The League - Mr. F

For those of you who follow me on twitter you know that it's been a bit of a whirlwind these past few weeks due to one Mr. F. If you've watched Arrested Development I hope you enjoy the reference just because I find it funny. Sadly, it is not Charlize Theron though who I met. Although wouldn't have have been super surprising? Now that would be a big surprise. Anyway, let's get on to the story.

Bumble - Infinite Pleasure

I don't know if this is a thing with dating apps everywhere but in Vegas I've heard from a lot of guys that they see profiles for cam girls who basically just want to give you a link so you can pay money to see them. I'm not a guy so I wouldn't see that sort of thing. Still that would be frustrating though to try and weed through those kinds of profiles. Today though I have a guy who seems to be running the same kind of business but I honestly can't help but laugh at his profile.

Bumble - No Nut November

Ah look, today we have someone who is trying to be trendy. I mean, I assume that Victor is trying to be super cool with the way he filled out his bio on the dating app but I can't say I want to even have a chance to ask him. I mean, surely it is meant to be a joke but I can't say that I am laughing. Anyone else use dating apps while trying to go without sex because that just sounds weird, doesn't it? At this point most people are using the apps just to hook up. Anyway, on to today's story.

Tinder - Soviet Tank

I've been a little more active on the dating apps as of late so maybe my next post will be about an actual date! Shocking, I know. Either way, until one of those said dates happen (because these boys are all talk) I have a fun post to share with you today nonetheless. Sometimes the conversations that happen can be the best, especially with the strangest profiles. Today we have someone who definitely is dedicated to the profile they've created but I'm not quite sure what they're hoping to get out of it.

The League - Dating App Review

Have you heard of The League? It's supposed to be the latest and greatest dating app that is quite exclusive. Most people have to pay to use it and even before being able to do that you have to have signed up for it and waited on a waiting list. I swear I signed up for this apps waiting list back in March of this year and it only finally just launched a month ago here in Vegas. I guess I was early enough to get in but I figured I'd give you all the low down on how the app is going.

Tinder - Dad a Pries?

First impressions are very important as I'm sure you are all well aware. This is how things are in real life and in the online dating world. We go based off appearances or pictures we see and how our first interactions are with a person. So when using a dating app it is important to make sure your opening or first message is a good one. Usually you try and send something that catches the other person's attention in order to elicit a response. Today we have someone who really had a hard time doing just that.

Tinder - Animal Cruelty

Sometimes people just send you a funny conversation that they had on a dating app and you can't help but share it. Today we have someone who pulled the usual line of "tickets for the gun show" because we all know how original that one is. There's a twist though but I'll let you read it for yourself. Be prepared though, it's definitely not what you would expect.

Tinder - Acceptable Proof of Height

If you've used the dating apps for long enough you know plenty of guys lie about their height. Now, most people probably don't care about that. What's wrong with adding an inch or two? Isn't that was girls do when they wear heels? Well, let me tell you that as a tall girl this is more of an annoyance than anything else. Don't lie about your height because it does matter to me. If you don't list it in your profile, I automatically swipe left and assume you're short. Today thanks to Sarah we have a guy demonstrating the best way to prove your height.

Movies I Watched

I'm trying something new here on the blog where I talk about the movies that I've watched this month. Some may be new releases and others could be older but still enjoyable or horrible nonetheless. Either way I'll share my opinions on them and we'll just go from there, yeah? I know there's so many movies out there but maybe I'll have some you haven't seen and spark your interest.

Bumble - Changed My Mind

As I mentioned before I had my friend Annie start using Bumble where she lives, just to get out there and go on more dates. Now, she recently had a guy finally start messaging her after all but disappearing back in July. Yeah, it's been three months but you know, we'll give Marcos the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he doesn't check the app often or he got busy, because life does happen. Today though we're going to see what happened when Marcos magically returned to Bumble!

Tinder - Shit Show

There are some profiles you see that just make you laugh because the person is just so honest. That's something I can always appreciate seeing as how I recently had a guy lie about having kids on one of the apps. Listen, just being up front makes a difference so today's guy Dustin really deserves the kudo points for doing just that. Let me share with you, in his own words: welcome to the shit show.

