    Is it as straightforward as simply asking them about why they are using the dating app?

    I ask because I have been in a situation in the past where I matched with someone on Tinder, assuming they were looking for a relationship, only to find out later that they were just looking for friendship.

    Hi Aaliyah,

    You should never assume that a person you match with on a dating app is looking for the same kind of relationship you are.

    You should always ask them early on about what they are looking for and if they let you know that they are looking for the same type of relationship, make sure that you pay close attention to how they behave from then on to better determine whether they were being honest about that.

    The last thing you want is to invest a bunch of time in someone only to find out months later that all they ever wanted was a friendship or to hook up.
