When we opened our marriage in 2019, I found myself back in the dating pool after a 17-year hiatus. The last time I dated was when I was 20 years old and in college. Internet dating was not a thing yet. Heck, smartphones weren’t a thing yet. Looking for a date involved talking to people in your classes, being set up by your friends, chatting someone up at a party, and generally face-to-face interaction before the date itself.
