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!

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
