That was a big grinner all the way through. This article is a lesson in online vulnerability that isn't cringe. Humor goes a long way in that department. Well done!

I’m always intrigued by the conflict between love marriages and arranged ones- on one extreme, we have these dating apps where we shop for people and get turned off by the slightest icks, and on the other side, two strangers can meet for two weeks, marry and have fulfilling marriages

Maybe you'll find a partner through your writing :O

When I write online, I'm surprised at some of the vulnerable and deep things I share. Writing allows the sharing of ideas that don't translate well to conversation or dating profiles lol.

Very entertaining! I’m kind of confused about the logistics of what you’re looking for though - is the hope that the guy will move to your town?

Loved this story and idea. reminded me of this tweet: https://twitter.com/heynibras/status/1620864075201941504?s=46&t=x6yTEMC8zE0-gjIT-fRwug

and after you get married in 2024, you can launch the rearranged marriage cohort course and community :)
