If you are living in a large town or city in the Czech Republic, I highly recommend letting go of any stigma that you feel about these apps in the States.

When we did finally meet in person in Prague the middle of September, my nerves overwhelmed me.We continued to talk daily and continued to meet in cities around the Czech Republic.The more time we spent together, the quicker my self-made walls fell down.I was worried that his online persona and true self would be different—but I was extremely anxious that the real me would not live up to his perception of online Kelley.With that, I put up walls on our first date that had not existed in our online communication.
