The Dater – About Me

If I am going to put my dating life out there who knows how many people to read it, you might as well have the full story on who I am.

Since this is all about dating and online dating is life right now, let’s level set here for a moment.

I have been on Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Match, eHarmony, Coffee Meets Bagel, and OKCupid. I have paid for dating services – Match and eHarmony. I have used the free shit – Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, CMB, and OKC. Out of all of these, I have had similar experiences.

Side Note: This is not a blog to compare platforms or to provide my opinion on which ones I like best/least.

Out of the current dating apps I am on, OKCupid has the most room for you to write about yourself. Therefore, I am going to copy and paste my OKCupid Dating profile below. This way you know exactly what I am putting out there into the ether.

About Me

Hi there, I’m Jenna.

Here are some words that describe me:

Funny – in an I laugh at my own jokes kind of way. It’s also a corny, dad joke, knee slapping, snorting and trying way to hard kind of way. Life can be stressful, and to me laughing is a way to relieve at least some of the stress.

Ambitious – continuing to grow and better myself personally and professionally is so incredibly important to me. If I don’t have something to work towards, I feel restless. Currently I am pursuing my MBA through the Carlson School of Management at the U. It is an amazing program, I’ve learned so much and have met so many incredible people.

Loyal – be that with friends, family, or a romantic relationship. Strong relationships are built on loyalty, and loyalty to me is a combination of trust, mutual respect and love.

Things I like to do:

Honestly, it depends on the season… aka the temperature outside.

Warmer months – I like to be outside when possible. Going to sporting events, fishing, sitting by a pool, art fairs, rooftop bars/restaurants, bonfires, camping, and just about anything else that gets me outside.

Colder months – explore new indoor bars and restaurants, binging new TV shows and watching movies, and anything else that involves staying warm.

What I’m doing on OKC:

My life is very routine, I wake up, go to work, go home, go to class, hangout and interact with the same people, and not a lot else. This routine doesn’t leave much room to meet someone.

I’m looking for something that is more than casual, but I am not looking to rush things. I want a relationship that will grow into something real and long lasting.

Thank you for reading and taking a few minutes to virtually “get to know” me.

You should message me if:

  • You laughed at my bad jokes/dry puns
  • You actually read this
  • You’re past the hook-up phase of your life

Okay – that’s my OKC dating profile for your entertainment.

One last thing please note that this blog is based on my experiences of dating as a heterosexual, cis-gender female. I am well aware that my narrative may be very different from someone else’s. If you do not like my posts, or do not agree with my thoughts – then don’t read it.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoy it! Also, I’d love to hear about your dating stories – they may get featured on my blog!

P.S. >> That’s me… the very strategically selected dating profile picture I use.
