Stupid Cupid

So, I gave in and joined OkCupid. Just like when I joined Tinder (which you can read about here) I did it mostly out of curiosity.

This is what I learned in those 7 days.

Waiting for the Phone to Ring

You've been checking your phone all day. You keep it within arm's reach and never let it leave your sight. You set it on the counter while cooking. You even take it with you to the bathroom. Every time you hear it go off you drop everything you are doing to see who it is. ...it's usually your mom. When it finally is that person you have been waiting for, your heart skips a beat and you get butterflies in your stomach.
