Well, I must have pushed some magic button on OKCupid. I am now getting profiles – thoughtful, well-composed profiles – of intelligent, spiritual, age-appropriate women. Most seem so energetic and outgoing that I doubt I would ever be able to keep up with them, but even so, it's refreshing to read one quirky, unique profile after another written by fascinating women.
And of course, not a goddamn one of them lives in Oklahoma. No, once I narrow the focus back to home, I get a bunch of doughy-faced, ineptly-tattooed Southern Baptist women looking for a bible-thumping Marlboro Man in a pickup truck, or riding a Harley-Davidson.
It is just bleak out there. Completely fucking bleak.
