12 Tipe Cowok Tinder

Belum pernah denger aplikasi Tinder? Then congratulations anda bukan termasuk jiwa-jiwa tersesat yang putus asa mencari cinta. Aplikasi ini bukan cuma buat para jomblo-wan jomblo-wati, even the 'in-relationship guys' pada ikutan swipe kanan kiri. So girls be careful, always check out your boyfriend's cellphone every minutes!

Me? Well gue download aplikasi ini bukan karena desperate dalam pencarian cinta, ini pure hanya untuk experiment (alasan!). Dan yeah sukses menjerat temen-temen sepermainan untuk ketagihan main ginian (like always). Gue sendiri udah menjadi bagian komunitas ini selama kira-kira enam bulan. Udah cukup lama bergabung sih ya, tapi sempet cuti lama (alasan!).

Gak sedikit artis-artis yang main Tinder mulai dari pemain film, band, pembaca berita, sampe olahragawan. Banyak juga ketemu temen-temen lama, cinta monyet waktu SD, kakak kelas favorit, sampe my long ago and far away crush. Setelah sekian lama berkecimpung dalam dunia Tinder, gue menyadari sesuatu bahwa cowok-cowok di Tinder memiliki pattern yang bisa di bagi-bagi menjadi beberapa tipe. I'm not talking about the normal guys tho, cause they're NORMAL, end of line, no comment. So these are the types of guy (based on pictures) that I met on Tinder around Jakarta Bogor Depok Tangerang Bekasi:

1. The Shirtless Guy
Bio: "Love to workout and live life to the fullest. Seeking the same fit good looking girl to have some fun. Only in town for 3 nights, maybe you can come over" Please put your shirt back on! #SwipeLeft unless you're looking the same thing.

2. Animal Lover
Bio: "Sensitive male. Not like the other guys, I swear! Xoxo" Having a dog or cute kittens makes you 50% hotter. But hugging crocodile, tiger, snake or some other terrifying animals? Naaah, I'll probably pass!

3. Grouppie
Tipe cowok yang cuma upload foto bareng temen-temennya, pertanda pria-pria kesepian yang gak percaya diri. Pick the ugliest guy and that's your man! #SwipeLeft

4. Super Outdoorsy Dude
Semua foto fokus pada aktivitas luar ruangan: swimming, diving, skiing, biking, hiking, traveling to exotic places. Seriously no human is that active! But hey this kind of guy is my alpha male type, sometimes they see things differently. And well that's kinda sexy #SwipeRight

5. Tukang Foto
Editan foto bagus dengan resolusi yang oke, kadang menutupi seluruh wajahnya dengan kamera SLR/DSLR biar terlihat seperti anak fotografi profesional and act like a hipster. Padahal who knows kalo itu cuma kamera dapet minjem.

6. Guy Who Is in A Band Boy Band
Biasanya foto bareng drum, gitar akustik, gitar elektrik, bass, saxophone, piano, bahkan ukulele. Dengan foto yang seperti itu mereka berusaha mengatakan "Date me and I'll sing a song for you every morning to brighten your day" Musicians are sexy #SwipeRight.

7. Trust Me I'm an Engineer
Selalu terlihat dengan topi proyek safety first dan kemeja di hamparan tanah merah, depan goa, atau tengah laut. Kadang terlihat seperti pria sejati? Well, swipe right if you wanna know. 

8. The Supir Pesawat Guy
Bio: "Swipe me right and I'll take your heart fly away with me above the clouds to eternity" Mereka terlihat oke dengan seragam, dont you think? Take off that uniform and they'll look like a common dude.

9. The Suit Up
"I am the man with the plan and I love it when a plan comes together. Bright future is waiting for me to come. Next CEO, entrepreneur wanna be" Fancy suit, fancy words #swiperight ladies!

10. The Silly Guy
These guys absolutely have a good sense of humor, totally willing to look dumb. I bet they're not a boring kinda guy. They usually have an equally funny bio featuring witty or self deprecating one-liners.

11. Old Man
Ew. This is the worst, the GRANDDADS! It’s weird, it’s awkward, it’s disgusting, and just kinda all around wrong. But I guess everyone needs love. Also, kudos to you old man for being able to operate a cell phone other than just the Jitterbug. Impressive. Anyways, still swipe left. Always. Swipe. Left.

12. The Riddler
A man who for personal or professional reasons has chosen to remain a mystery on his profile. But if there is no photo of the man whatsoever, take that square, drag it to the left, and let’s never talk about it again.

P.S. Apabila kebetulan menemukan wajah anda dalam artikel ini, anda dapat meminta saya untuk menyamarkan atau menghapus nama anda. Thanks.

The Iron Throne

I usually shared my favorite things in this blog but I forgot to mention Game of Thrones (GoT)! So now let's talk about GoT. It's a really long story to tell but people sum it up in a few words. Not my words tho, that's what people say but I think they describe it really good. 


I didn't know that this show was so damn great (not in particular scene). I watched this series long before I like it (weird?). It happened when I unintentionally downloaded the first episode and fell asleep in the first 5 minutes so I assumed that the show was so boring, but naaah it wasn't because the show. It was just because I was too sleepy but forcing my eyes to open. 

It started again when me and Mano argued about GoT, I said it was a boring series that showing snow all over (in the first scene), he insisted that no it wasn't boring at all and in fact it was the best series of all time. He was the kind of person who was too picky to watch a show but he liked this one, so I gave it a sober try.

