Imagine this. It's Wednesday. You're enjoying your day. And then you hear it. The ding of one of your dating apps. And you're like - awesome! Someone messaged me back or messaged me first. Basically, you're excited because online dating isn't easy, and so progress is progress, right? Wrong.
Dating is hard. Dating isn't fun. It's supposed to be, but let's be real - it's not. The "first date" is the worst. Coffee? Drinks at a bar? A walk by the lake? Those are standard first dates. But they're the worst. At a coffee shop? Eventually your coffee gets cold or you've drank it too fast. At a bar? You hit the point where either you've nursed your drink, or you know you can't have another drink because you're about to embarrass yourself. And the walk by the lake? You can only tell your life story for so long.
