“If you took a shit on a dinner plate, id eat it!”
At times, it feels like I’ve lost who I am. Dating without an identity is a lot of things, but most of all it’s boring. I end up talking about food I like.
You will never be able to tell who someone is based on your first impression of them whether it’s a profile, or a conversation at the bar. The common complaint about Tinder or online dating apps is that ‘everyone’s there to just looking to hook up’ or ‘they could be talking to other girls’, but the truth is the same concerns apply just as much to offline dating.
We’ve become so desperate that we can’t enjoy free time without constantly checking our online dating profiles to see who has responded and who has not. We are so scared of rejection IRL that we cower behind a username and a carefully filtered photo so that when we are rejected online we can delete the conversation like we delete an old document we no longer have any use for.
