This past week I finally decided to make a finsta. For those unaware, according to Urban Dictionary, a finsta is a ‘fake’ Instagram account where you post all the garbage you’re unwilling to show a majority of your followers. Mine is self-proclaimed pure gold.

Because I only follow a few people with my finsta, Instagram was being helpful and trying to get me to follow my phone’s contact book.

On another note, I am fully aware that some of you are reading this column for the first time. However, some of you are die-hard fans that have been reading since the beginning.

This past week, I accidentally revisited our old friend Matthew.

You may remember Matthew as the boy who couldn’t get it up but then later masturbated on my couch and exclaimed, “I cummed!”

I know, it’s my favorite story too.

I found Matthew’s account on Instagram all this time later. Naturally, I needed to follow his account so I could finally show all my friends what he looks like. If you were as bored and as nosy as me, you would do the same.

Less than an hour later, as I was FaceTiming some friends, he accepted the request and sent me a message asking if he knows me.

It’s been well over a year and so I reminded him that we met on Tinder a while back.

He confirmed that it was in Sacramento and that we almost had sex, all of which is true. Matthew then proceeded to assure me yet again that him not being able to get it up wasn’t my fault. (THANKS, I KNOW.)

No Matthew, unfortunately, you shouting, “I cummed” did not turn me on.

Men like this are insecure and so this got me blocked basically instantly.

I only tell this story because I think this is indicative of modern romance. People deserve to not feel alone in this weird digital age that we are struggling through.

The only real advice I have is to be honest. His masturbation didn’t turn me on and I told him so. It didn’t work out for me but I didn’t really care anyway.

Don’t waste your time worrying about these things. Think of the stories you’ll be able to tell 10 years from now. And don’t forget to take screenshots.
