Tinder freaks? Yeah right.
I came to London more than 2 weeks ago thinking that I could use that time to settle in, figure out the area, open a bank account, find a bar that I love and maybe, just maybe, make a couple of new friends.
I’ve done none of it.
What I did do though, is join Tinder.
When I was still in Riga, I was comforting myself with a thought, that London is a city of 9 million, historically filled with freaks and crazies to keep me entertained. And where do we find freaks and crazies? On online dating apps.
So I joined tinder, had numerous boring conversations with strangers and occasionally went on 3 tinder dates.
Date 1: I met with this gorgeous looking guy that had a body of a greek god, recent law school graduate, solicitor in training. He loved his mom, had a passion for photography and travel. Real catch for some, unfortunately a total 0/10 on my freak scale.
Date 2: Met a really nice indian guy with a degree in politics, working in market research. Likes to have fun, holds his liquor (huge plus!) and had a great sense of humor. Again, great catch, but zero freak. On a freak scale I’d give him 2/10
Date 3: Went out with a musician. Musician sounds like great deal of crazy, until you actually meet him and realize that he’s a concert pianist, totally dedicated to his craft and Sheldon Cooper in the world of academic music. Again, great catch, but too little crazy. 4/10
Now, I feel like Tinder has completely failed me when it comes to meeting freaks and weirdos in London.
Which is why I’m so happy I’m starting my studies with you guys!
