Chivalry Isn’t Dead

Chivalry Isn’t Dead

Most people believe that chivalry is dead. Men nowadays are portrayed as being emotionless beings who aren’t gentlemen. Long gone are the days where you’d meet at a dance, and be walked home afterwards if the man took a fancy to you. It wasn’t as easy to keep in touch back when people think true romance blossomed, so meeting up and talking was always an exciting questions. Nowadays, girls get taken out for a meal, and sometimes are left waiting for a text back that never arrives. But this isn’t true for all men, some men out there are still as much of a gentleman as back in the day. Simple little things that we take for granted in our society, but really show that chivalry isn’t dead.

The dates that they take you out on are always thought through and planned, to make sure you have a good night. They’ll take you out somewhere nice and pay for everything to make sure you have a good night. People think this is the norm, that men should pay for everything. But it really is an act of absolutely kindness and love. Being treated to a meal, or a night out makes a girl feel so special and wanted. Men shouldn’t have to pay for everything, but they choose to purely as it’s the manly thing to do.

Buying you cute gifts to make you happy is another reason why chivalry is alive and well. If you’re feeling down, they’ll be the one’s to cheer you up with your favourite food. Or even randomly, they’ll surprise you with a gift to show how much they care. They don’t expect anything in return other than to see you happy. Even simple little things like saying good morning, or goodnight, and wishing you a good day is another way of them showing their appreciation for you. Knowing you’re their first, and last thought of the day really does make you feel special.

One big thing all guys have the task of doing is proposing. Nothing show chivalry quite like this. They have to go through the nerves of asking your father for their blessing. They have to plan it all precisely so that it’ll be perfect for you. They think of ways to say how much they love you. They also have to pick out a gorgeous ring, such as the tacori engagement rings here. They need to make sure it’s the perfect fit, style and colour for you. So much thought and attention goes into this to make sure you feel perfect on the day.

Even little things like just being an ear for her to talk to. You’ll have so many issues going on in your life, and no one can listen and reassure you quite like your partner can. They’ll listen to all your worries with an open mind, and support you no matter what. They’ll be a shoulder to cry on when you need it, and will always make everything seem better.

Dig That Relationship Out Of A Rut

Dig That Relationship Out Of A Rut

After the initial butterflies and champagne stage of a relationship, romance and love go from a whirlwind pace to a slow, more relaxed pace. No one expects a relationship to stay in the honeymoon phase forever, but if yours has gone from loving and sexy to pensioners at dawn, then there needs to be a change made. Life is far too short to be boring and while the steady, more calm love is deeper and more meaningful, it can feel a whole lot less racy than it used to be. If you feel like you’re getting stuck in a relationship rut with sex-by-numbers every weekend, then it’s up to you to pull yourself out of it and inject a little something else into your regular routines.

Trying to think of the best ways to spice up your routine is just as tiring sometimes, so what you need to do is sit down together and brainstorm how you can get through a rut and come out the other side happier and more in tune than ever. We’ve got some ideas, so why not work your way through the list?

  • Flirt. Flirting isn’t just for teenagers, you know! There’s nothing wrong with a few flirtatious messages sent back and forth while you’re at work, so check out this list of text messages that could get you started!
  • Shower Together. Some couples don’t have the drive or the inclination for sex, especially when small children are in the picture. Not having a regular sex life doesn’t mean you can’t have intimacy and canoodling together in the shower is one of the best ways you can talk, laugh and have fun. If you’re looking to go one better, check out this shaving guide and give the gift of hygiene. There’s nothing stopping you both getting groomed together, either!
  • Say ‘Yes’. If your spouse comes to you with a fun idea, don’t shoot them down. There’s nothing more off-putting than someone who isn’t willing to try out a new restaurant, theatre show or even bedroom Olympics idea. So, put your comfort zone down and say yes for a change. You never know what you could discover!
  • Kiss. It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But often the first thing to go in a relationship are those sweet kisses you find yourself caught in. Sure, the lusty kisses that lead to steamy romance may have dwindled, but there are so many other types! Off to work kisses, just because kisses, sleepy kisses to say good morning. They’re all there for the taking so don’t miss the opportunity to pucker up.
  • Date. Long term relationships that involve children go so quickly. One minute you’re holding hands in the park after a dinner date and the next it’s been five years and you’re knee-deep in dirty laundry with no time to even brush your hair. Invite him out on a date and spoil him for a change, he will love you taking charge!