OkCupid - Fake Fan

I always find it interesting when people want you to prove that you're a "real" fan of something. As if knowing a bunch of background information or trivia means that you're any more of a fan than someone else. We all enjoy things in our own ways. I can't say I know every little detail when it comes to my favorite tv shows but I still enjoy them. People just enjoy things in different ways. Today there was a guy who thought that it was time to make a liar out of someone saying they liked anime or even video games.

Tinder - Dem Apples

I love a good profile where people talk about themselves and actually share information that I can work with. I am sick of people just saying they are looking for a hook up or someone to take them on a tour of the Strip. That's not why I am on any dating app and trust me, I know it is Tinder and that's what a lot of people use it for, but I've met plenty of people on the app actually looking for a relationship. Now, were they right for me? No, sadly they weren't but Tinder is just the most used app at the moment so it's easier to find possible matches. Now, let's get onto today's guy who has very strong opinions on apples.

Tinder - Carry 3 Cows

Today I thought I'd share a funny set of screenshots someone sent me from them using Tinder. I'm laughing at them and I can't stop laughing because clearly someone is having way more fun than I am on the dating apps. Perhaps this is how I should set up my profile to be just to have an enjoyable time. I've seen it done before and I doubt it will be the last time.

Tinder - No Thanks

Some people are just total creeps. That much has been made very clear to me from the start of this dating blog and my dating adventures using dating apps. It even extends onto other social media apps in the form of messages on Instagram and such. I guess it can be best to leave everything private when it comes to social media and not talk to other people, or even leave it so they can't message you. A guy on Tinder found my friend's Instagram account and started sending the following messages, which is one of the reasons I don't add my social media to my dating profiles.

Bumble - No Dog Pic

As I mentioned before my friend has been using Bumble for the first time and showing me some of her possible matches that she has gotten. Even though she isn't in Vegas it certainly proves interesting how guys seem to be on the same page when it comes to how they decide to fill out their profiles. One would think that it is a good practice to put their best foot forward when it comes to trying to meet someone new or even possibly date them, right? Well, today Eli is showing us how not to do that.

Bumble - Knight Errant

I can not stress enough how important it is to fill in your profile and say something that is relevant about you. It helps to start a conversation because then there is something to talk about or some common ground/interests. There's always guys who put something cheesy but it is easy to do a fun spin on it. Today we have a guy who thought he was being creative by saying he was a knight in shining armor but it turns out he isn't a knight in regards to anything. Let's get to the fun conversation shall we?

Annie's Second Bumble Date!

Can you believe a second date has happened? I was in shock as well and a bit excited for my friend Annie. I mean, having some success on Bumble is always great especially when it's your first time using it. If you haven't read about Annie's first date then click on over to read that post before continuing with this one. It will just help to set the tone so you know what all happened. Then when you read this post you will be able to really form an opinion on things. I mean, I know I all ready know what I think about this second date so let's get to it.

Travel Tuesday - Seattle Underground Tour

Did you know that present day Seattle is built on top of the previous city? I know that I didn't! Kind of strange to think that though, right? Well, when you learn the history about Seattle it all slowly starts to make sense. I went on a tour of the underground city that still has remnants to this day, including skylights from present day sidewalks lighting the way. I thought I'd share a little of what I experienced so that you could try it out for yourself!

Annie's First Bumble Date!

I mentioned on Twitter that while up in Idaho with a friend I had them download the Bumble dating app. For the sake of this post we're going to call my friend Annie just to make things easier. Up in Idaho dating can be a bit rough apparently because Annie doesn't drink so she isn't going out to bars to meet up with guys or anything like that. Also Idaho is a pretty big state and some cities and counties can be pretty far spread out so meeting people can become more of a chance encounter. Let's get into the fun of teaching her about Bumble and how it led to a first date!

Tinder - "Dating Coach"

I always laugh when I see a profile that says they are a dating coach. Is it bad that I find it amusing that people think saying they are a dating coach means they will have a better chance of scoring a date? That clearly isn't the case as far as I'm concerned and honestly what would be the point in matching? I'm certain they wouldn't have much better tips than the ones that I give here on my blog for free. So take note dating coaches, I'm coming for your job because it really shouldn't even need to be a thing. Common sense just isn't that common.

