Day 53 of 100 Indian Tinder Tales
“Fresh out of a terrible break up, I was feeling really vulnerable and gross and hoped that Tinder would get my mind off things.
I met N at a random Starbucks, and we only talked for 30-ish minutes. He was cute and friendly, and there was really no way for me to know what a nut job he would turn out to be.
After the coffee date, I got a text at 2 am: “can we cuddle?”
Even then I remember thinking that was SO weird, but I was in such a terrible state that I assumed he was drunk and let it go.
The next time we met, we went to this Thai place that I love. We decided to split a plate, and when we started eating I said, “you know this is my favorite Thai place in Boston, the Pad Thai is so good.” He looked at me blankly and said, “You’re not going to get fat are you?”
Everyone please know that the only reason I didn’t leave right then is because I wanted my Pad Thai.
I texted him soon after that date and told him we shouldn’t see each other anymore.
Three days later, I got a text from him saying, “I know this will be hard for you but I don’t think we should see each other anymore.”
SIX MONTHS LATER, I get a text from him saying “Why can’t we be friends. Friends who cuddle?”
Since then, I am fully over the break up that led me to N, have met some great guys (both on Tinder and in real life!), and this story remains a favorite with me and my friends.”
