Eventually, I'd get fed up with the banality of it all, hide my profile or delete the app.
It has generally been rote and fruitless, with occasional flurries of excitement, but for someone who makes their living with words, I've had a weirdly difficult time wooing dudes with them.

Reminder: Students have early release on Wednesday, November 1st.
Districts that were located in the disaster area for Hurricane Harvey have been notified that during the month of September, all students will receive free reimbursable breakfast and lunch meals.
Parents who have already paid for reimbursable meals during the month of September will have that amount credited to their account.
There was the ex who brutally dumped me but wouldn't stop emailing me for months, whose presence at dorky work gatherings made me dizzy; the sociopathic film critic whose shoulder I virtually cried on; the go-nowhere first dates; and the great, wide swaths of time spent single, usually pining after some unavailable director or writer who'd relish my attention and nothing else. There were a few things that sent me into a panic about turning 40, but the biggest — looming larger than the golden ring of a book deal or a staff job or, like, finally going back to yoga — was what it meant for me to still be single and actively looking for a partner at that age. If you're not familiar with the exciting world of online dating, sites and apps let you set search parameters that range from location to body type to education and, yes, age range.
Not so much even that I was single, but that I and what that implied. There are plenty of things I simply do not give a single solitary fuck about when it comes to what women my age are supposed to be doing. Just as there are movies on Netflix you might never stumble across in your bleary-eyed scrolling, there are plenty of people you might never see through some whim of programming code.This Saturday night at the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Performing Arts Center, five ballet folklórico groups will perform in celebration of Diez y Seis.Tickets are .00 in advance at bisdtx.org/pac or .00 at the door. Groups performing include Cedar Creek High School, Stony Point High School, Austin High School, Del Valle High School, and Guzman Ballet Folklórico.(And love, ideally.) If it weren't for the algorithms, I could meet all of these people IRL and they wouldn't know I was 40 unless I showed them my birth certificate — ah, the very idea made me irate.How dare they reject me before I could reject them! Whether they were the ancient ads I helped beta test as an intern or the old standby OKCupid, I'd invest time and energy into meeting men I wouldn't otherwise come across in my day-to-day life (read: freelancing at home, usually pantless).We are in the process of identifying those accounts and working with our food service provider to ensure that all accounts are properly credited.
