So I've decided to bust back onto the dating scene. Apparently being 31 and "still single" is a crime and I would say that, yes, my life is a bit boring as of late and it would be nice to get out and meet people.
So I was on OkCupid and without much success… So a friend told me to join Tinder. Now, what I had heard about Tinder in the past did make it seem like this was a site I really wanted to be on, however, after it was explained to me, it didn't seem have bad. So I joined. I have to say, it's been pretty fun. And I've met some great guys!
But this is what bothers me about dating in "this day and age"… You don't really date. You hang out, go for coffee, hook up, get together, but you don't really "date". It sucks!! I can't stand that sort of ambiguity right off the bat. Whenever I guy does use the word DATE, I automatically say yes. I think that is so awesome.
And I miss dating rituals as well. As much as the idea of "courtship" makes me cringe, it is sort of nice to think that a guy is making an effort and wooing you a little bit. I love getting cute little text messages and emails everyone once and awhile. But what I really wish would return is the love letter. There is something about having something in there writing, that is completely amazing to me. Plus, I just love getting letters, having them arrive in the mail with a stamp and a post mark. I don't know… There is just something romantic about letter writing in general that appeals to me.
So let us bring back the lost art of the love letter!!
