By Jessica DeRubbo

Former The Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson is single and ready to mingle! The contestant we used to love to hate has moved on since her celebrity break-up with Ben Flajnik on the reality TV show, and just recently got out of another relationship and love that stemmed from Tinder. According to, Robertson met a “normal guy,” Adam, on Tinder and they started dating right after they met. Now, though, she says, “I’m single and I’m happy. I have love in my life, and I have great people in my life. And I’m not rushing that part of my life.” She also said, “Ummm, I don’t think I’ll be back on Tinder anytime soon. I’ll just put it that way!”

This former Bachelor star found love on Tinder. What are some drawbacks to using Tinder to get dates?

Cupid’s Advice:

Tinder and other dating apps are sometimes a good way to meet new people, but other times it’s best to explore other avenues. Cupid has some things to be wary of when it comes to Tinder:

1. Unclear expectations: Tinder originally debuted as a hook-up app. It’s since evolved into both a hook-up and dating app, but the line is grey and it can be hard to tell whether a person you’re going to meet up with is looking for friendship, a date, or intimate relations.

2. Fake profiles: Tinder especially has been known for harboring fake profiles. It’s very easy to create one, and a lot of people think it’s a funny thing to play with. By using the app, you’re opening yourself up to possible deception.

3. Lack of romance: There’s no reason to let go of romantic notions and desires, and Tinder can sometimes strip that away. If you are traditional and want to be sought after, this type of app will not facilitate that.
