My Virtual Dating Life Has Made Quarantine SO Much More Fun

Seriously, it's kind of great.

My Virtual Dating Life Has Made Quarantine SO Much More Fun

Your love life doesn't have to end just because we are stuck in quarantine.

Let's be grateful that we live in 2020, and dating apps are a thing. Even without the suggested quarantine, I highly recommend dating apps.

To be quite honest, Tinder has been an app on my phone since the day I turned 18 (shhh, don't tell my mom). It had always intrigued me, and I wanted to hop on the bandwagon to find out what it was all about.

Before the quarantine, it was alright. I had matches... but for me, I used it more to see who found me attractive. Which, in turn, gave me higher self-esteem and made me love myself more. (Weird, I know).

But now, I am dying without the human connection in quarantine.

I haven't seen a guy in more than two weeks, and the hoe in me is coming out. These dating apps have my back, though and I can talk to as many guys as I want and be the biggest hoe if I want.

If I am being honest, it is so much better than trying to get my pharmacist to fall in love with me or going back to talking to one of my "exes."

Plus! Tinder has recently released Passport to all Tinder users to help singles find love while social distancing. Now, this (normally) premium feature is currently free for all users until April 30.

So, I'm making the most of it and trying to find the love of my life in London. I'm making this my own season of "Love Island," except with one girl and like 20 guys — so, I guess, "The Bachelorette."

If you made it this far, here are nine of my favorite conversations I have had with my matches while quarantined so far:

This man is a 10 in my book because he let me finish singing.

This was just the best thing that has ever happened to me, I don't even know.

This was actually pretty good. I'm lying saying it was mediocre.

Cecilia Flick

I really do love a good cowboy!

Cecilia Flick

I have never heard this pickup line before. This was just so cute.

Cecilia Flick

I might want my pharmacist more.

Cecilia Flick

I just want to see how many more times he will say something.

This was very geeky, and to be frank, I was very confused at first until I realized he meant a legitimate match. Like to light candles with.

I have to end it with a quarantine pick-up line.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
