“Dating is amazing and fun and it only gets easier as time goes on.” – Literally nobody in the history of ever.

It’s a real testament to the strength of our desire to pair off that we all continue to deal with the dating world despite kind of hating every minute of it. The hope, of course, is that the ends will justify the means but that in no way detracts from the fact that the struggle is real. At least we get some funny and bittersweet internet jokes about it, though. Maybe that’s the silver lining to this grey, panic-inducing cloud.
