Rest in peace, professor

Hy guys, and welcome to my blogpost in remembrance of Professor Martin Stein, half of Firestorm. Aka, one of my favorite characters in the Arrowverse. To all of you who haven't seen the crossover yet, well.. It's to late if you've already read the title of this blogpost.
I'm still thinking it will be a dream and I still have to watch episodes 3 and 4 of 'Crisis on Earth-X'.. But twitter keeps reminding me it's real, they killed Martin, our beloved professor Stein.

I still remember the first time we met Firestorm. The 8th episode of The Flash, Flash vs. Arrow we actually didn't meet Stein but Ronnie (and Stein inside) as a homeless man who released fire from his hands when he almost got robbed.

That also was the first time that we learned that Ronnie was alive.. The good old times. We actually didn't have a clue that Stein was inside his body....yet.

He changed from the guy who was afraid of a lot of stuff to the guy who gave his life for his teammates. His bond with Jax may have been psychic but he definitely was the father figure the rest of the team looked up to too.

In the first episodes of this massive 2 night (4 episode) crossover, I remember Stein saying "I want to tell my grandson stories of our adventure. I want to teach him how to play chess". And I really wanted this to be true for him. They got the 'cure' for Firestorm in their pocket but they were waiting for a more relaxed moment to take it and split up Firestorm.

The part that made me (and a lot of others) cry the most was not his death or the fact he was going to die. No. It was the part after his death when Sarah visited him that made me sob the most. She didn't say a thing but omg, I cried my eyes out!

After this part, we got a look at the rest of the team members and I almost missed this precious moment (it made me sob even more). ->

I really hope they will keep his glasses on the waverider as a reminder of Martin and his wonderfull time as the last part of the original Firestorm.

"He was the best man, right until the end. The best teacher. Friend. Husband. Father." - Jax

His last words to Jax were as fitting as they could be for Stein : "I hope your life is long and full of love, just as mine has been". 
And I really hope he will be right.

Tell Ronnie we miss him, Rest in peace Grey.

This was, like I said, the most devastating death in a long time. It will be a while before the hole in our hearts will be filled again. Goodbye Grey, but don't forget: Legends NEVER die.

Tv Time Tag

Hy guys!

And welcome to the last "normal" blogpost of the year!
Next week you'll get a look at what I'm gonna write for blogmas this year ;)
But this week I'm doing a blogpost I've been working on for a while.

As you all know, I'm a big fan of the app TvTime. It's amazing to keep track of the shows you've watched, are watching or still want to watch. God, this sounds like an add but it's not XD (yet :p)

On the app, you have a lot of things you can do besides having a list of the shows you've seen/follow. You can changer your accounts background to your favorite serie, you can make a top 6 of your most favorite shows, you can keep track of how long you've been watching series and you can choose a character in the 'If I was a tv character, who would I be?' segment.

And that last part is what made me think of this blogpost : The Tv Time Tag

So, I made a list of   tags based on that one line :p Enjoy!

1) If I was a TV Character, I would be...

Max Black (Kat Dennings) from 2 Broke Girls. Max is my all time favorite, I would love to have herpersonality. What a girl!

2) If I would be a TV Character, I would be...

Jamie Campbell (Kristen Connolly) from Zoo. She is the underdog that doesn't get mad that often but when she does, she is mad, just like me. She evolved into a badass and that's what I'm trying to be for myself. Someone who can stand up for herself.

3) If I could kiss a TV Character ATM, I would kiss...

Josh (Cameron Moulène) from Foursome. I mean, come on, wouldn't you?

4) If I could marry a TV Character, I would marry....

Blaine Anderson (Darren Chriss) from Glee. Unfortunately he's gay in the show so that wouldn't really work out now would it?

5) If I could go on an adventure with a TV Character, I would go on an adventure with...

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) from The Flash. Bring on the action!

6) If I could watch a movie with a TV Character, I would watch a movie with...

Nate Heywood (Nick Zano) from DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Don't really know why but he seems like a great guy to watch a movie with :p

7) If I could have a TV Character as my kid, I would choose...

Ben Pemberton (Jack Stanton) from The Mick. That kid in one word? : AWESOME

8) If I choose a TV Character as a fighting partner, I would choose...

20 Dating app categories and how to get rid of them

Hy guys! 

