2 Tinder Disasters

Thursday, 22 September 2016

As you may have noticed, my blog has moved away from being a dating blog (which is how it started) and turned into a beauty and travel blog.

This is because I haven’t been dating, I’ve been in a relationship since December.

Fortunately some of my friends have been dating and I get to hear about their dating disasters!

Some of them are kind enough to let me use their stories as guest blogs - two of these are below!!

If you want to see my previous guest dating blog you can find it here. I warn you its horrific!


“So me and Shellfish (name explanation to come) had a first date… which went pretty well, and he came back to mine. Don’t judge I’m a single grown up I can do what I like. Here is where he made a common mistake which boys make… he didn’t have any protection with him (VERY important) and I didn’t either so obviously we weren’t going to have sex. Instead stuff happened and he had a “great time” he then rolled over just to cuddle me. I was having none of it (proud girl moment) and explained to him that he could also give me a “great time”. Guys just do not understand that some girls would probably just rather not have sex and have a lot of foreplay. They seem to think they’re so amazing in bed that the be all and end all is the actual act of sex. 

He said “oh no I can’t do anything to you because you’ll enjoy it so much we’ll end up having sex”. Honestly girls, I can see you all virtually rolling your eyes right now. You’re not that great boys…
He continued to ask me what time I get up in the morning (implying he would be staying over)… so I ruined that idea for him and asked him to leave. 

I told him I was annoyed and I think he took it on board because over the next week or so he kept messaging me saying how he wanted to “please me”.

A couple of weeks later I gave him another chance with a second date. We actually had a really good date the first time round so I thought he deserved a chance.

The second date, again, was really good and we had a nice time. We walked to the bus stop when the date was over and he asked to come back to mine, I felt a bit awkward and I made my excuses and said no. I don’t want him being Selfish (Shellfish) all over again. He then tried to play the “we can just cuddle card” which I ignored.

As we were having this conversation my bus arrived so I said “That’s my bus I’ve got to go”… then (awks) as I walked away to leave he shouted “I love you” after me.

He might have been a bit tipsy…but not drunk so I cannot understand where this bizarre statement came from. Maybe he was trying to be funny?

A week went by with minimal communication, this pleased me (something he didn't achieve) as I thought it would fizzle out in a mutual manor. But I was not so lucky as the 3rd date request flashed up on my screen. I am always awkward in these situations but spent the time constructing a thoughtful and quite frankly nice refusal with a "its just not feeling right" theme. I thought it kind to shield him from the real reason that a cuddling selfish man does not set my world on fire.....  he subsequently blocked me on WhatsApp..."

"Another Tinder date... We were supposed to go for a drink on a Thursday but at the last minute he was working late and cancelled. The following Friday I wanted to come home early and have a night in watching trash TV...but he messaged and said he wanted to make up for the drink he missed. 

He asked if we could meet at 8 so I went home washed my hair and got ready. I left the house at 7.40 and then he text to say he wouldn't be there until 8.30. I'd already left so I got there early and had a drink by myself at the bar. I was standing there for quite a while and was getting chatted up by weirdos so this wasn't ideal...

By 8.50 I was annoyed and decided to walk to the bus and go home. He text at 9 saying that he would be there soon....no apology, nothing. I was all for going home but he asked me to come back and said that he'd be there in 15 minutes (9.15) and I was already out so I went back to the bar. 

He might have had a genuine reason for being late and I gave him the benefit of the doubt. 

He finally arrived an hour and 15 minutes after we were meant to meet, had a seriously annoying South African accent and didn't even apologise for his lateness. So I was put off!

His reason for being late was that he had been to pick up a new bike and had got lost....then whilst riding his new bike to meet me had cycled past a pub...where all his friends happened to be and he HAD TO go in and see them. 

I was unimpressed and I think it was obvious.

30 minutes after arriving, so 9.45 he said that he had to go because he was having a night out with his cousin. 

He then offered to walk me to the bus stop, but when I mentioned that it was in the opposite direction to his brand new precious bike he skedaddled the other way! 

Probably the worst date I've ever been on... 

That night he messaged me saying he'd had a great time and we should do it again some time.

It will not be happening again."
