Everyone loves the funny guy.
In a world of technology filled with dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and Grindr, it’s hard to imagine a time when people actually verbally asked one another out on dates. Nowadays, you instantly have access to thousands of potential suitors with one small swipe of a finger.
But is this really a good thing? My personal Tinder experience has been nothing but a bunch of dead-beats and dead-ends.
It seems like every guy I’ve talked to is looking for a casual hookup, and even if they say they’re looking for something more, it’s typically just a line. I’ve spent hours swiping through guy after guy, but at this point it seems more like a game than a dating service. It’s something my roommate and I do for fun when we’re bored on a week night, neither of us expecting to find our future husband.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m well aware that there are some real Tinder romances out there. I’ve just come to the realization that this kind of dating is personally not my style, and I know I’m not the only one.
I’ve never really been one for texting or direct messaging. I’m much more of a “let’s hangout” kinda gal. It’s shocking, really.
There’s something so satisfying about meeting someone for the first time and instantly hitting it off.
With dating apps becoming so popular I feel like it’s just becoming more and more difficult to have this sort of connection with someone.
There’s nothing I appreciate more than someone with a great sense of humor. Recently a guy walked up to me at a bar and said “You’re so cute, you made me forget my pick up line.” Of course I wasn’t impressed by the understated pick up line or him calling me cute. It was the silly gesture that got me.
Pick up lines are absolutely ridiculous, we all know this, but sometimes the best way to connect with someone is to make them laugh.
Forget the dating apps, if you see someone who catches your eye, talk to them. Breaking the ice can be a little nerve wracking and even difficult, but that’s what pick up lines are for! So, they might be a little cheesy, but they’ll be sure to put a smile on their face.
