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.

Cecilia Flick

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

Cecilia Flick

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.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
