Dating is difficult when you aren’t 100% sure what you’re looking for in a long term partner.
I remember scanning through hundreds of profiles and wondering if I could manage to find the right person when I didn’t know where to start. Thankfully I ended up matching with a wonderful woman named Rachel. We share many of the same interests in movies, books, and music. Not to mention, we attended the same college but were just a few years apart in age so we never ran into one another. However, we had some of the same professors over the years and it was really nice talking to someone who understood the student culture there and remembered some of the other major campus events. At times it feels like we’ve known each other for much longer simply because of the sheer number of shared interests and demographics between the two of us. I’m also really grateful that like me, Rachel also prefers cannabis over alcohol. Since there are so many barely-functioning alcoholics in my family from each generation, I have a strong bias against alcohol that others rarely share. Rachel has the same issue with alcohol in her family as well. She started using marijuana at 18 and never looked back. We both have our medical marijuana cards in the state and shop at the cannabis dispensary with one another. I love Rachel and hope that our relationship lasts. I could really see being with her for the long term, even if that means marriage. She also likes many of the same marijuana strains as I do, such as Skywalker OG and Blue Dream.
