This Tinder Drinking Game Will Make You Want to Go on Tinder

Whether you’re dipping your feet back into the dating pool after a long relationship, just re-downloaded the app for the fourth time after giving up on finding dates in the “real” world, or just trying to “meet some cool people,” putting yourself out there in the Tindersphere can be an extremely nerve-racking experience. But like all sweat-inducing experiences, it’s nothing a little liquid courage can’t quell. Make scanning and swiping more bearable by playing the Ultimate Tinder Drinking Game:

If You’re Swiping for Women…

Take a sip if:

  • She claims to LOVE a really unhealthy food in her bio (pizza, burritos, chicken nuggets, etc).
  • She expresses a profound love for hiking.
  • She makes a Harry Potter reference. (Classic Hufflepuff.)
  • She includes her Instagram or Snapchat handle in her profile.
  • She has a selfie with a Snapchat filter in her profile (flower headband, dog face, etc).
  • She includes her horoscope or Myers-Briggs personality type in her bio.
  • After looking through her profile, you still can’t tell which one she is from all her group photos.

Finish Your Drink if:

  • You even get a match. (Women are three times less likely to swipe right than men.)
  • You get “super liked.” (You were lucky to get that right swipe, let alone super liked.)
  • She says, at any point, that she can be your Tinderella.
  • She says anything about her passion for Netflix.
  • She asks how tall you are. (You’re going to need that drink.)
  • She agrees to meet for drinks. (You’ve earned it!)

If You’re Swiping for Men...

Take a sip if:

  • He has a job in finance.
  • He makes a Game of Thrones or Anchorman reference.
  • His bio is just arrows pointing to different cities (Iowa--->Boston--->NYC--->Swipe Left).
  • There’s a photo of him holding a fish he probably didn’t catch.
  • He has a photo of himself with a dog or showing off a car.
  • He has a picture of himself doing a Color Run or Tough Mudder.
  • You get “super liked.” (Sorry, you only get to take a sip for this one.)
  • He claims to “never use this thing,” but matches and responds instantly.

Finish Your Drink if:

  • If his bio contains his “actual” age.
  • He is flashing his abs in one or more of his pictures.
  • He has a picture of himself chilling with a (suspiciously chill) tiger.
  • Without prompting, he tells you how much he makes.
  • He freaks out at you for not responding fast enough (yikes).
  • He has Tinder Plus. (Get out of there.)
