The world of online dating is, to put it mildly, and interesting place. It's not bad enough to be single and looking for love, but you're now forced to contend with Catfishers, people only interested in obtaining naked pictures of you, and people so bizarre that their dating profiles are filled to the brim with a red flag after red flag.
And while these days there are a plethora of dating sites and apps to choose from, there are some that have a better reputation for the odds of finding true love than others. Tinder tends to be at the bottom of the barrel and is more associated with random hook-ups than meeting your soulmate. But, after seeing the following 30 profiles, you might change your mind about this divisive app.
These Tinder profiles range from hilarious to creative to genuinely sweet, and they might just be enough to make you happy about being single. Or, at least, less horrendously depressed about it.

This dark yet relatable statement
This honest jokesterNot only does this guy promise not to kill you, he also includes a hilariously tasteless joke to prove what a great sense of humor he has. He's the whole package!
This accomplished fellow
This disturbed doggo
This disobedient AlexaHaving a name like "Alexa" in this day and age can't be easy. The constant jokes would be enough to drop the "a" at the end altogether.
This creative daterAfter reading this list, I'm pretty darn irritated by the complete lack of creativity my previous dates have brought to the table. Sure, faking a kidnapping in public is probably a pretty terrible idea, but just think of what a rush it would be!
This awesome sense of humor
This fortunate name spellingAlthough I happen to have the same name as this poor woman, mine is smelled in the normal, smart way as opposed to this....alternative spelling. Luckily, Emelly is still able to find gratitude in the little things.
This twist endingWe've all been there, friend. No judgment here.
This clumsy collageThis is heartbreaking to watch, and yet, I can't look away. At least he's setting your expectations low so if this happens on your first date you won't be surprised.
This bad girl
This good samaritanDoesn't this story just bring a tear to your eye? Seriously, though, most people wouldn't even have helped her put the groceries back. You're on your own, Grandma!
This super fanThis woman's family is clearly not accepting of her chosen life partner. Honestly, there are worse people she could be choosing to spend her life with than a cardboard cutout of Danny Devito. Like a professional DJ.
