So, remember a few months back when I asked GT whether or not I should join OKCupid? I’d just like to thank everyone who encouraged me.

I’m pretty sure it was just pure luck that my experience was almost entirely positive. I didn’t get any super gross messages or dick pics. I only actually ended up meeting two guys in person — the first I didn’t have romantic chemistry with but hit it off with right away and he’s now a valued friend. The second... well, we became official by the end of the second date.

As some of you may know, I’ve never been in a relationship before, and I kind of still can’t believe it’s real. I was so used to being permanently single that it’s hard to wrap my head around the idea of ME in a relationship. I’m having a ton of insecurities and anxieties and am super awkward about everything, but he’s being very sweet and patient with me.

Anyway... I just thought I’d update you guys. Everything is going really well — we’re both kind of amazed at how comfortable we are with each other already. I didn’t really expect this to happen, and I especially didn’t expect to find someone this easily. So, again, thank you to all who encouraged me. I’m so glad I went ahead and did it despite all the horror stories I’ve heard.
