I figured that the more men I met up with for drinks, the sooner I'd find myself in a relationship.
So I said yes to everyone, and stacked my calendars full of drink dates, walking dates, coffee dates, and dinner dates.
A year later, I get a call from Alex, asking if he can travel cross-country to visit me, stay in my house, and meet my parents. " -Amanda, 23"I was using the same opening line on Bumble for every guy—' You can only listen to one song for the rest of your life. '—when one of them (we'll call him Alan) replied, ' Does that line actually work for you?
' Then another replied, ' What Alan said.' Apparently, they were friends who happened to be together when I messaged them both the same thing!
And then when I kicked him out, he asked me for my Wi-Fi password so he could get an Uber." -Michelle, 24"I matched with a guy on Bumble, and we arranged to meet at a Mexican restaurant.
I see him waiting outside and attempt to quicken my pace (no one wants to awkwardly make eye contact for an entire block)—all the while trying to strut my stuff, of course.
Haven't online-dated since." -Christen, 27"A year or two ago, I went out with a guy who actually was very nice, charming (British), and he took me on three dates.
Before telling me—during sex—that he had a girlfriend.
I was mortified, so I blocked them—it was the first thing I could think to do." -Veronica, 22"After chatting on Tinder for a couple of weeks, I decided to grab drinks with this guy at a local bar. I'm sorry, but implying I'm a prostitute is going to get you nowhere." -Emily, 22"Once a guy insisted that I tell him my SAT score when I was talking about my job in college admissions.
I was a few beers and a couple hours in when I decided to call it a night. I thought that was super weird and didn't want to, but he kept asking so I finally told him.
I found out about it because I made some sort of inappropriate joke, and he followed up his laugh with, ' You're about to lose a bunch of people in my office a bunch of money.' I made it about 30 minutes until he started pointing out specific people in the bar and telling me what sort of plans he was going to make with them for us (some many months in advance).
I went into the bathroom, called my roommate, and had her come get me.
