Before you all
two think that my entire dating life has turned around and is going swimmingly, I feel the need to remind you that this is, of course, ONLINE dating, so there will always be those clueless people that make you scratch your head and wonder how they have survived so long. Here’s just a couple while I work on my next actual date post! *oooh, the suspense*
Tilted Kilt: chatted a bit on Bumble. Didn’t have much in common but what the hell, right? He suggested we meet. I agreed. He suggested that we meet at Tilted Kilt. I disagreed. For those of you not having had the pleasure of experiencing a Tilted Kilt, it’s sort of an upscale Hooters. Except that the uniforms are smaller. Much smaller. And the waitresses’ boobs are lifted to just about 2″ below their chin. He didn’t understand why I wanted to go somewhere else, so I explained, simply, that I am not a guy. Duh. We never actually ended up meeting. No great loss.
Clueless: to recap, on bumble the girl swipes left or right to signify interest. If you swipe right on someone who has also swiped right, you are able to communicate. So I swiped right. He apparently swiped right. I sent a quick (and boring) ‘Hi, you came up as a match today so I wanted to say hello’ blah, blah. He writes back and the conversation goes something like this:
him: huh, I don’t remember ever seeing you before or swiping right
me: that’s very flattering
him: oh, sorry, I didn’t mean that
him again: but I don’t remember seeing you at all
me: nice of you to apologize, but then you said it again….
mutual: unmatch …
There have been a few other ‘interesting’ matches, but I will save those for another day. Stay tuned for date #2 recap with 007!
