Flirt dating tube
Why can’t British men show a natural, healthy appreciation of women? I can’t remember the last time I saw this happen on the London Tube.
Last week, on the Paris Métro, I had a marvellous boost. Naturally timid British men have now become so terrified of causing offence that they’ve given up on flirting altogether — even that casual meeting of eyes that used to make the day go with a swing is a thing of the past. I can’t entirely blame British men for their timidity.
Does a harassed Londoner really have time for all that?
Surely you could easily save time and enjoy some harmless flirtation on your commute home.
Instead of commuting, we should think of it as uber speed-dating instead.
You can always get off at the next stop if things get awkward.
To celebrate the great underground’s idiosyncrasies, they started tweeting at @tube_boob to capture some classic tubetastic moments and taboos.
Here they look at the likeliness of meeting the love of your life on the Tube…
But the process of staring, judging, and messaging potential suitors from afar—hallmarks of modern dating apps—is not new. Two nightclubs in particular—the Resi and the Femina—pioneered the trend.But the article refers to the system of phones and pneumatic tubes at each table as the Resi’s “big lure.” Phones were fixed to individual tables, and above many was a lighted number.Singles needed only to look around the room until a fetching stranger caught their eye, note the number, and then direct a message to that table. You spot someone you fancy on the Tube, fantasise about your deliciously perfect life together, name your three kids and… You’ve reached your stop and your soul mate has vanished into the murky ether of the underground forever.But fear not, fellow singletons, for help is at hand.
