It can be exhausting to read through someone's profile and develop a crush on them, only to discover in their match questions that they think women who've slept with a lot of men are "sluts." Yuck.
I'm not suggesting everyone on Tinder is intentionally deceptive; it's just an unfortunate reality that online dating often attracts hordes of people who want a quick lay, and will lie about their intentions to get it.
Even if someone genuinely does want a relationship, he or she could easily get distracted by the multiple people knocking at their metaphorical door. Disclaimer: I am not saying that all men on dating apps are sexist, or that women can't also exhibit their fair share of sexism.
It may seem like the two of you are on the path to love, but real intimacy takes tons of time and trust to build, so be cautious of falling for someone too quickly (as I have done on countless occasions).
The unfortunate (and unnecessary) stigma surrounding STIs mixed with the fast and often casual nature of online dating is not a good combination.
If you hit it off with someone immediately, it can be easy to get over-excited about your romantic future, which can lead to feelings developing at an abnormal pace.
