Observations on Tinder from somebody who has a boyfriend

“U going out?”

Apparently my ability to go out is really import to people. Guys want to know how often I do it. And if I am doing it that particular night. I have been asked: “U going out” on numerous occasions. Chances are, if I am on Tinder, I am usually in my Pjs with my retainer in merely looking for something to do before my sleepiness completely engulfs me. When I am out having a life, I don’t go on Tinder. I go on Tinder when I am actively searching for conformation that I am not repulsive. This usually occurs around 1 am on a week night while in bed. alone.

Listen up men of Tinder! If it is a Tuesday night at 12:19am, I am probably not “going out” so don’t bother asking.

What kind of line is “U going out” anyway???

What happen to “I want to take you out”

Or maybe I am completely missing the point of Tinder? Yea I guess so, since I am just using it as a form of entertainment. I am a horrible person. Sorry.

Tinder dating tip #1: mention that you are going out tonight and every night for the rest of forever. You will come off as super mysterious and very alluring, and everyone will want you.

2014: the year of the lolly pop

Hey!

My main resolution this year is to blog. For real. The last 6 months have been a whirlwind.

Goals for 2014

1. Learn how to drive. Yes, I am 23 years old and I still don’t know how to drive. 

2. Go on brithright. 

3. Move out! 

4. Learn Hebrew.  

5. Find a boyfriend that isn’t a narcissistic asshole.

6. Run a 50 mile race and run a 3:35 marathon.

My progress:

1. KINDA ACCOMPLISHED. I took the written test to obtain my permit. I can say with some certainty that I can functionally drive a car. I have even driven on the highway. I have yet to take driving exam though. However, I am closer to accomplishing this goal that I have ever been before. 

2. ACCOMPLISHED! I returned from birthright yesterday! It was amazing! Definitely a wonderful growing experience. I am in love with Israel. Parts were difficult, but I am very glad I was brave enough to sign up (I didn’t know a soul on the trip and was worried about making friends). Luckily, I found two girls on the trip that made the whole thing an absolute blast. 

3. ALMOST ACCOMPLISHED! I am moving out of my parent’s house in two short weeks!                          

4. NEEDS ALOT OF WORK! I am trying to find Hebrew classes or a Hebrew tutor, but I am super motivated to learn. 

5. ITS COMPLICATED…enough said. I’ll dive into more detail in future posts. 

6. HALFWAY THERE? I plan to run a 50 mile race in May. And I am signed up for two marathons in March. I’ve lost a lot of fitness, as I wasn’t able to run while I was in Israel. Additionally, I’ve been experiencing some strain/injury in my right leg. 

I am currently on my way to Vermont. And its snowing in the amtrak train! That is something you don’t see everyday…

Its snowing on the amtrak train!

Happy New Year! What are your goals?
