My Journey With The Flaming Logo Dating App  



Tinder dating app

The older you get, the harder to meet new people. I guess that’s the way it is with me and a number of my single friends. Weather male or female, for a working, independent single person in Egypt, it can be very challenging to find matches after you gradate from university. So why not use all the possibilities provided by the new technology era we live in? Online dating for example is becoming very common these days. There are many mobile applications dedicated only for dating. With a little research, Tinder App came my way as one of the hottest and trendy dating applications.

My eyes popped out when the flaming logo of the Hottest Dating App was installed on my mobile phone. Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like or dislike other users, and allows users to chat if both parties swiped to the right. If you swipe to the left it’s a nope and you can’t reverse it. I got excited about what it may bring me, and here is what I got:

I came across many pictures with little info. I had a number of good long chats that lead to nothing afterwards, not even a phone call. I guess may be some people feel lonely one night, and just want to chat till they fell asleep.

I saw my ex profile, the one who was the reason I joined Tinder to overcome our breakup in the first place. It was funny how I freaked out and swiped him very quickly with a big nope.

Shocking enough, I saw my best friend’s husband!!!! With quote saying life is too short to look for your soul mate! “Ya Ro7 Ommak!!!” I still don’t know should I tell her your husband is on a dating app or just keep my mouth shut?

There is Tamer, with four different personal photos from a guy with hair and beard to hair no beard to a bold head and sheaved beard! Confusing enough?! After a small chat he suggested talking on the phone faster. Here you go! The True Caller App revealed that his name was Sameh!! After a short talk, it was obvious that his profile info was false. And that was it, Block Tamer/Sameh guy.

Maged is 41 years old, divorced four years ago, obviously, didn’t heal from this experience yet. On our first chat, he couldn’t help condemning marriage, his ex, and the whole system in Egypt. That was enough for me, Block.

I came across Brad Pit, Ahmed Ezz, Mahmoud Abdelaziz (movies stars) but with different names! Seriously, what were these guys thinking when posting those pictures as their profile photos? Would any woman be interested in them? Sounds weird for me, what about you?

I actually liked straight forward guys who made it clear that they’re only interested  in a hook up, or one night stand thing. I find them easier to swipe no – unless this is what you’re looking for- than others who pretend to be looking for serious relationships, which actually just wastes your time.

After few days my Tinder experience came to an end. I deleted the app without finding a true match. I believe I didn’t install in my head the mindset that accepts the concept of online dating. I’m pretty much skeptical when it comes to making virtual acquaintances then bring them to actual reality. This is a fundamental concept you should have if you’re willing to go through the online dating experience. Therefore, I don’t think Tinder works for me, though I liked the idea of searching “available” matches in your area. You also get to choose the type of profession, education, and somehow the social status that matches with you.

Ashraf Hamdi’s ‘A Voice Note’ Returns With Another Heart-warming Story




Director/ Writer Ashraf Hamdi strikes again with the release of his latest VN14: “Only If Time Was..” and after one year of fans waiting around for another voice note, Hamdi didn’t disappoint and delivered an outstanding piece different than the others but still holds the same magic that we all fell for.

The Voice Note tells once again a love story, one that started with a spark but ended tragically, leaving us all in awe. It’s a story that shows chemistry between two but when bad timing interferes and fate gets in the way, it ends differently than one would have expected.

The Voice Note is featuring the beautiful Aya AbdelHamid and Khaled El Zommor with the voice-overs done by Hamdi and Heidy Ahmed and as usual is written, directed, edited by Hamdi. What makes it even more personalized this time, is that the entire music of the episode was composed from scratch and is courtesy of Ashraf El Ziftawi.

That was Hamdi’s first collaboration with a musical composer and he worked along Ashraf El Ziftawi for 3 months and before that they spent a year composing music for other commercials and work.


The music wasn’t the only highlight of the short film, but also the song at the end that was exclusively written and recorded for it, making the Voice Note more intriguing and special. 

We spoke with Ashraf Hamdi regarding these collaborations and he told us how unusual it is for him to do such a thing but he loves collaborating with fresh, young talents and shedding the light on their work. 

For those who don’t know, the Voice Note series is the creation of the brilliant Ashraf Hamdi where love stories are told through a voice note. Every Voice Note holds a story and every story was based on a meaningful inspiration.

In his stories, you can find ‘love you didn’t love’ or an experience that you relate to, or maybe a completion of a love story that you didn’t have the chance to completely live.

When asked why the VN14 took so long, his answer was simply that ‘you need to be inspired,” and we are so glad he did. He also revealed that he likes everything in the project to be very personalized, even the cast, he needs to connect with them and love them in a way.

We hope Hamdi stays inspired so we can get to witness more of his magic!

It’s Time You Walk Away When…




I hold my phone every other second, still, not a single word from him. I toss and I turn, not able to sleep, and I start to wonder, is he okay? What is he doing right now? Has he gone home safely? I’ll text and see. ‘No. Stop it. He’s fine not hearing from you.’ My overthinking begins to tell me.

Why is he okay not asking about me when I’m not? Well, maybe because this is my first sign that I should away.

1- They care less than you do

When your relationship starts getting fragile, it is important that the other person assures you that they have equal feelings. That you’re both in this together, and you will work it out, together. It should never be all on you, you shouldn’t be the only person making the effort. So stop being the quicker person to call, and stop worrying so much. Let them do the call, the texting, let them do the fixing. Because again, you’re in this together, or you’re out, you walk away.

2- They always make excuses not to meet

You want to meet up, go over things, discuss it like adults and come up with a plan, right? But it never happens, right? Because they always seem to find an excuse to get out of it, or they simply can’t do this same conversation again. They say they can’t do this fighting anymore, but when you’re fighting for your relationship, then it’s legitimate and if they can’t do it, they don’t deserve you.

3- They can’t be trusted

Relationships can lack several fundamentals, but one thing it should never lack, is trust. It is what relationships are built on, and once it is taken from the equation, the relationship falls. I’m not telling you to give up the second they do you wrong, but to earn your trust again, they should work hard for it, and this chance you are giving them, should never be taken for granted.

4- They are cold

The way they treat you is cold, the way they respond is cold, even the way they smile back at you is cold. This change in behavior can only be spotted by you, and when you start comparing their responses to the way it used to be, this is when you will get your answer.

Never allow yourself to be with someone, who just doesn’t seem to care anymore. Someone who’s keeping you, because they are being selfish, and not reasonable.

5- They exhibit an error in communication

Communication is a key to a healthy relationship, it’s important for the both of you to know that you’re standing on the same ground, that you both feel and want the same thing. It’s okay to experience some miscommunication, but what matters is for the both of you to admit having this issue; so you can work through it and get past it.

Try to allow the space for each of you to speak their minds, with no interruptions AT ALL. Listening is a key to understanding, and accepting that difference in your point of views, is another key.

I can never really tell you for sure that this is your cue to leave, because at the end, it’s not signs that you should follow, it is your intuition. So what does it tell you?