OkCupid - 3rd Time No Charm

I've said it before and I'll say it again, people need to pay attention to profiles on dating apps. Most of the time they are quite telling in regards to whether or not a conversation needs to happen. I've seen plenty that make me immediately swipe left, no matter how attractive the person may be. Today I present to you someone who didn't quite understand that a boring first message and not paying attention to a profile proves that the third time is not always a charm.

Tinder - You've Got A Friend In Me

As I mentioned on Twitter I am visiting a friend and decided to have them download a few of the dating apps that I've been using. I was thinking that since she lives somewhere else maybe she would get different results than myself. To start off with I had her download Tinder and let's just say after a few swipers I wasn't terribly surprised by what she saw but she was definitely a bit horrified. Warning, your childhood may be ruined.

OkCupid - Papa Sloth?

Today I have to share with you a message I received that definitely stood out from the usual messages. Someone took notice of my picture with a sloth, which is slightly surprising because usually I only get comments from girls on Bumble BFF about it. Either way the guy on OKCupid decided to send me a first message in relation to the picture, which sounds good in theory, but boy once you read it I hope you see how much he failed. Please enjoy and maybe be as confused as I am.

Coffee Meets Bagel - Ain't That Shawty

It has been a while since a dating post thanks to life but boy do I have a bit of a doozy for you all today. I was on Coffee Meets Bagel because sometimes I can get a good conversation on there. The whole one possible match every 24 hours makes it a little difficult sometimes but then again if I have coffee beans to spend I can match with someone who has liked me all ready in my discovery tab. Anyways, want to meet someone who doesn't have a bright future? Here we go.

Life Update As Promised

I know I promised to update you all on my life a few weeks ago, or maybe even longer. If I'm being honest at this point time is just sort of melding together so it is one big mess. But either way I've now finally sat down to type this up and let you all know what's been going on, which will help explain the lack of posts on my end as well as the funny dating app stories because I haven't really had time for them. Let's get to it, shall we?

Guest Post - Disability Dating

This is a first for the blog! A guest post! Meghan sent me the idea and I thought it was great and figured this different perspective would be eye opening. I mean, plenty of people like to think they know everything but why not hear from someone actually experiencing it? Anyway, on to the post.

Tinder - Faithfully Mistreated

I think everyone can agree that talking about an ex is not something to bring up immediately in any situation when first starting out dating someone new. I mean, there's a point in a relationship where you may mention that you were previously engaged or something along those lines but bringing up an ex sounds like you're reminiscing about them. It sounds like you miss them and want them back, which is not something anyone really wants to hear. I think on the dating apps it is the same way and there is being upfront and then there's oversharing.

7 Automatic Turn Offs

This post relates to after meeting someone on a dating app because we all know how good I am at bashing profiles and calling them out for being ridiculous. I'm sure that most of this list could be applied to people in general but that's beside the point. Either way I have a few people in mind as I type this up so it might get a little more detailed at times. I have met guys that fit in almost every category for me and that's kind of a blessing in disguise because I know when to just call things off and walk away. Plus it helped make this list so bonus!

Tinder - Nudes Sir?

I apologize for the delay in posts as of late. I've been going through a bit of a personal crisis but to those of you who follow me on Twitter you know a little about what's going on. Either way I plan to post about that later so let's get back to the fun dating app posts! Now today we have an oldie but a goodie that I found online. Honestly, it is hard not to laugh because I think the dating app game hasn't changed too much so a message like this is something that is still happening. Some men will just never learn.

Plenty of Fish - Easily Get Me

Today's post is about something that can get a bit annoying on dating apps. People asking why you're still single, as if you magically have the answer to that. Trust me if I had a good reason for why I was still single I'd let you know. Hello, my handle is Single Vegas Girl for a reason. I accept that I'm single and I'm fine with it but someone calling it out gets to be ridiculous. Anyways, thanks to Ginger for the screenshot on this conversation.

Coffee Meets Bagel - No Interest in Cuddling

For some reason most of my conversations on the datings apps stay in the dating apps. They usually don't progress to exchanging phone numbers because the conversation dies. There is never any sort of attempt to make plans on the guy's end. Trust me, I can try to make suggestions for something to do but the guy's are just stupid and drop the ball. That means nothing happens so it's fine. I can move on. Today I had a guy who gave me his number so I sent him a text and his response was not what I expected.