Marriage and relationships can get boring, but it doesn’t have to stay that way!

A Complete Guide to Explaining Sex to Your Children

A Complete Guide to Explaining Sex to Your Children

Family eating their breakfast sitting at the table

To many parents, this is one of the most dreading conversations you can have with your children. Talking about sex is such a vital part of life, but it’s necessary that you explain it in such a way that they understand what it’s for, what happens and what the risks are.

However, each child is unique and will need to be told in their own way. Do you have the conversation at a young age when they’re 7-8 or do you wait until they’re 16? To give you a helping hand, here is a complete guide to help you make the best decision.

0 – 2 Years Old

It may surprise you that children are sexually conscious from birth. You may have been changing a diaper or washing your child in the bath, only to realize that they play with their own genitals. It’s safe to say that this isn’t a one-off occurrence.

It’s true, if you have a son, you may realize they also frequently have erections, even from a young age. Although your child may be too young to understand how sex works and what it’s for, it’s good to bear in mind that this mindset is already there.

Bear in mind that it’s never too early to start teaching your kids about the proper names for their genitals. If your child frequently touches themselves and ask questions, it’s fine to tell them what it is. You may encounter situations where your child touches themselves in public. If this is the case, simply tell them this isn’t acceptable, but don’t shame them or make a scene.

2 – 6 Years Old

As you can expect, toddlers are not only curious about their own bodies and their own toy belongings, but also about other toddlers around them. You’d be surprised at how much attention toddlers give to others and their bodies. With this in mind, be prepared to answer many questions that will come your way.

Although, at this age, you won’t want to give them a step-by-step guide on how to have sex, you can tell them a simple version of, for example, where babies come from, should the question arise.

You can say something like ‘When Mommy and Daddy love each other, Daddy’s seed and Mommy’s egg come together to make a baby.’

However, you know your child better than anyone, so it’s important that you gauge how understanding and how much information you give to them.

If you catch your child touching other children, always remember that this is simply curiosity and no harm is intended. Don’t scold your child for it, simply tell them they can touch themselves in private, but someone else is out of bounds.

7 – 10 Years Old

As we move up the age ranges, your child will become increasingly curious. You can expect to hear flat-out questions such as ‘Where do babies come from?’ and ‘What is sex?’ At this age, children are mentally much more understanding yet they’re not at an age where the conversation could be conceived as embarrassing.

At this age, you can begin to teach your children about puberty, as this is the stage they’re starting to enter. For example, you may like to show your children, both boys, and girls, what a tampon is and how it works. You can simply do this using a dish full of water.

However, be prepared for questions that may shock you, such as ‘What’s a blowjob?’ If you haven’t got an answer prepared, tell them you’ll tell them later but do make sure this is what you do and don’t leave the conversation hanging.

You can’t simply tell them ‘It’s another word for oral sex when two adults touch genitals with their mouths.’ You may consider using illustrated books to explain any questions they may have, without getting too deep into it.

10 – 13 Years Old

This is when sex becomes a lot more personal as your children have entered puberty. The concept of sex itself has now transformed into something that will gross them out, and they may be embarrassed to talk about. Make it clear that you’re happy to engage in conversation if they want to.

Hair will now start to grow, and their bodies will change so just ensure that you’re honest with your child when they have a question. It’s all natural, and there’s nothing to be ashamed for.

