Dating apps, at their best, can connect you with people you'd never meet otherwise.
Coincidence or not, these dates have been more fun and exciting than meeting up with someone I was paired with digitally.
We forget, and I know I forgot, that meeting someone in person and mutually deciding to see each other again already means a connection worth exploring has been established.
Just because we have technology to find connections for us doesn't mean there aren't any in the real world waiting for us. My mother missed her original flight, gets on the next flight, sits next to my father and 29 years later, here I am today.
Since going cold turkey, I’ve been on a few dates with women I’ve met in the real world.
Those of you who've tried your hand with online dating know this to be true: every date has the potential to be absolutely terrible, regardless of how well you think it'll go based on the photos you've seen and the texts you've received.
