To me dating apps are just a way to facilitate making friends. That’s it. Making friends. It all starts with friendship.

Go out. Chill. Get to know each other as equals. That’s it. If things are meant to happen, it will happen.

That said, that’s the beauty of dating apps. It makes the meeting up easier and lowers barriers to entry. I’ve friends who think that apps are like Tinder won’t work because it’s a cesspool of superficial people and hence will never work out in the romance game, but I think they’re missing out.

Just make friends first! Whatever happens, will happen.
