To be supportive of my search for a partner, one of my best friends went so far as to suggest how much fun it would be to go through profiles with me on Match. I scoffed. I decided that if I was going to try online dating for the first time, I should try a dating site more commensurate with my associated college-age coolness.
But, I overheard my students talking about Bumble, the e-dating site that, in heterosexual matches, the female gets to make the first contact. I sidled up to a cluster of my university students and learned that the swiping right and left that indicated interest or lack there-of was both low-commitment and so very, e-asy. It was decided. I had a smartphone and was ready to swipe my way to a new relationship on that sunny yellow Bumble site that let women make the first move.
Air horn! It felt strange. I had a vague strategy. I would steer clear of the super-hot dudes posed on sailboats, shirtless, Ray Bans covering their sure-to-reject-me-eyes. I would also swipe left on the men who looked like Dumbledore and would only swipe right on the perfectly age appropriate, acceptable looking man who hit solidly between Playboy and Terrorist.
I applied my criteria and got a match. Yay me! I examined his information. His profile name was Gardener. He was sixty-eight. I am not sixty-eight. After fifteen minutes of writing and deleting, I settled on a friendly yet breezy note.
Click To Tweet. HeresHoping: Hello. Tell me about yourself. I did. We messaged a bit, and I went to bed that night and thought, I got this. See Bumble was so right for me. It was 2 AM and my phone went off with a bumble message. Concerned and hoping there was no Bumble emergency, I read the message. From here on out this is exactly transcribed from my phone. Slow down Hot Pants. This is Bumble. Me: Maybe. Would you like to come over and go through photo albums of my kids?
I have bins not scrapbooks. We could go through all of my bins and talk about how cute my kids are. Make you feel cheap. Must Google. But, I think this is a salad. Of course, I meant solid but it autocorrected to salad …. Did he know where I lived? Had I accidently shared my location with the world when I dropped my phone in the toilet earlier in the week and had to store it in rice for the day? I could almost hear my daughter shouting Shut It Down like I was in the middle of a nuclear reactor and a valve had to be turned or I was going to end up with a guy at my front door holding a salad quoting Fifty Shades of Grey.
Then, in the most ridiculous moment of an already-ridiculous night, I wrote:. Then I deleted Bumble and considered volunteering in the nursing home where they speak my language and have a firm bedtime.
The next day I told my friend I had tried. I tried to be open and witty and game. I tried to get with the program and do a little flirty texting. I tried. But, as HeresHoping certainly knew, hope springs eternal. I can say that it works. I met my wife in Nerve 15 years ago. Knew after our first phone call that I wanted to marry her. But decided it would be way too demanding to ask right away. You do get to choose.
And there are literally millions of guys you get to choose from.
All you need to find is one. Take your time. Reach out only to guys who rock your world from the minute you see them on screen. Then tell them why they rocked you in your first message. Wrote as beautifully and as comically as you do. And expect that the right guy will respond in kind. Ann, you had me laughing out loud! Hard pass on the Bumble, friend.
I have a feeling Mr. Right is going to waltz into your life the old fashioned way…. After I was married for 30 years, my husband, who was six years older than I, died in his 50s. A year later, our adult children suggested that I go on internet dating. Years later, I met a man online and we are enjoying our relationship. I believe you would enjoy the book. And good luck with your search!
What a scary jerk! Can you get his address so we can all send sal to his house? That man deserves all the veggies he gets. I love that Anne and I are out for revenge for you, Ann. Bumble is last year. You two are my champion. I heard that too about the Hinge…. Damn this world moves fast. Oh my gosh!
This story is so funny! Thank you for sharing. It made me laugh out loud. So, did this nice guy come into your life from the online site? If so, how did you find the courage to try again after the plant creep? I did meet a nice person online. It will make a good story.
True love is not a myth, Ann. Only took 40 years to meet him the old fashioned way! Shared this with my daughter, who has tried Bumble with rather similar. What ever happened to the face-to-face meet-cutes we writers convince besotted readers happen all the time? The world needs more of those,and far fewer Bumble sal. Dating sure has changed since my last date some 30 odd years ago.
Cute blog, but I must apologize for the necessity for the following comment. I thank God every day I am not single. That was hysterical, Ann! Boy, I thought lesbians were direct! As always Ann I so look forward to everything you write! Your humor is insightful and I always laugh out loud when I read your quips excerpts and stories. Thanks for keeping the smile on so many faces.
Thank you for writing and reading and reaching out. It keeps me feeling like I should keep doing this. Man that was funny!! Haha I am still laughing!!!! Good luck.Sex dating in Garvin
