My thoughts on grindr and the gay community.
It’s sad that so many of us want a long lasting — yet meaningful relationship but aren’t willing to look past one photo and some text.
THINK ABOUT IT: We limit the endless amounts of possibilities, based on one photo and 150 characters? WHY?!
My thoughts, is because everyone wants instant gratification. If we can’t find something now to appease us and void our emptiness we keep searching for that model type of person to te morosely relieve of us of our impending “doom.”
It’s so sad most of us feel alone and misunderstood — but we do it to ourselves.
WAKE UP GOD DAMNIT! Smell the coffee look deep inside and get serious!
How can you tell if someone is right for you based on a picture? We feel alone because the actual context of a conversation is being lost because of a five minute fuck session which ironically makes you feel more alone than before.
The exorbitantly sad part, is that the “hot” people run over everyone because they know they have CONTROL OVER YOU, and you are just a stepping stone for them. Don’t let anyone walk over you. You’re a human right? You have feelings? So why chase them? Why give them the power?
Look at the warning signs if no one responds to you, have your head held high and say, “I deserve to have the time of day given to me and If not their loss.”
Also, if someone doesn’t meet you or continually makes excuses, please do yourself a favor and reassure yourself that your time is valuable.
If you end up dying the next day, dwelling on why someone didn’t meet you based on whatever bullshit excuse they have, you didn’t live your live to the fullest — is that how you want to go?
Don’t give that power to anyone! People that want to be in your life will make time regardless the circumstances and flaws.
Remember this quote:
"We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly"
Think to yourself — If you are good enough for that special someone, but even more importantly ARE THEY GOOD FOR YOU? Don’t be scared to say NO!
Also I come across the “excuse”, which is the most deplorable comment to say because someone mistreats you on grindr. I’m sure you’ve heard it “it’s just GRINDR”, so because it’s an app that’s your proposition for treating people poorly and disrespecting them?
Surely, you’ll never meet that person but karma is always watching those who need it most.
We’re so scared of never being loved that we don’t even give anyone the chance to meet face and face and potentially enjoy each other’s company.
However, when are we going to be able to see past looks and the desire of sex and start getting to know someone.
On my dating profile on JACKD if you would like to read it the end comment reads:
"Try making a difference, seeing people deep down inside. Not surface level, there’s a pot of gold in everyone… Try to pay it forward and make someone better and believe in themselves!"
Also, people are so insecure who use fake pictures. This also applies to everyone, in which you know who you are on tumblr and any dating website or Internet application.
Where the hell do you think it’s okay pretending to be someone else? For one that is lying two that is false advertisement.
Grow up, people should like you for WHO YOU ARE. However you most likely have mental issues if you can’t even be content with yourself how do you EXPECT anyone else to respect you if you can’t even.
Oh for the people who cheat or are in open relationships. You are the one that deserves to be alone as you do not respect the word LOVE.
REBLOG if you think this needs to be shared. Remember to love yourself and put your own worth first because you are fucking worth it.
