So, the other night I was idly participating in the new mating ritual of mechanically swiping left and right, when this happened. "There's no one new around you."

Naturally, I sent the screenshot to a friend of mine who is also navigating the dating scene (albeit in NYC, where I doubt it's even possible to run out of matches). She and I regularly complain and share horror stories.

We had previously been discussing the finer points of vetting potential matches due to punctuation use, which led to the best way to end the conversation.
