Thank You Tinder

Thank You Tinder

It's strange to be thanking a hookup app, isn't it?

Going through a breakup is rough for anybody. I went through one and was convinced that I was never going to meet “Mr. Perfect” or someone who could make me truly happy again. My friends got really sick of my constant moping and the pity party I had for myself, that they downloaded the app Tinder (every college students way to either get dates, meet people, or hookup) on my phone. Tinder is notoriously known as a hookup app and very few people use it to just purely talk to others or try finding relationships.

I started talking to a lot of new people and I really thought it was fun. Just talking to new people and getting to know people was very fun for me. I never had intentions of meeting “that special someone” or hooking up, because anyone who knows me knows that I am most definitely not that girl. But one night, I was bored and logged onto good old Tinder and saw a picture of a boy painting benches, and I knew I had to talk to him. I swiped right and that’s where the adventure began.

The first message I received from the cute boy was asking what my favorite 90s R&B song was. Two weeks later, we went on a breakfast date. A month after that first message, I met his parents, he met mine, and we’ve been dating for six months now.

So, thank you Tinder. You have not only given me friends who I can talk to whenever I want, but you’ve given me my boyfriend: someone who makes me smile every single day, someone who makes me happy when skies are grey, and you’ve given me my best friend.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
