Day 29 of 100 Indian Tinder Tales
“I joined Tinder last year after a very abusive relationship. I thought it may be a good way to meet new people and who knows I’d just be someone’s Tinderella.
Even though I had some good conversations with a few people, I was never able to score a single date. And the top two reasons why I got rejected:
1. my height ( I am four-eight),
2. I didn’t want to have sex without getting into a serious relationship.
And everyone was looking for sex or wanted to send me dick pics.
Anyway, last year, I met a guy on Tinder with whom I shared a mutual friend. His profile was different because it didn’t have many pics nor was there much info about him. We got talking but it never ended in a date because he was always so quiet. Heck he was the only guy there who didn’t ask me for sex. A few days into my Tinder experience, I deleted my profile.
Three months later, my abusive ex contacted me again just to tell me how fat and short I was and to show off his skinny new girlfriend. I started to feel like a total loser. I didn’t know what to do.
Coincidently that very same day I found the quiet Tinder guy’s profile while lurking through my friend’s profile. I sent him a friend request on Facebook and he recognised me immediately and we started talking.
I had been rejected so many times and decided to offer him sex so he wouldn’t reject me. But surprisingly he said he wanted to know me better first. So we planned to go on a date. We found out that we have a lot in common and he had no problem with my height (which is a very big deal for me).
We have been dating for four months now and I have never been happier in my life.
When I was searching for a friend, all I got was different options of fuck buddies. And when I decided to be a fuck buddy, I found my boyfriend!”
