Postlets: January 2016

This post was originally going to be called “When Tinder Meets Bagel” but that would probably be too short. So I’ll include it with some other posts! yay

Online dating is on the rise, and so is the number of people who get married through it. But I wonder what the rate of successful marriages is. If people have a long-distance relationship with each other and they’ve only met through online dating, then the most interaction they have will just be through the internet. It’s pretty easy to put on a facade when you’re on the internet, and even if you’re meeting someone in person for a short period of time. What happens when they finally get married and live together? What happens when people start to show their true selves to each other? I’d be interested in seeing the statistics behind this.

I’m still concerned about my life passing by quickly (you can read my previous post to see what I was saying about that). It’s a feeling I can’t shake. January passed by faster than it ever has (I’ve come to realize that January goes by very quickly anyway).

You know how people say that you don’t realize what you’ve got until it’s gone? Yeah. I didn’t realize how much my life is spent on Youtube, but I came to this realization when I heard about the possibility of TotalBiscuit passing away. I tried to imagine the world and my life without him. I don’t think there’s anybody who can replace him and do what he’s done for the games industry, Youtube and for the internet in general. A few are similar, but none can match his witty combination of charm and cynicism. He’s seriously got a gift for that. He also makes really long videos that are interesting all the way through. Also a gift.

I wonder what will happen if he’s gone.
