Michael

21

Need someone to bring home for Christmas because I panicked and told my family I had a girlfriend and now they’re insisting that she comes on our annual Christmas trip with us.

Must be okay with being called Rose.

Must have a passport.

 

As I read this guys Tinder profile, I chuckled to myself.

Maybe this guy just wrote that to get girls attention, or maybe he was serious, but he was cute anyway so I swiped right with very little hesitation.

It was a match, and I smiled as I typed out my message to him.

 

Rose?

 

I went back to swiping for a little bit as I ate lunch before I put my phone into my pocket, packed up my stuff, and headed to my 2 o’clock class that was across campus.

I sat in my usual seat in the back row on the aisle. I pulled my laptop from my backpack and got onto my universities website before logging in, selecting my class, and opening the PowerPoint that I knew my teacher was going to go over in excruciating detail.

Half an hour into my class, I got a notification in the top right of my computer screen informing me that ‘Michael’ had just sent me a message on Tinder. Since I had already taken my notes on the slide my professor was on, I decided to take a short break from my half-paying-attention to read the message.

I clicked on the small pop up and was redirected to Tinder.

 

Yeah. I kinda told my asshole brother that I had a girlfriend after he was making fun of me for being single like my entire life and when he asked me what her name was I said the first one that came to mind.

 

I chuckled and smiled to myself. If this guy was being truthful, talking to him would be entertaining at the least.

 

You’re an idiot lol

How’s the hunt for finding a ‘Rose’ going along?

 

He messaged back within a few seconds.

 

Not as well as I had hoped. I leave for home in eight days and I’ve yet to find someone who pities my situation enough to help me out.

 

I shook my head, now starting to think that his profile bio might’ve actually been truthful. I found that fact weirdly entertaining, and thought that I might as well see if he’d be up for me possibly being this girl because hey, who doesn’t want a free trip?

 

What all have you told your ‘asshole’ brother about ‘Josie?’

 

I’ve kept it incredibly vague. I told him that she goes to my college and that she’s incredibly kind and when he asked me what she looked like I legit only said, “she has brown hair” because I wanted to keep my option of girls open.

 

I let out a small snort of laughter and the girl next to me gave me a weird look and I just gave her a half-way shrug in response.

 

You’re a doof

 

*Emoji of a guy shrugging*

You’re the one that swiped right lol

Wanna grab coffee later?

 

I weighed my options for a moment. I could either spend the rest of my night studying for my finals that start in three days or I could take a night off from constant studying so my brain didn’t explode from trying to remember everything.
