Another Quadrille


Night terror wakes me up hyped
Guess I’ll get out of bed and write
3am, type type type
Will I ever sleep tonight?

Dating app, swipe swipe swipe
Maybe I’ll find Mister Right?
Cute guy wants to meet on Skype
This upcoming Wednesday night

    This is great. From a terrifying reality in the first paragraph, you’ve moved to a much more hopeful one in the second.

  7. Skype dates? Is that a thing now? Even when I did online dating, I only spoke to the women by phone, and that was at a time when the Internet (and Skype) were totally mainstream!

    1. Haha, I’ve never personally gone on a Skype date, but I’m pretty sure the option to video chat is available from most dating services these days 🙂
