If Girls Told The Truth In Their Tinder Bios

If Girls Told The Truth In Their Tinder Bios

It’s the app we all downloaded just so we’d have something to do when we’re bored — the thing we’re all so addicted to that we can’t give it up for more than a few weeks: Tinder. It’s every single girl’s dirty little secret. We all deny that we have it and deny that we’ve used it, but can’t seem to let go of the legend we heard about the girl who found her now fiancé by simply swiping right.

But on this quest to find our happily ever after, we have to present the best version of ourselves. We make sure to FaceTune any dark circles or zits in our photos, only post snaps where our arms look skinny, and make sure to never message first unless our opening line is a true zinger. We have Tindering down to a science. A big, dishonest, science.

The thing about online (or app) dating is that we present the best, most carefully-crafted and perfected version of ourselves. Because we are convinced if we didn’t, no one would have us. And that Lean Cuisine for one we just heated up in the microwave probably means that we are absolutely right in that thinking.

“wanderlust.”

“Seriously, if you ever meet my parents and tell them I had a picture of me in a bikini shotgunning a Tecate online, I will murder you.”

Bio Should Say:
“All of my friends are in relationships and wouldn’t know how to use Tinder if you paid them.”

Bio Says:
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s best to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe

Bio Should Say:
“Somehow Tinder fucked up and I’m not 25, I’m 20. But I have my older sister’s fake ID and am not going to cop to it until you’ve bought me at least 5 dinners and gone down on me while ‘watching’ Never Been Kissed.”

Bio Says:
“Proud dog mommy to the cutie in the third pic!”
Bio Should Say:
“Get ready to find dog hair everywhere after the first time you come over to my place. I haven’t vacuumed properly since 2012.”

Bio Says:

Bio Should Say:

Bio Says:
“Live. Laugh. Love.”
Bio Should Say:
“Run.”
