What bothers girls most? Fashion trends? Release of state-of-the-art gadgets? Naah, not a bit.
Relationship… It’s all about relationship, always.
We are now living in a digital age that has greatly improved the way people communicate in their daily routine. Loads of dating apps and websites are emerging day by day, and they are always in demand. Here’s one that allows you to just ‘like’ a photo and get a match instantly, while another one will require that you fill out a long questionnaire and create a comprehensive bio to find your special someone. Both strategies are effective and workable – there’s no denying it, but…
Online dating is taken lightly by most people, so it’s going to be quite a challenge to find the right person with the right values. And this is where the curse begins, at least for me.
Ladies and gentlemen (if there are some here), meet the top 3 types of men I stumbled upon in the dating app!
So, I landed on CoD’s page, and read through his profile – actually it wasn’t much info in it. We were based in different countries, but he had mine listed as one of the-soon-to-be-visited destinations. I decided to take a chance.
We had a nice chatting, full of jokes, flirting and cute pics. It was like a jolt of fresh air that lasted… mmm… a week. And then he disappeared, abruptly, without any reason or explanation. CoD heaved in my ‘digital’ sight again in a month or two. As he was coming to my country, CoD asked me out for a couple of drinks and backed up his ‘vanishing’ with impracticability of discussing something that is going to happen in a few months.
As you might have guessed, we never met.
What comes to mind when describing this type of dating app men is LMFAO’s song – “Sexy and I know it.” Once you stumble upon Hottie’s profile you are getting impressed instantly – tall, handsome, muscular (or whatever you like in a man’s appearance). Is he real? Yes, he certainly is. But in my case, Hottie wasn’t quite focused on a long-term and meaningful relationship; he was looking for a hookup instead.
Each time, after we had exchanged several idle messages, the point of the conversation shifted to ‘all things horny’. Sure, when we realized we had different purposes (it took a while), he disappeared. But at least I received a pack of his hot pics as a bonus – lol.
Call it an evil fate, but LLL was the resident of another country, though a neighboring one. This was like a dream that was coming true – chatting for hours, phone calls, future plans, promises of a never-ending love, blah-blah.
It seemed all sweetness and light until he disappeared without a word. He was regularly updating his statuses and pictures in his social media profiles, but never dropped a line to “the love of his life.” Being a stubborn person, I kept silence as well, but broke it in a week when curiosity came out on top.
The reasoning was striking – “I just decided to leave you alone for some time, but we are still okay.” Yeah, we were okay for two more days, and then he disappeared again. I have never tried to contact him since then, and so he has.
Happy endings exist
However, it’s not all doom and gloom. There are people, who managed to find their significant ones using dating apps and websites. I can safely claim that, basing on the positive experience of my happily married friends.
You will never achieve your goal if you don’t invest effort – and it’s so true about relationship. No try – no win! This is what I believe in. And what about you? Do you have any special strategies for dating websites and apps? What is your experience?
