Me and Jaclyn met on twitter and have been speaking back and forth, sharing our experiences of online dating. I asked her to guest post for me because I love her sassy attitude. It reminds me of my own. I dare say that if we were to meet in person, I would feel sorry for the men that we would encounter! Writing about online dating has been in my mind for a while. This is the start of a few posts on this topic coming your way soon. Take it away Jaclyn!

I have never tried online dating. I know you probably have heard those words come out of many different mouths before, because even though it is quite popular, some individuals still consider it “taboo”. I am a fairly extroverted person, however I can be quite private in terms of my dating life. I have always dated guys I was familiar with first, for example, guys I met through work, internships, school and other people are how I have always dated! Now I work at an office, and keep my relationships with co-workers strictly professional. I have never dated a co-worker, however I have built friendships with them, which allowed us to create a more “personal” relationship. My office is quite small, therefore people are always in each other’s business, and I try to make my life seem as mundane as possible to refrain them from cyberstalking me, or trying to go searching for some juice!
Anyways, I am going to stop my rambling and get into my “Tinder” experience. I decided to join Tinder, because it seems like everyone is on it, and it is linked to Facebook which makes me feel a wee bit safer; you can see if you have any mutual friends with the person, and many people stick their Instagram accounts in their bio, and yes I snoop at them. It makes me feel more comfortable clicking on that green heart if I am interested in them.
I like Tinder, because it is entertaining, a great time killer and most of the guys seem like they would be a lot of fun to hang out with even if dating them just does not work out. So far, I have been on one Tinder date. We met for brunch, the food was quite good, but I was not into him! I told him later on through text, and he was totally cool about it, and that was that!
This past weekend, I was supposed to meet up with someone from Tinder. He seemed very laid back, but hard working, and his photos gave me the impression he looked like he knows how to have a good time. We decided to meet up on Saturday, at around 7:00pm, and in my opinion that is anywhere from 6:45-7:15pm! I texted him at 7:00 to tell him I was there, and asked him where he was. At around 7:15 he responded asking me where I was, and I explained to him where! No response! By 7:40, I was annoyed, and left he called me at 8:00, but I did not answer, and I texted him explaining to him that I left. All I kept thinking was what a JERK! Does he really think I am going to wait around for him? Who the hell does he think he is? Now, I never actually went into the bar we were going to meet at, however I waited outside right near it.
Later on, he told me he was there for half an hour past 7:40, and blamed his lack of response on an “iPhone update”. I was definitely annoyed, but at the end of the day maybe he just needs to be taught how to tell time correctly; I might have thought he was much smarter than what he really is.
He asked me if I would like to meet up with him on Sunday afternoon, but I told him I felt like he didn’t show the first time, and he told me he did show up. I do believe him. I do think he showed up, but closer to 8:00, and that is not anywhere near7:00!!!!! My friends advised me to not give him another chance, because he was rude the first time, and even though I do think we would have had a lot of fun together, I unmatched his ass! I cannot deal with guys like that to me he is just plain rude, and inconsiderate!
I don’t have anything against Tinder, I think it is a fun way to meet people, and is another form of the internet giving us cheap entertainment!
My name is Jaclyn, and I started blogging last year, because I thought it seemed like a fun hobby to take up! I met this guy, and he told me I am “snarky”, and I thought wait a minute, “Snarky Brunette” would be a simple, but funny blog title for people to remember! As time went on, I realized I absolutely love to write relatable content for people to enjoy, but I always add in a touch of snark! I also blog as another way to entertain both myself and others! I love reading other peoples blogs, and enjoy building relationships! I travel between Los Angeles, and Arizona, but I am originally from Long Island! My parents moved us to the Phoenix area when I was in 6th grade, but I never lost my east coast sass!
