Bumble Success Story: Kristina + Eric
Kristina + Eric's story, as told to Bumble by Kristina...
"Last December, my roommate convinced me to download Bumble, "Kristina you need to get Bumble. The guys are more professional than other dating apps and you're in control!" So, I downloaded Bumble, more for entertainment than anything else. On December 6, 2015, I matched with a good looking man while I was bored. I decided to send a standard “hey, how are you?" (Very creative, I know). We talked for a bit and found out we both lived in Lincoln Park in Chicago - not too crazy considering it is a pretty popular neighborhood full of young professionals. We talked for about two weeks, discovering our many similarities. But, I was sick at the time so we didn't meet up; although in those two weeks I have never laughed and smiled so much at work.
During the second week talking, he asked me where in Lincoln Park I lived. Trying not to give a stranger too much information, I told him my just cross streets. He replied "OMG, me too.. Technically Greenview - I live next to Walgreens." I read that line 15 times and started sweating at my desk and thinking to myself, "There is NO way... am I being stalked?" I replied, "No way, Walgreens is basically my backyard."
Now, I really had to meet this guy. We planned the first date at one of our neighborhood bars, but instead of letting him pick me up from my door, we met at the corner. I remember getting there before him, peeking around from the side of the building. When I saw him walking up I thought, "woah, he is tall, he is cute, and he is REAL."
Our first date went well!! Weirdly we found out we go to the same dentist, even though they’re an hour outside the city (so crazy). After the date we parted ways at the same corner. Honestly, the fact that the date went so well and that we shared so many things in common kinda creeped me out. But, on our fourth date I finally let him walk me home and we shared our first kiss on my doorstep - the adorable kind you see in the movies. I was on cloud nine. As our relationship grew the corner has become our corner. Those coordinates will forever mean something to us.
Just this past Tuesday we celebrated our Bumble-versary. This January we will be celebrating our one year. To celebrate bumble and what the bee now means to us we bought a bee ornament for our first Christmas tree together!
Because of Bumble, I have loved better, laughed more and lived the best year of my life with my best friend."
