In all of modern human history, it would be difficult to find a group of adults more serendipitously insulated from contact with strangers than the Millennials. In , two years before the oldest Millennials were born, the disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz while he was walking to a school-bus stop by himself gave rise to the popular parenting philosophy that children should be taught never to talk to strangers. Seamless and food-delivery apps like it, which took most of the interactions with strangers out of ordering takeout food from restaurants, emerged in the mids. Today, Seamless entices new customers in New York City with ads in subway cars that emphasize that by using the service, you can get restaurant-quality meals without having to talk to anyone. Smartphones, introduced in the late s, helped fill the bored, aimless downtime or waiting-around time that might induce strangers to strike up a conversation. And in , when the oldest Millennials were in their early 30s, Tinder became available to smartphone users everywhere. Suddenly dates too or sex, or phone sex could be set up without so much as a single spoken word between two people who had never met.

I just got off the phone with a potential client. All of this sounds par for the course in terms of my regular clientele. Most people I work with are in the same predicament: divorced or widowed and looking to spend the rest of their lives with a loving partner. Such is life. Online dating can often feel like a full-time job, which is often why some clients decide to use my services. I can take the work out of the process for them so that all they have to do is go on the dates.

In the proudest moment of my quarantine, I built my own bike. Am I confident enough in the structural integrity of this bike to actually ride it? If I were quarantining with a boyfriend, would I have insisted that he step in to help around hour seven? Meanwhile, romantic cohabitators have ascended into the most heightened form of coupledom.

So, you take that very factual New Yorker mentality, and then add something that in a literal sense puts even more possibility at our fingertips, making our already numerous options grow exponentially? I even used to be optimistic. Moving to New York also coincided with the first time I had been single in more than half a decade. Could there actually be a chance? Probably not. For those of you who this metaphor is lost on, it took bobbing and weaving through 10 other kick-ass fighters waiting to TKO technical knockout!
