Sex after one month of dating
A busy schedule and a string of dead-end dates left Jenn, 26, less than enthused about her nonexistent dating life. In August, the Jacksonville, Florida, couple were engaged.But at a friend’s suggestion (read: peer pressure and wine), she caved and created a Bumble account. Here, Jenn shares the sweet story behind their zero-to-60 relationship.It can be quick, just a drink, but I would just love to meet you before Monday.” Before James, I had talked to a few guys on Bumble, but James was the first person that I actually met up with.We ended up meeting for a drink that Thursday night.Besides, I was working crazy hours and had no time to go out on dates anyway.But over a few glasses of wine one night, my friend convinced me that I needed to meet someone and go out, so I signed up for Bumble. A big part of the reason that I swiped his profile was because we had so many friends in common [Bumble connects you through Facebook friends].I figured he had to be somewhat of a solid guy if we both had the same friends, right?
But I really don't buy that simply a series of glances right off the bat proves an accurate predictor of emotional connection potential.I thought he was attractive, obviously, and I could also tell from his pictures he loved to travel, which is something I love too.It was especially nice to have the chance to do a little more digging around with mutual friends before we started talking.His sisters were in the sand dunes taking pictures; I didn't know they were there at the time.He said a bunch of really nice things that I can’t remember because I was in shock. Then his sisters came running out of the dunes and drank Champagne with us.
