In a world of hookups and threesomes, where can a hopeless romantic find monogamy?
Dear Jake,I’m 32, and I’ve been single all my life. When Grindr first came on the scene and was an actual dating app, I downloaded it, and kept it even as it devolved into a hookup app, in the hopes that I might meet a nice guy. Eventually, I deleted it on my 30th birthday. My question is this: where/how do I meet a guy that wants a monogamous relationship? Admittedly, I’m not notably attractive enough to stand out in a crowd and catch someone’s eye, but there’s nothing strikingly off-putting about how I look. I’m okay with that because I feel like I’m an intelligent guy with a good sense of humor. I’m educated, I play piano, I speak multiple languages, I go to the theatre, I go to a weekly tango dance night (when we’re not in lockdown),
