Day 99

I met a guy

I was out with my tribe for a girls night on Saturday. One of my friends who’s been married since she was 19 was talking about how weird it would be to have to date again. I showed her just what’s out there...: pulled out my phone and fired up the dating app. Gross swipe left ... gross swipe left... gross swipe left... wait a second, cute, educated, wtf? I said hi, he said hi back. Next thing I knew she’d grabbed my phone and started chatting him up. A half hour later we’re in a different bar waiting for him to show.

He was cute, nice, funny, seemed interested. Holy crap!

The next day he deleted his profile.


I give up.

    I'm sorry that happened, Miranda. But at least this shows that cute, funny, smart guys exist!! Don't put down that fishing rod yet! Maybe just prop it somewhere and leave it be. Eventually the right fish will find it. ;) And I'm so glad you're hanging out with your tribe! Reminds me that I need to get mine together soon. Sometimes just being with your girls is the thing a soul needs most for a recharge. :) I hope you ladies had a blast!

    The online dating thing is weird, people seem interested then vanish or don't respond. It's like the chance of not still being able on the app is scary, they might miss out on "the one."
