Online dating is a good thing that’s happened to us. It has made it easier for many of us to meet new people, and brought dating out in the open. For those of us who aren’t looking for a relationship but want some sexy time, online dating apps have created ample opportunity. They have also helped in making sex less of a taboo. But, like anything else, the world of online dating isn’t all violins and roses. While we’re in favour of it, there are plenty of horror stories out there to counter our claim. So, we thought we’d bring some to you, just to show you the not-so-pretty side of trying to find love (or lust) on the Internet.
The One Whose “Friends Would Not Approve Of Me”…
It started great! There was spark, a lot of conversation, chemistry… everything. The first time we went, we went for a coffee. And it was fun. We talked a lot. The second time, again we met over coffee. The third time we went for drinks and dinner. And I’m sitting there, with my drink and a cigarette in hand. He’s sitting from across me, with his drink and a cigarette in his hand. By this time, he’s already told me that he likes me. But then he goes, “You know, my friends would never approve of you. I mean… by social standards, you are not dating material.” So, I asked him why. He proceeded to give me an entire list of reasons… “You smoke, you drink, you have tattoos, and you’re on Tinder.” I mean, “You’re on Tinder!” What the fuck! So are you, dude! That’s how we met!
