Bumble Success Story: Taylor + Fate
How long did it take to meet up after matching? What did you do for your first meet up/date?
Fate: "Took about a week. I asked her out on a date the first time we had a text conversation. I knew right away I wanted to take her on a date (because she replied to my weird questions with unusual comfortability)."
Taylor, what was the first message you sent on Bumble?
"I said something along the lines of, 'How could your bio NOT include a name pun?' Not my best."
Fate, what was your first reply back?
"It was something like 'I appreciate you not starting with a name pun' and then I told her that her music taste was great."
Taylor, how did this match feel different?
"He immediately picked up on my humor and started firing it right back at me. We were just super comfortable together right away."
Fate, how did this match feel different?
"The thing I noticed was she wasn't turned off by my humor. We had great conversation right off the bat. She made me actually laugh over text and at that point it was pretty clear I had to meet this girl in person."
Taylor, what was your first impression of Fate? How did you feel before the first date?
"I was really impressed. He had us start the date by walking his pup and the conversation just rolled naturally the entire time. He was so confident and funny I immediately began to have feelings for him! Before the date I was nervous, but in an excited way. I just really wanted to get to know him better!"
Fate, what was your first impression of Taylor? How did you feel before the first date?
"The first time I saw her was when she rolled down the window of her jeep. I only saw her face, but I was seriously struck by how damn beautiful she was. Then we actually had a conversation and I was just taken aback at how cool, funny, and interesting I thought she was. We really connected. I wasn't too nervous before the date; I figured either she'd like me or not. Not much I could do but be myself."
What do you consider a unique aspect of your relationship now?
Taylor: "I find it unique how I never question the validity of the relationship. I always know that he's there for me and vice versa. Also, there is seriously never a dull moment. We're constantly having fun with each other."
Fate: "The most unique thing I find is that I'm 100% about everything. I haven't doubted my feelings for her ever. And it's all been so easy. Falling for Taylor was truly one of the the easiest things I've ever done."
Where are you now? Where are you headed in the future? (Traveling, next steps, etc.)
"We are both students at UT Austin! We're enjoying our time together. In the future we're not quite sure where we will end up, but we know it'll be together (with our dogs)."
Thanks so much, Taylor and Fate, for sharing your story! We're so happy for you two!
