Complete strangers exchange pleasantries via their smart phones in an effort to connect. After serious sparks fly as the two exaggerate their assets, they meet up, only to be disappointed, or maybe, pleasantly surprised. We live in a digital world. We spend all day with our eyes glued to our monitors at work, and then take breaks to peek at our phones until we punch out and can go home and stare at more screens all evening.
First, download the dating app. Tinder connects to your Facebook to get your name and age, as well as college and occupation if you choose to share that information. Tinder will then show you people who meet your criteria. You swipe right on the hotties, and left on the creepers.
And the best part — they only know you swiped right on them if they swiped right on you, too. If you hang out long enough in the student union, good looking, single men are bound to walk by. You strike up a conversation. Go get drinks. And it makes sense. You like the same things. You have the same friends. You live nearby. Even at my small, liberal arts college, there was a decent amount of eligible bachelors. I had too many other things to worry about. But if I wanted to, I could have. After college, I loaded my little Subaru with my prized, mostly purple possessions and set off for Orlando, Florida.
Rather than jump, I decided to crawl my way into the adult world. I got an internship writing for the Walt Disney World Resort. It was temporary, but that still counts. It was my first time living on my own, my first time living out of West Virginia.
I was surrounded by my fellow young interns. I lived in an apartment with three other women my age. We were cute, looked semi-presentable, showered daily. Instead, we spent many weekends eating snacks in our comfy pants and watching Disney movies while drinking large amounts of alcohol. OK, so I might have been the only one drinking. A word to the wise: Never try to lure a man to a bar on Disney property. Hot single guys do not vacation at Disney World.
You know who vacations there? Married men. Men with three children go to Disney World. Men in love with a Disney fanatic swallow their pride and put on Mickey ears to stroll around the parks. I was six months into my Florida life and I had zero hot dates to show for it, at least none that I was proud to share.
I was beginning to think that the only way I was going to meet Mr. Right is if he accidentally crashed his car into my apartment. In earlyI ed Tinder.
And things changed pretty quick. I started going on dates. Found out that some men still find me attractive. I could just unmatch with them on the app and try to forget their horrible propositions. I am a terrible date. This is a possible side effect of being the baby of the family with two big brothers who constantly picked on me. But what brought me to try online dating?
Well, several years ago, I lost my job, then was cheated on and dumped about three weeks later. Being single has never bothered me. I only sometimes wish that I have a boyfriend, like when my car gets buried in 2 feet of snow. But then my Mormon neighbors came to the rescue and dug me out. All the women, who are independent — throw your hands up at me! About six months ago I ed Tinder. Anna started telling me about her experiences and told me that I should.
I laughed. But no worries, mom and dad — just like men who meet me in real life, none of these guys want to go out with me either! Dating in your 30s is difficult. I mostly match with guys who areand then I feel like a creepy old lady. Many of the guys closer to my age seem to have children, and I can barely take care of myself and my cat. Womp womp. A mere six months ago, I was very frugal with my right swipes. What a time to be alive. Check back in next week. Just two grown women yakking about boys. Thank you for reading!
