1. Everyone you went to high school with
Ever wonder what your buddies have been up to since high school? Hooking up with people on Tinder of course! Tinder is a harsh way to find out that your classmates are still getting stoned and working at the same pizza shop they were at in high school. You quickly swipe left only to see another of your classmateswho also works at the same pizza shop. After contemplation, you may swipe right. Perhaps you arent employed at a pizza shop but you are still living in your hometown and flipping through Tinderare you really any better? Old habits die hard, right? One more trip behind the stadium cant hurt.

2. TOFTB Girl (Tits Out For the Boys)
The montage of cleavage on her profile exceeds the number of cracks on Lorain Avenue. But dont you dare compliment her knockers; she just thought it was a good picture of her eyes for Christs sake. (Photo via HyperXP.com, Flickr CC)
3. He Who Justifies the Shirtless Pic
Looks do not deceive. Beneath the shirtless pic is a bio that reads I know what this looks like but Im a really good guy looking for someone to care about. I swear Im really not a douche. Sorry dude, if you have to clarify that youre not a douche, chances are, youre a douche.

4. The Machine Gun Kelly Fan
His profile has quotes from MGK songs about a rough life growing up in Cleveland. Meanwhile, he is feeding his hamsters at his parents house in Westlake. Better Lace Up if you swipe right for this one. (Photo by Jacob Giampa)
5. The Short Guy
Have pity on the short guy. If the Short Guy or even the Guy of Moderate Height is honest about their size, the average tinder girl will take off like the Rapid. See next slide for additional insight.

6. The Picky Girl
This person has high standards, which is ironic considering she has resorted to an app to find a mate. Beware, whatever carefree Audrey Hepburn quote she uses in her bio to come off as low-maintenance is a façade. Deeper digging will reveal that her ideal partner must prefer Pepsi to Coke, enjoy shopping, and be 66. But, she supposes she could settle for taller.

7. The Superstar
You come across someone who is Cleveland famoussomeone in a local band, a tumblr personality, or a SCENE writerand one of two things happen:
1. You swipe right and begin to imagine how you will tell people you are dating a famous person
2. You are swiping left so fast that you dont realize who it is until their profile (literally) slipped out of your hands. Melancholy overcomes you. That one swipe could have changed your life but now you will never be Mr./Mrs. Cleveland Big Shot.
8. The Guy with the Big Fish
Inexplicably, lots of Cleveland guys on Tinder are pictured holding big fish. But just like big trucks, big muscles, and big egos, holding up big fish is merely another giveaway that something else is small. (Patrick Lewis, Flickr CC)
9. The Last Call
When East 4th street fails, count on Tinder to find that not-so-special somebody at 2:00 a.m. The Last Calls go swipe happy. They dont want to be alone when Closing Time comes on. But theyre in for a rude awakening when they find out beer goggles are not exclusive to real-life people, they apply to online photos as well. (Photo via Sarah Sphar, Flickr CC)
