Oh, Audrey Bath! First of all, I’m sorry that has happened to you multiple times! How horrifying!
Secondly, part of me feels bad that my stories might prevent you from dating and meeting new people.
On the other hand, my experiences are authentic and true. Austin does seem to be a bit worse than most towns, but, yes, I feel confident that you would encounter at least some of what I write about.
Online dating isn’t for everyone! And it might not be the right venue for you to meet new people.
I hope you aren’t discouraged from considering other avenues to meet new people, though!
Of course it’s TOTALLY alright to prefer the company of your dogs over dating, but they don’t have to be mutually exclusive. It’s possible to have dogs AND date! (I’m chuckling over here. Maybe you need to meet guys WHILE walking/interacting with your dog!)
Best wishes to you and my thanks for reading and supporting my writing!
