Stories tragic internet dating
I heard the tiny ding of the notification on my phone when I realized he’d responded back, and positively, even enthusiastically.
It’s funny, still, when we look back on it and realize that we were both so nervous we almost didn’t go.
I also had some success — three boyfriends from online dating, but none were the one.
On my fortieth birthday, I was talking to my dad on the phone, lamenting about my single status and whining that I would probably be alone for the rest of my life.
