He wasn't supposed to stay the night, but he lived 45 minutes away, it had snowed earlier, and I lived in a very rural area with a lot of hills and curves.So he decided he was going to stay that night instead of driving home.One of my matches, let's call him Alex, seemed nice and helpful—but I never actually met up with him in person.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.

A few minutes later he dropped something on the floor, and while retrieving it tried to put the toes of my crossed legs in his mouth. I met a guy on Ok Cupid, and we hit it off pretty well.After we hung out a few times, he came over to my place with a bottle of wine and a movie.I could tell he was annoyed that I wasn’t falling all over him after hearing his bragging."Visibly frustrated, he decided to inform me that his ex-girlfriend knew me, and that when she found out we were going on a date, she’d called me a whore.
I was the one who drunkenly suggested having sex in a public bathroom.Spending too much time on Tinder, Bumble, or Ok Cupid will make any sane person yearn for simpler times.You know, like when singles met potential mates at corn husking bees or whatever.After chatting for a couple of weeks, we decided to meet up at a bar.Everything was going really well, until he got a few drinks in him and he began telling me obviously fake or exaggerated stories about how wealthy and successful he is, which was a huge turnoff.This was around 18 months ago, and he still messages me from time to time with a "hey," or my favourite, "I miss you." Met a guy who seemed to be decent.
