I didn’t want to go on a dating application, but it became adjustingly 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 different results, so I broke down as well as downloaded many dating apps on my phone. In my mind, I couldn’t be too disappointed if I kept my expectations lowered and didn’t believe that I’d find the love of my life immediately. I went on a handful of dates with fantastic ladies who would make excellent friends, but we all admitted a mutual lack of chemistry. But when I finally met my current partner Jenna, I was amazed by how much all of us 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 an appreciation of cannabis and its variants. In the past I have struggled to find significant others who were okay with my cannabis use, let alone have any desire to partake in it with me. I respect that, 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, and 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 superb with a partner drinking responsibly even if I don’t drink myself.
