15 People You Will Meet on Tinder in Dallas

By Amy McCarthy & Jaime-Paul Falcon It's hard out there for the single people in Dallas to find a worthy date. After you've exhausted the pool at OkCupid, done a few speed dating events, and struck out at every bar in Dallas, the handheld meat-market that is Tinder is a particularly attractive option. More of you than ever are swiping left and right until Cupid's arrow strikes after having a few too many drinks, which means that there is a ripe pool of also-drunk people who are single and ready to e-mingle whenever you're down.

Of course, that also means that there are certain types of people that you meet on an app that chooses a match based on what a person's face looks like. This list of the 15 types of weirdos, freaks, and semi-normal people that you're most likely to find on Dallas-Fort Worth Tinder is highly scientific. We rigorously tested our theories by adding the app to our phones, drinking a lot, and swiping like we were trying to decide between having Uber hit Taco Cabana, or just take us straight home. Take a look, see if you recognize yourself, and if you do, well at least you know that you are not alone.
