Julie and I met over coffee and had a lengthy interview. Dates that made me cringe in the moment—and then continue to cringe for days afterward.I was tired of dipping my toe into the miasma of online dating.And the fact that clients have to pay bodes well; it means they are serious about meeting someone. If online dating has underscored anything, it's that we're maybe too much of an aesthetically-driven society. My second date came six months later, in July of last year—certainly a longer time to wait than if you're using an app. But ultimately I decided that dating isn't necessarily ordering a person out of a catalogue. We didn't make immediate plans—I wanted things to percolate.The matchmaker's rules are also very clear: She gives your contact information to the guy and it's up to him to make the first move and connect. Interestingly, you don't see photos of prospective dates before meeting in person. Swiping left and right based on a picture means, of course, you're missing out on the surprises—the people you may not have a knee-jerk physical reaction to but are more of a slow burn. But I knew I was signing up for a slower-moving (and ideally more effective) process. Life, and finding a true partnership, doesn't work that way. We texted a few times, and then he asked me out again.
