I drank coffee, he drank green tea, and we talked for hours about politics and change.When he told me that he read women writers because he couldn't relate to them, I should have fled then and there.
Naturally, the topic turned to men and the atmosphere in the room began to resemble a slumber party. We sat side by side, swiping right and left, exclaiming with glee when we matched with someone. I had tried (and still use) other dating applications but the pool of men I had been meeting began to feel limited.Tinder's strength is that it easily tells you when there is a mutual attraction. For me, the benefits of using a dating app far outweigh its drawbacks.And rather than wishing on a star, I will take matters into my own hands, swiping right towards my next romance.On the flip side, many of the men are there for hook-ups.For every man seeking dating or romance on Tinder, there are probably 10 others seeking to hook-up, or to become friends with benefits.In my late 40s, I never thought I would turn to a "hook-up" app for romance. After my marriage of 12 years ended, I spent most of the past decade building a successful career that allowed me the time and flexibility I needed to raise my son and assembling a close-knit circle of friends.
Although my ex-husband and I co-parent our now 12-year old son, my son spends 75% of his time at my home.
Then we looked for a place to continue the conversation, gave up, and he brought me home, walked me to the door and gave me a goodnight kiss.
He had a wonderful combination of piercing and wide-ranging intelligence, a sense of humor, and a good job –he played guitar in a metal band.
One man went from asking me about spelunking to suggesting we would make beautiful babies.
Needless to say, it was an abrupt shift in our conversation. They sit in my matches folder like unexplored potential. Maybe we'd have great chemistry – if only one of us made the next move. I'm usually called away by mothering, chores, and paid work.
I didn't and we dated for a few more months but parted ways once we determined we wanted different things from a relationship. We matched on Tinder and he immediately asked me to dinner.
