Blind date sites such as Tinder, Grindr and G+ are all over the place, and there’s no clear consensus among the people I’ve spoken to about them.
For example, while the app is popular in certain circles (particularly among men), I’ve only met a handful of people who’ve ever taken a G+ date, so while it might be a great option for some, it’s not for me.
In fact, I’ve never really gotten the hang of dating on a dating app, let alone one with a social filter.
But as someone who likes to get dates and meet people through social media, it was refreshing to finally be able to explore my options and find one that felt safe and comfortable for me in a way that was consistent with my interests and personality.
The beauty of these sites is that you can be totally blind to them.
I’m not blind to dating apps, and I’m totally blind not to Tinder.
That said, Tinder and G+) seem to be the dominant dating apps out there, and they’re the most popular in my circles, so the only people I have met with G+ and Tinder that I’ve actually dated have been people who had similar interests and personalities.
I’ll admit I’ve been on the receiving end of some really ugly comments online, and even when I’ve found a couple of guys who were a bit better than me, it wasn’t enough to justify the time invested.
Still, even as a blind date seeker, it felt worth the effort.
My blind date profile on Tinder included a couple options that weren’t necessarily perfect (like being blind to my interests) but that were at least acceptable, like the option to be blind to the person’s nationality.
This was the best of the options I found on Tinder.
The most common reason why someone might not take a blind dating app is that they don’t know it exists.
For me, this meant that my profile was really vague about who I was, and how I wanted to meet, which was a problem when I first started dating.
I could never be 100 percent sure that my interests would be represented on my profile, so it was really important to me to be able see my profile as a general guideline, not just a description.
On top of that, some blind dates can be more or less “blind” in their behavior, because people are more comfortable taking a date if they can see that the person they’re dating will be “normal” or not.
When I started dating, I found that people who were “normal,” but had similar hobbies, interests, and interests tended to be a bit less likely to take me on a date, since they could be a little less open to new people.
For some people, this is a good thing.
But for others, it can be frustrating.
For instance, I recently met a guy who had a lot of different interests, but was pretty shy and reserved, so he took me on dates a lot less often than I expected.
It wasn’t because I was being “bored” on the date, it just felt wrong to me.
So, on one of the first dates we went on, he brought up that I had to be an “unconventional” type of person, because he didn’t want me to think that I was interested in girls or dating.
He was very upfront about this.
I felt a little uncomfortable about it at first, but I was willing to try it anyway.
So on the next date, we went for a coffee, and he brought it up again.
He told me he wanted to “get a date” with me, but we weren’t supposed to tell him we were dating yet.
I told him that I’d be more comfortable saying it was a date and he would get to meet me.
I thought it was strange that I hadn’t told him yet, but it didn’t take long for him to realize I was serious about it.
I think the next day he was excited about it and brought up how it would be different if I told the guy.
I asked if he could bring me to a movie theater, and that was the first time I told anyone that I wanted a date.
I was totally fine with that.
On that date, he didn (and still hasn’t) brought up any of my other interests, which is always a good sign, and is often the reason I’m attracted to him.
He’s also one of my best friends, so we have a lot in common, and it’s nice to have the same interests.
I still don’t have a great sense of how I should act around him, but so far it seems like he’s been super understanding and kind.
If I were to meet a guy with a different interest, it would definitely be a difficult decision, because my interests seem to mesh well with the guy’s.
He knows he can’t be totally sure that
