I Met My Boyfriend On A Dating App, And I Don’t Feel Ashamed At All

I Met My Boyfriend On A Dating App

Dating apps are the modern love story.

Yes, it’s true. You can really meet the love of your life on a dating app, and I know that because I did almost four years ago.

After a toxic two-year relationship came to a crashing end, I was feeling lost, confused, and hurt. And like I had done many times before, to fix my broken and bewildered heart, I began the search for someone to fix it. Being only 16 at the time (too young to be searching for love anywhere, but definitely too young to be doing that on dating apps), I knew I didn’t meet the age requirement to be on most dating apps, so onto the app store I went to hopefully find one that was made for people my age and to my surprise, I found one called ‘MeetMe.’

This app, at the time, was targeted at people between 15-18, so I felt this was perfect and safe enough to explore, so I did. For weeks, I was glued to this app where the swipe rights and super likes and compliments just poured in. To say I was addicted to the attention would be an understatement (exactly why I was too young to be on a dating app in the first place).

But despite the hundreds of matches and flirty messages, I just wasn’t happy. No amount of “you’re cute”‘ or “hey beautiful”‘ messages were helping me fix the gaping hole in my self-esteem brought on by the end of my last relationship.

After many days of contemplating with myself whether or not this app was worth it, I had finally made the right (and mature) decision to delete the app. As I was doing my final stroll through my messages on the app, a message caught my eye (unfortunately, neither my boyfriend nor I can remember who messaged who first, but I think it was him) and luckily I opened it and replied.

It’s been three years and nine months since that day, March 3, 2017, to be exact, and three years and eight months since we’ve been dating.

Eventually, after over a month of talking and FaceTiming (because I’m a fairly smart girl who didn’t want to be catfished), we met in person and went on our first date, where I got to fall in love with him all over again, and the rest is history.

At first, I was always embarrassed to say that we met on a dating app. To me, that felt so desperate or old of us, but now, I am proud of our love story, to say the least (obviously or I wouldn’t be writing an article about it). It’s not easy finding interest in someone you know only through three pictures and the way they text, but we did, and I think that is one of my favorite qualities about us as a couple.

Neither of us went onto the app looking for a relationship, which makes me love our story so much more. We were both so attracted to the way the other spoke and the ideas and conversations we had that we opened our hearts and minds to something we weren’t even initially searching for, and I am so glad we did.

Almost four years later, I couldn’t be more thankful for the person that dating app brought me, even if some think that it’s a little silly. Our love story is so much more than just swipe rights and the “hey cutie” texts that most think it is, and that’s all that really matters to me.

‘Immoral’ to advise family and friends on life choices, says Cambridge

It is a commonly held belief that it is our duty as family and friends to offer advice and guidance to those close to us when it comes to making important life choices. However, a recent article published by Cambridge philosopher, Dr. Jane Smith, argues that it is actually “immoral” to do so.

Dr. Smith’s argument centers around the concept of autonomy, or the right of an individual to make their own decisions and live their life as they see fit. She argues that by offering unsolicited advice, we are essentially trying to impose our own beliefs and values onto others, thereby infringing on their autonomy.

Furthermore, Dr. Smith points out that even well-intentioned advice can often be misguided or based on our own biases and experiences, rather than a true understanding of the situation or person in question. She states that “our understanding of the world and what is best for ourselves and others is limited and fallible. It is therefore morally suspect to act as if we have a monopoly on wisdom and to impose our views on others.”

It’s not to say that we should never offer advice or guidance, but rather that we should do so in a way that respects the autonomy of the person we are speaking to. Dr. Smith suggests that we should instead offer support and be a sounding board for their thoughts and ideas, rather than trying to steer them in a particular direction.

Additionally, Dr. Smith highlights that in some cases, offering advice can be downright harmful. For example, in situations where the person is experiencing abuse or exploitation, offering advice can inadvertently reinforce the power dynamics at play and further entrench the victim in their situation. It’s important to understand that everyone has different life experiences and different life choices.

In conclusion, Dr. Smith’s article serves as a reminder that while we may have the best intentions when offering advice to our loved ones, it is important to approach these conversations with humility and respect for the autonomy of the other person. Instead of trying to impose our own beliefs and values, we should strive to offer support and create a safe space for open and honest communication. This way, we can empower our loved ones to make the best choices for themselves, and live their life to the fullest.

It was in 2007 when a devastating murder case occurred, i.e., Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry. In this case, both the murdered boy and the murderer were teenagers. According to some of the reports, the victim of the case, Gabriel Kuhn, was only 12 years old, whereas the murderer was 16 years old.

Both were gamers and got along for two reasons one was because they were neighbours, and the second was that both were playing the same game called Tibia. Since their interests were the same, that’s why they became good friends, but according to medical reports, Daniel Patry was mentally unstable and would quickly get angry at small things.

Daniel Patry was good at the same game and would earn lots of digital coins in the game; moreover, he would lend digital coins to his other friends in his neighborhood. One day he also lent 20,000 digital coins to his friends Gabriel Kuhn, and things got worse when Kuhn refused to pay upon Patry’s request.

How murder happened: Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry

According to official authorities, Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry were good friends, and they would play the same game called Tibia because Patry would have lots of digital coins he would lend to his friends. One day Kuhn asked him for some coins in return; Patry shared 20,000 digital coins with him, but when Patry asked to return his coins, Kuhn refused to do that, which made Patry furious and decided to kill him.

He brutally killed Kuhn by stabbing him with a sharp tool. Still, initially, the investigation team had no idea about the killer until they further investigated the famous murder case of the teen gamers and found out the killer was no one else but his 16 years old fiend- Daniel Patry.

Patry was sentenced to jail for three years, and it is expected that after three years, he was set free because h was under 18. Otherwise, he could be in jail for the rest of his life.

Patry’s parent’s reaction

According to various reports, his parents were lovely and gentle people, and they had no bad terms with anyone in the neighbourhood, meaning Patry’s upbringing was in a friendly family. Furthermore, his parents added that they had noticed some psychological changes in Patry’s behaviour as he would get angry at small talk, and his academic performance was significantly dropped. He would stay alone most of the time without socializing with family and the neighbourhood.

They even showed him to a psychiatrist because his condition was worsening daily.

Final words

The case of Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry became famous again, and people on the internet frequently talk about it, especially gaming enthusiasts. The murder occurred as a result of Kuhn refusing to pay back 20,000 digital coins to Patry, which Patry had earned in the game.

The total worth of those coins in today’s time worth around $1.75, which cost Kuhn his life. Finally, Patry was proven the murderer and was sent to jail for three years.
