status quo of long-time relationships. The two broke up and lost contact with each other, but fate brings them back together in an awkward conversation.
Do you want to know about what their topic was? Tinder.
But there’s more to the film than the inclusion of the said social dating application. It is a story of lovers who became exes and now starting over again by just being friends.
Here is the official trailer of the movie.
In an interview, Arci was asked if she would be willing to try Tinder. According to her, when they were told about what the app was, she had no idea. She didn’t have a clue what it actually is and how it works. But as soon as she got a hand on it, she probably would consider trying it soon.
“Ako. I’ll try. I think it’s fun. Gagawa ako, kaso [as of now] puno pa yung memory ng phone ko ‘e (laughs).”
So guys, now you know! Better to install that app again and start looking for Ms. Arci Muñoz. Who would know, you might find yourself getting a ‘match’ from her.
On the other hand, while Arci has not yet confirmed her Tinder account, head on to the nearest cinemas to watch this great film starting June 14. Don’t forget!

A scientist from the University of Sydney has warned that 750,000 people on the dating app Tinder have pubic lice or crabs.
In his interview with The Conversation, Dr Cameron Webb said, “Estimates put the prevalence rate of pubic lice infestation in adults at around 1-2 per cent. Rates can be a little higher in older individuals, especially men and men who have sex with men.”
Pubic lice, which are believed to have been the parasitic companions of humans for more than 10,000 years, thrive for about a month. Even if they don’t live that long, a female louse lays about 30 eggs during its lifespan. This means that a steady population is maintained.
Although they commonly live in the pubic hair, they may also thrive in the beard, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpit hair, and chest hair. They are rarely found in head hair.
Pubic lice transfer from host to host through direct contact since they don’t fly or jump.
According to Dr. Webb, insecticide creams can stop pubic lice infestation. He also advises the removal of pubic hair to reduce the occurrence of pubic lice.
A leading sexual health doctor said that the popularity of dating apps could lead to an explosion of the HIV virus and to soaring rates of sexually transmitted infections in heterosexual people.
According to the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV expert Dr. Peter Greenhouse, people are quicker to change partners and are more likely to get infections with a dating app.
“If enough people change partners quickly, and they’ve got other untreated sexually transmitted infections, it might just start an explosion of HIV in the heterosexual population. Apps could do that,” Greenhouse explained.
Greenhouse added that apps should invest more time in sending a safe sex message.
Meanwhile, Marie Cosnard of the dating app Happn denied that dating apps are linked to the rise of STD. She claimed that dating apps even promote safe sex.
“The problem is much wider. People need to be more educated in terms of sexual health and to take their responsibilities, no matter how and where they’ve met their partner,” Cosnard explained.
