I’ll admit that during the first few weekends, I freaked out if I didn’t have plans with friends and was forced to sit alone at home on a Saturday.
But that was something I had to learn to cope with: being alone.
That’s what the dating apps were for me — a way to distract myself from being alone.
Because the more men I had in my life, no matter how fleeting they were, the more I was able to trick myself into feeling less alone.
My first flirtation with online dating was in early 2011 during my junior year of college. And by the time I turned 25, I was a full-blown online dating addict.
