I tend to come to things late: Twitter, The Wire and puberty were all delayed arrivals into my life. And losing my virginity was no different. I rocked up to the University of Manchester in tragically chaste and sexually frustrated. By the middle of my first year, my turn had come. That was the end of that. But an awareness of my race, and a persistent bout of thrush, followed me through university and beyond. I had spent most of my teens avoiding thinking about my ethnicity; blending in and miracle boob growth were my principal wishes at that age. It began to crop up in my love life — such as the time I was asked whether my vagina was pink inside FYI, it is. The more I learned about racism and feminism, the smaller the pool of potential suitors became. While being thoughtful, funny, smart and able to put up with my unbearable flaws is a must, I became aware that my match also has to be serious about social justice to be my type on recycled, sustainably sourced paper.

Austin Dating Diary (ADD)
For those who do read my blog which from my WordPress stats I can tell is a very select few people I have not written on here for a while. I have been in a very different place to where I was when I wrote Identification. For now, let me write that it essentially boils down to being human. I have ups and downs; sometimes during those downs, I question why I even write this blog.
I question some of my experiences. Therefore I sometimes step away.

My Online Dating Diary
I go on a date every Thursday in an attempt to find the ONE…who will know to get me a gin and soda. I would love to read your sean spicer fanfic. I feel like this should be a red flag, but I kind of like how he still texted. I appreciate the honesty and remind myself to stop being a bougie-ass bitch. There are only two stools left bar-side when I arrive.
Tinder Diaries: A Single Guy Invests Recklessly In Almost Everyone. Everyone is different, and that is why dating is hard.
I am not usually comfortable in a bar by myself, but I had been in San Francisco for a week and the apartment I sublet had no chairs in it, just a bed and a couch. My friends in town were married or worked nights. One Tuesday I had lentil soup for supper standing up at the kitchen counter. After I finished, I moved to the couch in the empty living room and sat under the flat overhead light refreshing feeds on my laptop.
This was not a way to live. A man would go to a bar alone, I told myself. So I went to a bar alone.

March 24, Dear Dating Diary,. I was both excited and a bit nervous about my first virtual date with Avi, who lives across the river in Jersey City. I’d finally broadened my zip code boundaries and left the isle of Manhattan in search of a good prospect. Well, virtually left the island. These are bizarre waters to navigate. Neither of us had ever had a virtual date before.
Would it be weird, I wondered? Would there be awkward moments of silence? What would I wear?

I feel like I can’t remember how to date. What do I wear? How do I even greet him? Day Seven: D-Date. I’m already shaking and feeling extremely anxious, wondering why I ever agreed to this. I tell John I have a dinner later so I have an escape route should things go wrong. Dating he arrives, I kiss him on both cheeks and make a joke dating being French; it breaks the ice the tiniest bit. He’s shorter than I expected but at 5’4 I can’t online too much.
It’s all a bit awkward until he brings up that he’s new dating match too and we bond over the perils of online dating. We talk about music and family and conversation flows a little more. It’s clearly not love at dating sight but he’s a lovely guy and we get on well enough. Conversation starts to dwindle so I mention dinner and we get the bill.
