New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it.

I baked myself a cake and sent a text to my family telling them I was going to Red Robin for dinner and that they were welcome to join me. I told them a time. They were still late. This is why I didn’t want fancy plans. I didn’t want a party because I wanted to go to bed when I was ready to go to bed. I also didn’t want to send my daughter away because of an adult gathering. I wanted to celebrate with her. So we went to dinner and everyone came back to my house and had cake…and a few libations.

I did my usual rounds of birthday eatings. This always makes me happy. That trip to Red Robin was because of the free burger. Some of the perks changed this year. You have to download an app, or you no longer get a free meal, but instead you get a cookie. Some remained unchanged. See the previous birthday…