We probably all have been on them or are still on them, Dating apps. Tinder, Badoo, Parship, Happn, Once,.... we all know them. But on those apps, there are a lot of people. And not all of them are the smooth talkers we would like to talk to. So, we had a fun time collecting these 20 categories of people we met on dating apps :). And, as an extra, a great way to get rid of them!

The DP-senders
Also known as the D*ck pic senders. Apparently it's a common thing on dating apps, guys who send a picture of junk to a girl. To this day, we still don't now why and if there are girls who do this too...

Now, if you want to get rid of those guys there is one simple way: SCREENSHOT & threaten them to share that picture on Social Media. 

After two questions, nothing in common
A friend of mine had the following experience: he was talking to a girl and she said to him (after they shared 2 questions) that it wouldn't work, they had nothing in common... Now, I'm not an expert but I'm pretty sure you can't know someon after two questions.

It's not required to get rid of you. If, however, you are experiencing someon who's (for instance) rude, you can use this trick yourself!

The Right-Swipes
People who like EVERYONE. I had a guy like this once. I was curious why he liked me. Turns out he just like everyone first, after the like he checked if they would match or not. 

You can't get rid of those people, they will get rid of you. But if you have the chance, try to make them feel worse about they way they work on a Dating app. Tell them this:

Celeb users
This is a category that isn't that frequent on Dating apps but it's also a hard one to spot. People who use pictures of celebrities are just wrong. But they are hard to spot if you don't know the celeb. I once encountered a guy who used a picture of Colton Haynes as his profile picture. First of all, Colton is gay (and recently married) and the guy used another name. 

How to get rid of them? At first don't like them...if you already have, call them out for a liar. #liarliarpantsonfire

Looking for some excitement too?
I'm sorry, what? = my standard reaction to these things. Guys have the bad habbit to think you're only on a dating app to have sex. I mean, come on. Really?


The sarcasts
Not someone who did this to me, but that's the category I put myself in. People who are just sarcastic. I had a guy once who didn't read my profile and asked me something stupid. I answerd with a very sarcastic line :p 

To get rid of them...meh, just read there profiles!!! 

The icebreakers & pick-up liners
Guys and gals who start conversations with senteces like: "hey, do you know how much a Polar Bear weighs?" or "Is there an airport nearby; or is that my heart taking off?"

either you like them or you don't. If not, A) ignore them B) answer with an emberassing/rude thing.

The cat & dog profiles
We get it, pictures of cute kittens and puppies are fun and very attractive. But if those are the only pictures with his/her name...

Ignore them. Kittens and pups are cute but everyone can put those on his/her profile.

Clearly did not read my profile
I just hate it when people ask me questions that are obiously answered in my profile. Seriously, read the profile first! 

How to get rid of them: Use the sarcastic way of answering! 

Trying to be funny
There are two ways of funny on Tinder. They guys that try to be funny...

The omg, look at me, I’m funny
And the guys who are funny but actually know they ARE funny. And overuse the fact they know how to make a joke.. or fifthy. 

Really, just ignore. They can be so annoying.

The doorkicker
Aka, the person that says what he's looking for from day one. 

Just make it clear: YES or NO is the only right respons.

The here’s what you’ll get...or not
Guys with a profile where you have no idea what you'll get. Is he even a guy? Nobody knows..
I mean... come on.

Just ignore. don't swipe.

Mommy’s little girl/boy
I once was talking with a guy who suddenly didn't answer. After a few minutes he said his mother came into his room and asked who he was talking to. 
I didn't answer & I didn't hear from him ever again. Pfieuw.

The “keeps on trying”
Hey how are you?
What are you doing?
Are you here?
How was your day?

Ending a text with an x can be cute when you know each other for a while. Not when you send your first message. THAT IS NOT DONE. srsly. NO.

The drunk texter
Guys & Gals who just don't make any sense, mostly because they're drunk.

ignore or send them a message the day after.

The macho/bad boy/loverboy
The guy who's just acting like he's good to be true. 

If you have the feeling he/sh's to good 

The over reacting/jealous type
When you don't answer within the next minute : watch out! They will think you're ignoring them, not interested in them, have someone else....

Really, avoid them. just act like you don't see those messages or make it clear you can't answer right away.

The stealer
The last category: people who steal lines from movies or other (known) dating lines that worked for other people.

Be real: just say that they have to be original, let them know you know they stole that line.
