It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.
He wasn't supposed to stay the night, but he lived 45 minutes away, it had snowed earlier, and I lived in a very rural area with a lot of hills and curves.
So he decided he was going to stay that night instead of driving home.
He had met my son, so we had to ask: Do we have a future? I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm just going with it. But I liked him back, and he messaged me right away. If he seemed normal, we'd have a drink, rather than building up this idea of who he is. On the site we used, they have a question that asks the things you can't live without, and I wrote was bad for the eyes and something about the evil eye. I actually forgot his name — I only remembered that he was no. When I got home, he texted me that he was deleting his account, and I was like, OK. It was the beginning of summer in New York, and every weekend was busy.
We'd been on a few dates, but it was the first time I'd seen his apartment.
So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.
Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later.
Between the office, happy hour, and yoga class, you'd think it would be easy to find the S. So, to help you feel a little bit better about a potentially rotten date of your own, we got seven hopeless romantics to tell us about their virtual connection gone wrong.
Yet, even though we know plenty of couples who wound up in a serious relationship — or got hitched — from a cyber-dating experience, not everyone is so lucky in love.
We're right here with you."I went on a four-hour (FOUR-HOUR) Tinder date with a match who proceeded to walk me through the intricacies of Excel. Hours." -Jo, 22"I met a guy on Tinder and drove to a different state just to meet up with him.
Every day he charted his height, weight, what he ate that day, what he weighed, what he read, watched, who he talked to, etc. When I found him on Facebook later that night—after we hooked up—I realized he was cheating on his girlfriend with me. " -Ellen, 22"A group of us went to Miami for spring break, where we used Tinder as a way to figure out where to go each night.
This was around 18 months ago, and he still messages me from time to time with a "hey," or my favourite, "I miss you." Met a guy who seemed to be decent.
