So I thought i’d give online dating ago seen as i’m clearly a pretty shit example of dating in real life… Welcome to TINDER
I don’t know what I was expecting of Tinder, I just knew you could swipe left or right so that’s what I did and there was not a lot of ‘right’ swiping but plenty of ‘left’ swipes. I got a few ‘superlike’ (go me) but then I decided to change my bio to “not interested in one night stands just fun and banter” and suddenly I wasn’t as liked (yep TINDER = how may times you can get your leg over lads!). I’m sure there must be some genuine lads on there but believe me I struggled.
I spoke to this one lad who was ok, but I soon realised that he wasn’t what he said he was (and looked nothing like his bio picture) anyway he saw his arse when I said I didn’t want to meet up with him…so that ended pretty quick. At the same time I was talking to this other lad who was a bit younger than me and all he wanted to do was talk about his mate? this made me realise that lads can be so immature. Also a lad came up that I knew (awkward especially as I knew he already had a girlfriend and he was the best mate of one of my ex’s who had actually made a play for me too when I was younger!)
Then came off it for a while but then thought i’d give it a go again and chatted with a nice lad from Hull, we got on fine but when we met up there just wasn’t the spark which was a shame but that’s life people come and go!
I’m still not sure if Tinder is my thing but I’ve come to realise that there is no such thing as just meeting Mr Right on your doorstep at the minute everything is done in the unreal world of social media.
So what do I look for in a lad?
*Someone who is nice, *someone who is loyal*, *someone who has a good sense of humour*, *someone who has a nice smile*, *someone who doesn’t overthink*, *someone who can speak honestly* *someone who doesn’t play girls off against each other* *someone who doesn’t give up on me*, basically *SOMEONE WHO WANTS ME IN THEIR LIFE FOR JUST BEING MYSELF*
So the search goes on, who knows if i’ll ever find Mr Right (I thought I had done ready but that all went tits up) there’s not rush though as it’s more important that I find myself right now.
~Love is not something you go out and look for. Love finds you and when it does ready or not it will be the best thing that ever happened to you~
