Dating sucks and men suck and I don’t think that too many other women my age would disagree with me on that. I changed my Bumble profile today to say that we should be friends until we figure out what it is we’re both looking for. Because, let’s be honest, 99.9% of men on dating sites are not interested in this thing called a relationship. I think maybe we are living in an age where people don’t think relationships have capital so why invest? It’s the best I can deduce. Which is unfortunate because going deep with people is a beautiful, humbling, life changing thing. As one who’s had the same roommate for 12 years, this much I know.
In other news the 49ers Colin Kaepernick is a total courageous badass and, as much as I would like to try to understand the other side, I can’t even entertain that kind of ignorance. He is using his position and power and leveraging America’s sports obsession to say (yet again) that we continue to kill and oppress black and brown people and (yet again) there continues to be not a damn thing done about it. Because, apparently catching it on video is not enough and hearing story after story after story of the same shit happening everyday around the country is not enough. Colin, I salute you and kneel with you in spirit.
