It's like someone showing you your birthday present before you've got to unwrap it, which let's face it, is the best part!I'm going to stop right there because I'm not condemning those who do send nudes and want to.With the bitter-sweet contagion of the world wide web, the whole dating concept has become somewhat warped where all pre-conceived notions and ideologies have been well and truly digitally fucked.The modern-day language of social media has left many of us singles puzzled as to whether there is any underlying subtext behind a message, and if there is a truer meaning clinging on to every I've learnt that to know what you want, you have to know yourself.A couple of years ago, I was in a long-term relationship which was so intense with emotion that it was unhealthy.I lost myself within the toxicity and my very identity gave way to its consumption.Not because he possibly didn't like me, but because I didn't know what it was and I thought that I wouldn't have minded seeing him again but felt too uncertain and insecure to ask.
After a conversation with an industry friend, with whom I confided details of said adventure date, I was taken aback when told that Mr-sponsored-asswipe had a girlfriend.
With the coast being clear, I engaged in conversation with Mr-sponsored-rider.
I consulted my inner circle of beings for their opinions - as you do - and the general consensus was that this guy was a good egg. Aside from his crass sexual innuendos, to which I wasn't impressed, we discovered we had a number of things in common which lead to a discussion of meeting for a date.
Lesson: Find out if a date is an actual date before the kinda-maybe-possible date takes place.
At least you know that if it's a date, there's an element of interest and potential there, whereas a tea date with a friend is just that.
