When Valerie matched with this guy on Bumble, she probably wasn’t expecting that much. After all, dating apps are typically roulette wheels of disappointment, just hours of idle chatter broken up only by the occasional creepy dude.

But after saying “hey” something really cool happened between the two of them. They bonded over how much modern dating freaking sucks and they actually have a super…real conversation.

“I wish I didn’t have to use this stupid phone to meet you,” the guy says before pointing out that we are all too engrossed in social media to have everyday conversations with random people out and about.

Valerie agrees 100%.

They both agreed that modern dating sucks majorly, so they decided to break the rules. Everything seems so artificial these days, with people more concerned about how many Instagram likes they get than finding real connections with people. Random conversations with strangers is “creepy,” even while Facebook stalking is totally acceptable. It seems kinda backwards to me.

Maybe we all need to ditch the rules and give someone a chance? TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
