Fandango’s One-Word Challenge – Tinder, NOT Tender

Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC), April 27/21

Write a post using the word prompt. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction…any length! It can be just a picture or a drawing. No holds barred 🙂

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to the original post. And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity 🙂

Here is the link,

My Submission:

Our first date,

Not what I expected.

Online, you seemed kind and compassionate.

You spoke of your mother with high regard, which I appreciated.

But, meeting you in person… 

Your mouth is foul.

You shouted at the server,


I clearly mentioned that as a deal breaker in my profile: “Must not be rude to customer service representatives or servers.”

Did you even read it? 

I abhor this encounter and can’t wait to return home,

Slip into my pajamas,

And snuggle my kind and compassionate cats.

  1. You’re fortunate that you found out the person is not suitable on the first date and still “swipe left”. Some people only manage to realize much later in life.
