I don’t know how many times I’m going to type it but let me just say this, dating in your late 30’s is stupid and the dating apps are a fucking joke. Do I need to say it again: dating apps are a fucking joke. Yet, I’m still on Hinge and Bumble. Clearly I’m part of the stupidity.
I’ve been on and off the apps for a while. Sometimes I take a break from them, then I get smacked in the face with stupid and turn the notifications back on.
I decided I needed to start keeping track of this. I’m just going to add a tag to my posts about my adventures in dating apps.
On my profile I explain I am “corn fed” and I have a full body picture. Yes, I’m not afraid to eat and if I order a salad, it’s going to come as a side, and I will eat it. It’s apparently something that is overlooked then somehow it comes up and then all the mean / nasty comments and blocked. I’m not sure why most feel the need to bash me before blocking me. Real mature, and trust me, what they say to me isn’t anything I don’t think about myself or probably say to myself regularly.
If it says I am “looking for a relationship” I’m not sure why guys who are looking for something casual want to message me. I don’t care that you “think” you are hung, if you have to talk about it, chance are you are hung like a mouse. Bragging about it makes you a douche bag!
I’ve learned a lot about myself through this last 9ish months of putting myself out there. Mostly I’ve just learned it’s stupid. I’m not sure how many more times I can say this. I really just need to keep track, screen shots and such about all the stupidity.
Maybe someday I’ll look back on this, laugh and won’t be single. Hey, a girl can dream.
