Thank You Tinder

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

Thank You Tinder

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.

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious. They know exactly what they want to do and when they want to do it. Then there are people who are considered "Type B." People with Type-B personality are just all around more relaxed. There isn't much that is going to stress them out.
