Tinder has never been this active before.
Maybe it’s because I kept changing my age range and swiping, that I’ve expanded my tinder pool, but the matches are pouring in. I’m not trying to show off or anything, I’m just genuinely surprised.
A couple guys have said hello and started with some small talk. A couple I’ve deleted after receiving vulgar messages and for some I’ve initiated with my classic “Hey *insert name* 😊” or if I’m feeling lazy a copied and pasted “Hey 😊”
Usually guys simply reply with a Hey how are you or some other more interesting version of that. I like the replies that say i’m beautiful 😌 This one guy replied- “where’s that cheeky smile come from 😜!” I had no idea what to say so just replied “from my face lol” Didn’t hear from him again… Didn’t care either.
Ahh well you win some you lose some.
Anyways so yeah I’m feeling kind of overwhelmed. It’s good in the sense that it’s distracting me from talking to Mr X as I told him he has the silent treatment because he hurt my feelings. He didn’t actually hurt them, he simply accused me of being addicted to sex. I should’ve typed out 1,000,000 rolling eyes emojis and crashed his phone by sending them. Surely you gotta be having a lot of sex to be an addict right? Shoooot, if I was an addict I’d be having sex right now.
His response to me saying he’s got the silent treatment was:
“That’s okay because I’m going to sleep 😋 night x”
I’ll rip that damn tongue out! I mean… 😇
Wait how did I manage to start talking about Mr X? Lol I actually scrolled back up to examine my train of thought.
I think I might hide away from Tinder for at least a day. My phone doesn’t give me notifications that show how many people are sending me messages. I get one or two then open the app and see like 8 and then quickly respond to everyone and close it again.
The truth is I’m tired of texting and I’m desperate to go out and actually meet guys face to face. Damn this work abroad! Sigh, the money is what’s keeping me going. The start of Summer marks my glorious return to London (have I mentioned I’m from London?). And by return I mean no more 3-4 week long stints away from home.
I can’t wait!
Until then I will prepare to squeeze as many dates as I can into my week in London during the last week of May. Maybe I’ll have more than one date in a day 🤔 Maybe I’ll end up with none lol We’ll see!
-Love, Autumn x
