These days, we’re bombarded with the idea of relationship goals every time we open or turn on any kind of media. Whether it’s an account always tweeting cute couple quotes or your friend posting cute as hell pictures of her and her significant other. The idea is even woven throughout books so it’s impossible for even us introverts to avoid. (Well unless you live under a rock.)
But there are some things that aren’t so #relationshipgoals. And lately, they sure have been romanticized.
*Quick side note: I’ll use the term boyfriend in this post, but this applies to all significant others no matter their gender.Read more…
Y’all absolutely ate up my first edition of my new Let’s Talk About Boys series! And a lot of you were commenting asking me to share my past Tinder experiences, so how could I not?
Here’s the backstory:
I downloaded Tinder in February of my freshmen year of college. I had just broken up with my boyfriend and was feeling super lonely. So silly me turned to an app known for hookups looking for a nice guy who wanted a relationship.
I found the app fun and addicting. I never ran out of guys to swipe through since it was during the school year and the campus was always crawling with thirsty men. The app was so addicting that I would find myself reaching for it instead of Twitter or Instagram most times, and honestly, I didn’t see an issue with that. This was also at a time that I was trying to stay off of social media.
Saying you met your boyfriend online is becoming more and more common, but that doesn’t mean the horror stories and jokes about the subject are going away anytime soon. Some of my favorite content is when people share their dating horror stories, and boy do I have a lot, so I thought I’d make it fun and share some with y’all.
I sent out a tweet a few weeks ago about wanting to join a bunch of dating sites just to see what happens and then blog about it. The positive feedback to that tweet was so immense that not going through with it would have been a crime.
