So I've been single for a while and there are several reasons for that (one of them is moving to a smaller town) as well as the fact that I've been trying to hold out for a vegan - or at least vegetarian - partner. A couple of people in my life suggested I use the Tinder app. I have always avoided it in the past because I thought it was for 18 year olds and/or sleazy no tell motel hook ups. Apparently a lot of people now use it for regular dating and meeting people in their area, so I gave it a shot. Well on my very first day I got a match with a man who is in my classes at school. I already know him, albeit not well, but he is someone who is in my major program so I have been seeing him in class on a regular basis since last semester and will continue to do so this semester. Sometimes he's friendly, sometimes he's not but I guess he's a quieter person than I am. At any rate HE IS VEGAN. I know he's vegan because we are acquainted, and I do find him attractive. On the other hand, I'm not sure if he "swiped right" because he's truly interested or if it was a courtesy to always swipe right for a fellow vegan. I thought I should wait for him to make the first move, to send me a message or else talk to me on campus. What would you do? Should I message him to acknowledge our match on Tinder or am I doing the right thing by waiting for him to approach me? It's both exciting and awkward. Exciting because I know he's someone who shares my values and goals, but awkward because if he's only casually or mildly interested I don't want to invest too much when there will be consequences in my life every week for the rest of the semester.
