I didn’t want to go on a dating application, but it became increasingly harder to find a mate as I got older. You try to naturally strike up a conversation with someone of your interest at work, church, or social events, but you don’t have any luck. I had spent too many years complacently doing the same things and expecting weird results, so I broke down and downloaded more than one dating app on my phone. In my mind, I couldn’t be too disappointed if I kept my expectations lowered as well as didn’t know that I’d find the love of our life right away. I went on a handful of dates with good ladies who would make excellent friends, but we all admitted a mutual lack of chemistry. But when I finally met my modern partner Jenna, I was amazed by how much we shared right from the start. We were both originally from the same north midwestern state, worked in the same industry, played the same instruments, and also shared a like of cannabis and its variants. In the past I have struggled to find significant others who were okay with our cannabis use, let alone have any desire to partake in it with me. I respect that, however I’m not a huge fan of alcohol myself. It was clear to me years ago that I needed to find someone on the same page as I am, dating another marijuana user prevents those awkward moments when your partner judges you for enjoying a substance that they simply don’t understand. I’m good with a partner drinking responsibly even if I don’t drink myself.
