I thought things couldn’t get much worst….but yet, as soon as you say that out loud they totally get worse.
I was doing my casual swiping of left, right, left on Bumble BFF looking for a new girl squad. If you don’t know what Bumble is, it’s a dating app where the girls have to message the guys first in 24 hours or you lose your love match forever (ever….ever)! They added a new feature called Bumble BFF where you can look for girl friends, not to get it confused with girlfriends, in your area to do normal girl stuff: gossip, drink wine, Netflix binge on Grey’s Anatomy, etc. Well, I matched with this blonde hair-blue-eyed-freckled girl on BFF…or so I thought. We exchanged a few messages and I told her if she wasn’t doing anything by the weekend to call me so we can hang! Completely innocent. Our schedules were conflicting so it pushed our meet up a week out but this morning we finally went and grabbed some coffee. And food because of course I’m the only one that ate because I can never say no to food.
It wasn’t awkward at all and she was normal! It was more normal than half the guy dates i’ve been on which was a relief. We finished our coffee…and food..and went home. I was thinking to myself on the way home that I met a potential friend and was so excited. It’s lonely out here in lala land and you need your girls to keep you sane. Ya feel?
I get a text 30 min later saying she wanted to clarify things and didn’t know if I wanted to be just friends. I was so confused by this and had to bring in reinforcements. I got the roomie to evaluate the text and we sat there puzzled because I thought for sure we had met on Bumble BFF…….WRONG.
I definitely accidentally clicked on “seeking women” and swiped right on her. She told me she only liked girls and thought initially I had too when we matched. I felt so bad and wondered how many other people I had done that too. I’m strictly dickly and have no intentions of going the other way. It was an honest mistake and I felt so bad that I probably led her on for a week! We talked it out and realized how much of an idiot I was and that I needed to be careful but she said we can still be friends. I totally hope she meant it!
This would happen to me.
