This time, I'm going to talk about my experience when I signed up for Tinder and was surprised to meet a handsome guy, but the date was a goofy one with a lot of twists and turns.
Matching apps, especially foreign apps, naturally have many foreign registrants, but are there also sakura? I wondered if there are many people who are subtle in real life, but I'm told that's not the case.
But it's good to know that there are really good looking foreigners registered!
If you know what I'm talking about, skip ahead here.
First, let's take a quick look at the dating app Tinder.
Tinder is a marriage activity application from the United States.
It is a super-simple application that allows you to search for a partner based on the distance and conditions you specify, and then simply swipe right if you like the person who appears on the screen, or left if you don't.
The conditions for who appears on the screen can be set in advance.
- How many kilometers from where you are now are you targeting?
- Gender choice (do you want to meet a man or a woman? (Both are acceptable)
- What age range will be covered?
You can get started as soon as you have a rough idea of what you want to do.

I quickly set it up and decided to start tinder.
I wanted to meet a foreigner, so I just kept swiping and swiping until a foreigner popped up on the screen!
If you shoo right to someone you like and they accept, you are matched.
And I met someone who seemed nice.
We then chatted on Tinder, exchanged lines with each other, and went to Shibuya to meet.
I really don't think it's a good idea to exchange lines so easily.
However. A lucky date begins.
On the day of the meeting, I rushed to Shibuya just in time for the rendezvous after running some errands, and received a line from the other party.
Apparently, they are now in a place a little away from Shibuya.
Huh? What do you mean?
Then another line came through: "I'm with a friend. We are going to have dinner now.
No, no, no. It's not supposed to be a date with me.
He said he was at a loss for a reply.
But if it's too awkward, you can leave me alone."
I'm sorry! I'm going to go say bye bye to my friends."
He seemed to have guessed before I could respond.
It's impossible for me to suddenly walk into a room full of foreigners. I don't have that kind of tension.
I'll be waiting for you at the "XXX"! I'm wearing a blue T-shirt and denim." I went to the designated place, and there he was, my partner.
I was speechless.
Wow... He's too handsome as you can see in the picture.
I thought that the images registered on these apps must have been filled with a lot of excitement, but a handsome man who looked exactly like his image came to me.
I was happy because I wanted to be matched with a good looking man and I wanted to be matched with a good looking man, but on the contrary, I was scared because I was beyond my imagination. I was so disproportionate, I thought.
For a moment, I was tempted to walk away, but with a start, I said, "Hi! I was so nervous that I said to him, "Hi!
Then he responded in a friendly manner, and we decided to go to the bar for a "drink" anyway.
Then we had a beer and talked about each other.
But he looked slightly sleepy.
He asked me questions about words in Japanese that he did not understand, and I tried my best to converse with him in my poor English.
And after a few drinks, I decided to go for a water cigarette.
And this is where things start to get lazy.
On a water cigarette trip with your partner.
So I went to a water cigarette store in Shibuya.
Full waitress: "I won't be available for another 50 minutes or so!"
Clerk: "The customer over there will be leaving soon, but I'm afraid he'll have to wait an hour to get through to the person who has a reservation."
The waitress seemed to be in a hurry and was too busy to talk to me.
I didn't realize how popular water cigarettes are. To be honest, I was surprised.
In the end, I couldn't find a water cigarette and had to go to a cafe for a cup of coffee.
We ended up going to a nearby cafe because all the water fags were full.
I'm not going to let you do it!He had had a good time with his friends that day at lunchtime and his face showed his fatigue.
He was slurring his words and his eyes were half-closed. I thought I was about to go white and fall down.
I'm sorry. I just happened to have too much fun today and I'm tired."
I could only say, "Don't worry about it," to the person whose fatigue was showing on his face.
The conversation continued to be slow and plodding from start to finish, and I had a terrible feeling that we were not communicating.
Frankly, I wanted to leave.
And I feel like his fatigue mode has peaked and he will fall asleep...then it will be even more troublesome.
I decided to call it a day and said, "See you in the future!" and said bye-bye.
This is the sequence of events. It was goofy.
My Tinder date ended like this, although the second half was a bit of a mess.
I liked the fact that he was good looking (though I was nervous), but I didn't expect it to be such a goofy date, and in a way, it was a bit of a letdown.
It is very possible that the other party also thought, "I got a different one than I expected," but, well, we had a pleasant conversation for a while...yes....
I dated several people in Tinder, using this date as a boundary.
Some of them are great dates. I will talk about that in a separate article.
