Oh my goodness! That is so awkward!

I was talking about it last week and he sat there nodding, he knew all about it and let me ramble on.

God it's so embarrassing. blush

He's only human.
And possibly single.
I say possible, because no guarantees on there.

I hate all the shame about online dating: it's only like going to a bar, but sober and so more rational.

I'm a counsellor and I'm on tinder! We are allowed sex lives too you know! wink

If you're worried it will impact on the work then discuss it with him in the next session, there's really no need for it to be an issue

What is it?

It's an app on your phone that can be for either dating or 'fun'.

Bizzarely if I didn't know him from the counsellor capacity I probably would have 'liked' him!

I've been wondering about counsellors/therapists and OD (but not tinder, I don't' really understand it tbh). I'm a therapist and OD myself and don't know who might have seen my profile. But it's a 'clean' one and I don't reveal anything I wouldn't in a RL situation IYSWIM.

Bit odd though if you have that other kind of relationship with the counsellor though, i agree.

Have you considered that he might not have heard of it until you talked about it, and then he went and checked it out?

Go out with him! That wouldn't be at all inappropriate wink x
