Jay’s Best of 2020: Tinder Woes Continue
2020 has been one heck of a year. It's been real and it's been fun, but it certainly hasn't been real fun.
Having said that, over the next few days I want to look back at some of my favorite stories of the year. These may be popular, well-clicked on stories. Or stories that I simply enjoyed writing. It was a year we'll never forget, for better or for worst.
My disdain for Shreveport Tinder is well documented. I've never enjoyed the app, and I've been single for longer than I care to admit. Naturally, COVID-19 didn't help my dating prospects either, but that's the kind of luck I roll with.
Earlier in 2020, I decided to list the reasons I wasn't getting matches on Tinder. Luckily, the matches have started flowing in these days, I guess I finally learned how to set-up a profile correctly.
I had a blast writing this list, though, and I hope you enjoy it!
Single life for a Shreveport is a weird one, to say the very least. I am relatively new to this whole "single thing", but it didn't take me long to realize that the dating scene in Shreveport is a strange one. Here, everyone knows everyone and if you wanna meet someone new, you can try your luck going out on the weekends or partaking in dating apps like Bumble and Tinder.
Lately, my Tinder account has been a complete waste of time, so today I've decided to try and figure out why that is.
Below are my top five reasons I'm not getting any swipes on Tinder.
Too Handsome and Charming
It's true, not many girls are used to seeing a hat like mine wielded with so much confidence and regularity. What I created as a branded look twelve years ago is finally coming back to bite me in the you-know-what.
The Whole Fame Thing
Look, I'll put it bluntly... I'm kind of a big deal. I have quite a few free car wash coupons laying around and I'm pretty much a shoo-in to receive complimentary nose-bleed seats to pretty much 50% of the concerts that come to town. This type of intense fame comes with a price.
My Bowling Scores are Too High
Think about it... Bowling is an intimidating, manly sport. It's a sport to exclusive that only a select few normal adults dedicate one day a week to perfecting the craft. Not many girls are ready for such a manly man.
The bottom line is that my Tinder life was going great until those goons at DigitalMunchies absolutely dropped a nuke on my account this past February. If you haven't seen the full Tinder-destruction video, you can check it out below!
