Thoughts on internet dating
When I got home later that night—his number written on a cocktail napkin in my purse—I checked my Instagram to find that Mr. As in, he had taken the time to scroll back through at least most of my 850 photos and "liked" a handful of my finest work—or more accurately, my finest selfies.
So I did what any interested girl would do and scrolled through his feed, too.
Because of the Internet, however, you and I are no longer relegated by proximity.
We’re no longer forced to engage in pointless small talk in an effort to uncover a morsel of commonality.
While I only offered one Deep Like in return, I enjoyed the window into my new prospect.
By the time we went on our first date a few days later, I already knew he enjoyed sailing, camping, and motorcycles.
Most of my newfound relationships have two things in common: we met because of the Internet, and we see the world through similar lenses.
While the identity of the mystery man is unknown, Buzzfeed News and other internet onlookers theorized that he could be the ex-boyfriend of Naomi Campbell.
Considering the two women were rumored to have beef after Rih unfollowed Campbell on Instagram in May, them sharing a man could certainly explain animosity between the two.
