or who knows…If we are moving into an era where women’s sexuality is going to be as liberated as men’s then why wouldn’t a woman hit us up on Tinder for a drink and then invite us to their room. I don’t think it’s my bag, and it’s a bit exhausting to be flicking photos to the left for NOPE and right for YES. I didn’t even know her name when we started texting, but I knew her dog’s name. We even exchanged a few texts and she did give me her name.And as a newbie I have yet to see the JOIN signal on any of the apps. And while that’s interesting, the context provided on dating sites is valuable. And she kept up the “let’s go” attitude, but I can’t get a “hello” date set no matter how casual and easy I am making it.So when you send theand you don’t get an immediate response, just chill. Whatever the chemistry was on your end, it was not reciprocated or appreciated.However, when you don’t get the message until a second message is sent, you’ve probably already been deleted from “potential” contacts. When there is a YES on both ends the delays are short and sweet. Oh well…And then we move on to the speed of Tinder or it’s imitators.And that doesn’t seem to have changed on the dating sites at this point.
Speed-dating has become ironic; it’s actually one of the slowest forms of dating around.Okay, texting is not a great method for finding love, but it’s what we’ve got.And at least, if you’re got their phone number you’re a step closer to contacting them for real, maybe “in-person” even.I don’t want to waste an evening on a Tinder date any more than I do on a mismatched Match date. In my experience striking for the NEW TO MATCH folks is a good idea.Time is currency and loser dates are like throwing and an evening into the trashcan. They say all of the good ones are taken, and perhaps the really good ones are snapped up quickly.
