Lads, some tips for your Tinder profile

OK so I downloaded Tinder again. (I’ll never learn) After flicking through the different profiles some thoughts came to my head. So lads, if you want to get anywhere on Tinder I suggest you follow these tips (ladies, pay attention too).

Your photos

Let’s face it, Tinder is about appearances. So make sure your photos are up to scratch.

  • Have at least one non-group photo.. This isn’t Where’s Wally.
  • Have something other than selfies up. We want to know you’re not vain, have friends and a life.
  • Tinder is not Facebook. No need to upload all your holiday snaps.
  • No naked/topless photos. Again, you just look vain and sleazy.
  • Don’t upload photos that look suspiciously like a couple. Potential girlfriends don’t want to see that.
  • Use recent photos and for the love of God look the same in all your photos.
  • Don’t use glamour shots- this screams Catfish.
  • Avoid smokes hanging from the mouth, photos of weed and general ‘up yours’ gestures.
  • No children in photos please. If you have children fine, mention it in your bio, but no need to put their photos on an online dating site!
  • Again, don’t put photos of kids up with the caption “not my child”. It’s not funny it’s just weird.
  • Smile- you automatically look more attractive.

Your profile

  • So the more information you put up on your bio, the easier it is for people to know whether you have stuff in common. More importantly it gives people something to message you about!
  • Put something funny in your profile, maybe something a little cheeky.
  • TV shows are always a good one too. A guy messaged me a quote from one of my favourite episodes of It’s Always Sunny and I fell hard for him.
  • Oh, and have your real name up. Seriously.

Conversations

  • Do not, I repeat do not message “hey” “what’s up” or use “sexy” “hun” or any “xx”. Put a little effort in. It’ll pay off.
  • This comes back to the bio. Pick something out from their profile and start a conversation. Let it go from there. If they don’t have anything up, again, how interesting could they be? Do you really wanna waste time there?
  • If you really don’t know what to write, why not send a cheesey joke? If you can make a girl laugh and all that.
  • Send something random, show off your weird personality. Weird is sexy.

Good intentions

OK so a lot of people (from both sexes) are just looking to hook up. That’s cool. You do you, boo. But don’t waste my time when I’ve made it clear I’m not interested in just sex. Tell me your intentions from the start and we can part on good terms, quickly.

So there you go guys and gals. Now go forth and upgrade those lame ass profiles. Find the love of your life, marry and have cute little babies. Sorry getting ahead of myself!

The princess and the frogs

This is part of a writing challenge (I’ll post the details  below) Using a quote about romance write some flash fiction.

You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

Once upon a time there was a princess who fell in love with a local soldier. Their romance was not blessed by her parents who believed she should marry royalty. She planned to elope but on the eve of her 18th birthday, her father declared the army would send 1000 men to fight in Europe. She ran to her fiancé’s home to find he had already deployed. Three days later the letter arrived. Her love had died in battle. She cried for 30 days and 30 nights. Then her mother came to her and told her she needed to be present in the court, to greet suitors. She would look and she would find her prince.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The boys and girls had spent every summer afternoon down by the lake. Sofia and Emilia were dipping their feet in the water, watching the boys playing football. Phillip caught Emilia’s eye and smiled. She blushed and looked away. The ball splashed into the water in front of them. “Arghhh!” Sofia shrieked. Nathaniel ran over to collect the ball. The boys disbanded and Phillip followed him. “Sorry ladies” Nathaniel said with a cheeky grin. “Nath! You did that on purpose!” “No! If I did it on purpose I would have done this!” And with that a wave splashed on the girls. Sofia jumped up and chased him down to the woods. Philip awkwardly stood there for a moment. He had gotten taller since school began last September and towered over Emilia. She motioned for him to sit and he did. He pushed a wet strand of hair behind her ear. They had been friends since they were babies. But something changed between them over the last year. Since he gave her the bracelet for her 15th birthday. “Are you going to the Coronation?” he asked.”Yeah we don’t get much opportunity to get dressed up. Are you?” “Yeah the guys all said we’d check it out. You don’t see the queen often.”They looked at each other for what seemed like too long, their gaze breaking when Sofia returned. “Em, I’m soaked! Lets go.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Philip arrived late to the Coronation with the others trailing behind. The ceremony had already began. They stood at the back, quiet and bored. When it was over the Queen hurried off. The hall was busy, there was food and music for everyone. Through the crowd he spotted her. Emilia stood chatting, in a lilac dress, her hair tied up. Phillip never saw her look so beautiful. She spotted him, smiled and moved towards him. Just as she got there Sofia came bouncing over. “Nath robbed some wine!” She giggled. They made their way out the back and hid near the woods. All the teenagers took turns sipping from the bottle.

