I sometimes see guys on Tinder that I’ve matched with before because when you delete the app then re-download it (5th time lucky for me!!) it wipes any history and your dating pool is replenished. Thank god for that, right?
I had seen Steve a few times on Tinder and more recently Happn so I decided it was about time we went for a drink. I also noticed that we had a mutual friend which always seems to make things less creepy. Speaking of creepy, please excuse the time that I sent my first message, it was a Wednesday night (not typical for a booty call) and I had insomnia. He seemed normal enough, he was tall AF, and there I was thinking, “This’ll be funny, a fellow veteran of Tinder, imagine the lols!” Not quite.
So a grown man was basically throwing a tantrum because a) I wasn’t available at an hours’ notice, and b) I wouldn’t go over to his place for an initial meeting. Is this real life?
Obviously he was trying to say that you can tell if a person is a reputable human being by the photos they upload on Tinder. Um, I’m sorry what? Just because you opted for a picture of you on the beach doesn’t make you a non-serial killer. Although I suppose if you were posing with a dead corpse I may have my suspicions… My point is you can’t tell shit about someone from their pics. Dumbest statement ever, made even dumber by the misspell.
Shortly after this exchange he unmatched me, never to be seen again. Oh, except through our mutual friend on Facebook! May as well hit her up and find out how she knows this freak. Turns out she had dated him a couple of times last year and she offered this insight; “He didn’t seem too bad. A little keen but harmless enough”. So he WASN’T a serial killer?? Dammit did I just lose my one chance at true love? Ah well, plenty more dregs in the sea, all aboard the Tinder Train to continue my journey!
