I’m eager to know how the other half online dates.

26. You miss out on meeting a variety of failed artists, mostly male writers.
I used to think “dick pics” and casual encounters were only things that happened in politics or the oval office.

You don’t go on anymore first dates, that’s great. Yet you often catch yourself in moments of deep sorrow for those who do. You sense their pain in poorly-lit bars across the city like the phantom pains of a lost limb.
