Embarrassed of Tinder: 9 Lies To Tell When You Met Your Date Online
Abigail Underwood

Online dating is such a taboo subject. I’m not really sure why. It is the era of technology, right? Most people are familiar with apps such as Tinder and Bumble.

Of course, we can’t forget about the O.G. websites such as eHarmony and Match. There’s also websites designed to suit your personal cultural tastes, like Christian Mingle and Farmers Only.

I have done my time with online dating. Honestly, I have met some pretty cool people through it. There is just something about telling people that you’re going out with someone you met online, though. It’s like a low-key scornful glance and a salty-toned, “Oh, OK.” Some people get embarrassed about saying they met someone on a dating site. So, here’s a list of lies for you to tell people how you met your date.

1. "I was shopping for cargo pants at Wal-Mart. I didn't even see him, but our hands touched as we were flipping through sizes. After that, it was love at first sight."

2. "I'm an idiot and hit her car while driving in the parking lot. I left my number on her car so I could help pay for damages. We started texting and it turns out she's really into me."

3. "She was my waiter at Olive Garden. I left my number on the table instead of a tip." (This one's a classic.)

4. "I was carrying a stack of trays at work across a freshly mopped floor. I didn't notice the wet floor sign, so I slipped. He caught me with one hand and the trays with the other."

5. "I was at the circus. He was in front of me to ride an elephant. It was a long wait, so we ended up having to ride the same elephant. He bought me cotton candy after, and we've been talking ever since."

6. "We were at church. The pastor said to join hands for the end-of-service prayer. She just so happened to be across the aisle. We had to hold hands, but I didn't just hold her hand. I intertwined my fingers with her's. After the prayer, I invited her out to lunch. She's pretty cool." (Use this one if you met your date on Christian Mingle!)

7. "I was at the emergency room getting stitches. He was my nurse. He stitched up my wound and now he's stitching up my heart."

8. "My friend's cousin's ex-boyfriend's sister's friend introduced us."

9. "I met him on Tinder." (You could just own it.)

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
