Once upon a time, I tried out my hand in online dating. I know I’m not exactly handsome myself but I thought: why not give it a shot? Maybe I have some redeeming qualities. But little did I know that it would be an eye-opening experience for me, one that would show me the sad realities of today’s romance and influence this eventual post.
I’m aware that a few of these situations could have somehow been saved – but as they say, hindsight is always perfect. We can’t turn back time anyway. A good number of you might say that it’s part of life, but I call bull on that. If there is someone destined for anyone as you claim, why is it easy for some but not for others? It may be easy for you, but have you considered putting yourself in the other person’s shoes?
I’ll let these stories from my Instagram tell you more. At the end of the day, some people just aren’t meant to win the game of love and I’m one of them.
True to form, I dropped all dating apps in early 2020 – before the pandemic struck. Now that I look back at these, I laugh at myself for even believing that this works. I definitely fell for a scam, but at least I picked up something from it.
Let me end this post with the infamous Australian bush ranger Ned Kelly’s last words (albeit disputed), before he was hanged: Ah well, I suppose it has come to this. Such is life.
Until the next post.
