I went to Pinterest to find mommies with perfectly decorated living rooms and creative taste in costume jewelry, so a guy seemed like pure novelty.
He was a graphic designer based in NYC with more than 40,000 pins, and I prejudged from those pins that he was cool, and straight, and felt a little boost from knowing he picked up on what I was pinning. Consistent and generous, but still selective repins started to follow a pattern, and I felt like I was really getting to know him.
Now, I was opening my notifications with a tiny rush, and let me tell you, what he would send was spot on: Recipes I would totally try, even fashion-type stuff—sophisticated, sometimes foreign and obscure editorial spreads featuring unconventionally beautiful, very womanly models in artful vignettes, truly cool street style shots—that only served to confirm my hopes for this unreal relationship: this man would appreciate my cooking, is already acutely aware of my food tastes and wants to feed me, and would always appreciate, and be attracted to, my smart taste in clothing.
I know what you're thinking: I was becoming a little unhinged.
