Dating App




All about a single friends experiences on one of the dating apps.

You look nothing like your photograph.
You never smile and never laugh.
You lied about your age and weight.
About your height and turned up late.
When others pass by day or night.
Your finger swipes either left or right.
You’re nothing like your fake bio.
You forgot to say that you’re a psycho.
You’re always drunk and talking crap.
100% match on the dating app.
