I used to blog as the Devil. Then I was Tatiana. Now, I'm just me.

I'm Quitting Dating (Apps). Again.

It started innocently enough. I was away at a corporate retreat. It was after midnight, I was in a small meeting room that was transformed into our makeshift office. I was the only sober person in the room because I had a presentation to give at 10 the next morning.

This has two advantages: a) it lowers everyone’s expectations and b) on the rare occasion you do dress up for work, people worry you are interviewing for another job and treat you really nice for a couple of days.
