Swipe for Love

Left… left… left… right… left…right…

Boom, a connection!

Ok, let’s do this.

Hello! How’s your day going?

Hi! It was so-so, but things are looking up

Now that you’ve messaged. ; )

Urghhh… that was cringeworthy

But let’s not judge.

Maybe they’re a diamond in the rough.

Hmmm… That’s good for you.

How are you doing today?

It was good, am questioning that now.

Backspace. Let’s not be snarky on Day 1

But save it up for Day 11

It was good. Work, dinner with the family, the usual.

So, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Travelling mostly. I’ve been to 24 countries so far


Wow, that’s great!

What has been your most memorable experience so far?

Petting the tiger! It was unreal!

You mean petting the drugged tiger?!

Sounds lovely

So, what do you do to unwind?

There’s a lot of reading and some Netflix

Travelling whenever I can

Cool! How many countries have you visited?

Ummm… I don’t keep a count of the number

of visas and stamps in my passport. : P

Oh ok. So what plans this weekend?

Want to meet for coffee, tea, or me? ; )  ; )


Love, after all, was not found through GPS.

Great story. I like the abrupt end. It makes us think of our preferred way forward.


Thank you!
