A lurking romantic

I swiped right on a woman who was stunning but in a please-meet-my-parents way. Her bio mentioned she was a journalist (check) and a poli-sci major (check). She didn’t wear excessive makeup in her photos (check). She lives nearby (CHECK).

After I swiped right, I realized I was in love with her. I couldn’t go back and “see” her. So I Googled her thinking there was no way I could find her.

I found her. On LinkedIn, on Twitter, on Threads, and, finally, on Instagram.

I began to obsess.

I lamented my chances of ever actually meeting her.

I went back to the app and swiped right on fifteen other women as if our love had never happened.
