The Creepy Experience of Online Dating

Scared-PC-user

Dear Dating Life,

So a week ago I decided to try online dating for the first time since I have the freedom now ( I had a 6 year relationship). Therefore I would like to say….It was creepy as hell!

So at first, I joined Tinder and I quit right after because it was boring and Tinder had some kind of trick where you have to swipe right to like in order to go to another set of people. For some, you can tell who were potential catfish users and of course there were beautiful people who were probably getting a million likes a day.

After quitting Tinder, a friend recommended me trying Okcupid. I admit, I had fun taking these stupid matchmaking questions, but of course, writing my own profile was time consuming.

I chatted with two guys. One guy was very nice, he was French and an engineer. He had a great sense of humor and he was caring. He asked me 1 day later to go out with him ,but it was too soon for me. However, I kept chatting with him.

Another guy I chatted with was a grad student at the same college I graduated from. He was nice, but from the first chat, I had warning signs and I wished I knew sooner to cut him off for good. He acted clingy or perhaps needy. For example, whenever I get a break from Okcupid he would message me with sad emojis wondering if I have lost interest in him. I explained to him that I was busy.

Later we kept chatting on Okcupid and he asked to meet with me in person. I said I would if he agreed to video chat first because meeting people online vs meeting in person is totally different. You never know if the chemistry is real and you can save so much time.

So I was excited yet nervous to finally talk to him and thankfully he was  the same person from the profile picture. However, everything went south!

After the fun basic questions, he started asking personal and inappropriate questions like how thick my legs were and how big my breast were. Of course I replied, “None of your damn business!” I was already ready to shut the call down.

After five minutes of giving him hints that I was no longer interested. I  had to tell him straight up that we was not working.

I immediately stopped the video call app and deleted my Okcupid account all together. You all can judge me all you want, but I rather meet and feel chemistry in person than online.

After that bad experience from the creepy dude, I feel a little bad about disappearing from the french engineer because I enjoyed chatting with him. There was a connection and a sense of calmness with him unlike the creep. However, my body and spirit said that I need to date nobody but myself. I need to focus only on me because the real world has just started and I need to know more about me.

Overall, it was an experience I had to try.

My Ideal Modern Disney Princess

Image,

Dear Life,

I just got off from a slow day at work and that means my tips are going to be less than $20. Oh well. However, the slow day did wake me up for a second because Little Miss Tart slapped another male employee for no certain reason again and the boy just took the poison and swallowed it. Anyway, I do not want to talk about women hitting men because I have already wrote about it from my last blog post. If you are interested about my opinion about whether women have the right hit men, just click here.

Lately, I have been working out at a local gym trying to get my signature weight back. Hopefully my body gets back in shape before the Christmas holidays. You know, the worst part I hate about gaining weight is that its SO EASY! I wish gaining weight is harder than losing weight.  The most hateful body part I hate to gain weight is my face. My face will tell overall if I have gained or lose weight. As soon as I see my cheeks turning into chipmunk cheeks, I have work it off. I refuse to have a fat face.

Lately this week, I have been reviewing Disney princesses like Cinderella, Snow White, and others. Today, I am thinking about writing a Disney princess story, but not like any other princess. I want to write about a princess who is not a princess ,but can be looked up to like she is one of the Disney princesses.

For example, I was thinking of creating a  modern woman who helps people around the world. Maybe she can be a humanitarian. I want to create some story line where issues still occur today like cancer, poverty, or other issues.

For my Disney princess, I am not sure whether she is going to fall in love. I know all of the other Disney princesses fell in love with some prince, or hero. However, my princess is not going to fall in love so quickly like the others. I would rather focus mostly on this character before I add a mate for her. One of my co-workers think I should have the princess be a lesbian, but America is not ready for a first lesbian princess. Besides, I do not want to get involved in controversial stuff like that. I do not have anything against gay rights, but I do believe that we should not mix child television with gay rights. For example, I read an article about people wanting Sesame Street characters Ernie and Bert to get married.  I am okay with gay marriage,but having children cartoons involved is taking it too far.  If they want their children to know about homosexuality, then it should be between the child and the parents.

Starting The School Semester In Style

Audrey-Hepburn-

Dear Morning,

This morning I woke refreshed from the five long days of the week and had a hot cup of tea. It has been a while since I had hot tea because I would usually drink cold sweet tea. It is a southern thing.

I remember when I lived up north in Michigan, I would always ask for sweet tea every time I went out to eat. It took me ten years to know that sweet tea didn’t exist in the the north. So, whenever I wanted sweet tea, I would wait until it was time to visit my grandmother. Now that I live in the south again, I feel more close to home and the sweet tea. haha

Recently, I have finally received my final grades for the summer. I have all As. Yay! From my previous blog posts, I have been nagging and complaining about when I was going to see my final grades. It took a month to wait. A month! They did not even post the final grades until every single student was done with summer classes.

Anyway, I cannot wait for fall semester to start and to start working because I just do not like staying in the house. I would go out and shop but I am on a tight budget. I know the only things that I am going to spend on are books and school supplies. Especially, the books!  My fall semester books are expensive this semester coming up. Therefore, I shall shop until I am dead gorgeous because I am going to shop for the stylish school supplies. School cannot be fun without colorful notebooks and pens to keep you entertained. I really want to buy an antique briefcase to store my supplies just like the picture below:

I love vintage stuff~

Speaking of school supplies, whatever happened to the Lisa Frank school supplies? In case some of you do not remember, here are a few pictures to refresh your memory:

When I was a little girl I used to always bug my Mimi (mother) to buy Lisa Frank’s notebooks and binders for me. I never cared for the stickers and pens. Recently, I have been looking for the notebooks and other stuff, but couldn’t find anywhere in the nearby stores. Weird…

I did a little research about Lisa Frank and what happened to their products. I found the answer to the question and the answer is right here. To make story short, Lisa Frank is now vintage, but according to the Lisa Frank website, you can still buy their products online…yea. Lisa Frank is history, but I have a feeling Lisa Frank will make a future comeback. Who knows? We shall wait and see.
