WARNING. I AM A GRAMMAR NAZY.
*OK this is very out of context but Spotify just decided to play the Glee version of The Winner Takes it All and I’m in total bliss because holy gods this is one hell of a good song*
I start this by saying that I have absolutely nothing against people who use dating apps, whether it’s for dating, serious relationships, or casual hookups. Be free, House Elves.
I used to think that dating apps were idiot magnets. Maybe it’s because of that Zack and Cody Sweet Life on Deck episode where they tried to hook Mr. Mosebey and Emma Tutweiler up. I was just like *omg this is ridiculous* during the entire episode.
Anyway, I’ve downloaded Tinder because I guess it’s time for me to start dating, and I’m not really going to do that from the comfort of my home without the help of the internet, and people have been telling me it’s not that bad, and that nothing could possibly be as bad as Grindr. I absolutely believe the latter. Definitely. Grindr? That… thing didn’t even last 10 seconds on my phone before I deleted the crap out of it.
So here I am, figuring the app out, writing out my profile, and starting to swipe. First pic, the guy was fine, but I wanted to see his profile, what he wrote. I mean, that’s the important part for me. Oh, the horrors.
I’m sorry, but just don’t write “Moïse à écarté la mer noire, je ferai de même avec tes jambes.” (Translation: “Moses separated the black sea, I will do the same with your legs.”)
First of all, it’s “a”, not “à”.
Second of all, it was the red sea, not the bloody black one which is situated right next to bloody Russia.
Third of all, this sentence is so unoriginal that Hollywood would’ve thought it brilliant.
Fourth of all, just plain EW?!
The guy almost had me uninstall the app on the spot, I swear. But I persevered. I swiped left.
A girl? I could’ve sworn I’d set my discovery thing to men only. My thumb went faster than a bullet and swiped left.
After that, I found the app kinda nice. Swiping right and left is actually fun. Too bad some people don’t write anything on their profiles. I swipe left because how the heck am I supposed to know about you to like you? If all you put up is your pics, it’s as if your were making a statement that looks are the most important thing, or that you’re only looking for “Netflix and Chill’s”. There’s nothing wrong with that, but there are people (me included) who aren’t looking for that.
So yeah. There are good sides and ba… *I just got my first match omg* and bad sides to Tinder. I guess I’ll just wait it out and see if it’s good.
*Aw the match guy lives in another province and I hadn’t noticed how high my distance was in the discovery thing whatashame*
