The app works similar to Tinder in that you set parameters regarding age and location of your ideal match. To back that up, I will tell you as a girl with a boyfriend in high school, having a supportive, communicative, respectful, and loving relationship has taught me some good and bad things about myself, and has given me a best friend for my high school years, and I wouldn't take it back to not have him. I had friends and family around me who I could hang out with. Still, the experience is far from meaningless. If IT is getting the experience of a bonding at some level with the person you date, then this experience will be valuable worth the time spent later on in life. Do I regret not dating in high school? That winter, my youth group had a lock-in and one of my really close friends who was 2 years older than me and so had already graduated high school came to help out. Swipe right on matches you're interested in, left on those you're not, and if a mutual match is made, you're connected and able to start talking. Be cautious of people using fake profiles Many dating apps have started to implement sign-up parameters to prevent fake profiles, such as requiring login through a social media platform or giving users the option to be verified. This causes the matches on both sides male and female to be considered more closely, and makes it much less superficial. I had previously talked to her about my crush and my decision not to date in high school.
