The other day I was riding shotgun in my sister’s vehicle with her co-worker / friend in the backseat. He casually asks, “What dating app are you using?”
My sister chuckles a grip as she suggests, “Before you answer tell JB the Michelin Man Story!”
After I tell him said story with every gory detail, he’s in stitches! (I included the story link above if you are curious) That experience was on Plenty of Fish, but I was also was on eHarmony, and Match.
He collects himself to offer up that he’s on Bumble. I nod in acknowledgement, as if I were to pick one … it’d be that one.
My sister is confused as she’s never heard of it. We explain that is much like Tinder with the exception that the lady must establish contact after a match is made within 24 hours.
That premise ALONE has my interest piqued. I would return to Online Dating: Tap That App!
The irony for JB was that his ex-girl friend was offered up as a possible match! We all roared with laughter.
My sister and I have very little faith in online dating, whether it’s a website or app. My sister quipped, “They wouldn’t have ended if they were good (relationships)”.
I had to agree. I have had only one relationship emerge from the popular app, Tinder. As you can imagine, I had many more failures than successes.
To answer JB’s earlier question, I smiled, “I have L.D.D.”
His eyebrows furrowed, “What the hell is that?” as he scrolled through potential #Bumble matches. I waited for his undivided attention before clarifying because I prefer to look you in the eye while talking.
He looked up after I fell silent. I smiled, “L.D.D.is a disease that is rare. The acronym stands for Los Don’t Date!” I burst out laughing. “But if I did date, if I return to online dating, I’ll tap that app.”
But I do have my choice of (in addition to those mentioned already): Zoosk, Elite Singles, and OurTime.
