Dating Apps – Take One

Alright, alright, alright ~ maybe, just maybe it is time for me to dive into the dating scene…again. 

I have to say that I have been pretty content with my life, I can admit that I still don’t have all my shit together, but at 38 (edging on 39) I am doing fairly well. 

Here’s the deal, it is easier for me to say what I don’t want than what I want.  I feel like I will know it when it happens and when I meet Mr. Right, it will happen – you know fireworks and all that stuff. 

I can’t describe myself.  I have asked friends to help, but 90% of them are married and let’s be honest, nobody knows what “the other person wants to read”.

I’m taking the fist steps and paying for a month to subscribe to two services and mess around with a couple free ones. In my own OCD style, they are in a folder on my phone and I have notifications turned to on. 

As of right now, I have had men who range from 29-68 message me.  I have to say I am semi-flattered, but those are a little out of my age range. 

I will remain active for 30 days, be reporting back on what I learned and how things went, so I will give it my all!

I can already tell you that I don’t have a damn clue how to respond to messages, like this:

I am pretty sure that my response should have been to f**k off, but I thought that the conversation would get better.   I was wrong, it went downhill quickly.

I am going to get off my hiney, get a haircut, wax my eyebrows and do other important girl things this weekend so I am prepared for any impromptu dates. 

I am open for suggestions and will post profile snapshots in upcoming weeks. 

Until then, I am enjoying my Friday night with popcorn and catching up on my DVR.

    I met my boyfriend on Bumble. It is an app where the girl messages the guy first. But, you can only message if the guy has “swiped right” for you also. If the guy doesn’t respond in a certain amount of time, they disappear from your messages. No ghosting!


  2. When I finally acknowledged that I wasn’t getting married because there was no one out there….I found my soul mate. (At a dance I didn’t want to go to!) Hang in there. You never know when it will happen.
