Seriously? All I have to say to Steve is, if you’re going to try to attempt to court someone on Tinder, spell your words correctly.

I swiped right on this one because we have the same hair. We do not have the same sense of humor. . .


I’ll be happy to show you the Gaza Strip, just let us build a land on peace like we’ve been trying to do and you’re more than welcome to come.

My friend swiped a moment on my profile because she saw a nice pool and then the sirens sounded. . .
