Poem about internet dating
Friends have told me about encountering first dates who wanted to talk dirty over artisanal sandwiches–or worse, people who don’t even know who Indiana Jones is. I also look for someone looking for me, though secretly I don’t believe I will find myself, and also I hold the belief that once you have found your missed connection, it is all downhill from there.
Yet even as we steel ourselves to deal with liars, ghosts and more ordinary romantic let-downs, many of us still entertain a wistful desire to believe in the possibility that love awaits us on the other side of the screen. I want to find faith in others looking for each other–and not just the “you bought me and my friends a drink at an anonymous bar” types, but, you know, something a little more romantic, or something uncanny in how, in a city of millions of characters, there is bound to be a story starting somewhere. I look every day, wondering if someone feels like I got away :) Oh well…we can’t all be the “cute hipster girl reading pride and prejudice and zombies on the G train.” But sometimes I’d like to think when I catch a guy stealing glances that the universe is setting up a moment that will ensure that I will stick in his mind for at least an hour ;) I agree with every word you said. How in a city, like you said, of millions can it be so difficult to holdonto that faith?
Your character decides to begin his / her journey by interviewing people who actively participate on Internet dating websites. It is far in the future and now everyone uses a sophisticated dating website or application that helps them locate their best match for this given moment in their life. In a rage, he or she writes a fake and ridiculous profile and begins writing messages to people purely for purposes of amusement.
However, during this process, something unexpected happens. Write a story that begins with your character about to meet someone for the first time that he or she met on a dating website. Write an inspirational story about a character who genuinely wants their friend to find a partner.
The messages continue for random reasons (the person is traveling out of town, in hospital, busy, etc.). Write a story about someone who is infatuated with someone they know in person.
Write a story about someone who begins writing deep and meaningful messages with someone from an online dating site.
It can also be surprisingly difficult to meet your potential soulmate in person.I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable with my advances, silent eyeballs or otherwise.I won’t let my eyes linger on a sheer shirt and black bra.I was not yet 30, in the process of completing a degree in poetry, newly single and living alone in a small Brooklyn studio apartment. I wasn’t just nursing my wounds; I was obsessing over them.
