The OkCupid Chronicles: Volume Two
Volume Two: Online dating is teaching me about maps
Now, geography was never my strong suit. My friends tend to despair at my inability to find anything on an empty map of Great Britain (Except Cardiff. I can always find Cardiff). Despite these geographical failings, I thought I had a fairly good understanding of how this whole “distance” thing works. At the moment, if it’s outside of the Oyster card zones, it’s too damn far.
Although, bearing my geographical history, my assessment of what is too far may be questionable:
Come on guys! I’m not making ridiculous demands here.
At least this lovely gent gets it. (FINALLY! I knew reasonable men existed on this site somewhere). Also, this is the reason I try and reply to as many messages as possible. After all, even if all you can see are their OKCupid profiles, these guys are still real people.
I’m of the view that you can’t spend TOO long chatting online before you meet. A binge of the show “Catfish” has definitely reinforced this.
However, this fine gentleman seems to insist that I am in fact, wrong.
Side-note: how humble are you actually when you say you’re hilarious?
Definitely not a fan of someone man-splaining how a long distance online relationship works. Christ almighty, just because I don’t agree with your assessment of things doesn’t mean I don’t comprehend the concept. It’s just not for me.
I’m going to Cardiff.
