Girls Gone Wild on Brisbane Tinder, Part XV: The Gen X(XX) Edition

t31

Lest the previous fourteen installments of this series have given you the wrong idea that going wild on Tinder is the sole domain of Gen Ys and Gen Zs (kids these days!) Tinder actually brings out the wild in all ages, including my Gen X middle age. It’s not just “Girls Gone Wild…”, it’s also “Mature Women Of Certain Age…”. Bless them all; why should only the young ‘uns carry the burden of giving Tinder (and online dating in general) “that reputation”? So, without a further ado, please say hello to your friends, neighbours and work colleagues.

Many of whom like their men like those of us who value checks and balances on majoritanism like our parliaments:

Or… coffee?

The more obvious punchline would have been “Long black with some extra cream”. Any adventurous readers are welcome to send me the reaction when you order your next “young, tall and hung” coffee at your local.

Many are looking for potential partners which such qualities as good humoured, dependable, honest and trusting. Others misspell (joking; they don’t).

Trust or not, it’s not just with men that the way to their heart is through their stomach. Here’s a lady who’s very fond of eggs and gravy and won’t spit it out your kitchen efforts either:

Speaking of food, this one is not for the faint hearted – the lady below will pay you to eat her pet cat. What a sicko. I would have called RSPCA but I’ve already blued-out her name.

This 48 46 year old one at least has more vegan tastes:

t27

Bee Gees, those Brisbane Boomer crooners, have once asked “how deep is your love?” but that was before this lady was even born. A slightly more materialistic Gen X has different concerns:

Meanwhile, back to vegetables, and men with large eggplants:

Your guesses are as good – probably better – as mine as to what kinks involve baby bottles of milk, puppies, teddy bears, cows, steak, chains and an axe. On the second thought, perhaps it’s safer not to guess.

And speaking of misspelling again, I think she’s looking for Garth:

In other news, it’s good to know that if you are a (professional?) feminist contemplating an extramarital affair you still have some standards:

But never mind written profiles; sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words – and two black strips:

t23

But sometimes it’s the 1000 words – or less – that really say more than any picture can. Such as in these two episodes of the nostalgic TV favourite comedy “Mother and Son”:

t30

As Ayn Rand wrote, “Oedipus Shrugged”.

It’s almost comforting after all this to find a mum who does not involve her kids in her Tinder:

Now I know why some men wear their baseball caps back. Until the next time!