You’ll also want to start educating about the risks of sex and the fact that they can get pregnant as well as the risks of STDs. You will have to be explicit while explaining these concepts.

14+ Years Old

This is easily the most important part of their growing up life when it comes to sex. Hormones will be out of control, and the concept of sex becomes very real. Depending on your child’s social groups, they may be very distant from the idea of sex or they may be feeling pressured to do so.

However, most teenagers will not want to talk about it with their parents, but it’s important that you give them the option to unjudgmentally. Nowadays, it’s important to educate your children that in the sex-indulged world, in music videos and television series, isn’t real and everyone can make their own decisions when they’re ready.

As your child enters this stage, it’s imperative you talk about contraception and where to get it. For boys, you’ll want to introduce the idea of condoms as you will with girls. The contraceptive pill is okay, but there are a lot of long-term health issues, including cancer, depression, and anxiety, involved with them.

Final Thought

As a parent, it’s ultimately up to you when you decide to talk to your child about what as you know them better than anyone. As some broad advice, always be respectful of everything your child says, don’t place any kind of judgment on them and always give them the opportunity to talk when they’re ready.

6 Ways To Keep A Long-term Relationship Alive

6 Ways To Keep A Long-term Relationship Alive

 

It is a fact that our feelings tend to change as time goes by. This is noticeable in long-term relationships as well. A lot of people get frustrated due to changes and their response can jeopardize the whole relationship. Once honey moon phase is over, couples find themselves in front of big decisions. Questions arise, and often, people conclude that they made a mistake, since they’re not in love anymore, and end the relationship. The truth is, couples just need to slow down, talk and understand each other. Nothing good came out of fear. The text below offers useful tips which may come in handy while thinking about your relationship.

Try to have the best time of your life

A great sign of strong relationship is the ability to laugh with your significant other. It is crucial that you can share and experience happiness together. Of course, sense of humor can be very helpful in stormy times. In order to keep the relationship alive, it is very important to be able to laugh at your imperfections while trying to grow and overcome them. The same rule should go for your partner as well. When times become rough, laughter is the best medicine you’ll have.

Stay open-minded

When a relationship gets intense and close, plenty of couples begin to draw boundaries and protect from each other. This is a destructive behavior since love can’t be alive if you don’t share time and feelings with your partner. Open your eyes wide and see what your partner loves to do. Ask them how they feel and just keep up with good and open communication. It is important to do everything you can to avoid a restriction of your partner’s happiness. Forget about all boundaries, both of you should feel free in the relationship.

Express your love, don’t hide it inside

Love is a living force and should be treated that way. Every expression of love should be transparent and your partner will be happy to know they’re loved. Don’t just use words, they aren’t as strong as you may think. Showing of love is a much better way of keeping your relationship healthy and fulfilling. Always find enough time to talk and show affection. Those should be your daily routine. Hold your hands, make a lot of eye contact and enjoy with each other.

Keep up with your individuality

Make sure to remain a genuine individual at all times. Try not to lose yourself in love by jeopardizing your innate separateness. You should encourage each other to remain yourselves above all. You fell in love with that person, and you don’t want to lose it to your relationship. Fuel up yourself with tolerance and help your loved one to pursue their personal goals. Instead of merging into one, try to continue with your life, and magically, your relationship will get better and stronger.

Practice an open communication

Regardless of the problems you have, don’t feel embarrassed to share them with your significant other. You may feel depressed or anxious about the future, you may feel a decrease in libido or experience other sexual related issues. Always talk to your partner about those issues and they’ll be eager to help. Don’t be afraid to go to a couple’s counseling or an individual therapy. Some men have a fear from sexual underachieving, but if you talk, you may resolve the issue with a simple premature ejaculation treatment, if that’s the case. Just make sure to share everything, regardless of the topic. That kind of open communication is very healthy and will strengthen your relationship.

