Lessons Learnt.

So my dudes, I thought I’d start a section on here for lessons that I have not only learnt, but also lessons I have taught to others. This can act as an advice guide for both you and your dates, and hopefully serve as a reminder to one and all that sometimes we need toContinue reading “Lessons Learnt.”

The One Where I Was The Bad Date – Tinder.

I guess sometimes things don’t work out because I’m the bad date. Bad might even be a bit of a stretch, but bad is also how I would describe this. I don’t think I’m perfect, and I know that I can be a bit of a pain, but this story is definitely a rarity, asContinue reading “The One Where I Was The Bad Date – Tinder.”

The One With The Catfishing Accusation. – Hinge

When choosing dating app photos, I generally try and choose the same things. A selfie or two – usually with nice subtle makeup, good lighting or a filter; a photo with my dog, a photo with a group of friends from some kind of formal event, a photo of me solo at another formal event.Continue reading “The One With The Catfishing Accusation. – Hinge”

The One With the Many Accidental Encounters.

So sometimes I have encounters with the opposite sex that aren’t on apps and that occur in real life. I am a very awkward person and from all of these scenarios I have walked away feeling guilty and uncomfortable for one reason or another. I also constantly feel like Chandler Bing, waiting to find hisContinue reading “The One With the Many Accidental Encounters.”

The One Who Couldn’t Kiss – Tinder.

So, I know what you’re thinking. Everyone is used to something – whether that be the way they kiss, the way they hug, the way they’re used to doing their washing, the way they’re used to walking around the house in their underwear… We’re all used to things being a certain way. And I know,Continue reading “The One Who Couldn’t Kiss – Tinder.”

The One Where I Had to be The Bitch. – Happn

Sometimes the situation just calls for it. This is another story of how lying bites you in the arse, especially if you’re not aware of a connection that would catch you in the middle of said lie. I always advocate for a truthful, honest approach but I guess that’s not the highest of priorities forContinue reading “The One Where I Had to be The Bitch. – Happn”

The One Who “Wasn’t Ready.” – Hinge.

Yeah, look (listen)… This one is a bit sadder than it is funny or amusing. And I’m not proud of this one because I had real feelings invested and real hurt feelings from a story I plan to tell in future that influenced this situation. But I’m choosing to tell it, and to tell itContinue reading “The One Who “Wasn’t Ready.” – Hinge.”

The One Who Tried to Insult Me into Liking Him. – Bumble.

So, for another short, bad app instalment, we’re going back to 2016 and to my first encounter on Bumble. For those who are unfamiliar, Bumble is an app where (in heterosexual matches) women are supposed to make the first move. You have 24 hours after you match to say something, and they have 24 hoursContinue reading “The One Who Tried to Insult Me into Liking Him. – Bumble.”

The One with the Aggressive Opener – Tinder.

Let’s jump ahead a little to break up the bad dates and tell the story of a really bad dating app experience. It was late 2016, I was back on Tinder after another stint off it and I was swiping late at night after a particularly shitty shift at work. It was about 5am andContinue reading “The One with the Aggressive Opener – Tinder.”

The One with the Poem. – Tinder

Did anyone ever write poetry for class or homework in primary school and write about a cool thing they saw their dog do, or what they saw on Lizzie McGuire the week before? Because same. My standards for, and understanding of, poetry have always been a bit flimsy- if not non-existent. I appreciate sonnets, IContinue reading “The One with the Poem. – Tinder”
