Over the past two years I have been a keen swipper on multiple dating apps (I’m guessing you can guess which ones) but in October last year I deleted them all and decided that they really are not for me. I spent so much of my time scrolling through hundreds of guys who 8 times out of 10 were only really after one thing! Now I do know people who have actually gone on successful dates and who have actually got into relationships from these apps, but I have never been that successful! At the height of it I had over 500 matches. Maybe it is because I find it hard to message people and I must admit I can be a bit blunt sometimes but I did try so hard with my messages. The fact that I know people who have got dates did always give me a little bit of hope that I could maybe find someone by when the usual convocation goes like this it’s a bit off putting….
Him: Hey there
Him: So what do you do?
Me: I’m a Dance student at university 🙂
Him: Oh wow you must be really flexible then;)
Creepy right!! Like come on let’s find some originality! It’s pretty obvious that if I’m a dance student then I’m going to be at least a little flexible!! That aside I have also had my fair share of god awful chat up lines such as…
Is your last name Jacobs?
Because your a cracker?
Now I did give these kind of guys a bit of a reply just for their comic efforts which sometimes came as light relief. But then there is comic effort and just plain strange and weird such as the time a guy popped up with…
I want to spank you like a naughty avocado!!
Umm okay because that’s not creepy at all and out of all fruit and veg why spank an avocado?? And why is it naughty?? So many questions after I got that one!! I have no idea how he even though that that was a good chat up line because any sane person would not reply to that!!But all in all I am so glad that I gave up the many dating apps not just because I no longer have to deal with the creepy guys and their strange chat up lines or try to compose a decent convocation with a stranger, but because things are looking up for me in the guy area and I’m interested to see where it will go…
So there you go a bit of a different blog post, I hope you find I vaguely interesting..
Thanks for reading.
