Two minutes later, a 5’5” girl with brown hair and hazel eyes enters and the man approaches Sarah/Chrissy/Anna. This time, however, the two of them walk off hand-in-hand to order coffee from the barista. My guess? It’s their first date, and the guy confused me with the itsy-bitsy photo he’d seen on Sarah/Chrissy/Anna’s online profile.
I’m often told that I resemble so&so’s sister, a co-worker’s friend, or a stranger’s cousin. All the comments got me wondering: what does the average person look like? I did a Google search and found a project called Face of Tomorrow that documents what the average person looks like in every country. The artist hasn’t reached America yet, but I kinda look like a composite of girls from other countries (including Australia):
All the research on ‘the average person’ made me wonder if people present themselves differently on internet dating profiles. A little more digging and I learned, “fifty-three percent of American people surveyed said they lied in their online dating profiles.” And when it comes to photographs, “the more attractive the picture, the more likely it is to be out-of-date.” Interesting, right? No wonder people have trouble finding their date in a crowd.
That’s all I’ve got for online dating, but I’d love to hear from you: any tales from Match, Tinder or Hinge? Any stories that make you laugh or cringe?
My dinner club met last night, and we spent a good 20-minutes talking about how much we enjoy going to the movies. By the end of the meal, we decided to forgo August dinner and do brunch and a movie. I started making a list of August releases, and my top picks were Belle and What If. While I was watching trailers, a friend called asked if I wanted to see Boyhood in an hour. The movie got 99% positive reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, and so we spent the afternoon cozied up in the theater. Final verdict? See the film.
Do you go to the movies often? Is there anything you’d recommend seeing?
