I thought I had deleted my OK Cupid long ago, until today I got an email asking me why I haven’t logged in for months. So I logged in to delete the thing, only to be greeted with 70+ messages. I’m going to show you my favourite ones before I delete that thing whilst gleefully clicking the box that I managed to fall in love with someone IRL and not THROUGH THE INTERNET (DISCLAIMER I...

White Hot Velvet: An Elegy →
whitehotvelvet: Last night, a girl named Milly Dionne killed herself. I’d never spoken to her, but she knew a lot of the people I know online. When I saw the post that she had passed away — and I’d just woken up, sitting under a fluorescent light, mid-fast, tired — my initial reaction was an eerie sensation that
Jonno looks at the camera. He is wearing a two-tone charcoal grey and black suit and a white shirt and a red tie with spots on. His shirt is blue but the collar is completely white. Underneath his jacket he is wearing dark red braces. He smiles realising he is on camera and displays the watch using both his hands to face it forward.

It was just me, Rifa, and Dr. Gowda. “We’ve tried lots of approaches”, said Dr. Gowda, “and you don’t seem to have responded to any of them”. They both looked at me like they were expecting me to say something insightful, but instead I looked down to my lap where I’d been kneading a tissue for...
