I Went on One Bumble Date and Met the Love of My Life
It’s just one date, it’s no big deal, it’s just one date, it’ll be over soon, I kept chanting in my head as I walked toward the café where I was supposed to have tea with the first guy I’d ever met on a dating app.
Will I ever meet my soulmate? This question strikes in the mind of every human. Many people anticipated to find the right one or soulmate. The peoples' urge to find the right soul mate within a short period of time never allows that person to realize the amount of time he is spending on the dating sites. Looking at some well-chosen photographs displayed on a person's profile and trying to understand them through their cool looking captions that they probably copied from somewhere else takes a lot of time. One estimate suggests that users spend an average of 22 minutes each time they visit an online dating site (Finkel et al.). With the hope of forming romantic relationships, the person goes on online dating sites which offers access to almost two billion potential partners, but only that person knows the satisfaction of finding someone like his/ her thoughts.

Sad Truth About Why I Use Dating Apps - DJ Cuppy
If you have been on the internet over the past week, then you know that one of the most talked about things has been the Netflix documentary, The Tinder Swindler. People have so many thoughts and strong opinions about the movie. Many believe that the women in the show who got swindled were "dumb" and didn't ask enough questions. One very big thing people have been saying is: why didn't the girls ask that why would a billionaire's son be on a dating app?
Why Is It Not Easy To Find Women On Tinder Wanting To Live A Child-Free Life?
Alright, I know it’s mostly used for hookups and quick flings, that sort of thing. I’ve been there and done that. Times change and we age, don’t we?
Swipe right or swipe left?
Dating is hard in this day, especially this new age tomfoolery! Either you’re busy working, parenting, schooling, quarantining, or just don’t feel like going out of the house to meet anyone! Throw in COVID 19 “social distancing,” & you’re screwed.
My Senior Online Dating Saga
Should I or shouldn’t I? Was this the time to give online dating a shot? In my overactive imagination, I was hoping to find someone who still rode a motorcycle and could transport me back to the joy of my carefree youthful days of riding with the wind in my face and my body in tandem with every curve and turn of the bike. When the reality of my unbalanced arthritic body woke me up and slapped me in the head, I adjusted my expectation to looking for someone who still drove a car at night. As a widow who was blessed to have experienced a long, loving marriage with the best the male species had to offer, I was not looking for a serious long-term relationship. I was looking for companionship and fun. Someone with whom to enjoy a concert, a play, dinner, great conversation, and hearty laughter.
The Distarous World of Online Dating
A few months ago, just out of a toxic relationship with more awareness under my belt, my friends said, "just try it!" They emphasized getting out and meeting people and seeing that not all girls are like my ex, but are they?

Tinder Travesties - An Investigation of Chad
So, I don’t have much luck on Tinder for a number of reasons. I’m mostly on it just to hold onto the possibility that one day I will be loved (read: get laid). But that’s beside the point. What I will admit is, as a straight guy on Tinder, I don’t run into very many weirdos. Every so often, I find a Republican or an aspiring cop or a woman asking for men over six feet only, and that’s jarring, but that’s more of an IQ thing than a weirdo thing. Men on Tinder need to be bolder. It doesn’t take much for a woman to get a swipe-right on Tinder, but a man? It’s a tough crowd out there, and you gotta use every tool in your arsenal, which is why a lot of men rely heavily on the Tinder bio to set themselves apart from the crowd. Sure, a lot of them are normal, but a lot of them are also very not-normal. That’s where the magic begins, my friends. My friend Val came across the Tinder profile of a gentleman named Chad (not his real name), and I thought that it would be worth it to study his bio and peel apart its layers. What is Chad trying to accomplish? How is he accomplishing it? Is he effective? The answer may surprise you. At the bottom of this article, you can find his full bio, but I think it’s better if you experience Chad one or two sentences at a time, for the sake of dramatic effect. This is going to be an excellent study.

Here's The Buzz🐝: The Day I Found Love on Bumble
I would like to start by saying I am not sponsored nor am I sponsoring Bumble, but I would like to share my story as to how it all started and where I am today with my Bumble Journey. I am an old-fashioned girl that is used to finding love in person, I never believed in finding love online. I have dabbled in a couple of apps (tinder, mocospace, match, etc), and I had one success for which I was engaged after one and a half years of being with that person; but like any relationship, it had its issues, so we separated. Other than that, I was rarely interested in looking for a partner online and was never one for having a fling or any other than a serious relationship. I recently was feeling bored, I had just gotten out of a 2-year relationship, and was curious as to what the hype was when it came to online dating. I had created a few profiles on this app, met a handful of people, but there wasn't that spark nor attraction when I met them in person. Then I met this one guy that seemed like a sweet, decent, humble human being, he spoke about his vegan journey, politics, his time in the military, he had a boat on the marina... everything seemed perfect. I go to meet him in person, he was a gentleman helping me to get onto the boat, he bought us dinner, and had a great conversation. Further, into the evening, I told him that I was going to head home, he asked me to spend the night, naively I stayed... then things took a turn that I wasn't ready for considering we just met... he told me that he just wanted sex. I know it sounds naive of me that I wasn't expecting it, but I didn't think that men nowadays were so quick to jump into a sexual affair. Long story short, I ended up sleeping with him, we saw each other for a couple of other nights, and it ended shortly after. As soon as I thought I was done with this app, I decided to give it another chance without any expectations; I met the most amazing man in the world.
