The Dating Scene..

Monday, 26 January 2015

You might have noticed that I haven't done a dating blog in quite a while.

To be honest, last year was a bit weird in terms of dating. I broke up with someone at the beginning of the year and we both found it tricky to move on and not be drawn back together.

There was to-ing and fro-ing but now (although it wasn't easy to do!) I/we actually decided that we aren't right together and we are happier apart. 

At least I am...I'm assuming (and actually hoping) he is too. It would be nice for us both to be happy separately.

2015 is a new year and a new start for me so I'm excited for what it will bring.

...unfortunately certain parts of the dating pool seem like a bit like a cesspit!

(Although I have also had a small experience of the nicer side of it too)

Lets start with the cesspit section though that's much more interesting!

I rejoined Tinder, updated my pictures with current ones and was ready to see what was out there...

This is what greeted me...

The possibility of dating someone who appears to be a wizard and owns a unicorn??
The possibility of dating someone who took the time to make this picture...
Not Great!

This is just a genuine worry... 

As is this..
Can't work out whether I hope Guy is the one in the dinosaur mask or the monkey..
I think the dinosaur..

Joe looks like a barrel of laughs... 
And has great taste in jewellery...

Then there was the worrying moment where someone who looks exactly like my brother pops up!
I'm Italian...what a good opening line.

Love an Italian...shame he looks like my sibling!

Moving on from Tinder...I was already a member of OK Cupid, I just hadn't checked the messages in a long time...

I know this might be really anal...but there is a difference between YOUR and YOU'RE!!

I appreciate the compliment though....

It gets interesting if you go into your unfiltered messages too!

Do I ever think I'm better than others?
I'm better than this guy with that as an opening line!

This guy thinks I'm magic...which I enjoy (secret Slytherin)
But he called me kid...and confirmed that men are bad!

And this one has just knocked it out of the park

I think I'm going to give up on internet dating...and meet someone organically instead.

To be honest though...I'm quite enjoying being single

Who ever thought I would say that!!


  1. Oh Tinder! How many hours do I waste away entertaining myself on that app.. Is that a bit mean? You do get some odd sorts of guys on there!

    1. I do it too...I'm a serial left swiper though. There are very few right swipes!! x
