One man went from asking me about spelunking to suggesting we would make beautiful babies.
Needless to say, it was an abrupt shift in our conversation. They sit in my matches folder like unexplored potential. Maybe we'd have great chemistry – if only one of us made the next move. I'm usually called away by mothering, chores, and paid work.
Tinder's strength is that it easily tells you when there is a mutual attraction. For me, the benefits of using a dating app far outweigh its drawbacks.
And rather than wishing on a star, I will take matters into my own hands, swiping right towards my next romance.
While I've had my share of ridiculous, pointless come-ons, I've also met men interested in real dating.
