I started using dating apps out of the loneliness of a life where I couldn't meet people.
It was always on sleepless nights that I opened the app.
I was looking for someone who could erase this loneliness.
Profiles with photos randomly appeared on the screen of my phone.
NO and LIKE, I swiped my finger left and right on a whim and matched up with someone.
I could see that that person had seen my profile and swiped in the same way.
There were nights when I could sleep just because of that.
This is a love story I may have experienced.
Dreaming of the person of my destiny, I send a message.
