I first heard about Tinder on a comedy series, where the person who was on it was being ridiculed. Tinder, the hookup app. This was over a year ago. I know I know, it’s been out for a few years, but it really just got popular over the past two years or so. Anyway, I never gave it another thought, my dating and sex life were too hot for me to care. My girl Scarlett is all about it, so I got curious. Then a friend brought it up a couple of months ago, and there was this Tinder business again. Her story was that a Tinder hookup lead to marriage. So a few weeks ago I got curious and decided to log on…
What the hell? Is this a fuck app? Ok let me back up. The first mistake I made was not knowing that Tinder was an app. So what did I do? I googled it! I hit up Google to take me to the “website”. I know, dinosaur style. So I found a site which I will not name, but it did have “Tinder” in the name. From the beginning the pictures looked real sketchy. I was done when I saw a dude’s profile pic of his ass. Hole. Yuk. I ran and screamed, dropped the laptop and vowed to never go back. I went back. Realized it was an app. Downloaded it. Tinder here I am!
Tinder Fail Swipe 1: Left – Nope Nope Nope
So I the über pickiest of them all should not be here. I will not like anyone, like literally. So swipe left swipe left swipe left until Tinder sent me a warning. Not really but they probably would have. This is boring, the dudes aren’t my type, I’ve got things to do. I’m done.
After that I forgot about it. Then two months later someone mentioned a guy they met on Tinder, and I thought, “Oh yeah, I should go back”.
Tinder Fail Swipe 2: Swipe Right!
After another million “nopes” I see a cutie pie. Hello baby. Come to mama. I swipe right! My first time, yay! Then I saw that we were a match! I’m crazy excited now, because I figure it means he swiped right for me too. Duh. You guys are probably wondering why I got so excited, but when it’s your first time, baby it’s exciting.
Me and cutie pie exchanged a few messages. Then I decide he’s taking too long to respond and I’m not with that, so, delete. Boy bye. A few hours is a long time right? And not even overnight. Not Gigi.
So back to the swiping board. I got really confused at some point and my fingers pressed the star. Wtf? Super like who? What? No no no. How do I undo that? I didn’t even see his face! Bwwaaaaaaa. I go back to google to figure out how to undo super like. I get the worst news. I’m stuck, unless I get Tinder plus. Nah.
Tinder Fail Swipe 3: A Face to Love?
I lost hope, but I kept at it. Excitement-hunting is a serious thing. Two million nopes, then hello hello. How you doooing baby? A face I could kiss, lick, sit on. And we are officially in chats. I hope he is even more delicious in person. We have to meet right? That’s what this is all about. I hope he’s not short, I hope his voice isn’t disgusting, and I hope he has excellent hygiene. I’m scared.
I have no idea what to do in this Tinder land. But what happens in Tinder land stays on Hold My Lipstick. I’ll tell you all about it…