Tinder - Big Down There

I love when an actual conversation happens. I mean, a legitimate one where we actually have a discussion of some sort. Sadly this has been super rare as of late. I'm mostly getting guys who are just not even saying anything to me or even responding to my messages. It's quite pathetic and one of the reasons why I'm not really using any of the dating apps much. What's the point of swiping constantly only to get matched without having a conversation happen? Today I'll share a guy with you who decided he was brilliant even with a conversation.

OkCupid - Hit For Coffee

We've talked about introductions plenty of times throughout the life of this blog. Apparently there is no change in the struggle to make an introduction. OkCupid recently made it a bigger deal to be able to respond to other's photos that are on their profile. That can be cool at times, if the person actually says something about your photo. Today the radiologist decided to respond to a photo without actually saying anything about the photo.

Hiking Hualapai Mountains

I always said I would do hiking posts on this blog and now it is happening! It has only taken me almost forever but thank you to everyone on Twitter who voted in the poll I put up. So for these hiking posts I think if anything you can always expect pictures. Be sure to let me know in the comments if there's anything else you think I should include about the hikes. Now, let's get to the hike!

Practice Making Children

Today's post isn't from one of the dating apps because what was said to me was said to my face. Gasp! Flirting in real life? I guess that still happens sometimes. When was the last time that happened? Not for a good long while. It was at least an attempt at flirting in real life. We're going to go over why it didn't work and what was so terrible about it. Brace yourselves because it's pretty bad.

Tinder - 100 Proof Gambling

I'm not going to lie. This is a profile that came up while I was traveling but it stood out to me because it made me angry from the guy's picture alone. Why is that? Well, I'm an Ohio State Buckeye fan. For those of you who don't know that is a college football team. The guy in the dating profile is a Michigan fan. Something you need to know is that Michigan and Ohio are big rivals so that was all ready a turn off. Then I got to read his profile and it just got even worse. Let's break it down.

Coffee Meets Bagel - Makeout Pictures

When you use Coffee Meets Bagel you get one guy as a potential match every 24 hours. That's just sort of how it goes in order to make connections more meaningful and hopefully long lasting. There is a Discover mode though where you can use your coffee beans (that you get for free using the app but you can also pay real money to buy them) to pay to like someone. I had no possible matches so I was given the option to go to Discover and select a guy to like for free! Now that I'm explaining this it sounds quite weird to pay to like people but that is not the point of today's story. No, it's about bad photos as profile pictures.

Tinder - Sniffr

Today I have a fun one for all of you that just makes for a good laugh. I'm probably going to talk about my thoughts on OkCupid switching up things on the app in another post later this week so be on the lookout for that when it happens. For now, enjoy Ian who has a great sense of humor and knows what girls are really after on the dating apps.

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Tinder - Beneath Me

Today I have another profile to present to you that just serves to be a little too unrealistic. Maybe our guy Boomer is being realistic and I just don't know what is to be expected anymore. What can I say though, I seem to keep finding all the strangest profiles on Tinder lately so there's no escaping them. I would understand if Boomer was trying to be funny but that doesn't seem to be the case. An added "lol" to the end of his sentences might help but I don't think so. Let's get to it shall we?

Tinder - Married Change

I get it, a lot of people use Tinder for hooking up with people. That's what some people are looking for and who am I to try and bash that? However, I draw the line when it comes to someone who is married trying to use Tinder to hook up with people. I mean, honestly this isn't Ashley Madison still a thing? If you want to have an affair why are you trying to involve innocent people who want nothing to do with that sort of thing? Let's get to today's fool Tyler, who is married and that won't change.

Coffee Meets Bagel - Sinister Past Life

It's been a while since I've done a post about Coffee Meets Bagel. I guess we'll be starting the new year right by reintroducing everyone to the fact that it does still exist! I just haven't been using it as much because the whole "one person every 24 hours" gets old. Especially when most of the days that I check it I am sent to the Discover section where I can spend my "coffee beans" to like someone in there who has potential. That or I get a free take for the day because they don't have anyone for me but that's not as fun. Anyways, let's get to the fun of a sinister past life shall we?
