The Search Continues…

Or maybe it begins again…

While I have been on Tinder for a while, or, more accurately, back on Tinder, I’ve given up on it and gone completely over to Bumble.

My Tinder cue is filling up very quickly, and I’ve made quite a few more than just friendly acquaintances on Twitter, though all the people of interest have been from out of town. In both situations.

Who’s up for a road trip? Continue reading
