The first few days were sheer hilarity. Looking at what people decide to put down on their profile never fails to amuse me. SO many shirtless pictures. I was also surprised that I started receiving matches right away (hello self-esteem boost) and lots of guys started to talk to me.
Here are some of my favorite stories
Muscle Man: He wasn't really my type (not into meat heads) but I saw that we had about 50 friends in common and he was LDS. We chatted for about a days about nothing serious. Later that week I went to a party and who should walk up to me but this man?! He yelled, "WHITNEY!" from across the party. I responded with a friendly hug, then he stood back, flexed his muscles and said, "don't I look better in person?" Barf. I avoided him the rest of the night.
Serious Awkward: Again, we had a bunch of friends in common so I decided to talk to him. He got my phone number and called and texted me repeatedly one evening and asked me out each night for five days in a row. It happened to be a busy week for me and I asked him to give me a little more notice. He then stalked me on Facebook, got real creepy and I backed off. I was at a friend's house one evening when HE WALKED IN. He didn't say one word to me. I was so uncomfortable I said I had to leave. Ummmm.
Creep: His only message to me? "Heyyyy sweeeeets." I never responded.
Pretty Sure He's the Love of My Life: I posted about this on Facebook but it's too good not to share. His first message to me was, "I WANNA BE ON YOU!" I responded with my own Anchorman quote, obviously. I told him my brain went from 'wow he is creepy' to 'oh my gosh he is amazing' in two seconds. He said, 'I've gotta tell you, that is a pretty standard reaction to me. 2 seconds of creepiness, a lifetime of admiration.' Then I read more of his profile and realized how hilarious he was. And he hasn't responded to me and so #fail.
Just No: His first message to me was, "I am LDS too." I didn't know what to say to that. Neither did half of my friends. I read his profile a little more and it was the creepiest thing I had ever read, he told girls that he could give them cute lil' blue-eyed babies if they dated him. No thanks.
Oh and there was that one time I saw my cousin on Tinder. Apparently he went on a date with a girl from the app and it went well! So there you go.
