As of yet I have failed to locate any of them or more so they have failed to locate me. However, I take comfort in the knowledge that everyone seems to be in my boat, well a few people seem to be. What I have come to realise over the years is that television shows and the movies set us up for failure. We have a greater chance of growing a turtle neck than walking across the road and falling in love at first sight with the person we “accidentally” knock into.
In reality what really happens is that you bump into them, they look you up and down, give you a dirty look and go on their merry way. We instead have to go on date after dodgy date until eventually we find the right person. Unfortunately I am yet to find that man but I’ve had my fair share of shocking dates and not-quite-right relationships during my search. In fact I think I’ve had around ten people’s share.
Luckily, according to the internet, there are quite a few others in my corner and these Tumblr posts flawlessly imitate all of our lives.

When we’ve found “the one” we’ll look back one day and laugh about our shoddy dating experiences Until then we’ll just sit on the sofa watching trash TV, crying and eating ice cream. Just kidding, we’ll go out and drink our troubles away. The latter is really the only sensible option, right.
