Why Won’t Your Bumble Match Meet You IRL?

Why Won’t Your Bumble Match Meet You IRL?

“Not here for a penpal” is one of the common denominators I should have added to my list of things that I’m sick of reading on peoples Tinder profiles.

The uninitiated amongst us would be right to question why someone would be on a dating site if they’re not actually looking to, well, y’know…date. It’s a solid question and the reality is, even if someone is on there for a ONS (One Night Stand, obv) or a casual hook up, there’s still the probability that eventually you’re gonna have to “connect” and step away from the screen. That is unless you’re happy spending your Friday nights getting your rocks off with your phone. Alone. In your house. Now, I aren’t saying I’m not down for a little sext action, in the right circumstances it’s fantastic, but I much prefer the presence of an actual human being massaging my nether regions rather than telling me about how they’re gonna do it. Ya feel me?

I’m very much a fan of the ‘we matched, I don’t hate talking to you, we seem to have a vibe going, let’s speak on the phone to see if this chemistry continues when we throw in another medium‘ approach when it comes to online dating. And if that chemistry follows through to the phone? Where shall I meet you? Yep, it probably comes down to that fact that I’ve watched way too many back to back episode of Catfish to realise that if they’re avoiding meeting up with you, you’re probably pouring your heart out to a fish farmer who lives in Canada and stole their profile picture from a male model who lives in Cali but also because, weirdly, I joined a dating site because I’d actually like to go on dates and meet new people. 阅读更多
