Bumble dating, Bumble rocks, excitement over a first date, first date, OKCupid sucks, real blind date, sparks and fireworks
“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life
Hi everyone, I am stopping by quickly to say I have a date tonight. Please send me good vibes. This is not just another date.
I just joined Bumble last week. It is so much better than OKCupid and all the other sites I have been on before. If I were to rate them, this would be the order:
- Plenty of Fish
My rating has to do with the matches I made, and that is probably sheer luck. They all have their share of fake profiles and take time and energy to search through all the profiles.
I have come across only 1 fake profile in Bumble, and all the guys that I have messaged have been polite and real. Perhaps it is because it is my first week 🙂
Oh, and guess who was the first person that matched up with me? The guy from the last date. I don’t get it why he would try to match with me again.
“It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.” ― Nicholas Sparks
I have 3 dates lined up, but it is the one tonight that has me all giddy.
This doesn’t feel like just another date. I am excited about it, and I seldom get excited about dates anymore.
I don’t really know why I am this excited. If I were to describe a reason, there isn’t really one. We don’t even know much about each other. Because I don’t have much information, I was not able to do all my Google research.
We have been exchanging messages for a total of 4 days. And it wasn’t that many messages. We didn’t even exchange numbers or spoke on the phone. And that is perfect for me, as I don’t care for speaking on the phone before meeting anyone.
There is just something about the easy flow of the messages. I didn’t feel pressured to talk on the phone. I hate to be cliché, but I do feel like I know him for ages.
There wasn’t a single moment since I scheduled the date when I am coming up with reasons to cancel, as I do 99% of the time.
Tonight is all about a feeling. Not necessarily a feeling of love, but a feeling of finding a similar soul. I truly believe I am about to meet a lasting friend.
There something about him, and tonight I will find out. I hope there are sparks.
“I thank you for your courage to expose yourself.
This courage is needed by everyone because without this courage, you cannot hope for any possibility of transformation – into a new world, into a new consciousness, into your authentic being, which is the door to ultimate reality and to the ultimate benediction.”― Osho, Intimacy: Trusting Oneself and the Other
