“the world (and social media especially) needs more of that.”

Okay, so I have a photo album on my Facebook page called “Soooo….THIS is Online Dating.”

Basically, I like to gather up the amusing things that have been said to me on dating sites.

Don’t fret — I’m very nice — I cut out any pictures, names, etc., so no one knows who it is.

Anyway, the other night, I was going through messages I had received, when I came across this one:

needed this


Needless to say, I cried. Happy tears. I needed that so, so badly.

To me, being told this was basically like someone grabbing me by the shoulders, shaking me, and saying, “Mariah, you are doing it! You are making a difference!”

Even if that difference is small as heck, I’ll take it.


So, thank you, dating site man. I am keeping this message for life. ♥️