“Why do you think the Queen never smiles?” “Rumour has it her soul mate died. Wouldn’t you be sad?” “Ha, you don’t really believe in all that do you?” The girls all went quiet. “Well… They do say there is a match for all of us out there. When you finally kiss, there is a spark that tells you!” Martha finally piped up. Nathaniel laughed. “I believe it.” Phillip said confidently. “My parents are soulmates. Someday I’ll find and marry mine.” He subtly tried to look at Emilia but everyone saw it. “I heard she’s a witch, the Queen.” The chatting continued until everyone started to disperse. Sofia went walking with Nathaniel, once again leaving Emilia with Phillip. “Do you want me to walk you home?” Emilia smiled at Phillip and as they started down the trail he took her hand. “You’re wearing the bracelet. I thought maybe you didn’t like it.” “No I love it!.. I mean.. I only wear it on special occasions. I’d be afraid of breaking it.” She was pretty sure she saw him smile. He stopped and faced her. He hesitated and then leaned in. Their lips barely touched but she felt a warmth fly through her body, all the way to her toes. Before she could lean into the kiss she heard Sofia shout and they pulled away. “Emilia, quick! The Queen has made an announcement!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mother once told me you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince. Mother was always right. From here on, girls will be required to meet multiple suitors before being allowed to search for and marry her soulmate. On the eve of their 17th birthday it will be decided how many ‘frogs’ she must date. Anyone who refuses to cooperate will be arrested and refused marriage to their soulmate forever. Full details will be sent to each family with daughters.

I have been nominated!!!!

Hi everyone!

So my new blogger friend over at Real Talk On The Cypher’s Den (http://cyphersdenblog.com/2016/02/25/liebster-award/) has nominated me for the Liebster award! I’m still pretty new to this so I will explain it as best I can.

The Liebster Award

The award is an online recognition from one blogger to another. If you are nominated, as a new blogger, this would be a great way to not only network with other bloggers but build up your blog roll and help others become more familiar with your blog. The award is passed around and the idea is to answer random questions given to you by the person who nominated you. Once completed,  you have to nominate more people to pass on the award!

I’ll be honest I was a bit nervous when I got it but after looking through it, it’s actually really fun! I was given some questions to answer. So without further adieu…

1.What prompted you to start blogging?

Ok, this is a good one. So I decided to start my blog Writings Of A Single Girl because over the years I find people (both men & women) treat you differently when you’re single, say things to you etc. I wanted to share my thoughts on the whole thing and also my experiences (which some of them are so weird you couldn’t make it up) I actually started the idea two years ago but started dating someone and stopped because I thought “well, I can’t write about being single now” and guess what, that ended as quick as it started. I kick myself for wasting those two years.

2.What was the last movie you watched, that made you cry?

Ok I basically only watch horror. If I’m going to watch something that makes you cry I need to mentally prepare myself haha. I re watched The Notebook last year, that always gets me going! Oh, actually I watched the kids film Home with my niece on the weekend and cried at the end!! Ha. (This is why I stick to horrors)

3.Do you prefer going out or staying inside after a long work week?

Ooh, this one really depends on how tired I am ha. But I think I feel if I haven’t gone out and done something the weekend, whether it’s a night out or a trip to the museum or a park, it’s a wasted weekend.

4.What is your favorite post that you have written thus far?

Hmmm Ok I’m going to pick 2. This first one is about when I got stood up. Ok I get that my blog is anonymous so I can pretty much write whatever I want but I felt great talking about this because yes, it is an embarrassing story but I’ve gotten over it.

https://writingsofasinglegirl.wordpress.com/2016/01/14/the-day-i-was-stood-up

I also took part recently in a Friday Fiction with Ronovan and got such great feedback. I feel really proud so I want to share that one too.

https://writingsofasinglegirl.wordpress.com/2016/02/23/friday-fiction-challenge-with-ronovan

5.Do you think fish cry?

Yes, how else do you think we have oceans?

6. If you could get away with performing one illegal act, what would it be and why?

I’m such a nerd when it comes to following rules and stuff. Oh God, I actually can’t think of anything…

7.What is your favorite drink?

Alcoholic- Probably Corona or most cocktails if I’m feelin’ fanncccyyy.  Non-alcoholic- Mc Donald’s Mocha Frappes.

8.What do you love most about where you live?

Eh, so I live in a town about ten minutes from where I grew up. I live there, I do not work or socialise there so I will give you a reason why I still love the town where I grew up (apart from because I grew up there and am familiar with it). My town has great programmes for kids more specifically teens. There is a lot for them to do and even though there is anti social behaviour & crime (like a lot of areas) the area has a great community spirit.

9.Summer or Winter?

Summer. The sun. Sun tan. Days at the park or beach. (Although I love the build up to Christmas)

10.Top 3 people you would invite to dinner, whether dead or alive?

