Earlier this week I was having a drink swiping through Tinder. Accidentally super swiped on someone. I was like alright whatever, it is what is. Well a but later we matched. Her bio shows she shares a bunch of my hobbies. Spark up a conversation with a compliment on her cosplay. Messaging back and forth late into the night. Well we continue to talk the next day a half throughout the day between work and stuff.
Now I have a unique name for a small town. I go by a short form of my name. Needless to say it’s notable. She tells me I work with her sister. Now I guess who the sister is. Me and the sister talked about hobbies and stuff a few months ago and she talked about having a sister that I’d get along with as we share the same unique hobbies. The girl I’m messaging says her sister has talked a bunch about me, all good stuff over the few months from when we have worked together. So I’m like that great to hear. Good character reference.
It gets better. She then asks are you thej-jem that used to work at X fast food restaurant? The staff were always talking about this guy that used to work there by your name. They would tell great stories. All good stuff it turns out. I did work there and told her that it was me. I haven’t worked there in over 5 1/2 years and they still talk about me.
Well I got her number and we’ve been texting throughout the day for the last few days. Asked to hangout and we will hangout next week.
I know stuff like this is common for people to know everyone in a small town. But it’s just great to hear things line up in my favor and that I’ve made such a good impact on a bunch of people in my town that they remember and still talk about me.
What’s your story?
