This Grandpa Got Stood Up & The Internet Isn'T Having It
It is a truth universally acknowledged that online dating sucks. Of course, for some lucky people online dates can pay out in an actual happy, long-term relationship. To get there, though, you have to endure your fair share of awkward first dates or dates that just never show up.
It's a lesson one grandpa recently learned. Jim Moroney, who's 73-years-old, met a woman on Match.com, drove 45 minutes to meet her, and was stood up.
The man even wore his best sweater.
“I was dressed — a nice sweater on — and had a dozen roses and See’s Candies,” Moroney told BuzzFeed.
Most of them just want to "talk" to this woman.
But some are just having so. Many. Feelings.
After all, we can relate. But Jim isn't giving up, and neither should we.
“You know what, this is the way the dating scene is,” he told BuzzFeed. “I hope that I find someone truthful, loving, and that has compassion. I’m looking for that special woman.”
