It’s no secret that I am 25 years old.
It’s also no secret that I have yet to be successful in the dating world.
I know. Pitiful, right?
As time goes on and technology evolves, it gets more and more difficult to find a “quality” relationship. The world we currently live in is based off of instant gratification. And if the person you are talking to doesn’t provide it for you, you can find it somewhere else…instantly.
For a hopeless romantic that is into the cheesy things in life, this is not my time to shine, by any means.
Yes, I am in to the cheesy things. I’m talking Leaning Tower of Cheeza, cheesy. (If you don’t get that reference, please stop reading my blog..immediately) I guess you could say it is to no fault of my own that I am into the cheesy.. I grew up in the 90’s/early 00’s. That was the height of Nicolas Sparks! I read every-single-one of his dang books. And quickly fell in LOVE with the thought of a boy being like the ones in those books. SUE ME FOR LOVING LOVE.
So with technology and instant gratification comes the apps. Ugh. Dating apps. Don’t even get me started on Tinder. Yes, I have it. Do I use it for anything other than drunkenly scrolling through the sea of faces? No. I have never met anyone in real life from the app. I’ve talked to a few people, but usually end the conversation when “meeting up” comes up. I also grew up in the age where if you told anything about yourself to anyone on the internet, your mom/dad was going to whoop your butt! (No, not abused. Just knew the rules and followed them. Times were different when I was growing up. And I am thankful for growing up in the time I did because of that.) (ANYWAYS, ADD….) Now it is all about putting yourself on the internet! So it’s a learning curve! I’m working on it. Sort of.
Back to Tinder. When you are judging someone solely on a few pictures and a 3-5 line bio, it makes things hard and your options limited. Hence why I only use the app when I am intoxicated. (Again, I’m 25. I’m allowed to drink. Lay off!) Then you get to the people you know. I have lived in the same area my entire life. So I see a lot of people I know on the app. Yes, one could say, “Well they are on there too..so what’s the big deal?” Because. Just because. It’s how my brain works and I can’t stop it. What is really funny though is seeing the ones you know that have the douche-iest (not sure on that spelling) profiles ever. Then when you match with your stranger of choice, then comes the awkward conversation. Or God forbid the awful message that I received one time, “I’m looking for someone to let me cum in them.” BARF. No thanks, dude. Btw, do you kiss your mother with that mouth?! Blech.
As technology evolves, it is only going to get worse. So I guess I am going to forever be the girl with her oversized plastic glasses and large iced coffee sitting in a coffee shop, writing her blog. Her blog that has no readers, no followers, or no real theme. Oh well. I prefer dogs to people anyways.
This post was a mess.
