Untold Stories of Isolation – Courtship

A friend texted me this yesterday:

You know who’s really gonna suffer during this social distancing?

Dudes on dating apps.

Welcome back to courtship.

Welcome back to talking to a gal for WEEKS prior to meeting.

We’re pen pals now.  We’re about to get a dose of Jane Austin in here.

Now let’s start with poetry! LOL

It made me laugh for sure.  Does it make you laugh?  It’s a little snarky, but after all the stories of what guys do on the dating apps and my own experiences, I think it’s a good reset.  While I don’t know how women portray themselves or what they do on dating apps (except my friends and me), I am not sure if this applies.

But please, let me know what you’re thinking…

    Love it- when I was doing lots of online dating, I absolutely made the guys write to me for at least two weeks before I’d even consider a coffee date… they gotta earn their time with me! 😉

    I have decided I will stay single.


  3. After my husband passed away I got talking to a guy who ended up being one of those catfish. I didn’t fall for any of his nonsense. I could tell that he was full of shit because he didn’t text in any sensible way. Anyhow, I did meet David on an app but that was purely by chance. I think the lying that goes on is so gross. Why not just tell the truth and find someone who really wants to be with “you”?!!
