life through eyes of tinder

yes, i was that naive person who started to use tinder with this big willingness just to meet new random people all around me without making big effort

now i know that life works differently. and from some point i started to use this application just for checking out people who are living around me. funny, but from this kind of ‘narrow minded’ profile that everyone needs to put out there, you can conclude a loooooooooot about each individual as well as some part of society in general

so here are few of my conclusions that i’ve made while using this app. don’t take anything personally if you’re in my friend list because of fact that i met you on tinder… maybe i just should rewrite this blogs comment by its title and mention that you shouldn’t take personally anything that is written down there…

anyhow, that was not the topic. people on tinder! or this more seems like my never-ending questions about this app…

  • danes loooooooove to highlight the fact that they are tall. it is funny, but actually i believe that almost everyone who is tall, has written it in his tinder tumblr_mlrclaKVWK1so58mbo1_400profile… ’2 meter athlete’, ‘1.98 of greatness’… like really… what are you trying to hide with this?! or is this some ‘must do’ around here? what am i missing?
  • although in my search there are girls as well as guys, girls tend to be in a looooot smaller amount than guys. why? are there really more guys using this app? or tinder just chooses in my place? nothing makes sense anyways…
  • region tendency – selfies. so many selfies!!!!! and not the kind-of-normal-selfie ones, but the ones where half naked guys photograph themselves in mirrors while looking in their phone screens with eyes in insane passion… once again i’m talking about danish tinder users. that’s why i’ll call this regional shout out, haha
  • if you’re using this app while traveling – notice that it does not change your placement right away. that was the moment when i was surprised by how many italians are living in denmark…
  • people have so many identities! i bet that someone might think the same about me, but like really… in one picture you are chubby soldier, in next one fitness model, in third one father of three children. how the hell… or wait! is it willingness to fit any type of person who sees this?! but still…

after all i can be happy about this consolatory coincidence that i have noticed –  i have more common interests with people who does not have half naked selfies or comments about their height in profile… this could be the moment when i’m thankful for my interests, haha

and now i just feel willingness to share with you something that has nothing to do with anything

stay safe, guys!

p.s. i still have idea to make Q&A video one day, so feel free to express yourself > ask.fm/therandomp

what’s new, pussycat?

travelling and living in different places always brings something new in your life. a bit more than last three months i spent in italy and only now, when i just day ago arrived back in northern part of civilization, i realized what has changed in my life while living in italy.

  • i don’t know how to cross the street! even thou here are not many cars by my place, i get as close to getting driven off as you
    can get. EVERY-FKN-TIME. i just go. and that’s a mistake. no one does that here. even when street is empty people are waiting for green light. i don’t even notice traffic lights in general anymore…
  • if we’re talking about native people, i am really (really, REALLLY) used to the fact that 99,99(9999)% of people, ok, i’m talking about guys, really do have only brown eyes and beards. in just few last hours i’ve catch myself in empty staring with half-way open mouth at guys who have blonde hair and blue eyes. although in italy there were many tourists, i still haven’t seen so many blonde people in one place in a looooooooooooong time. 
  • 2014-06-21 14.13.41i am saying ‘ciao!’ as ‘hello!’ and ‘bye!’ to everyone. the saddest part in it – it is not so common to greet everyone here. not in the shops, not your neighbors, not… anyone! especially they will look at you with weird look if you’re leaving shop with bright smile and loud ‘ciao!’. no. do not do that. (ieva, do not do that…).
  • timing. i was pretty sure that still till the last day italian slowness irritated me. i know that i started to get along with that, but still – needed some more time to completely calm myself down if i needed to wait for something. now i can’t catch up with people. everything is happening like each second has value of lifetime. SLOW DOOOOOOOOOWN, please. pretty please!
  • i am used to take off my clothes only when it’s at least +30. +20 does not count. you do not walk with skirts in +20 !!!!!! such an insanity…

2014-06-21 14.52.21no, actually i’m joking. it’s only +18 here now and once and again i’m the only one showing my naked legs…

  • trashes. italians are obsessed with recycling. now, when i have only one trash bin where to put everything, i often unconsciously leave some things outside just because it does not feel right to put everything in one place… then i go back and wonder – why i haven’t thrown it out?!

enough with my new lifestyle traditions for now. lifts, wind and bicycles – it’s still a thing!!! now i can live happily ever after

cheers, folks!