Don’t forget to be generous

Being generous means that you are willing to give yourself to other, but on the other hand, it also means that you are able to receive what’s given to you. Always remember to show appreciation, especially when gifts and acknowledgment are hard for you to receive. Try to avoid keeping a score by any means necessary. What you give and what you receive shouldn’t be measured ever. Your relationship will flourish if there is plenty of giving and understanding. Being generous is a win-win situation since both of you will feel happier and closer to each other.

Final thoughts

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to keep up with the long-term relationship, and those above are just a few of them. Feel free to be creative and proactive in your relationship. Don’t just sit down and wait for something to happen. Invest yourself and your partner will respond to that, making the relationship more stable and fulfilling.

Are You At A Crossroads In Your Relationship? How To Choose The Right Path

Are You At A Crossroads In Your Relationship? How To Choose The Right Path

There comes a time in life when many of us find ourselves at a crossroads. Perhaps you’re thinking about changing your job, or you wonder if your partner is really the one. If you’ve been having troubles in your relationship, you’re considering a change of direction, and you’re not sure which path to take, hopefully, this guide will come in handy.

Identifying issues

If you feel like you need to make a decision between staying and leaving, try and pin down the reasons why you’re doubting the future of your relationship. What has caused you to ask questions? Do you see other couples and secretly wish you had what they have or have you come to the realization that your relationship isn’t making you as happy as it used to? Do you want more from life or are you worried that your partner is cheating on you or hiding something from you? Once you know why you have doubts and unanswered questions, you can start finding solutions. Maybe you need to have a discussion, or perhaps you’d feel more comfortable using services like https://www.investigators.net.au/private-investigation-services/surveillance/ to get an answer. Whatever is making you feel uneasy, make sure you think carefully before making a decision. If you do suspect a partner of being unfaithful or you have concerns about how they spend their time or money, get the facts first. It can sometimes be easy to misread the signs or put two and two together and get five.

Talking

If you’re having difficulties in your relationship, don’t bury your head and hope they go away. Tackle issues front-on, and be honest with each other. Sit down and talk about the situation and share what’s going on in your head. There can be barriers when it comes to communication, and you shouldn’t assume that your partner has the ability to read your mind. Something that is getting you down and occupying all your thoughts could be remedied by one simple conversation. If you find it hard to open up, it may be worth considering booking some sessions with a therapist or a relationship counselor. If you struggle with conversation, you may also find this article useful https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201406/5-tips-tough-conversations-your-partner.

Putting yourself first

Often, we make decisions based on what would benefit other people, but ultimately, when it comes down it, you have to put yourself first in certain situations. There’s no point in dragging something out that isn’t making you happy because you don’t want to upset your partner. It’s very distressing to feel like you’re hurting somebody who means so much to you, but making that call may be the best option for both of you.

Do you feel like the future of your relationship is uncertain? If you’re at a crossroads, it’s important that you make the right decision and you take the right path for you. Consider why you have doubts and try and find solutions to problems. Talk to each other, be open, and make the call based on what will benefit you most.

How to Choose the Right Counseling for Your Relationship

How to Choose the Right Counseling for Your Relationship

Everyone goes through a tough time in their relationship. It’s almost inevitable that you and your partner will at some point argue over something. Whether it’s a trivial matter, a complete misunderstanding or a serious problem, we all have ups and downs in our love life. But, as the saying goes, whatever doesn’t break your relationship should make you stronger.

One of the most common ways to mend a relationship is to hire a counselor for help. If you’re suffering from major issues in your relationship then you’ll want to try your best to get professional help, but it can be daunting trying to pick the right person to trust with your problems. It goes without saying that counseling sometimes doesn’t work, and things such as success rates could potentially put you off ever speaking to someone.

