I've always made it a point to be honest with my readers. Why? Because I have absolutely no reason not to be! Lying on the internet is worse than lying to your therapist. I'm sitting behind a screen, what's the worst than can happen? Are you going to leave a nasty comment on Facebook—oh, the horror. I'm going to tell you what I know (or claim to know) and you'll either like it or you won't! That's life, right?

Well, here goes—I've never used a dating app in my life. The only thing I know about Tinder is what I've been told/observed from other people, but I'm going to advise you on the subject anyway, because I'm a firm believer in the whole, "those who can't do, teach" thang. To start, I'll go ahead and rattle off some dating apps that are known for making genuine romantic connections rather than boning someone you've known for 15-minutes and never contacting them again—

Alright, now that we've covered the online dating app circuit, we can get to the good stuff—the old fashioned stuff. You know, the art of wooing a woman outside of a text message or DM. Don't roll your eyes at me. I can just tell that's what happening. I'm serious! It's entirely possible, if not completely encouraged, to step outside the digital status quo and meet someone in a REAL way. Of course, you have to be careful, so as not to appear like a creepy, cat-calling d-bag, but other than, go for it!
