Bumble Success Story: Viv + Wyatt
Viv + Wyatt's story, as told by Viv...
Once upon a time, there was a gal name Viv who moved all the way from St. Louis to New York City, to follow her dreams of living in the big city. Her entire life, she was coined "Ms. Independent," because she didn't need no man to provide for her or make her happy.
“But how does one find a good man in this big city,” she wondered? She was then told by her peers that they key is through mutual friends, pure luck, or Bumble. “Hmmmm,” she thought, which one to choose? The bar scene didn't work, besides a few successful make out sessions. She decided to take a HARD pass on mutual friends... She guessed the only option left for this busy bee was to try Bumble.
A few swipes left and a few swipes right, Viv realized that Bumble was fun! It definitely helped that New York apparently has the largest pool of gorgeous, successful men to choose from. And, Viv wasn't necessarily hunting for her prince charming, she just wanted to have a little fun and meet new people in the city.
Many mouthwatering meals, delicious drinks, and delightful dates later, she stumbled on a man named Wyatt. She was intrigued by his dark hair, blue eyes, and thick AF mustache. “Hmmmm,” what could a quick swipe of the right finger lead her to, she thought. Apparently a date!!
Their first encounter occurred at Pera Soho, in Soho. She was impressed by his listening skills, restaurant/bar choices, and the many things they had in common. But, Viv's kissed many frogs and wanted to wait and see if this one had the potential to be her prince. Don't get it twisted, yes they were attracted to each other and the date went well, but sparks did not fly.
Like Viv always says, "Second times a charm"...
Wyatt and Viv decide to give a second date a try because why the F not, and it was a hit! Love was completely in the air, and Viv has never been more in love and infatuated with anyone in her entire life. "Ms. Independent" finally turned over a new leaf to realize she could allow herself to depend on someone.
But don't think for a second she's not taking care of herself and handling business while successfully making Wyatt happy, and having him doing the same for her.
Viv + Wyatt are now coming up on six months together and they can't wait to see what 2017 holds! In Viv's spare time, she even does mini snapchat stories giving her top tricks and tips to navigating Bumble. Of course, Wyatt records them because he thinks she's hilarious and enjoys helping her friends and the world find love.
Viv and Wy plan to make major strides in interracial dating AND educating people to not be afraid of online dating... you never know where it will take you.
