It's funny to think about how dating has changed in that last 10 years so drastically. The idea of meeting someone IRL is almost preposterous and now our thumb or index finger has become our true arbiter of love. Online dating is a gruesome undertaking. It takes you on a rollercoaster quite like no other. The dopamine hit that you get from a match is unparalleled but the inevitable first ghosting you experience where you are filled with a sour feeling of violet rejection makes you want to roll up into a ball and watch reruns of Friends. To counteract how humdrum this undertaking is I've decided to create a memoir to document the highs and lows of the carnival ride of love. So as promised, here's date 1.
Working in a creative agency where the lines of office formalities are incredibly blurry and boundaries are non-existent, my dating life is on display for all to comment on and, for those spoken for, live vicariously through.
