THE TIME A TINDER DATE TOOK ME TO SKID ROW

  1. β€’
    I met a great guy on tinder and we had several mutual friends
  2. β€’
    He was a comedy director
  3. β€’
    On our first date, I met him at his house, which had several mattresses piled outside in the front yard
  4. β€’
    He said he had been shooting a video
  5. β€’
    He wouldn't tell me where we were going on our date. So we got in his car to mystery location
  6. β€’
    30 Seconds to Mars was on his ipod
  7. β€’
    As we drove, we got closer to downtown LA
  8. β€’
    And then the bad parts
  9. β€’
    And then skid row

    I thought to myself, an online date is way too predictable a way for me to die. But oh well. Here we go! It's been a good run.
    I texted my friends πŸ”«πŸ™ˆπŸš«πŸ˜πŸ”ͺπŸ”ͺπŸ”ͺπŸ™…πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸΌπŸŽ±πŸ’‰πŸ’ŠπŸ’‰

    But next thing you know, I was at some Step Up-esque underground slam poetry rap battle in a hidden, beautiful amphitheater
  12. β€’
    And it was one of the most interesting and beautiful things I'd seen my entire life
  13. β€’
    So basically, you can find beauty in unexpected places

    That guy ended up being weird though
