Dating is hard.
Dating when you’re from a slightly conservative family where “just getting to know someone” is not a valid response is impossible.
And while I had never expected to get engaged so soon, I now cannot imagine myself dating once again. I’ve found the right person for me and I am happy to know we have a future together that we are constantly working for.
I met my fiance through an online dating website. I am not ashamed to share that and I don’t hide it. I wasn’t desperate but I was lonely and just wanted to talk to someone. But that’s another story for another day.
Anyway, because I’m sentimental like that, I kept my account as a reminder of where we were and what we had become.
I’m not active but occasionally I get messages from people who are taken by my profile (one I haven’t updated in 2 years). Like this:
Reading this message, I could only think, I’m so glad I’m out of the the dating game! But thank you stranger with the cat picture for the great laugh!
