Now that I’ve “sampled” some of the Tinder offerings, I realize that sometimes people don’t know when it’s not a match. They keep attempting to make a connection for whatever reason, but it’s getting nowhere.

After a few weeks, I’ve found some decent (code: literate and responsive) guys to have … Continue reading #MyTinderSeries: Now I have to date?

So, I noticed something weird my first couple of days on Tinder. My matches were disappearing. Of course as a newbie–and an old person–I thought it was something wrong with Tinder. Turns out it’s something wrong with me. Guys were unmatching me. It’s a problem I’ve had for years. Over 40 years, in fact: I’m … Continue reading #MyTinderSeries: Unmatching and Judgement
