2017 Year in Review

I thought it would be fun to do a year in review sort of post. Not that this is going to be anything fancy but it is just for fun. It is kind of crazy to think about the whirlwind that this year. Not just for the blog but for me personally. Not that I blogged all about it but maybe I will type it up one day. Either way I appreciate all of you for sticking with me this year because I know I did disappear for three months during the summer but you welcomed me back with open arms.

OkCupid - Hey Ho Part 2

Remember that guy who started a conversation with "Hey ho"? If you don't click here to refresh your memory on that one. Once you're caught up again come back to this. So, as I was saying at the end of that post the guy never responded. That seemed fair enough. He called me a name so I called him a name. He obviously couldn't handle it if he thought it was a joke or he just realized the error of his ways and decided to shut up. Strap yourselves in because it gets better, or at least better in the sense of more entertaining.

Peaky Blinders Season 4 Spoiler Free Review

I just had a thought to do this because I love Peaky Blinders and the newest season was recently released just in time for Christmas. I actually haven't seen much about it online, which is disappointing to me because it was truly amazing. So I decided to type up a spoiler free review for anyone who is possibly interested in watch. That means, if you are interested in watching you should definitely give it a chance. You won't regret it. I give it a 10/10, would recommend.

OkCupid - Snap Code

I am sure we have all experienced strangers giving out their Instagram handle on a dating app because they think it will be cool to have you follow them on there. I get that some people think it is a great way to learn about someone because they get to see more snapshots of their life. Trust me, I've checked out some of the Instagram accounts connected to dating profiles out of curiosity and learned enough to immediately swipe left. Some people really do know how to show off the worst things about them. It has been a true life saver though so I can't really complain. Now we're entering the age of Snapchat and that just becomes even more questionable. Especially when someone uses their snap code as their profile picture.

OkCupid - Hey Ho

Conversation starters aren't always easy. I've had the guy who thought that being a jar opener was an impressive introduction. Then I had the guy who actually had the fun idea about shopping and playing tetris because we were both tall. Today though we have someone who either doesn't know how to start a conversation or maybe just doesn't know how to be funny. I seriously can't understand why it has become so hard to start a conversation with a stranger. It seems like something that happens every day but apparently there are those who struggle with it and I do mean really struggle with it. Let me share with you what message I received today.

OkCupid - You Will Like It

We've had to talk about profiles plenty of times on this blog. We have those who share too much or share too little. Some just never seem to find the perfect amount of sharing just enough information to go off of. Today we have someone who really doesn't seem to grasp the idea of a self summary. It should be easy to list off some stats about yourself like your age, what you do for work, where you went to school, and what you enjoy doing. Let me show you what struggle I had to see today.

OkCupid - Sweat Emoji Love?

Remember how there was a movie all about emojis and how they had secret lives? I mean, I only remember it because of the commercial trailer but I never actually saw it. It was one giant advertisement for a bunch of apps that paid the most money. Either way emojis are becoming even more important on dating apps. That isn't to say that emojis are just now being used or anything like that but I'm starting to encounter them even more in first messages. Today I discovered that either I'm old or I just don't know what emojis mean.
