Can’t Win For Losing

14 Sep

i quit

I think we all know by now that I take online dating with a grain of salt, and I certainly believe you should do the same.  Don’t set any expectations, and therefore you won’t be disappointed.

As all my single friends know, Tinder is an interesting beast (and seriously, don’t pay for it!)  in that most people you match with on Tinder never send a message.  What is that about?!  I’ve indirectly told you I find you nice to look at- you have nothing to lose!

About a week ago, I matched with a really attractive guy – and he sent a message!

“Uh not sure how we matched.  You’re out of my league”

Wow, he’s good.  That has to be a line… not that I care.   Cute guy telling me I’m out of his league?  Bring it on.

“Aww!   That’s very sweet, even though I kind of feel like I am falling for a line.”

“I dont do lines.  I was just flattered by the match”

“Well, you’re adorable.  So, you are welcome!”

….And that is it.  It’s been a week, he has been on Tinder (as recently as one minute ago at time of posting..) and nothing.   I’m out of his league, so “have a nice life,” I guess.

WHAAAAAAAT?!  …I just can’t win for losing!

      Anything bolded is the person I am interacting with.. Italicized is what I sent. Normal is my comments/thoughts. =)

    Nope, now is when you start to have fun with it.

    -Flat out tell the guy to go out to coffee.. Don’t ask tell him.

    Say.. “o.k. Mr. I’m out of your league, you’ve been drafted to the majors. You will have (some event) with me this weekend .. (best to force a time and date).”.

    If it doesn’t work … Nothing lost, and a little bit vented. my two cents, since I know you asked.

    I heard a lot of people just swipe right on everyone, just to see who they match with. So it makes sense if you get matches but no actual communication — for a lot of folks, it’s just an ego thing.

    I tried it for a couple of weeks. I matched with 4 people. 2 had super shitty communication skills (including me asking the same question 3x and never getting a response). The other 2 had nothing in their profile to use as an icebreaker. I really prefer to have something to say other than “I swiped right cause I was kinda drunk and you have a nice rack.”

    Suffice to say, I’m not on Tinder any longer.

    I agree with some of the comments above, Tinder can be disappointing when you meet people who’ve matched with you only because they swiped everyone right. That said, online dating isn’t all that bad if you choose the appropriate sites. Sites that work for you and bring you potential dates you could find happiness with. My two cents 🙂
