Tagged! 15 Weird Questions

If you don't know Pelin then you need to get your life together and go check her out. I only recently befriended her on Twitter and now there's no going back honestly. Sorry Pelin, I'm not giving you a choice in the matter. I read her answers in her own post and mentioned we have a lot in common. Now she's tagged me and it's my turn to answer the questions.

OkCupid - Battle of the Sexes

Well if you have somehow forgotten my Legs of Steel post never fear you can always go back and read it, which you will want to do before reading this or else it will make very little sense! Now I'm sure we all thought that conversation was over but no, of course not. It had to continue.

Coffee Meets Bagel vs Tinder: The Pros & Cons Of Each

By now most all of us know about Tinder. You swipe right if you like a person or swipe left to pass on them. You can now swipe up and super like someone so that when you appear in their feed you’re outlined in blue so they all ready know that you’re interested. Sort of makes things easier in terms of deciding whether or not you’re interesting if you all ready know they are. Once you connect you’re able to message one another but that can turn into a bit of a problem. There are plenty of ghost accounts where the person never sends a message and as soon as you unmatch them they will reappear in your feed once more. Or there are the ones where the person is obviously lying about their age and only looking for a hookup. That doesn’t seem to match well with the idea of dating when it’s considered a dating app.

OkCupid - Legs of Steel

After the whole foot fetish confession I wasn't quite sure what to expect next. Where are my regular conversations? I don't get it. This next one started off with a compliment but I literally looked back at all of my pictures I put on OkCupid and they don't really highlight my legs that much to make someone say "You have legs of steel!"

OkCupid - Are My Settings Correct?

Now I can easily see the pictures of people who message me and even though it's a tiny snapshot in a small circular bubble I was a little confused when I saw a picture that was obviously a mirror selfie with the face cut off. I was a bit concerned when I noticed that they seemed to be wearing an outfit I would expect to see on a woman. I thought this was going to be a repeat of that one guy I had when I first joined. Let me explain.

OkCupid - Jake From State Farm

Ok so it isn't really Jake from State Farm but that commercial still makes me laugh and that is now what I'm associating Jake in Florida with. Just let me have my fun. If you don't remember my first post about him be sure to go back here to read it over. He's the one who said tall girls were the best. Well I continued the conversation with him as I said I but wow did things take a turn.

OkCupid - Top of the Mornin

I think I may have missed the memo regarding the whole Irish vibe. I mean, remember that last post where the guy started by asking about whether or not I was in to Irish guys? Seems I must have traveled to Ireland somehow, which would be absolutely fantastic because talk about a great vacation. Sadly that isn't the case and I'm sure they have better pick up lines over there. Anyways, let's get back to the "gangsta" who messaged me.

Tinder - A Friend's Tale Part 2

Now it's time to continue my tale about Lily and Nate. If you missed Part 1 be sure to go back and read that so you aren't too lost or confused. Now where I left off, things were going great. They had met up, gone to dinner, and ended the night with cuddling and movies. That doesn't sound too bad now does it? Things ended on a good note.

Tinder - A Friend's Tale Part 1

So I told my friend about using all these different dating apps and blogging about it which made her become a bit interested in all the dating apps. Not to blog about it of course, but just to see what all the dating apps had to offer/were all about. She recently got out of a five year relationship so she's looking to get back in the dating game but wasn't exactly sure how to go about it. This is her story.

OkCupid - Vagas Trouble

You read that correctly. I wrote Vagas and not Vegas, which you will understand once you read this post. Let's just say I'm busy getting into trouble according to this southern man.

OkCupid - Tall Girls Are The Best!

You've all seen the gist of most of the messages I receive from the different guys on the dating apps at this point. They're starting to get a bit repetitive and if I'm being completely honest I'm getting a bit bored with it. I mean, I didn't know I'd be attracting all of the same kinds of guys. That wasn't part of the plan. Then I got this random message from Jake and it was kind of nice.

OkCupid - Really Cool Person

Do guys just think that saying one sentence will magically convince me that what they are saying is true? I mean, you have to prove yourself. You could say just about anything in a message but that doesn't make any of it true. So saying that you're a "pretty cool person" means nothing to mean because that's just what you're trying to present. I'll have to figure that out for myself.

OkCupid - Shot Yourself In The Foot

So Hannah has been on me about giving my number out to guys to chat with them, which I don't exactly mind considering most of the messaging aspect within the apps aren't the best when it comes to notifications. At this point OkCupid is the worst with it crashing and not sending messages but that's beside the point. Well I matched with a guy named Paul on OkCupid and we only sent a few messages before he was asking for my number, which I was fine with because let me just say Paul was very attractive.

OkCupid - Reflecting on Myself and Flinstones

Mirror selfies are not cool. Honestly they just aren't. You know that people place themselves just right with the perfect angle so that they present themselves in the best way. Or sometimes they are just blurry and terrible pictures because people don't know how to clean their mirror. Either way some people like them but seriously there's a front facing camera now so just take a normal picture. When a 40 year old man takes a mirror selfie that doesn't make it any better. I mean, I don't expect him to be a pro at it but why is he doing it in the first place?

OkCupid - I'm Not Thinking About You!

People fill out their profiles how they want to. There's the handful of questions that are asked that need a little more detail besides yes or no or just one choice between two options. There are the quick match questions of messy vs organized, morning person vs night person, and things along those lines that break down into percentages of match-ability, if that's a word. Sometimes seeing what people write down in response to some of the questions just confuse me. I mean, are they actually trying to find a relationship or not?

Clover - Up and Coming Company

We live in a digital age and I'm fairly certain that just about everyone who has a cellphone or internet access knows it. I mean, we have apps for just about anything and everything so why am I not surprised that guys are not only using the dating apps to get girls to come out to the club, because they are club promoters, but also to find models. This doesn't sound sketchy at all.

OkCupid - Why So Serious?

On these dating apps I've seen pictures of a lot of guys with tattoos. Personally, I would never get one for myself. I mean, I don't think I would be able to handle having something permanently inked on my skin. Sure, there's the option of getting it removed later but that's just expensive and painful. Some tattoos are cool and have purpose, I get that. It's all up to the person who gets a tattoo. As long as you love it that is what matters. Enjoy it and flaunt it. But there is one tattoo I just can't get over.

OkCupid - Midas Touch

If only everything he touched turned to gold. Maybe then he would be a bit more interesting. Or perhaps I could just have him touch a bunch of random things to make bank from selling them. Now that would be innovative and keep me well funded for any and all of my travel plans. Instead, I don't think he possesses that ability.
