On line dating really isn't my thing, but I do have both a Grindr and Scruff app on my iPhone (Scruff being the older, hairier, manlier version of Grindr).
I've never had many pick up attempts off either site (save for a bizarre "Can I lick your toes and then cum all over your feet?" request), so I thought I might change my picture to see what would happen.
So I went from this;
Taken back in March 2009, slightly boozed, but looking rather happy. To this;
Boxing Day 2011, new trimmed stubble in place trying to look brooding and serious (my forehead looks funny because I had to erase a fake tramp stamp tattoo from it. I do not do photo shop well!).
And the result? I think my phone was about to blow up with the amount of notifications it was getting. I felt oh so popular!
Interestingly, I was getting messages from guys that failed to respond to my previous attempts at striking up a conversation. I'm still the same person guys, but I've realised that you are a bit of a shallow cunt.
I still haven't progressed to meeting people off the apps - I'm just not in a hooking up frame of mind still. But it is nice to know that people do find me attractive enough to hit up.
