Several months ago, I was introduced to a girl who met her husband on Instagram.I feel like I need to give you another moment to let that sink in before I go any further.
Needless to say, I pretended my name was Jessica and I was just there looking for “my friend.” Tinder-fail.

I don’t know how it happened; he was from Georgia, she was from Saskatchewan and you know just as well as I do that someone had to be the creep in that situation. The point is that now you won’t be nearly as shocked to know that I’ve been going on dates all over Kamloops thanks to an app called Tinder (think Hot or Not meets text-messaging). It was new and it was also a death wish (although part of this could have been that I set my range to reach Miami and we all watch enough to know that’s a terrible idea.) I showed up for a first date in Daytona Beach with a nice-sounding guy and ended up being greeted by an entire baseball team.They want something more meaningful in a relationship.No “come meet me and my posse of guys with baseball bats.” No “meet me l8r for sum fun” — just a bunch of guys who were interested in what I did for fun and in why I made my tagline “I freely admit I pee in the shower.” (What? Tinder works in a smaller community because you still have to behave under the assumption that the girl you’re taking out is the little sister of your old roommate, and no one messes with the little sister. Just make sure you set your age preferences ahead of time, because I accidentally liked seven 19 year olds the other night — and, at that age, boys don’t care whose sister you are.So do you.) So I did what any girl would do — got bored of talking and started asking them out.
