Dating in the


The night of Adam: Without being sure what to expect, I was definitely nervous prior to the event.The prospect of packing a “date” into six-minute segments felt stressful enough even if it went well, let alone if it was going poorly.I now had to choose my top five picks of the night.

I feel like there’s a very relatable gray area between “I want to meet someone” and “I don’t want to deal with all this extra nonsense.”Sadé: I consider myself perpetually single.

My last official relationship ended a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2013 (I just pulled up some old emails to confirm the date, and I’m definitely saving them for my memoir) and I’ve dated here and there in the years since without falling in love or meeting anyone who left a significant impact on my life.

I’m used to it, despite the societal pressure that comes with being unmarried and childless at 32.

Like Jamila Woods sang, “I’m not lonely, I’m alone.

My results were also mixed: One of the women whom I wrote down – I thought we had a lovely conversation – left in the middle of the event, and I never heard from her as a match, so she clearly had a different experience both in our conversation and the event as a whole.
