Yikes. In my personal opinion, I'd rather wait for the right person in real life. There are dangerous people out there in the Internet, OP. Chances are, you also could've been catfished. I'm really sorry that happened to you and I hope that never happens again.
#9 I understand your concern. In fact, I feel that way myself. But you don't have to put yourself in a dangerous situation when you meet someone through the Internet. There are all sorts of public places to meet at in nearby cities or towns, apps you can communicate through (you would never have to give them your actual phone number that way), and then if you don't like them or turns out they didn't actually look like their pictures, you can politely decline them and move on. You don't have to put yourself in a dangerous situation. It really is up to you.
Tinder is pretty terrible. Try okcupid. I had a couple of decent dates from there =)
I used OkCupid for a while and just got weird messages from people who wanted a fuckdate on their business trip, guys looking for girls for a threesome with his girlfriend and above all stalkers, who made me feel uncomfortable walking around in public. I also just found like 3 guys who were looking good enough for meeting them but they lived too far away. I guess you just have to find the right dating platform that fits you and your needs.
