The more I try to give Tinder a chance,the more I realize it’s just not for someone like me. In fact, the most exciting thing about Tinder is scrolling the profiles to swipe left or right, and the short-lived excitement when you see the “it’s a match!” message flash across the screen.
My latest Tinder experience included a match with a handsome guy who stated in his caption that he was interested in making friends and a relationship (if it happens). He enjoyed quite a few things that I also love to do,so I was pleased when I saw he had also swiped right for my profile. He wrote me within ten minutes of my swipe.
Him: “Hi beautiful”
Me: “Hi! How are you?”
Him: “I’m okay beautiful. What you up to?”
(Mind you,it’s almost 1 am)
Me: “Lying in bed getting some writing done. You?”
Him: “you should come lie in bed with me”
*Side eye followed by major eye roll*
Me: “I don’t even know you lol”
Him: “come get to know me. I’ll send you my address.”
Me: “sir do you know what time it is? I don’t go to people’s homes at this time of night, nor do I go to homes of strangers”
Him: “that’s too bad. You’re sexy as f*ck”
(That message was followed up by him removing me as a match immediately.)
So much for meeting new people and possibilities of a relationship. I guess in Tinder land that really means “let’s have sex on the first night”.
