It’s 2018 and by now, “we met on Tinder” shouldn’t be an embarrassing thing to say. Besides the confused looks you may get from your grandparents, meeting online is pretty common and should be met with curiosity and excitement. Why? Because taking a leap and actually meeting someone from online and hitting it off with them makes a great story. Even then, dating apps do come with their fair share of anxiety and uncertainty, especially with the amount of dating app fails and horror stories that we hear. Nevertheless, there is a reason why dating apps remain popular, and no, it’s not only for free dinner and drinks or casual hookups.
Swiping right has proved to work for many people and its always refreshing to hear a heartwarming story or two that will restore your faith in love. Once you filter out the cringeworthy opening lines, many users meet their partners, spouses and even lifelong friends on apps like Tinder and Bumble. If you’ve been on the fence about downloading that app, then check out some of these success stories that are sure to make you smile and start swiping.
5.) We Do Business Online, We Shop Online, Why Not Date Online?
“I’m Tina Lensing, Mindset & Business Coach and I just married my husband who I met online six years ago. Six years ago, my now-husband and I met on the dating site, Plenty of Fish. I had been online dating on and off for about a year and I was his first ever online date. We only interacted briefly online and then were able to meet up for a drink to see one another in person. We actually learned that we had mutual friends and were both in the same volleyball circle. The online platform helped us to seek out a partner who was aligned with one another’s values and hobbies. We just got married this month, April 7th and committed to one another on a whole new level. I run an online business. We do business online, we shop online, we connect online, so why not begin the dating process online, too?”
