6 Things That Prove Tinder Has Failed

November 18, 2015 3 min read

Tinder was fun for a while. I can't even remember not being in a room with someone using it when its popularity first came to be. Meet hot singles in your area? Sure! But, I hardly hear anyone discuss it anymore. Is it over? That's the question a lot of people are asking, and some even proclaiming. It's easy ... but it's lazy. This is why Tinder is no longer a successful dating app. "As romance gets swiped from the screen, some 20-somethings aren’t liking what they see," noted Nancy Jo Sales in a recent Vanity Fair piece. The "swipe culture" is making us more shallow, desensitized, dehumanized, lazy, exploited, etc. etc. etc. It's turning people off because it's not getting daters anywhere good! Furthermore, here are six reasons Tinder is O - V - E - R.

1. Casual relationships are boring.

While Tinder doesn't require you to fill out a profile that asks what your passions are, it does seem to have quite a bit if bikini clad babes. Is this connection? Millenials are fed up with loosely dating someone. They want intimacy in more than one form.

2. We are left feeing devalued.

People refer to the many people they have said "yes" to on Tinder as "options." Are people options? Is it that easy? What about respect? This is not supposed to be a numbers game. And despite how much instant gratification might feel good at first, it just leaves you feeling somehow unworthy in the long run. When did it become all about looks? Why can't our charm, our background, our intelligence, our love for animals, books, travel and unique hobbies matter? When we believe there are so many options to choose from, we feel less satisfied with just picking one option. While it feels good to be complimented on your looks, they change, but what comes from within certainly doesn't. [bctt tweet="Is "swipe culture" making us more shallow, desensitized, and lazy?"]

3. There are much better dating apps that came after Tinder.

Happn for example is like Tinder in the sense that it has a larger user base of singles, but without the use of the "swipe." You match with people you have crossed paths with, and you have a space to share a deeper side of you than what meets the eye.

4. Women want to share experiences with men, not simply share a bed.

The hard truth is that men on Tinder typically use it for casual sex, while women are looking for a real date. And when the female users are unhappy with the app, there's a problem. Any CEO can attest to that. The dating app SuperDate is like the opposite of this issue, since you match with users via similar interests. Like happy hour while watching the sunset at an ocean view restaurant? Someone else might too! And they don't have to be your next casual hookup. What's even more, you can upload what makes a perfect date to YOU.

5. Tinder now charges money.

Plain and simple, when one thing starts charging money, people will opt for the free option. While it used to be that you could have endless swipes, now users are charged to access "premier features." Over 30 years old? You'll get charged. Want to see whose single in another country? There's a fee for that.

6. What are people actually looking for on Tinder anyway?

It's difficult to know someone's intention in the dating world when there's no space to provide it. Are they interested in love? A one night stand? All the guessing is simply exhausting. Do you feel like Tinder is over?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
