Tim Wright/Grindr

Some peoples' New Year's Resolutions in 2020 were probably to take more risks.

Maybe to jump into things without overthinking it more and more.


And some people have taken that to its truest extreme, such as Tim Wright, from London, who went overseas to meet a guy he had just started talking to--on Grindr.

Tim Wright started talking to his anonymous Grindr sweetie on the morning of January 22nd.

"It was boilerplate Grindr fodder, 'what do you do?', 'what are you into?', exchange with a couple of pics," Wright told PinkNews.

"He told me that he lives in West London and was free to meet tonight, or after he gets back from his weekend away in Helsinki and jokingly said: 'Unless you wanted to come to Helsinki?'"

Wright decided now was the time to put his hypothetical New Years' Resolution into effect.

"Twenty minutes later and I've booked my flights with Finnair. Another five minutes later and he gave me his name and number!"

A blind date to Helsinki—no name required!






But go to Helsinki and enjoy his blind date, Tim did.

He posted all over Twitter about it while it was happening.





So though it didn't become the romance meet-cute (and meet-without-knowing-anything-about-the-other-person) that we were hopeful for, it's still a great story.

"It's...a better first date than getting too drunk in a Wetherspoons and making out in a back alley," concluded Wright.

Yep....definitely classier, at least!

Some of our possessions are no-brainer, have to have them, best things in the universe. Others are total beaters, through and through liabilities, that should have been trashed years ago.

But what about those possessions that fall right in between?

In the age of the internet, sometimes it can be very cool to hate on things just because other people do. Bandwagons can be fun, right? But honestly, not all of the things hated on actually deserve it. Save your hate for things that actually call for it.
