Sharing your WhatsApp, when is the right time?

When we start talking to someone on a dating website we try to figure out if that person is what we're looking for. There're some aspects that we consider more important than others.

Giving our phone number is a whole new level, or at least it seems to be like for most people. Why? Because when you chat with someone on a dating website you can use a nickname and you feel "safe", but when you decide to share your cellphone number you're giving them a piece of true information about yourself.

When someone has your number they can call you anytime they want and that can be great and useful, but also a nightmare if that person turns out not to be what you were expecting.

Is it the same for girls and boys? We're all about gender equality, but the statistics show that girls are much more resistant to share their number than boys.

 

What about you, when do you feel like sharing your whatsapp number? Instantly? After I realize we share the same values, it could take weeks? After a couple of days? It depends on the person and the conversation? Or you wouldn't ever share your whatsapp?

Tinder: Dating in the 21st Century

Online dating came almost hand in hand with the Internet, but with the arrival of Tinder in September 2012 it became more popular. By 2014 the company stated that they’ve had about one billion swipes and around 12 million matches per day, Tinder was the first dating app to incorporate the swiping system, this feature allows users to select other people by their photos, just sliding them to the left or right (dislike or like, respectively), from this, if the other user swipe us right, then a match occurs, is the only way to know if anyone is interested in us (except if we already decided to pay for a premium feature, in this case it’s called Tinder Gold).

To be successful during the use of the app is recomendable to complete our profile and include good photos of us, show to other users who we are, always remember, our profile is our cover letter and Tinder is based on the impact we trigger on others.

Over the years, Tinder decided to incorporate new features (not all of them are for free) among them you can find:

  • Spotify: emerged from an agreement between the two companies, allows us to teach our musical tastes with other users, associating both accounts. It also gives us the chance to choose "our hymn", that song that identifies us and even shows how we are or even how we feel.
  • Moments: it was a function that allowed us to share photos during 24 hours, some kind of Instagram stories’ style. Those images were only available for your matches. It was active until November 2015.
  • Super Like: implemented in late 2015, lets users let know someone else that they “like" them. This feature can only be used once per 24 hours for regular users and six times per day for premium users.

  • Tinder Gold: is an exclusive service for paid memberships, it includes Tinder Plus services and other new features such as: passport (allows us to interact with people from other cities), rewind (turn back users after “disliking” them by mistake), unlimited likes, total control over your profile (hide distance and/or age) and the newest feature that allow us to know who is interested in us even before matching with them!
  • Tinder Select: is the "secret" version of Tinder, only available for celebrities and people with a lot of success in the dating app.
  • Boost: this feature allows us to “highlight” our profile for thirty minutes in our area. You will need to buy each “boost”, but if you are already subscribed on Tinder Plus, you will get one boost per month for free.
  • Groups: it gives us the possibility to create with (at least) a Facebook’s friend a “group”, then you can match with another group to go out all together!
  • Smart photos: using algorithms, Tinder chooses the best photo to help you to get more matches!
  • Tinder Online: The web browser friendly version of the app, it allows you to keep in touch with your matches or even meet new ones without needing to use your smartphone. It is still being tested in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Canada and Mexico.

Grab your smartphone, download the app from the App Store,

then enjoy the wonderful Tinder experience!

What does the future hold for you?


I’m not the kind of person who thinks that whatever your horoscope says is irrefutable truth. However, I’ve learnt how to take what I need from reading my horoscope, birth chart, tarot, etc. I strongly believe in science, and astrology is science after all! 


Do you know which animal you’re in Chinese zodiac? Just in case you’re not sure, you can check below, depending on the year you were born:


During this year, there’re a lot of possibilities to transcend our “Tao” (Path). If we’re conscious about our karma, our free will makes us humans different from other species. It’s important to know well the concept of karma: Karma is the universal principle of cause and effect. Whatever we do come back to us in the future, so if we act kindly to others, we will receive kindness too. But if we’re greedy, selfish or envious, that’s what we’ll be suffering then.
Now if you ask me, I’m not 100% sure this is completely correct, because sometimes bad things happen to good people. But one thing is sure: If the concept of karma helps us be better people, then it’s something good to believe in.

 

The following predictions are related to love, pleasure, personal goals, romantic relationships, according to Chinese Zodiac:

Rat

Rats never miss a chance. They enjoy everything to the fullest. They’re likeable and social and they can make you fall in love with them.

Ox

Oxen know that life can test them and that’s difficult and full of obstacles. Their patient will be their most valuable quality for love this year.

Tiger

The ferocity of the tigers is in check this year, and they will show their vulnerable side, humbly.

Rabbit

Rabbits are a dual zodiac. Ying-yang. They have a lot of natural superpowers: their charisma is one of them, and also their sense of humor.

Dragon

The dragon is the king of the sky, he represent the holy power. They have the innate capacity of leadership, and that will be shown when they relate to other people romantically.

Snake

The snake is an object of veneration for is beauty in the East. The Snake and its karmic brother (the Dragon) are the zodiacs that will not reincarnate anymore, and that’s why the will experience it all, they won’t leave any kind of challenge for later.

Horse

Horses are known and loved for their free spirit, spontaneity and courage. They’re charismatic, beautiful and genuine. That will help them this year with love.

Sheep

Good news for sheep: after years of giving their best, they’ll get their reward. They will feel like wings grow from their skin and they can finally start flying.

Monkey

Monkeys will get back their perseverance: it’s a good time for them to finish what they once started and focus on their plans. They will have chances to show the world that they can be excellent leaders.

Rooster

It’s true that roosters often get angry for no reason, and sometimes that can affect their relationships with other people. It’s a good year for them to find other ways to calm down without letting their anger affect how they treat their loved ones. They’re able to do it.

Dog

Dogs are possessive. They have their own moral rules and they respect them. They’re probably the most loyal zodiac. If a dog is friends with you, they will never let you down.

Pig

Pigs tend to be shy and that’s why it’s hard for them to show what they really want. That can affect their romantic relationship. They save their feeling and then what they feel it’s too much to take. This year is perfect for them to try to speak their minds more often and not worry so much about what others may think.


So next time you have a date with someone you knew on Tinder, you can try to predict their future to break the ice! LOL!
