I was already imagining suggesting tea and scones at nearby Alice's Tea Cup when the Brit dreamboat got back to me one day later: "Thanks! I'm just traveling here for a couple days." I typed a polite "You're welcome," a little crushed.It turns out, according to Pambakian, Tinder is commonly used as a travel guide.

I also doubted, after a while, people really read what I wrote. As forward as his message was (Did he want to hang out with me already?!

So I filled out my profiles honestly, noting in each I was not looking to date, "only make friends :)." This practice got trickier on more information-intensive apps—I literally responded to Coffee Meets Bagel's "I like it when my date…" query with a "doesn't want to date me. But Laurie Davis, author of and an online dating consultant, later told me that strategy was all wrong: Being direct was the kiss of death.

"If you're looking for friends, I would just not write anything about that until the very end if they ask you a question about it," she said. "On OKCupid, they ask you 'you should message me if…' and I would say something really casual there like, 'You think having a drink would be fun.' Use words like 'fun,' which is an indicator of more for social than anything else." She didn't have a lot of faith in my whole friend-getting scheme, really.

And he wasn't the only one who ghosted me after the big reveal.
