My most disappointing date was with a guy we'll call Josh*.

We seemed to hit it off and exchanged numbers after only chatting in the app for a few days. We both happened to be binge-watching and we bonded over our love of Asian cuisine.

There was one conversation, in particular, that was especially disappointing. You’re so pretty for a black girl.” I couldn’t decide what was more upsetting. Or was it how pleased he seemed to be with what he thought was a unique compliment?Instagram was already doing a great job of satisfying my millennial need for approval.
