Day 36 of 100 Indian Tinder Tales
Sj from Delhi writes about gettinng lucky and finding love on Tinder.
“After going through two tedious, abusive relationships, I had given up on love. This is how my Tindering phase began. I met some nice people, but the idea of a future never really blossomed through any of those meetings. So, I uninstalled it seeing that it was just boring and served no real purpose.
Then at a Holi party in office, while talking to a friend I decided to give Tinder one more chance. I saw this guy’s profile and noticed that I have a mutual friend with him who was just standing next to me in the party. Turns out that the mutual friend had been this Tinder guy’s roommate for a while. I asked him if the guy is nice or not. He said yes, and I swiped right instantly.
Few minutes later, I got a ‘Hi’. We talked through our insobriety as he was drinking, and I was already drunk. After 2-3 days of talking, and me delaying the meet up. He finally asked me to meet him. I said ok,
We met at Connaught Place, had chai, talked about everything under the sun till it was time to head back. He generously offered to drop me home, and I obliged. As soon as I was getting off of the car, he asked me if I’m free tomorrow. I really liked the guy, so I said yes.
The next day we met again for chai. Drove around the city till 4 in the morning as I couldn’t go home because people were partying at my place, and I needed some peace. So he asked me to come over to his since it was already so late. This whole time, he didn’t touch me, or made a move, so I agreed. But as soon as we reached his place, all hell broke loose, and so did our buttons. We had crazy sex that morning. May I add, the best.
He dropped me to my office, and we decided to meet up again. We kept meeting everyday. A few days into this, he expressed that he loves me. I was a bit taken aback, because I surely liked him but I wasn’t sure about love. I told him this as clearly as possible, and he understood.
Then, one night when he was staying back at my place, I realized that I was falling for him. I knew I couldn’t and shouldn’t let him go because honestly he was the best man I have met in my life. And I know this because I have been abused by every man in life, and I mean every.
It’s just been two months now, but I have never been more sure about anything or anyone else this much. We have started living together although temporarily. But now, I am all the more sure about him.
My story seems impossible considering that it’s Tinder, but I got lucky. I actually found love on Tinder. And I have never been this happy ever. “
