Dating App Disasters…

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

Me: Hey!

Him: So what do you do?

Me: I’m a Dance student at university πŸ™‚

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.

  1. I don’t know if I should laugh or be offended by some of these guys-it is so hard to know if someone is joking, using sarcasm or has a true fetish on some of these apps! Good for you in going for some good old face time with a real human. My kids are in their 20’s and have refused to engage on these sites because of horror stories from their friends (have a son and a daughter, and the guys get weirded out too!)
    Good luck and stay safe!!

  2. Funny and unreal at the same time….some people. I’m with dtills and have mixed emotions of whether it is funny or just rude and inconsiderate how people behave at times. Sometimes it’s all fun and games until it happens to you and we have to remember how we affect others. Glad you are ok.

      1. I really think they believe they are being very original though. I just don’t have the heart to tell them I’ve heard it dozens of times before!
