Tinder is all the rage these days. Some people view it a dating site, some as a hookup site, but most people would agree that it's a fun game. Don't like? Swipe left. Like what you see? Swipe right.

Find out what your Tinder swipe style says about you.

You actually read the profiles

You're looking for more than just a hookup. You are not interested in chatting up a guy who has less than 10 brain cells. You are looking for someone you can really connect and relate to. But on the flip side, if a cute guy has nothing in his profile, your interest is piqued, so you swipe right just to find out more.

You accidentally nope a hot guy

Tinder is a game, an addictive one at that. And sometimes you get so caught up in the fun and seeing nope swipe across people's foreheads that you get into a groove. Most times there's a smile on your face, that turns into a WTF? when you accidentally swipe left on a potential cutie.

You never message anyone first

You're old fashioned (or insecure). You don't think you should have to message someone first because you're the girl and they're the guy. It's an outdated way of thinking. If you're digging the guy, go for it. It takes two seconds to send a hello with a smiley face. If you're "shy" and you just don't know what to say, step outside the box. The first step was already done for you by Tinder, the feelings are mutual; send that message.

You swipe left anytime there is more than one person in the profile picture

You don't have time for games. Tinder is more of a game than a dating site. It takes the fun away when you have to dig deep to try to figure out which guy owns the profile. The main picture should always be of you by yourself. If it's not, chances are they aren't the best pick of the bunch, or they are just too lazy to update their profile picture.

So what's your Tinder style? What do you use it for? Looking for love, or just passing time?