Source

The reality of counseling

First, we need to go through some basics. Counseling doesn’t guarantee that you and your partner will get back to together. In fact, most couples leave it far too late and, as a result, they don’t get the desired results. Some couples wait until their relationship is almost over until they decide to visit a counselor, and this is a terrible idea. Professionals can identify problem areas with your relationship, not just fix current issues, so if you’re currently in a fine relationship but want to safeguard your future, then consider speaking to a counselor regardless. In addition, counseling sometimes results in ugly conclusions such as divorce. While unpleasant, you shouldn’t completely rule out the possibility of your counselor telling you that divorce is the best option.

Faith-based counseling

People often forget that our decisions can be heavily influenced by our faith. This is why services like Christian counseling exist for those of us who follow certain religions. It’s important to understand that you need to think about someone’s faith before you decide to call in a counselor because the decisions and conclusions you reach will be different. Depending on your teachings, the ideals you follow and so on, it’s possible to solve an issue in different ways that won’t lead you to betray your beliefs. Picking the right counselor that understands your beliefs is the key to having successful therapy sessions.

The reputation of your counselor

You need to pick a counselor that has a good reputation. There are many counselors out there that will refuse to listen to you, opt to pick a treatment or conclusion that doesn’t fit your overall goals, and could even damage your relationship. As a therapist, their position is incredibly important in the role of improving your marriage, which is why you need someone who is trustworthy and has a long list of clients that can vouch for their services. If you’re unable to find recommendations locally, then look online and read reviews on nearby counselors to size up the services available in your area. Take your time on this step, because the difference between a good and a lazy counselor could ultimately make or break your relationship.

Overcome Your Sticking Bad Habits For The Happiest Life You Can Live

Overcome Your Sticking Bad Habits For The Happiest Life You Can Live

Flickr

Life is beautiful, and has plenty to offer. However, sometimes, it can be darn difficult to make it through. These tests of character strengthen our resolve, and make us into better people. However, they’re not always enjoyable to make it through. Over time, we might pick up multiple bad habits that make us less appreciate and open to life, and instead are used as a crutch that makes us limited in our competence and willingness to step outside our comfort zone.

Everyone has flaws, and that is the one rule you can absolutely count on. There is no such thing as the perfect individual. Everyone has parts of themselves that they dislike. Healthy people attempt to mitigate these flaws as best as possible and it’s an ongoing, sometimes difficult process. Unhealthy people cover these issues up and this can present itself in many difficult alternate ways, such as snapping at a family member with a biting comment, or at its most difficult, experiencing a nervous breakdown in a stressful situation.

Here are some bad habits you might have accumulated, and how to get over them with the best effectiveness, and most success you can muster.

Alcohol Intake

Drinking is a fun and social activity enjoyed by many people at the weekends or with the odd meal. It can be used as an entertaining social lubricant or celebratory crutch to make those special events even more sociable. However, thanks to its widely accessible nature, and relatively cheap accessibility, drinking is cheaper than ever. It’s also easier to abuse it, and abuse it without paying much mind to doing so.

A few beers every weekend could develop into a few beers and whiskies every few day, until you begin the slow decline into alcoholism. The harmful effect this will have on your body is hard to understate. Alcoholism is one of the most gripping and deadly scourges of our modern life, and it has real, physical changes. Alcohol withdrawal is a nasty process, akin to withdrawing from drugs. Unfortunately, thanks to the ‘blur’ that alcohol places on your life, important issues such as losing relationships or a job thanks to your drinking will only be solved in your state with more drinking, and the horrific cycle continues.

If this is you, or you see a friend or family member going through this process, you should immediately organize an alcoholism rehabilitation process. Of course, if you’re being affected by this malady, it’s likely that you’re good at deceiving yourself against it. Everyone comes to a fork in the road during their lifetime though, so embedding yourself in this process can serve as necessary escapism towards a life currently fraught with substance difficulty.

