Fun fact: I met my spouse before dating apps were popular, so I never had the experience of trying to seem Fun and Interesting in a dating profile.
For today’s prompt, write someone’s online dating profile … but keep it classy, okay?
Remember: These prompts are just starting points; you have the freedom to go wherever your flash of inspiration takes you.

- Is an excellent cook
- Loves to read
- Into running
- Rarely eats out because I was a waiter for one day and Saw Things
- Compulsively finishes reading a book even if I hate it, complaining loudly the entire time
- Fueled by anxiety, I use running as a way to avoid the crushing existential terror of the horrible darkness that awaits us all
Hope you swipe right, but won't be surprised if you don't.
