It's also pretty dangerous when both parties have different levels of power within the relationship, as well as being really skeevy if the dude is married (and a lot of them are). Tinder is an online dating app based entirely on whether you'd bone the other person.
If you want an older man to pay your bills or buy you a purse just because you're adorable and don't necessarily want to have sex with him, just nag your dad. If you've ever used Tinder and complained that whoever you met was a shallow asshat, know that you are part of the problem and should swipe left on your own existence.
Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
An online dating service is a company that provides specific mechanisms (generally websites or applications) for online dating through the use of Internet-connected personal computers or mobile devices.
Online dating services allow users to become "members" by creating a profile and uploading personal information including (but not limited to) age, gender, sexual orientation, location, and appearance.
Most services also encourage members to add photos or videos to their profile.
Once a profile has been created, members can view the profiles of other members of the service, using the visible profile information to decide whether or not to initiate contact.
Or at least go it with your eyes wide open and be prepared for weirdos with dick pics.
