You find yourself in a relationship because you'd really like to pay less for rent
Or because you really want that summer share in the Hamptons. Or someone to call "babe" every Sunday morning at brunch at The Smith. Or literally any other wrong reason imaginable. That happens. All. The. Time.
Some dates just want to have random Tinder sex on the roof of a warehouse in Greenpoint
Or to take a magical ride on Jane’s Carousel, or reserve a table at that new restaurant, or hit the concert they’ve been wanting to see. Some people are dating purely for the stories, whether they know it or not.
Finding someone to date is wayyyyyy harder than it should be
There are so many damn people you would think it’d be easier, but it’s not. Maybe you’re a traditionalist and you still believe you can meet someone in Central Park... or at a happy hour... or at a museum... or, you know, in person at all. Good luck with that. Maybe you ask to be set up with a friend of a friend. Like, one that you haven’t already slept with. Again, I tip my hat to you, but this is increasingly not how it works here.
