The platforms I used were Ok Cupid and Bumble, so you will have to translate to your favorite online dating platform.
I’m not including any safety-related tips because more than enough of that kind of advice already exists for straight women.
Luckily, I already had the quarter-life crisis when I graduated and was like “what the fuck do I do with my life? However, there’s a new crisis that happens when you hit the big 2-5 and you’re yet to find a husband.
OK, so if, like me, you’ve heard all about how men are programmed to “cheat” by nature and women are the homemakers who are programmed to stay at home with one man and the kids, then you may be interested in this little bit of information, which I’d like to file deeply in the WTF pile.