Pornography Usage

Pornography usage is more commonly utilized in the modern world than you think. The world’s leading pornography usage gets more daily views that Twitter, Youtube & Reddit combined. Many feel like this is a net positive, as expressing sexuality is much easier in the modern day. However, it’s not all a bed of roses. Extensive pornography usage can actually hamper the daily functioning of the brain because we are not evolved as humans to experience such dopamine rushes during extensive pornography viewing sessions. It can lead to depressive-like and fatigue-reminiscent tendencies, which can be read about here.

Limiting or cutting out your pornography usage is not a question of your approval about the ethics of the industry, as that is an individual problem. However, giving your brain a break might just help you see clearer in daily life.

Follow these tips for the best and most-proactive ways to sorting yourself out. Nothing could be more important.

Are Men at a Disadvantage in Modern Dating?

By Guest Blogger Stefan S.

Are Men at a Disadvantage in Modern Dating?

The answer to this question is far more complicated than it seems at first. The fact that more and more women are getting higher education and jobs that allow them full independence has made women kind of ‘useless.’ Once they establish themselves, many women turn to younger men for romantic adventure, more than anything else, making cougar dating increasingly popular.

Girl 1, Boys 0

Experts and laymen alike will agree that we are undergoing one of the biggest social revolutions known to man thanks to feminist and empowering movements encouraging girls to pursue higher education and professional careers. Girls make up 57 percent of university students, outnumbering men in every program, including math and engineering. Two thirds of medical students are now women, compared to only 29 percent in the early 1990s. This means that far more women are coming out of universities than men, which will have huge social ramifications down the road, including a more emotionally stable and an overall much nicer business culture.

However, with so many girls climbing up the social, educational and professional ladder, where does that leave boys? Well, to put it bluntly, it leaves them way behind. It is a known evolutionary fact that females prefer males who are equal or better than them in terms of intellectual abilities, social status and the overall ability to take good care of their families. On the one hand, the future looks bright for women in the workforce, but who are they going to marry as they surpass their male peers in every aspect? Will they turn into cougars once they give up on marriage and the men of their generation? Quite possibly.

The Makings of a Cougar

Another issue is that most women opting for higher education come from middle-class families, and as they mature, they become sophisticated, educated and self-confident women looking for men who are higher up on every ladder than they are. So where does that leave the working-class men? Simply, nowhere. All the Bridget Joneses won’t even give them the time of day, and pretty soon this wonderful social revolution we’re all experiencing will lead to women running out of men to marry. Enter Susan Sarandon, Demi Moore, Courtney Cox, and the bunch.

So, who’s really at a disadvantage? The women who can’t find suitable dates that are intelligent, educated and positioned well enough, i.e. better than them, or the men who as it seems can’t keep up? It’s clear that both women and men are challenged when it comes to their dating options, which begs the question – what do they do? Past a certain point in life, many women turn toward younger men who may not be able to provide stability, but can provide a new kind of zest for life. And as for men dating older women, they know that older women won’t try to change them, and make them into something they’re not because older women don’t need younger men, they want them.

Struggling To Conceive? Don’t Give Up Hope Just Yet

Struggling To Conceive? Don’t Give Up Hope Just Yet

Human life is a strange old thing, not least when it comes to the biology of becoming parents. While some people manage to conceive from a drunken one night stand, many couples will spend months (or even years) trying for a baby without any luck. If you fall into the second category, it can fill you with frustration and worry in equal measures. But you cannot give up on the dream just yet.

 

It’s simply a fact of life that some parents have to try harder than others. Use this advice to help you through the struggle, and the process will become less daunting. Good luck.

#1. Remove The Pressure

 

When you’ve actively tried to get pregnant without any joy for several months, you will inevitably start to feel the pressure. However, it’s important to remember that the best things in life often take time. As such, you must find a way to remove some of the pressure.

 

Making sex all about the desire to fall pregnant isn’t healthy for either partner. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with respecting the schedules. On the other hand, there’s equally nothing wrong with spicing things up in the bedroom. When sex remains fun, the pressure will be greatly reduced.

