What do you do when you schedule a surprise skydiving date for your boyfriend’s birthday but he ends up breaking up with you five days before? First of all, how rude, right? Well, you can always seek revenge via the solicitation of a Tinder hook up. Not in the same fashion as all of the “Desperately seeking somebody…anybody?” type individuals. Something infinitely more classy and more likely to issue a sufficient clapback in ‘yo face’ by offering up his (the-EX’s) skydive to any reasonably sweet and attractive young man who responds! This is precisely the process a heartbroken young woman named Emma Vowell 19, put into motion following her boyfriend’s debauchee behavior.
Emma, who is from Indianapolis, had the skydiving date originally planned for September 15, 2017. A few days prior, the bottom fell out and her plan went to shizzle. As the skydives expired in November and Vowell had no interest in skydiving sans male counterpart, she made the decision to make an attempt to not allow them to go to waste. We can only assume also wanted to get some much needed peace of mind as well. Hence the Tinder skydiving date solution! This would surely be the ticket to provide Ms. Vowell her opportunity to skydive and dependent upon which way her theoretical sexy or not chips fell, or swiped, she could end up snagging a winner!
Vowell had initially decided to sell the skydiving tickets, but after the sale fell through, she changed her mind and the plan to make the most of her situation was hatched!
“These tickets were nonrefundable, so I tried to sell them because the thought of going without my ex made me sad, but the sale fell through,” Vowell explained. “Then I decided I wanted to go anyway for myself, because I’ve always wanted to skydive and now I have the tickets so I might as well, right?”
Did you guys read that? She wanted to go for herself! That statement right there is all the reason anyone would need to motivate them further anyway. Girls doing it for themselves is so much a more exciting prospect than the encumbrance of the dead weight she had originally scheduled to have packing in alongside her. Gross!
Vowell, who attends Purdue University, wrote on her Tinder bio, “Interesting story, my ex broke up with me the week of his birthday, so now I awkwardly have 2 skydiving tickets above the Chicago skyline that expire in november … just looking for a hot guy to go with instead. Zero percent of me wants to hook up with you.”
According to Powell she “got tons of responses” to her Tinder bio. “You suddenly become very popular when someone hears ‘free skydiving,'” she joked.
Austin Bates, a fifth year senior at Purdue University, caught her eye. The 22-year-old had a shirtless picture with a muscled chest and a very visible six-pack. Yes, please! He sported the simple slogan on his Tinder bio, “I’m just here to find my swolemate and show you pictures of my dogs.” Awww!
Bates jokingly offered to send his resume over for consideration. Vowell informed Bates he would need to send a cover letter as well. …Okay, who are you kidding, Ms.Vowell, you were sold on the shirtless, not that we blame you! To prove he was serious about going skydiving, Bates followed through by replying with a cover letter and a resume.
Bates said in his “cover letter” that he is majoring in Applied Exercise and Health and is enrolled in the Army ROTC program. He will then enter the army infantry. In his letter Bates stated, “After attending Airborne, Air Assault, and Ranger School, I will be stationed in either Hawaii or Germany, so there is little risk of me continually harassing you for additional skydiving outings.”
While participating in “adrenaline filled weekend excursions,” Bates said he had yet to complete his first skydive. Vowell said, “When I read it, I laughed so hard, but we actually have a lot in common.”
But she did add his “resume format was horrendous.” That’s right Emma, always keep him in tow by mentioning his deficiencies in the form of grammar and resume writing prowess. We mustn’t allow this young man to think he’s perfect or anything!
The pair met to grab a cup of coffee, and Vowell, convinced he was the guy, described him as “good looking” and “easy going.” Vowell did place emphasis on the fact that the two will be strictly platonic as they both had just exited relationships.
Vowell said prior to the skydive date, she was hyped about the experience and she “can’t wait to go” with Bates. The two took to the skies on October 28, 2017.
We have yet to hear what ultimately happened between Emma and Mr. Bates on their skydive, but we can guess it was exhilarating. As an added bonus, it’s safe to assume the miscreant ex has been sufficiently served as a result of this publication and many articles of its type.
