[1: 1,974 of 10,000] I Signed Up For Tinder, Again

Last December 15, 2019, for the third time, I signed up for Tinder. Again, not because I was out of a relationship, but because I was scared to be in one. If I am not playing my card right, I’ll be the female version of the 40-year-old virgin this year.

First time I signed up in Dubai years ago, I didn’t like the choices of men, so after a day, I deleted the account. The second time I signed up in Dubai, I saw someone I knew, so without a second thought, I immediately deleted my account. Now, the third time and sign up while I was in Copenhagen for vacation, I am finally giving love a chance and determined to let love simmer into my life. Also, Copenhagen is filled with good looking people who have great taste in creating artful things, I thought if I will look for a mate, it’s a place that’s a viable place with a great array of choices. Despite seeing two people I knew in the dating app when back home in Dubai, it wasn’t enough to scare me this time and so I hold on.

After 1 month, I stumble upon a guy that is potentially I want to love. Big word, right? He makes me laugh, he knows how to use the proper punctuation marks (oh I can’t emphasize enough how satisfying that is), and he answers all questions when we chat. It’s a pickle that there are that 5,598 kilometers distance between us but it’s just one plane ticket away if we really think it’s worth giving this possible connection a chance. The best part of all is he calms me down, I am a worrier and overthink a lot of things and him being attentive, insightful, and never fails to respond to my message… I mean I can honestly admit that I’m starting to like him. Will he be the reason why I would finally be deleting my Tinder account for good? I hope! xx

Match

I downloaded the Tinder app, signed up, deleted my account, signed up again, deleted my account again, and finally deleted the app in a span of less than two months.

I am scared to be flirty although I did try and made an effort. I am afraid to fall in love with a wrong man… I know the mere thought of finding a wrong man already set me up for disaster. I doubt that the man I want to settle down with signed up in Tinder. Could it be that as hesitant as I may be is the same feeling of the man I am meant to meet?

Or are we crossing paths but I never looked, paused?

For something to happen, I need to take an action, but I couldn’t seem to stomach signing up in Tinder and swiping as fast as I can. In seconds judging an individual with their photos and brief write up then making all these assumptions.

I hated it when I mistakenly liked or even super liked somebody I don’t even meant to be just because my silly thumb has a mind of its own to the right direction. I swiped left too soon and missed the possibility of I might like that man. I wonder if I am going to find a really honest gentleman. I laugh when I found a match only after a few minutes one of us would decide we are not a match after all ouch quick rejection!

It feels like so much work to be part of it so I have to challenge myself and find another way to meet good men. I have to sign up for activities where I will actually interact with men.