 

Even if it doesn’t speed up the process of falling pregnant, it will aid your relationship greatly.

 

#2. Be Healthy

 

There is no denying the direct correlation between good health and the probability of conceiving. While it certainly doesn’t guarantee anything, investing in your health can only boost those chances.  Adding this to the agenda is essential.

 

Healthy eating and regular exercise are both ideas that you can embrace as a couple. It’ll bring you closer together, and will bring direct benefits to your own lives as well as the hopes of adding another to the family.

 

Let’s face it; looking better will only aid your sex life too.

 

#3. Get Medical Support

 

Sometimes, it just takes time to get pregnant. In other cases, though, an additional boost is required to make the magic happen. Thankfully, medical science is more advanced than ever before. Ultimately, that can work wonders for your chances of overcoming those hurdles.

 

Your GP should be able to provide some pointers. However, in vitro fertilization doctors are the best form of support out there. IVF has helped thousands of parents realize their dreams, and it could well be your ticket to parenthood too.

 

Surrogates and other options are available too. So if the traditional approach isn’t working, it’s worth researching those opportunities.

 

#4. Look At The Alternatives

 

Unfortunately, having children simply isn’t written in the stars for some couples. Hearing that news can be a little soul destroying, but it doesn’t signal the end of your dream to become parents.

 

There are plenty of other options out there. Adoption is an increasingly common option and can be a fantastic way to help a child that needs that love more than most. The biology may say that you’re not blood-related, but that doesn’t make you any less of a family.

 

It truly is one of the most amazing things that you could ever do.

Tinder Tourism: is it Time to Evolve?

By Guest Blogger Stefan S.

Tinder Tourism: is it Time to Evolve?

Evolution is a funny business. Is Tinder evolving? Are we to evolve past Tinder? The answer to both questions is yes. You might remember the time when you had to open a stinky browser to date online, but then Tinder came along and revolutionized dating on the internet. However, many people are wondering whether the time has come to dethrone Tinder, but the biggest problem is that we’re still waiting for the successor. And whether you’re into dating black women or you prefer Asian, senior and divorced, you must have unknowingly come across a Tinder tourist at least once who ruined it all. And that’s why Tinder tourists have to go. Or do they?

“S/he Just Wanted a Tour Guide with Benefits”

If you live in a big city, you must have come across a tourist using Tinder to score some quick dates with a little tour guide on the side, or vice versa. Tinder was supposed to be used by ‘dateable’ singles to meet and start a romance, not meet, start a romance, and then leave on Sunday night without even saying as much as a goodbye. This is an enormous waste of someone’s time, not to mention hurtful because it makes the other person feel tricked into talking to someone who was just looking for a little action during their travels.

Tinder Tourism Enthusiasts

However, not everyone is angry at Tinder tourists. There are lots of people out there who date them, and some even develop friendships afterwards.

As Tinder CEO Sean Rad once put it, Tinder is a place for “social discovery”. And to many people it is, and those are the kinds of people who don’t take dating too seriously. What’s more, when both persons are aware of the situation and lay down some ground rules, Tinder tourism can be a wonderfully intimate experience for the tourist both with the other person and their city. Not to mention all the great places to eat that a Tinder tourist will get to see that are never in any guidebooks.

So What’s The Verdict?

Given that there are loads of people who think Tinder tourism is a great way to meet new cultures, friends and lovers, there is nothing left to do but to declare a tie. Still, it goes without saying that all Tinder tourists should make their ‘identities’ known, such as adding ‘French guy in London’ in their bio to avoid deceiving anyone. Plus, wouldn’t that be a great conversation starter?

What’s also very important is the fact that anyone who’s into Tinder tourism should insist on meeting in a public place. And if you happen to be one of those people who’re looking for a serious relationship, when you find yourself in a conversation with a Tinder tourist, it would be best to just get out of it quickly before anyone’s time gets wasted.
