Bumble

 

For the sake of gender equality

Going Dutch comes naturally to me

I’ll buy you another drink

Maybe we’ll get a little drunk I think

 

I didn’t really care to meet you

But, as I had nothing else to do

I got on a bus not feeling the lust

You arrived late

 

Surprise!

 

you. looked. bloody. great!

 

Conversation flowed

So did the beers

We went to a new bar down the road

 

From absently app swiping

Progressing to

Shy smiles compiling each others life stories

Likes and dislikes

I only thought you’d be a good mate…

 

Did you just brush my thigh?

 

You asked if you could kiss me

And my tummy felt all tingly

My mind was decided

Late night burger breath

Your place is the best
