  1. Ah man good on you for writing this! I’m planning on writing a post on travel romance (which I will email you about later) soon because it is all kinds of crazy!

    I’ve never been able to master tinder, I redownloaded it when I got to Sydney and got one match which said “Big spoon or little spoon?” My thoughts “I can’t do this.” And I deleted the app again.

    Dating and tinder is such an abstract concept to me, I want to put myself out there and yet I’m put off by how superficial it feels. I choose to go with the wait till it finds me game, but that’s had limited success so far.

    Oh the joys of being a twenty-something ?

    • I feel the same way, like I want to be a part of this trend because it seems to work for so many people, but I just don’t get great vibes from it when I use it myself. However, I’m betting that it’s all in how we use it. If fewer people found it socially acceptable to treat people like garbage because they’re only looking for a casual hookup with them, fewer people would act so superficial. It wouldn’t get them anywhere.

      Yes, so many joys 🙂 at least we all have each other to vent about it with! Looking forward to your email

  2. […] The Tinder Files #5- Gag Reflex– I’m proud of this one not because of the writing that I did for the post, but because of that glorious comeback that popped into my brain at the right moment. Normally these things come five minutes after I’ve sent something average, but I was spot on with that one. If you don’t know the story behind my Tinder Files, you can check out the short version at the top of each TF post, or the long version here. […]
