Unfortunately, I didn't manage to capture the entirety of this conversation, but I'll do my best to provide a summary. I'd really love to hear your thoughts. Did I do something wrong here?
The conversation then continued with him saying that perhaps I was not, in fact rude, and indeed had a "legitimate excuse" for failing to continue the conversation. I responded with someone along the lines of not being entitled to his time, nor him to mine, and that sometimes conversations simply got lost in the melee. Then this happened:
This is actually the first (and I promise only) time I've brought up the blog in this capacity. Honestly, I'm embarrassed that I did it, but I was really, really fucking angry at this point.
On some level, I can understand where he's coming from. I'm sure it's frustrating not to hear back from a match and to feel ignored. But the first few messages I received from him were extremely off-putting, and I guess instead of unmatching, I just let our "conversation" fall to the wayside. It's happened to me, it's happened to him, I'm sure it's happened to just about every Tinder user ever.
But then things really devolved. "I like my Asians freaky." I've become a commodity. Just like some people like their pizza extra cheesy, I am an object to be customized to someone else's liking.
You guys, this shit sucks. It's why I don't "bait" men — I'd have to be crazy to ask to feel this way every. fucking. day.