Britney Spears because she was (is) my childhood idol. Emma Watson because she is my favourite feminist. And for the year that’s in it Countess Markievicz from the 1916 Easter Rising (if you’re not in Ireland feel free to google it) because how amazing would that dinner conversation be.

11.Name your dream destination

Although I want to visit America (all of it..someday) the first place that popped into my head was Australia. A lot of Irish have emigrated to Canada and Australia and even though I could never do that and leave my family, I really want to go on a holiday there but because of the distance you would need to go for at least a month to make it worth the journey.

Ok guys, so I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much as I enjoyed answering them. I hope I’ve done this right, the nominees I have chosen are:

  1. http://www.sassandshamrocks.com/
  2. http://dublinhousewife.com/
  3. http://nananettie1969.com/
  4. https://formulaforfabulous.wordpress.com/
  5. https://highheelsandcupcakesblog.wordpress.com/

 

All you need to do is mention who nominated you in your post, answer the questions below and nominate another 5-11 bloggers you follow!

  1. Would you rather; have fingers for legs or legs for fingers (please give a reason)
  2. Do you have any tatoos? talk about one (or if you are planning to get one)
  3. What is your favourite post you have written? Please link it.
  4. What is the last book you read?
  5. When was the last time you cried?
  6. Would you be willing to eat a bowl of crickets for $40,000?
  7. If you could transport to anywhere in the world for ONE DAY, where would you choose?
  8. What three items would you bring to a desert island (one can be a person/pet if you wish)
  9. What’s your favourite holiday (Paddy’s day, Christmas, Halloween etc) and why?
  10. If you could have any superpower for a whole year what would you choose?

Enjoy!

FBI: Female bullsh*t investigators

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

So this morning while browsing through my Facebook page I came across one of the girls I had went to school with. You now the people you barely talk to but are friends on FB anyway? She’d be in that category. So it came up she had changed her profile picture. To a picture of her and who I can only assume is her boyfriend as they are holding hands with their fingers intertwined. No big deal.

Except the guy in the photo is G (I’m too lazy to even give him a fake name). I know G years, since I was like 10. I was ‘meeting’ him a good few years ago (back when it was socially acceptable to use that juvenile term). Long story short, things didn’t go anywhere but over the years we have still been texting, flirting and even kissing if we happened to be in the same pub on a night out.

Now if they’re together now that’s grand. In fact I knew he was with someone the last few months or so. The reason I know this? Because a couple of months ago while we were texting he informed me he was with someone. And that he didn’t think it was going anywhere. And that he wanted to hook up with me. I obviously told him I wouldn’t be doing anything with him while he was with someone and even told him he was making himself out to be a dickhead. We even hung out once in his house, he made me tea and we chatted. It was strange being in my old neighbourhood (that’s how we know each other). When leaving we hugged goodbye, but as soon as I was gone he was texting to say he wanted to kiss me etc. I told him I wasn’t interested as long as he had a girlfriend. He eventually stopped texting me when he got the point that nothing was gonna happen.

Last message I did receive (after a few months of nothing) was about three weeks ago. In fact I had got a new phone so lost his number. I had woke up to a message on Saturday morning with a message just saying ‘well’. It was on Viber so his name came up on it. I wrote back, curious, saying ‘ha good night?’ obviously taking it that he had been out the night before. He wrote back with a sick face emoji and I left it at that. I just assumed he was still unavailable. I didn’t think I knew his girlfriend. But there you go. Right in front of my face. Him & his girlfriend.

When will guys get it? Girls find out EVERYTHING. Sooner or later, your stupidity catches up with you.

Want another example?

A good few years ago I worked for Ann Summers. Had a large Facebook group with thousands of friends etc. I was kind of seeing this guy. We had gone on a date or two and had met up a few times in one of the local pubs. He was very hot & cold and eventually I got fed up and lost interest. He would still text me once in a while though. And there it was. On my Ann Summers page. A girl put up pictures of the two of them out together. The comments saying they were lovely together etc confirmed it was a relationship. Next time he text me I told him I was friends with his girlfriend on Facebook. He didn’t text me again after that.

Want an example from another girl?

The girl who used to do my nails years ago once told me she was dating a guy for a couple of months. Saw him on evenings after work and weekends etc. So why would you suspect something was up? At the time Facebook wasn’t as huge as it is now so when someone said they didn’t have FB you wouldn’t question it as much as now. She told me one day that she did come across his page though when it came up as a suggestion. Naturally she had a browse. Dick (let’s call him that shall we?) not only had a girlfriend, but lived with her. Turns out she worked nights and odd shifts. Which meant Dick could see Tammy (my nail girl) like normal and nothing seemed odd about it!

Think it’s all social media?

