I’ve missed reading your stories, Bonnie! Yes to all, but I’m particularly allergic to the phrase “I don’t take myself too seriously.” Cannot stand this one bit. What does that even mean? And of course, most of the dudes who said this always have a shot glass in one hand and a bunch of other “bros” surrounding them. At this point, online dating seems like “okay, whatever”.
I experienced a real-life crush for the first time in years recently. It reminds me how great it is to meet someone organically and develop feelings naturally. (Unfortunately there is no followup opportunity for this one)
