Speaking of random online dating nonsense. One of the other messages in my inbox must have, certainly, set a record for the most egregious oversharing with a total stranger, ever.
I was informed, by this guy who seemed to want to go out with me (because why else would he be writing) that he’s a recovering addict, formerly homeless and struggling with mental illness.
None of this was in his profile. His profile was actually kind of cool. Amusing, even. But there, in his message to me, was a laundry list of everything that had gone wrong with his life in the past 20 years.
I’ve dated recovering addicts. And people who were struggling with mental health issues. Grown-ups sometimes have grown-up problems. But it’s probably not a good idea to go blurting them in onlinedatingland. Probably.
