Bored internet dating
“I’ve been online dating for a while and I’m tired of the endless messaging back and forth and having to come up with witty banter that never evolves into meeting up. That man walked five floors to return the banana peel and never left.
This narrative of charming happenstance is rapidly disappearing in the digital age where every interaction is curated in advance.
—but the most soul-sucking thing about online dating is how friggin' repetitive it is.
All men are not alike, but you'd never know it from most of the lame, cookie-cutter profiles in the virtual world.
Of course, if your goal is just a hookup, then you won't care if they're compatible overall, but if you're actually seeking a long term releationship, the initial slow period of email exchanges is a benefit.
It’s no mistake that in parallel to the isolating digital fortresses that we have built around ourselves, there is also a proliferation of festivals, dance parties and events where people gather, brush forearms and enjoy the presence of others.
