Bloke helps his wife find people to ‘make connections’ with on dating apps
| Last updated
Some couples watch series together, some go out to eat, and one husband and wife spend their time together searching for guys for the woman to hook up with.
Everyone's relationship is different, after all.
You definitely have to be on board with an open relationship to allow your partner to see other people, and husband Mitch has proved just how comfortable he is by helping his wife, Alexandra Le Tissier, find new matches on dating apps.
Alexandra, an OnlyFans model who goes by Alex, has been in a monogamous relationship with Mitch for more than a decade, but she decided she wanted to start dating other men when monogamy became 'a little bit boring'.
She's made it clear that she's still very much in love with Mitch, and has described herself as the 'luckiest wife in the world' after he agreed that she could download a dating app and make new connections.
"He's pretty open-minded. He's not judging in any way, so he's absolutely fine with it," Alex said.
"The only rule we have is that it can only be for fun. It can't be anything serious. It's really not interested in doing it himself, which is really funny to me."
Alex decided on Bumble as her dating app of choice because it allows women to make the first move, though it's taken some getting used to.
"I did accidentally swipe away like a barrister and I was absolutely gutted. I was like, 'No!'," she explained.
The OnlyFans model has admitted she can be 'really strict' on who she matches with, so much so that she's not even had a chance to go through all her options yet.
"I have been culling people depending on like their hairline and old they are. So it's been quite a fun experience," she said. "I think a few people have tweaked onto who I am from OnlyFans, and some people have paid to super swipe me to get my attention."
Mitch has been helping her out to find the right guys though, as Alex wants any potential new man to have her husband's approval.
"I did actually let him swipe for me. It was funny. He knows my type - I like geeky guys," she said.
Though Alex hasn't yet been on a date with any of her Bumble matches, she's excited at the prospect of dating a new man and hopes to be able to speak to someone for a few weeks before she meets them face to face.
Though Alex and Mitch are both happy with the new direction their relationship has taken, the couple have received some backlash after Alex posted about her dating app experience on Twitter.
Some people even went as far as to contact Mitch after seeing Alex's post, convinced she'd joined Bumble without speaking to him.
"It's just really funny that people think that I would just do it without letting him know - and then post it on my Twitter. People are weird," she said. "I just think that was a bit shady."
Looking ahead, Alex thinks her love life is going to be 'a lot more fun' when it involves more people, though she's glad that the use of dating apps has allowed her and Mitch to grow closer as a couple.
