I have some pretty exciting news for my devoted readers this week (lol). After I left Boston in the winter, I was going to head abroad and travel through Europe. But the coronavirus was becoming increasingly serious, and I decided it was best to stay in the states, where I am a legal citizen, until it all blows over.
So I’ve been hunkered down and staying home, writing my little heart out while we all work to flatten the curve.
The Airbnb I’m staying at came with a cat. Not really, but the cat was always meowing outside of my door, so I sort of adopted it while I’m staying here.
Since I’ve mostly been traveling alone, I decided to take this spare time I have and focus on catching up on emails and chatting with friends. I’ve been doing a lot of Zoom calls and Facetime calls with my friends from back home. Being able to reconnect with them instead of jetting off to the next big adventure has been really nice.
But this time alone with just the neighborhood cat also made me think about how much I wish I wasn’t alone. It would be really nice to have someone to travel with or be stuck in quarantine with…
That’s when I decided to give online dating a try. Quarantine is the best way to find a good guy, I’m telling you! You can tell which ones are actually interested in getting to know you and the ones who only care about having something casual very easily.
On that note, I think I may have met someone. No, not actually meeting because, ya know, quarantine. But there is this guy I’ve been talking to who could be everything I’ve dreamed of. I have a friend who is a Spartanburg car accident lawyer, and it turns out the guy I’m talking to is a mutual friend, so I have a feeling he’s a decent guy.
I’ve just found it so easy to talk to him, and we haven’t ran out of things to talk about. Every day is exciting now! Although this could all change once we’re finally able to meet in person, who knows. But we have facetimed already, so I know for sure that he isn’t a catfish.
Maybe he’ll become my traveling companion. Who knows what will happen. The possibilities are endless.
