Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Sex & Relationships -

Why did you go on Tin­der? CANDI: ‘I’d just moved here from the UK so it was good to meet peo­ple.’

ANDY: ‘I was heart­bro­ken from a long­term re­la­tion­ship and was fi­nally ready to get back out there.’

How many dates did you go on be­fore see­ing each other?

C: ‘A lot! I was on Tin­der for two and a half years be­fore I met him.’

A: ‘Around four.’

What at­tracted you to their pro­file?

C: ‘He had a dog in his pro­file pic­ture – works every time.’ A: ‘She Su­per Liked me so her pro­file jumped to the front of the line.’

Who made the first move?

C: ‘Af­ter Su­per Lik­ing him, I said “hello”. Why not? Girls can make the first move.’

Where was your first date?

A: ‘At a bar on a Satur­day.’

C: ‘Typ­i­cally I have a rule that I don’t date on week­ends ’cos that’s time for my friends, but I made an ex­cep­tion. When the af­ter­noon rolled around I couldn’t be both­ered go­ing, but my room­mate made me.’ A: ‘A cou­ple of drinks in, I re­alised I re­ally liked her and gave her a kiss. We didn’t want the date to end so we went for din­ner and then had break­fast the next day. It was rain­ing, so I lent her my favourite jumper and she wore it home. That way she had to see me again!’

What was your first im­pres­sion? C: ‘Great, he’s not short!’

A: ‘I thought she was cute.’

Where did you go on your sec­ond date?

C: ‘A dif­fer­ent bar, about a week af­ter our first date. I was re­ally ex­cited to see him.’

A: ‘I ac­tu­ally thought she was stand­off­ish. I left think­ing I’d to­tally blown it and wouldn’t be get­ting an­other date.’

C: ‘I didn’t realise I was be­ing like that, I had a great time.’

When did you be­come of­fi­cial? C: ‘Around eight weeks af­ter we first met. We went to the Hunter Val­ley, NSW, with my friends and I re­alised we had some­thing pretty great.’

A: ‘She pulled me aside and said, “I wouldn’t hate it if you wanted to be my boyfriend.” She took the lead again! From that day on we were a cou­ple.’ Candi, when did you realise he was The One?

C: ‘In the UK you al­ways buy a hat when you get in­vited to a wed­ding, so my best friend and I would text each other “buy a hat” if a date was go­ing well – and I mes­saged her that dur­ing our very first date just af­ter he kissed me.’

What’s your ad­vice to some­one on Tin­der RN?

C: ‘Don’t be afraid to make the first move.’
