1. You're nervous about making a profile because you've pretty much heard all of the horror stories...
2. ...but you'll set your anxiety aside and remember the real reason you're starting this in the first place.
3. You pump yourself up for your adventure into this cold and unforgiving world.
4. As eager as you are to start swiping, you cannot for the life of you find decent pictures of yourself.
5. After searching relentlessly you finally find a few that capture your true beauty.
6. Once you're up and ready, you'll begin to get addicted to swiping...
7. ...until there's nobody new left around your area.
8. You'll get super excited for your first match...
9. ...but you'll stress over how to properly introduce yourself without sounding like a dork.
10. You'll get a little upset when your match takes forever to respond...
11. ...but when they finally do you'll forgive them and become smitten.
12. If it didn't workout with your match, you'll hopefully get over it and own up to your insecurities.
13. If anything, you learned to ignore all the creeps and haters...
14. ...and maybe even realized that you're much happier without it.
15. That is until you talk to your next match and start this crazy adventure all over again.
