Message was dating industry as directionless as people say. I couldnxt live without this one time she saw a glass of varied and th century i dialled into this. Although I was still nervous, after that initial approach, chatting to Rob note not Harold, as I'd guessed quickly felt as easy as talking to a mutual friend at a house party.
We exchanged numbers and have been chatting ever since. I pictured professional, like-minded Londoners who'd signed up because they were too busy to go looking for dates, or perhaps even people who had "app fatigue", too.

Pushing myself out of my comfort zone, and actually looking at men outside of a screen has shown me just how many opportunities there are to meet people day to day. High five to me. I'd prefer to see what he looks like surfing, in a onesie, or having sundowners on Koh Samui to get a broader picture of him first. And let's face it: It means someone loves fun? As opposed to most other people who hate fun?
