I’m not sure where to start with Dude #24, but I guess they all kinda start the same…

He lived a little far away, but obviously we matched and started talking. He seemed sweet. We messaged for a bit on the app and eventually exchanged numbers.

He texted me every…

I get a lot of potential matches from people who live an hour or more away, so I was excited to match with Dude #23 in part because he lived close by. We had a nice chat, but he was scheduled to have surgery the next day. …

Dude #15 was one of my first connections made…

Where do I start to explain about Dude #14?

It’s a couple days before Christmas and I get “superswiped” by someone who’s current location is within my usual range, but lives in a different state. Not even an adjacent state. …
