After grad school, I once again found myself in a new place, knowing no one. And once again, I tried online dating. It was bumpy, to say the least. I met some decent guys that I maintain friendships with to this day, but very few of them clicked on a romantic level. I met plenty of duds, liars, manipulators, and deadbeats. By the time I was approaching 30, I was ready to give up.
I spent all my time pouring my heart out to my best friend, someone I had met online. Someone I had spent years talking to, but had never actually met in person. They wanted to meet, I thought it would ruin things. Finally, I realized that we were already more than friends, so why not just go on a date with the guy? That date... was my last first date ever. 15 months later we were married. I will never ever regret dating online, because I was lucky enough to meet Hubby that way.
In honor of those looking for love online, this week's playlist is some of my favorite songs to be featured in episodes of "Catfish". Listen to them, and appreciate the love you have in your life, regardless of how you found it.
