I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.
I’ve been so comfortable talking to guys the way I normally would. Some guys just don’t know how to have a good conversation and it gets real boring real quick.
When I downloaded Tinder just for shits and gigs, I wanted to spice things up a little. Be different. Or, try to be. I thought about saying something that was super forward and something that I’d never actually say in a message to someone. Something like:
“Wanna meet up? Let’s hangout.”
I just wanted to know what they would say.
I mean, why not?
I went to Tinder and swiped right on a bunch of cute guys. Some were genuinely so cute and totally my type that I couldn’t even message them for my little “experiment.” Others were cute, but they knew they were cute, so I knew there would be no good connection. You know what I mean?
At first I started sending messages with some fake-confidence. Whatever they’d say in response, I’d just say “nah I’m just kidding.” Why? Because I got anxious. can’t talk to boys without being my normal anxious self.
That “Oh” was truly so sad. Oh my god. I’m sorry, I’m an asshole, I just wanted to see what would happen.
I was nervous to straight up say “wanna fuck?” so I felt like I had to ease into it. Apparently it worked for him.
The consistent “when” made me cringe.
*Google searches “the Jim face”* Yeah. Me.
Listen, I know it’s probably a bit weird to ~experiment~ with a bunch of dudes online. But this was something I kinda wanted to do for myself. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.
How weird would it be if I was super forward with my conversations? What if I said something that I would never actually say? What would happen?
