Intro message for online dating
In the middle of my swipe-fest, Tinder intervenes with the electronic equivalent of a chastity belt. It appears I am too promiscuous for the most notorious hook-up app in the land. Even the ones with aggressive amounts of question marks.
I still don’t message anyone first but still, so far, 22 have messaged me.Are you looking for a Bay Guardian story that was published before 2015? The print and online articles from the Bay Guardian newspaper and from 2006–2014 are back online at the Bay Guardian archives, and you can search the archive at this link. Also, take a look at our Issuu account for searchable PDFs of our most recent issues.We will be adding more to the archives in coming months, so stay tuned! It’s not my style but I don’t want to risk being late for work, so I send them all cheery good mornings and a sun emoji.Later, I get talking about dating with a colleague and he helpfully informs me I have ‘terrible banter’.In the School of Sciences at CBU, we have many programs in the sciences and mathematics that can prepare you for graduate study and a career as a researcher or professional.
Our programs can also take a more applications orientation and prepare you for a satisfying career that starts right after graduation.
Could this explain why none of the 22 have asked me out yet?
Still, I’m too busy at work to reply to the men again until I get home at 10pm. Some have sent several messages to fill in the gaps.
In real life men hardly ever flirt with me, so it’s a welcome change, even though I’d never date him.
SATURDAY I’m meant to be cooking lunch for some friends but forget to put stuff in the oven in time because I’m so busy swiping right to a guy whose profile pic quite possibly features his wife, two guys who look like an French electro pop duo, a guy in a leopard print cowboy hat, a cartoon man, a man whose intro is ‘with me sex is inevitable’ and ‘Anthony The Cat’.
I don’t understand why they bother swiping right if they’re not going to though.
