Lock the door. Lower the blinds.
It’s time that we have what is hopefully one final kiki of the year. The keyword is hopefully because I get triggered easily by stupidity or just dumb things in general. So Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels because it’s going to get real up in this mother. I know, exactly what you need today:
For those that aren’t sure what the fuck they are in for, a kiki is a party for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just deserts when they deserve. On this edition, we are going to have a nice little chat about why Tinder is just the worst.
So real talk: Can we just talk about how Tinder is just the worst? It either full of strange people or just a bunch of stuck up people. Like, I get that you are going off first impressions of pictures but this app is 50 shades of fucked up shit. First things first, not everyone’s experience with Tinder is going to be the same. I’m going to shitting on it but it’s going be generalizing it. Just take this as something to consider if you haven’t signed up yet. Spoiler: save yourself the trouble and don’t do unless you want a good life.
So there are two kinds of people you will find on Tinder: flaky people or fucked up people looking to get off. Let’s start with the flaky people. So there are people who you will match with that won’t respond back to you when you message them. That totally defeats the purpose of you swiping right. If you swipe right, then you want to chat with someone because you like what they saw or read. So what was the point of swiping right if you aren’t going to reply back? If it was a mistake then just say so because I won’t be angry. I’m more angry at you being a full of dicks and just not responding AT ALL. And yes, I understand that this occurs on every app/site like this but it still doesn’t make this right. Take the five minutes to at least try to have a conversation, especially in your bio if you say you like people who can hold a goddamn conversation.
Then you have fucked up people. Like a profile for Santa appeared and I’m pretty sure that it wasn’t an advertisement. Santa was also posing seductively in front of a fireplace. Don’t ask me why I remember all of this so vividly. It might be because it’s FUCKING BURNED INTO MY MIND because I cannot unsee it. And if you thought this was bad, this was just the icing on the Tinder cake. There are people wearing harnesses and muzzles as well as just endless supplies of torsos. It gets better from there. The bios for the profile also scream hot mess. Like, at least make some sort of effort to look to not fucked up. You catch more bees with honey than vinegar and you’ll find more people by looking less fucked up. You want to ease them into the bondage and not just throw it in their face within the first minute that you want them to tie you up and make you their bitch. Also, unless you don’t have a head, which I highly doubt, let’s also ease into the showing of the torso.
Moral of this kiki: If you are going to use Tinder, good luck. It’s a fucked up in Tinder. People are being rude as fuck or just wanting you to tie them up and gage them.
This kiki was…..

Since I’ve pretty much covered all the social media that I could really think of it, I thought it was the time that I covered how to get people to give you that extra view on dating apps. It’s 2017 and it’s pretty much how people meet anymore. There’s like a thousand dating apps in the app store and it’s usually how most people meet these days due to everything being busy and whatnot.
When you get started on these apps, you need to pick the best pictures that are the best representation of you. They need to not be overly edited because you aren’t that way in real life. Make sure the pictures aren’t just you standing there looking like a model unless you really are a model. I recommend pictures of you being out and about with friends. I also recommend not having a picture of you looking thirsty. That will get you the wrong kind of attention that you probably not looking for. If you are, then you are using dating apps wrong. 2-3 pictures would probably be fine. Just remember that this is the vain part of your profile. Your pictures have to make people want to find out more about you, especially on apps that just show you a picture right off the bat.
Now that they have clicked on your profile, you gotta keep right something about yourself that will make them want to message you. Unless the app gives you questions, you need to make it short, sweet, and to the point. Make sure it’s interesting and something that will catch their attentions. You want to get them intrigued enough to message you. Pretty much, treat it like you would your bio for a social media site. Dating sites are just like Twitter and Facebook but instead of connecting with people you know, you are looking to connect with people you want to fall in love with…and eventually, connect genitals with. I also recommend connecting social media with it if it is allowed. This will let them see more of you than what is just available on whatever app you are doing. Instagram will also let them look at you more and decide whether they want to bang you or not. The Sad part is how true that statement is.
Hopefully, this will help you get a significant other. If you want more of this let me know because I’ll make more.

The “About Me” section is the make-or-break section when it comes to figuring out whether you’re a person of interest. It’s literally the nipples of your profile (like this post if you know what movie that’s from). You need to make it the best because it might cost you something. Because I’m a nice person and want you to find love…or friends. Welcome to “Social Media Corner,” the cleanest corner in the world.
You want to treat it like a résumé but be careful not to brag because then you will seem like you are completely conceited.If you want to mention that you are a model then just mention it only one time. If they want to know more, they will ask. Keeping short also let you have more opportunities for conversation when they message you. List some of your interest, hobbies,etc.
You also don’t want to put anything about being single. People can see that you are single from your relationship status, they don’t need to read it in your “About Me” section as well.It only makes you sound desperate for attention and desperate to find someone to date you. Even if you are desperate, you definitely should not want to show it. Showing your desperation will only get you the pity date or hang out which normally ends with pain, tears, and a marathon of nothing but “The Hills”. No one should have to live through that horror again.
Also, don’t talk about sex in your bio. Literally, keep it in your pants. Leave something to the imagination. Stay classy and not trashy. Basically you just want to keep it short, sweet, and to the point without airing all of your “dirty laundry”, so to speak. That will make you look needy and crazy.
All of this carries over to dating apps and your own social media. People you meet on dating apps will be creeping on your social media. So you want to make it presentable and interesting. Don’t publish or have anything on there you don’t want them to know. It should be pretty much obvious not to do that at this point. Hopefully this will get you a date 🙂

Do you know what really “Grinds my Gears?” when people make comments generalizing that men/women are all the same when they get their heart broken. It’s impossible for them to be the same to begin with. Show me scientific proof of all men/women being the same I will retract that statement. I mean that they have the same DNA, brainwaves, etc. Also, just because one guy is a total tool or one girl plays with too many hearts, isn’t a reason that you should be making comments like that to begin with.
I totally get and understand that your heart is probably been broken by the person you probably just met and made decision about without getting to know them, but you need to give someone a chance before ruling them out. While first impressions are important, generalizing by gender isn’t the answer. Sure, there is similar traits that both men will share with men. The same goes for women as well. Do you know who is the real culprit in this? Society. They are the reason for sometimes lack of individuality being shown when you first meet someone.
If we were all just open and honest, then we would all live in a better society. People also needs to stop playing the victim card. If there wasn’t a connection, then move on. You can’t help that the person doesn’t want to you. Generalizing isn’t helping either. Sure, it’s might help kill the sting because rejection sucks but that’s it. Just think about how much it would suck if people thought the same about you? Do you want to be generalized as a player if you weren’t? Or that you sleep around if you don’t? Think about they before you say that all men/women are the same.
