I wanted to write about something completely relatable to a lot of young adults these days. What is it you might ask? Well it’s this app called “tinder.” When I first heard about it, I thought it was ridiculous and somewhat creepy. But then I started to hear very interesting stories from this lovely little dating distraction. So then I caved and downloaded it. I know it’s been around for a good while but I knew I had to get it and see what all the fuss was about for myself.
Nowadays, it’s already hard enough to “date” someone in your twenties considering no one has even heard of the four letter word or wants nothing to do with being in a relationship. Don’t get me wrong, there are gentleman out there who do want settle down and go out to eat and not just to a bar where you’re constantly downing drinks or taking shots the whole night.
I was pretty surprised on the conversations I was having with several of the men. Some were nice and genuine and then others were just in it for the night if you get my jist. A few of the gentlemen actually kept up a conversation with me and even kept texting after I mentioned I have a cat…now that’s a keeper in my books! Anyways, there are certain types of guys on tinder and I thought I should share one of my very first experiences on it.
My first debacle had to do with a man in the military. This gentleman seemed down to earth while communicating in the beginning but then after we started texting, everything hit the fan. The conversation started to get needy and escalated very quickly. This guy over here wanted to “cuddle” and hangout not in a public place for the first time. I tried suggesting Starbucks or anything else besides a house or apartment or alone with this guy but that DID NOT WORK. It had gone on for several days and no I did not respond to any of his messages. He even texted me once in the middle of the night asking if I was awake…ummm no?! That was the end of that situation.
You’re probably like wow she probably got off tinder..no I did not. I almost did though then I saw some good looking southern gentleman who actually wanted to go out on a date and get to know each other. Some I do have mutual friends with and similar interests so it’s not too weird. Let’s hope nothing bad happens and I don’t make it home afterwards but we all have one of those nights..wait what?! I’m so funny I tried to make a joke. If you’re brave and ballsy enough like me then you should totally try it out even just to make a new friend or maybe even get a boyfriend…I mean anything can happen!
