Met my SO on Tinder. I was like you, very skeptical. When my friends was on it, I said all guys are only after one thing. I was that person. After a few years when I was single and ready to mingle, I joined for fun and after a month on it… I met my SO.

We clicked immediately and became exclusive after 2 months. We just signed our purchase agreement on our future house this morning and we’re getting engaged next year. 

I would say there are many guys on Tinder looking for sex, but not all of them. And I’m glad I took a chance on it 🙂

I really like this story:


I was newly single and decided to start browsing dating apps. I downloaded all of the free ones, but I liked OkCupid the most. There were a few guys that I chatted with, but they’d either ghost me or end up being creeps. I was hesitant to meet anyone unless they really wowed me. So I started talking to a guy that seemed pretty decent. He was my age and had a good job. So we made plans on a Friday for our first date that following Monday. He went out of town for the weekend and decided that no contact would make our date my interesting. His mistake. I got home from work that Saturday in a bad mood because a previous ghost had contacted me and said some hurtful stuff. I logged onto OkC and cllicked on a random, newly updated profile. The guy was cute, but four hours from me in a neighboring state. I went back to browsing until I noticed someone had “liked” me. Because I didn’t pay, I could only see who liked me if we both “liked” one another. So I went back to the out of state guys page and clicked like. No match. Okay fine. So I go about my business for a few minutes and then it pops up saying I have a match. This guy had gone back and hit like as well. So we began chatting. He seemed pretty great, but I had some reservations based on his answers to questions on the app. We said good night and I went to bed. The next day at work I messaged him again out of boredom. After a bit he brought up some of the differences that I was concerned about and we talked about them. We ended up chatting until 2 in the morning on the Monday I had this date planned. I texted a friend saying I didn’t want to go on the date because I was already a little bit in love with this new guy. But he encouraged me to keep the date with this other guy. Well I did and it was the longest hour of my life. I practially ran to my car so I could talk to another man. Haha. We met 9 days later and have been together for over a year now. I moved in almost five months ago. He’s the absolute love of my life and I am so glad that I was bored at work and gave him a chance!


I’m also lucky that from first download to meeting him, I was only trying online dating for maybe three months.

I met my soon to be fiance on OKCupid! I recognized one of his friends in his picture so I was able to text him and get the low down on him after he messaged me. He got gold stars from his friend and I value his opinion so I messaged him back. 

Online dating is always a hit or miss. You’ll never truly know who you will click with. But never try never know! 

And actually, my Dad, 2 sisters, brother and I met our SO on OKCupid. So it works!
