Single and Quarantined

I ended a relationship at the beginning of the year and if that was any indication of the trajectory of 2020, then whew child...I saw it coming. So clearly, your girl wasn't going to be dating right away. After about 3-4 months, I was ready but the current situation was like HAHA YOU THOUGHT?!


What I wasn't about to do is let this little shelter in place stop me from dating. Sis is really cute in her quarantine head wraps and since I cut the hair a little more, the less and less the men care about this oxygen. Honestly, I consider the oxygen and the chronic illness a gatekeeper to me. If you're going to be with me, you have to be able to deal with all of me and love me with my illness. If you're not ready for that you're not for me.



So, I've been down to the good old dating apps child. I've narrowed myself down to Tinder and Bumble. I've even paid for the little memberships occasionally and I've met some cool people, crazy people, and some duds. I must say that I feel like the quarantine has driven more people onto the sites. I think it's good because more options but there's also more to weed through because some people are bored.


A good girl friend of mine recently found her bae on Facebook dating. I was like WHAT? FACEBOOK DATING. Like the dating portion of the application that Mark 'nem made. Like the one that was originally THE FACEBOOK. You mean the one where you used to need a college login. Let me go look.

I left right back out. FB dating ain't too hot near me. Maybe in the fall.


Have you been dating during quarantine?
