Yes, It Really Was Love At First Swipe

Yes, the word is out, I met my boyfriend on Bumble. Y'all, I've been lying to my family for a solid minute so it feels good to come clean.

For those who don't know what Bumble is, I congratulate you. I'm assuming you're either one—already in a very solid relationship with your human or two—you stuck with the traditional ways of meeting another person in the world. Either way, I'm proud of you but who actually meets a person real life nowadays.

Bumble is a dating app, very much like Tinder except it's a level up where people don't immediately assume you're on there to have hookups. On Tinder, you swipe left on someone that you're uninterested in and you swipe right if you are, Bumble is the same. If they also have swiped right for you, you guys "match." When you match, the woman has 24 hours to text her match before her match's profile disappears.

I almost lost my match but he extended his time and thank the universe he did.

Yes, that is also a feature on the app. One can extend their time, giving me more time to advance. In my defense, I wasn't really on the app so I probably didn't even mean to ignore him at all. If he hadn't extended his time I would have missed out on meeting one of the nicest and coolest people I now know.

I was a little uncomfortable at first telling people we met on the internet. This is because meeting someone on there is still looked down upon. Online dating used to be seen as the last attempt to find your soulmate. It was seen as a move of desperation so you'd hide these types of acts from the world. The whole idea of love also comes with the idea of how and where you meet them. The first thing my friends always ask me is "how did you meet him?"

We associate the idea of "finding love" with places we meet our supposed soulmates or how we meet them. Was it in a grocery store when you guys were grabbing the same block of cheese? (OK now that's an ideal situation) Or was it when you made awkward eye contact at a house party? Anything thing is better than meeting online, am I right?

This is because the media portrays it this way. The perfect "how we met story" is always something unexpected and somewhat magical. I'm sure plenty people in the world have had these moments but living your life expecting things to happen exactly like in the movies is setting yourself up for failure.

When I tell others I met my boyfriend on Bumble, all of a sudden my relationship seemed invalid as if it's not going to work out. I met my boyfriend unexpectedly on Bumble and it's been effin' magical.

He has been one of the most supportive people in my life. This man brought me tacos and coffee during finals week to make sure I was well fed and awake. He encourages me to work harder, study harder and he doesn't question my academic choices when I tell him I'm an anthropology student. He also washes my dishes, if you know me, you know I hate washing dishes. Just because I met him on a dating app shouldn't make him any less of a person I would consider spending my life with.

I'm not saying that all relationships online will work out, I'm saying ALL relationships in general, whether if you met online or in real life sometimes don't work out. The fact that I met my partner online shouldn't make it any less likely that it would work out. We did meet in real life and we clicked, it's as basic as that.

There are probably more fuckboys and man-babies online because that is the culture today but there's also plenty in real life as well. In both scenarios, you have to weed out the worst to find one solid person. In my case, I found myself a freaking gem.

12 Things To Know Before Dating A Girl Who Loves Country Singers More Than She Loves You

They’re just as important as you, babe.


If you're about to fall for a girl who falls for country singers, prepare yourself by knowing the following:

1. The playlist 

My playlist will go from Luke Combs to Blake Shelton and you'll have to deal with it. Your playlists are not an option. I will go on and on about how beautiful their voice is, but don't get jealous.

2. Releases

I will set alarms for new releases like Luke Combs "The Prequel" and you HAVE to be as excited as I am. I will be more excited about these releases than I am about anything else in life, but suck it up buttercup.

3. Concerts

I will give up time with you to go see my favorite singers and you’ll just have to understand. You can either join or not, but the plans aren’t changing.

4. Lyrics

You will hear me quote their lyrics more than I’ll say I love you, but just know I still love you.

5. Car rides

Every car ride will include country music, while it will most likely be Luke Combs or Adam Doleac blaring on the radio, you better enjoy every bit of it.

6. I will talk about how beautiful they are.

You’ll hear about their looks often, wether it be Luke Combs eyes or Luke Bryan’s voice, the looks will be brought up. Don’t get jealous, you’re just as handsome.

7. Their voices

Their voices are BEAUTIFUL. While I personally favor Luke Combs, just know I love yours too.

8. Phone backgrounds 

My phone background is most likely some country singer and not a picture of us, but you’re important, I promise.

9. Home Decor 

I will have pictures of Faren Rachels and I up before I have some of us, but realize I have plenty of pictures of us and one with her.

10. Awards

Whenever any awards are on, they’re number one priority compared to your Braves games. You can always watch recaps.

11. Singing 

I will randomly start singing any song by them and probably interrupt any story you're telling, sorry they're on my mind.

12. Dates

I will make sure any release dates for new songs, albums, or concerts are on my calendar; however, I will probably forget our anniversaries.

11 Things The Man You Love Should Do For You, No Questions Asked

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that mean a lot.


Every girl feels special when the guy she's dating does simple things for her that not everyone thinks about. Here's a list of 10 things that every girl genuinely appreciates.

1. Open/Hold the door

I feel like this one is really simple because everyone has to walk through doors. Chivalry isn't dead, let him open the door for you. He's not trying to prove that you can't do it for yourself, but he's trying to be polite and show you that he cares for you.

2. Give you really big hugs

Everyone has bad days, and sometimes you just need a really big hug. Whether it be a bear hug or the hug where he picks you up and spins you around, it will make you feel better in the long run.

3. Buy you really small gifts

One of the best things my boyfriend has ever done for me is simply bringing me a Dr. Pepper when he knows I'm tired from a long hard day full of exams or work. Sonic slushes will also make my day in a heartbeat.

4. Text/Call you just to tell you he loves you

This is pretty simple. It takes less than 10 seconds to text, and only a few minutes to call. Sometimes you get these texts right at the perfect moment, and it makes you feel so much better.

5. Come see you when you're sick

Everyone hates being sick. But seeing your friends and family while you're sick can make you feel so much better. Having your boyfriend come to see you and possibly even take care of you just makes being sick that much easier.

6. Respect your decisions

You're not married yet, so your decisions are up to you! He should respect the decisions you make and support you, even if it's not what he thinks is the best decision. After all, you know yourself better than anyone else!

7. Give you a shoulder to cry on

We all have bad days, and sometimes you just can't stop the tears from coming. Even if he's not good with crying, he should give you hugs and love to help you get through it.

8. Compliment you

Even if you look horrible and know so, hopefully, he'll still tell you that you look good. Even if the clothes you're wearing aren't his style, he should still tell you that they look good on you and that you are beautiful each and every day.

9. Call you when you're away or he's away

If you're like me, I miss my boyfriend after being away for about three hours, so when we're apart for more than a couple days, I love getting random calls from him when he knows I'm not busy. It's definitely better than a text.

10. Deal with all your annoying quirks

So if you're anything like me, you enjoy screaming music as loudly and horribly as you can in the car and making a complete fool of yourself, but he should love you for that anyway. I also love to take really stupid pictures, and he should put up with that too. He shouldn't be annoyed by your quirks, he should love them and laugh along with you.

11. Love you no matter what

I honestly feel like this goes without saying, but I put it on here so that the girls who don't feel like they're being loved no matter what can realize. He should want to work out problems with you instead of calling it quits and holding a grudge. He should want you to be happy and support you in every decision you make in life. When he loves you unconditionally, he will do all of the above things and more.
