I've started seeing an adult I met on Tinder

Your Question

I met someone through tinder and we met and spend the most amazing time together, he is an adult, but I have never felt more alive in my life. I really like him and the butterflies are really there when I think about him. I am so happy!!!!!


Hi there, 

Many thanks for getting in touch with Ask Alex with how you are feeling. 

You have said that you have met someone on tinder and he is an adult and you are so happy. 

It is great that you are happy, it is important that you are also safe. We are not sure what age you are but meeting people online, on apps such as tinder should be done with caution. Make sure you are safe by letting other people know where you are going and who you are seeing.
