Tinder will let you list your sexual orientation in your profile

With the arrival of Pride month, dating app Tinder is making moves to be more welcoming to LGBT users for the event and beyond. In collaboration with GLAAD, the company has announced it will now let users list their sexual orientation in their profile.

Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps but does not have the best reputation among LGBT folks. Although users can filter who they want to match with, they don’t always work well. The inability for lesbian women to completely block men from matching with them, for example, has been a source of frustration.

With the new update, Tinder users can list their sexual orientation, which will determine who they match with. They can select up to three terms to describe their orientation.

“We want all of our users to feel empowered expressing who they are while connecting with new people — and we’re always working to make that easier for our users on Tinder,” said Elie Seidman, CEO of Tinder. “Dating apps are invaluable platforms for connecting the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re beyond proud to continue our efforts, in partnership with GLAAD, to improve the community’s experience on Tinder.”

The update will be rolled out to the iOS and Android app for users in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand this month.

Guys, here are 5 major reasons why women get tired of dating you

If you’re wondering why your babe no longer cares as she used to, one of these reasons could be responsible for the change.

It is logical to wonder what could have gone wrong if your girlfriend or partner begins to show signs of being fed up of you and the relationship.

If your girlfriend ever starts to give you attitude and you wonder why, one of more of these five reasons could be responsible for the change:

1. You stopped being the guy she fell for

Not many things are as annoying and tiring for women as inconsistency. If you blew hot at the beginning of the relationship, you should keep that up. Don’t switch up on her negatively when the relationship finally begins.

Keep being sweet to her, keep communicating, keep being supportive, keep looking out for her, keep being the driven, passionate guy… because if you stop being the partner she met and fell for, don’t be surprised if she no longer wants anything to do with you.

2. You’re cheating on her

Obviously, cheating is a game changer. If you are a serial, unrepentant cheat, your partner would surely want to get out.

No woman deserves the emotional imbalance of dealing with a fornicating, no-holds-barred cheat.

And to be honest, that’d be the right thing to do.

3. Your priorities changed

Do you still show her she’s special? Do you still hold her in high esteem and make it obvious in the things you do and the decisions you take?


If the answer to that is no, she may seek a way out. No one wants to play second fiddle or be placed so low on the list of priorities and what you hold dear.

If your friends, job and pretty much everything comes before your woman all the time, it won’t be long before she gets fed up.

4. Bad sex

If your sex game is not A1, there’s every chance that the dissatisfaction will brew over at some point and cause her to seek a way out of the relationship.

Not many women want to be tied for life to men who are capable of only mediocre sex. If they can avoid it, they will. And your babe looking for a way out could be as a result of this, too.

5. Respect

Did you stop respecting her as a person? Do you throw her opinions back in her face or don’t bother asking for her input on issues that affect you both? Do you try to control her life and dismiss her own opinions on matters that concern her?

Then surely you deserve to be tossed in the bin. And it may be only a matter of time before she dumps you.

The 3 Fatal Mistakes That Make Men Lose Interest Fast

Stop his disappearing magician act.

If you’ve ever had a guy you’re dating suddenly lose interest in you after you thought you had something amazing going, you know how painful it can be. It’s like getting the rug pulled out from underneath you, especially if they ghost you.

Why do men pull away? Was it something you said? Something you did?

There are so many unanswered questions on why his attraction towards you suddenly dwindled. And, too often, he’s long gone before you can get to the bottom of this mystery.

It helps to know why guys suddenly just lose interest in you.

Not only do they give you the skills to know how to attract men, but keeping them in mind will also lead to successful relationships in the future.

Here are 3 reasons why men pull away so quickly.

1. You had sex too soon

Hooking-up and having sex with a guy too soon distracts him from getting to know you as a human being. The number one reason why guys disappear is that they perceived you as a sex object and never really got to know you as a person.

This is an easy fix. When a guy is aiming towards a hook up with you or to have sex with you too soon, simply state the following: “I’m really attracted to you. You’re funny, charming and sexy. However, I don’t feel comfortable having sex (I’m enjoying making out with you) until I get to know you better. What do you think?”

Will this lower your hook-up rates? Absolutely! Will some guys argue with you and complain? Absolutely! Will a guy who is really into you and wants to get to know you say that he understands and is willing to get to know you better? Yes, and that’s what you’re looking for.

You want a guy who cares about how you feel and wants to make sure you’re comfortable. He’s not in a hurry, because he’s comfortable with himself. He enjoys the challenge of winning you over. This is how you separate the mature men who want a relationship from the boys.

2. You suddenly want a commitment

To be fair, this only happens when you don’t follow the step above. You might get upset when you have sex with a guy too soon and then he suddenly becomes less attentive or loses interest. You want to know what’s going on, so you ask him.

Meanwhile, the guy, for his part, thinks you’re cool with hooking-up because frankly, you did. He assumes no responsibility for your feelings because it wasn’t required to sleep with you and he’s startled when you get upset.

Then, when you ask him about a commitment and whether or not he’s really into you, you get a lot of backpedaling and wishy-washy answers until you don’t see him again.

3. You’re just not compatible

Sometimes, your lives just don’t fit together. Men are often the first to recognize this. They realize you want to be married and have children. Or, his career is going to move him out of the state or country. He just doesn’t see a future with you.

And, sometimes, since he didn’t take the time to get to know you better, he loses interest because he’s just not that into you. This usually happens when he wasn’t invested. He hadn’t spent the time to get to know you.

There’s nothing to do about this one. It is what it is. You’re looking for the right guy and to do that, you have to get comfortable losing the wrong ones.

Courtship is a test of time and it will greatly reduce your return and starting over rates.

Get a guy who wants to pass this test of time and he will be much more ready to be in a relationship with you. And the time to find out if he wants a relationship is before you have sex. Asking for commitments is much harder to sell afterward. It all comes down to this rule: require him to get to know you first.

As you get to know a guy, sometimes, he will suddenly lose interest because he doesn’t see the point in having a conversation about things that you are not compatible on. He doesn’t want what you want, and he knows it.

For your part, it’s a good rule to only fight with people you’re going to build with. Resist the urge to argue with him and if he doesn’t have the skills to communicate and negotiate with you, let him go.

Men are kind of like children, they want what they want until they get it. They lose interest in toys and they fall in love with women who require them to get to know them.

Be this type of woman. He’ll love you for it.
