I hate dating apps.
I’m sorry. I can’t help it.
I feel like I’m a cat putting myself up for adoption on PetFinder… while simultaneously looking for a cat of my own to adopt.
And with that being established, I am now finally ready to put myself out there in the real world and take all the relationship gurus’ advice on how to show you’re interested in a guy by smiling at him (a concept I truly could not grasp) but now I can’t smile due to these stupid masks!
What the flippity dippity am I supposed to do now?!
I either sit online and allow random men to judge me from a photo and a paragraph limited to 100 characters about “my perfect date,” while simultaneously judging them as well and feeling like a brat.
I can scare away attractive men I see in Costco by starring at them like a lunatic before realizing he can’t see my smile behind my mask!
Someone. Anyone. Please.
How do I do this.. this.. dating, “hey I don’t know you but you’re cute and I want to get to know you”…thing???
At this point, it’s going to take a true miracle from God to place my future husband in my life because COVID is not doing any favors for my “stay at home and take a nap” or “hike miles into the mountains where no one can find you” tendencies.
Add being Catholic and desiring a truly Godly man who knows how to submit in order to lead to the mix and I feel like I’m looking for a needle in a haystack.
Is there anyone out there who will love me and find me in a dusty, sunlight corner in a bookstore, as all soulmates do?
