Tinder is a remarkable dating app but shit gets real when someone asks you for your phone number.
Your paranoia is acceptable because it’s easy to block someone on Tinder but once you give out your number, it’s difficult to back out.
But I do know what it’s like to be the girl that is asked out by a wide variety of guys, in a wide variety of ways. He wasn’t a classically handsome man, but there was instant chemistry and I thought he was so cute.
When I went to leave the store, he stopped me and gave me one of the store business cards.
Straight-up hitting seems uncouth and hey you are not someone who is awfully desperate!
And you aren’t someone who wants a Vodafone pug after you (who follows you wherever you go.) It is necessary to categorise people you right swipe on Tinder as there are different types of guys on Tinder and you can do it only when you have a considerable conversation.
I avoided picking up the phone for any local number I didn’t recognize. He said I knew him as a customer (I worked in a men’s shop), but he didn’t want to reveal who he was. A few months later, I received a mailing tube with a bow on it at the store where I worked. I opened the tube, and it was the original movie poster for starring Katharine Hepburn. His voice seemed a little familiar, but by that time, I was already in a relationship with my husband – one that had started out fast and grown like wildfire. He just kept coming back to the store and hanging out for a few minutes, chatting with me and the women I worked with.
His approach creeped me out and I hated that I felt pressured to give him my digits. One day I received a note saying I had captured his attention during a conversation we’d recently had. He finally called me at the store a few months later, if I can remember correctly. Finally, one day, he said that if I wanted to see the new movie we’d been discussing (, it turns out), he’d love to tag along.

Then he disappeared into the entry alcove of the bar, curled over his cell phone for ten minutes. I thought maybe I liked him, but he made me a little uncomfortable, too. He looked at me until finally, under some weird pressure, I gave it to him. A note explained that he’d seen this poster and thought of me, because of my favorite old movie. I scanned my memory for days, trying to remember whom I’d discussed this with in the last six months… I had to say no to Dex’s request to finally meet in person.
