OMG! It is so awkward seeing people you know on dating sites! Haley said it best on LadyLike: “Online Dating is something that we ALL do, but pretend that we don’t!” And you know what? I like it that way…let’s continue to pretend like none of us do it! No one needs to know about your Tinder or Hot or Not profile. *snaps in Z formation* You better hide that app! Lol And if you meet someone online and y’all actually hit it off, just tell everyone that y’all met at Chipotle or the library! *Kanye shrugs* The MOST awkward thing is seeing a classmate on a dating site because at that moment you realize that they’ve probably seen your profile too! So it’s like this unspoken code to mutually pretend like it didn’t happen! *sprinkles invisibility dust* A friend of mine once saw her professor on Tinder…..yep, she skipped that class for a week! LOL!
I think this is everyone’s biggest fear about online dating. It’s scary meeting up with someone who you know nothing about! If you haven’t been warned, then let me be the first, there are people out there who may want to hurt you! I just want you to be safe. So here are a few tips: Don’t give out your address or full name! Meet in a public place! Let a friend know that you are doing something slightly reckless! BUT don’t let this scare you out of dating, for every crazy guy, there has to be at least one nice guy….right?
I have a bad habit of casually giving out my number, and I regret it .25 seconds later. The guy that instantly text you after you send them your number on a site almost annoy me more than the guys at the bar that call the number you gave them in front of you to make sure it’s right. *Side-note: why do guys do that? If I gave you a wrong number, then I’m not interested and you calling me out isn’t going to fix that.* It’s not like you can get back that drink you bought me! *Kanye shrugs and gets back on topic* So anyways, back when Facebook was the place to meet your significant other, I unfortunately gave my number to a stage 5 clinger. This one day, I went downstairs to eat dinner with my family, came back upstairs to my phone and I had 9 missed calls, 2 voicemails, and 13 text messages! Where was blocking number back then? *sighs* #leavemealone #givemespace
Never Went Away
Seeing your ex on a dating site is bitter sweet! Because you’re like: “HAHA I’m the best you ever had ya jerk!” But then you remember that you’re on the site so…*cricket cricket* Do NOT accept your ex on a site, block homeboy if you can! *snaps in Z formation*
Luckily, I’ve never had to deal with a Catfish! *twirls* But we have all heard the stories: You think you’re talking to a 23 year-old man, but you’re really having a conversation with a 60 year old woman. #stopthat It happens, so if you’re really interested then do your research! #stalkthatman
Have you ever been on a date that is so bad that it makes you miss being alone? Lol like the other person’s company made you rethink how bad being an old, single, catlady would really be? Well… that’s how 80% of online dating meet-ups go! A while ago I went on a Tinder date, and the guy was horrible. Within the first few minutes I was repulsed. BUT he was paying for my dinner, and I didn’t meal prep so I decided to stick it through. When I don’t like people, it’s obvious so I decided to try to talk less so I wouldn’t unwillingly offend him. Do guys like that? Because the quieter that I was, the more he talked and flirted! Lol I don’t think he realized that I couldn’t have cared less. But it’s ok…because three margaritas into the date I was boldly Tinder swiping in front of him! Lol #oops #neversawhimagain
So an old friend of mine recently broke-up with her boyfriend of 2 years because she found his dating site profile. Lol this guy went out of his way to make one! He had to make a fake Facebook page with a new name to get a Tinder. So yes…. that man went out of his way to cheat on you! *Kanye shrugs* The first question I ask on a date is: “So…. are you married?” Lol that’s sad, but it needs to be done! None wants to be the accidental home-wrecker! #nonono