My first impression with the first scene was "still a boring scene" in the first 3 minutes but it was getting pretty intense with the appearance of the wight. The clothes, the accent, the swords, the fat king, the Others, the magic, the children of the forest and the dragons are like Lord of The Rings featuring Skyrim. Well the other stuff, you tell me.

The series is based on a book series A Song Of Ice And Fire. I've been reading the book after I watched the fourth season of GoT. Now I'm reading the third book and not finished it yet for three months, geez. The book is even better (ofcourse)! So many details in every plot, and show us every character's thoughts through different point of view.

Speaking of characters, the writer (George RR Martin) really fond of killing the good men and you can't have a favorite character because he will tear you apart and crush you down! I was literally crying for Jory Cassel, Eddard Stark, the Red Wedding, and the tragic death of my Red Viper (Oberyn Martell). Bet everyone shocked in the Red Wedding and Oberyn scenes, but hell yeah we all got revenge in Purple Wedding. The viewers was cheering up on the death of 19 year old boy king, Joffrey Lannister's Bastard Baratheon. Everybody died for the Iron Throne and some people enjoying the game.

The most interesting thing in this series is the characters. All of them are grey, no one is black and no one is white. For example, Jaime Lannister the Kingslayer. You may say he is the villain in the first season, but then something changed in the following season and you start to pity on him. It's full of surprises and twisted plot like Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish who was the man behind Jon Arryn's death that leads to Robert 'King' Baratheon death, Ned Stark decapitation, and then Stark's rebellion, making the Joffery bastard the King, Stannis' participation to claim the Iron Throne, the murderer of Renly baratheon who was killed by his own brother Stannis, Greyjoy's second rebellion, the runaway of Bran and Rickon Stark, and aaaaall of the mess in the Seven Kingdom.

There are some different story in the North of the Wall and across the Narrow Sea. In the North you'll see so much snow, ice, the black brothers, wildlings, giants, magic, the Others (White Walkers), children of the forest, and Hodor! Across the Narrow Sea is Daenerys Targaryen's scenes, you'll see dragons, Ser "King of Friend Zone", desert, slaves, and Dothraki people.

If you haven't seen this series, please please watch it. I bet you can't just stop watching it after you see the first episode. You won't regret it!

Bus Legs

You can say that the girls who use mass public transportation everyday from Bekasi to Jakarta (which feels like going from Pluto to Earth) are strong girls. Oh I didn't mean to brag about myself, but that's pretty much the truth tho. Yeah I am strong, I even could do 5 tons lifting weights. Strong forearms, strong legs I had from standing up on the bus everyday with the scents of human flesh around. Could you imagine? Oh don't.

People usually nap on the bus when they get a seat in a crowded situation. That's what I call happiness. But standing up doesn't break myself down to do a nap. If you ask me what I'm good at, I'll say "nap standing up on the bus". I have this ability that I've been training for three years, the ability to remain upright and not stumble while standing in a moving bus. Geez, what a bus legs right!

They asked "How the hell did you do that?". Easy cheesy! Just close your eyes. Feel the connection between your hands, arms, legs, and your whole body to your brain. It's pretty much the same like doing the step on rapid dream so you still can control your legs. Remember, this is a nap, not sleeping, so don't sleep deeply or you'll fall.

My dad can't sleep on the train, my friend can't sleep on the airplane, my sister can't sleep on the bus, my brother can't sleep on angkot. Me, I'm just really good at napping and sleeping anywhere anytime, especially in class. Amine said if there were a championship for napping, we surely would be the winner!!

He's Just Not That Into You

A couple of weeks ago I re-watched a movie called "He's Just Not That Into You" and it was good, like really. It brought back so many memories of first dates. All of the confusion, unreturned texts, broken hearts, misread signals, and the embarrassments.

Surprisingly, this movie was based on the self-help book of the same name by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. I was curious about this book and had no idea if the book isn't like a novel. It was literally like a dating handbook, but I read it anyway and pretty fun tho!

Here are some badass quotes from the book that really 'ngena abis!':

“A man who wants to make a relationship work will move mountains to keep the
woman he loves”
― Greg Behrendt

“Let’s start with this statistic: You are delicious. Be brave, my sweet. I know you can get lonely. I know you can crave companionship and sex and love so badly that it physically hurts. But I truly believe that the only way you can find out that there’s something better out there is to first believe there’s something better out there. What other choice is there?” 
― Greg Behrendt 

“Don’t spend your time on and give your heart to any guy who makes you wonder about anything related to his feelings for you” 
― Greg Behrendt 

“I’m about to make a wild, extreme, and severe relationship rule: THE WORD "BUSY" IS A LOAD OF CRAP AND IS MOST OFTEN USED BY ASSHOLES. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. Remember: Men are never too busy to get what they want.” 
― Greg Behrendt

“When it comes to men, deal with them as they are, not how you’d like them to be.” 
― Greg Behrendt

“If a guy truly likes you, but for personal reasons he needs to take things slow, he will let you know that immediately. He won’t keep you guessing, because he’ll want to make sure you don’t get frustrated and go away.” 
― Greg Behrendt

“..he may love you, he may miss you, but ultimately he's just not that into you.” 
― Greg Behrendt

"If a dude isn't calling you when he says he will, or making sure you know that he's dating you, then you already have your answer. Stop making excuses for him, his actions are screaming the truth: He's just not that into you."
― Greg Behrendt

“We’re taught that in life, we should try to look on the bright side, to be optimistic. Not in this case. In this case, look on the dark side. Assume rejection first. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception.” 
― Liz Tuccillo