This one belongs in a post of its own but here is the condensed version. I dated a guy in work many moons ago. Things ended, he started seeing someone else. A year later, he said they broke up. We started seeing each other again and BAM! my friend saw them in a shopping centre together. With my mind confused, another male co worker who went out with a different friend told me that my ex informed him he was buying a bigger car because of the other girl’s son (from a previous relationship). That ended there and then.

Lads, one last time. WE WILL FIND OUT. Stop being idiots and even more importantly stop being dickheads.

Have you any similar stories? Would love to hear them!

Can I go now guys?

Good morning!

While browsing (dossing) in work I came across this article on Buzzfeed. It’s about those weird couple photos you see on social media. As you already know I love Buzzfeed and have wasted hours of my life on it. And now you can too haha.

I thought this was article was funny because I hate seeing those stupid photos on Facebook. I love when people make a parody of them! Like these ones:

Chat Roulette, Starbucks & Laughs

Happy Tuesday!

POF antics..

Yesterday was a busier Monday than I expected it to be. I woke to messages from Sinead with pictures of guys she had found on POF that we had met in a pub the other week. Now ladies, maybe I’m just terrible at searching on Plenty Of Fish but I do not see how you can find not one, not two but THREE random fellas from a pub without their username or unless you were in their location (she wasn’t). Creeping skill level.. master. Haha!

Anyway she found this guy who I can only describe as b-e-a-utiful. His name was Liam from Australia, but living over here. I had been chatting to him on the night out, well I mean we both were, but I thought we were getting on well. I had thought about him once or twice since, wondering if we visited the pub again would we see him ha. Then she told me she has been messaging him. And that they have been flirting. I’ll admit, I felt jealous. Why didn’t I magically find the hot bar guy on POF. Why didn’t he find me? I wonder did he like me and it just happens that she found him first? All this went through my mind. (At least I’m being honest) But she is delighted so all I can do is be happy for her. And hey, there’s plenty more you know what in the sea 😉

Being fatties..

So after work  I picked Sinead up and we went to get food in Liffey Valley while we waited for Denise to get off work. We ended up getting Burger King and Starbucks! I was stuffed till this morning. When Denise finished work and we headed back to Sinead’s. That’s where the fun started.

Chat Roulette..

So, have you all played CR? I played it for the first time, drunk one night in Sinead’s house. Last night we played it for the first time sober. Basically it’s like Skype but it connects you to someone else in the world. You can either talk to them or press play for the next person. So yes, you do get a lot of dicks. Last night we got some hotties, a guy in a dress, guys doing things to their bums (my eyes can’t unsee the horrors) and one guy who wanted to be dominated online (Sinead got well into that last one haha).

So what turned into a couple of hours after work turned into getting home at midnight! I fell into bed, was exhausted this morning. Early night tonight, a girl needs her beauty sleep!

Few cans for Leo <3

Is it still Monday??

This might brighten up your day. A Facebook event has been created in honour of Leonardo DiCaprio and his Oscar *fingers crossed*.

Leo has lost out to the Academy Award four times. There have been many Memes and Gifs around the fact that he has not already won it!

But after already winning the AACTA, BAFTA, Critic’s Choice and Golden Globe awards this year for his role in The Revenant, his fans (including me, big time) think 2016 is his year for an Oscar.

So the event was set up that if (when) he wins the Oscar on the 29th February, his fans will meet at the Spire at midnight to have a few cans to celebrate!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1653206091609972/

It is in conjunction with other events being held in Madrid & Barcelona.

I’ll be honest lads, if I wasn’t in work the next day I would definitely be there! I suppose I will just have to celebrate on my own in my Pj’s (maybe with a shneaky can!). One thing is for sure, I will be celebrating, because Bae is going to win! (Think positive thoughts everyone)

Who’s Ryan?

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone’s week is starting off well even with the horrible weather. So you will know from my last post that I had my parents up yesterday. I had placed my phone on the coffee table while I went to make tea for everyone. I heard it beep but thought nothing of it.

When I arrived back I checked and it was a Snapchat from this lad I’ve been talking to. “Who’s Ryan?” my dad asked smiling. (FYI he wasn’t snooping, the caption appears on the phone. I think everyone naturally looks when a phone lights up). I answered truthfully and said “A friend on Snapchat”. I didn’t add the rest- that we met on POF. Basically if I chat to a guy on POF or Tinder we usually swap Snaps. It helps to rule out them being a Catfish plus you’re not giving the personal info like your phone number. It’s a bit safer plus more fun because you can get a sense of their personality through pictures.

I think my dad may have been hoping I was going to announce it was my boyfriend as he didn’t really understand what Snapchat means. I was like “you just send pictures, like Ryan just sent me a picture of a fry up”. He’ll catch on someday. Sure he also only found out yesterday how to connect to my Wifi and how to close the apps on your phone your no longer using!
