Here, I not only had someone doing all those things, but celebrating it without my nudging. He soon took it to the next level by sending me pins, which, besides repinning someone's pin, or simply clicking the heart button to like it, is one of the options you are faced with when you click on a pin in your feed.
I'd done it only a handful of times—a black bedroom to a friend pondering colors for her dated guest room, a litter of Bernese Mountain Dogs for another friend awaiting her puppy's arrival from the breeder, that kind of thing.
Sure, I was succumbing to this phenomenon by hinging my mood on what this stranger was doing, but as always with these ambiguous interactions, I strongly believed that it couldn't mean nothing. While all of social media fulfills that weird need to a certain extent, allowing us to posture an embellished life for the approval of others, this connection—with a man, over things like throw pillows—was defying that clichéd dynamic at the heart of many heterosexual relationships: I want you to want to pick out paint colors.
I want you to appreciate my knack for mixing patterns. I want something that is important to me to be important to you, or at least, not totally unimportant.
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.
Unfortunately, finding a partner later in life can be challenging.Photo: Graphic By Jen Baumgardner I have a Pinterest soulmate.Well, I have two Pinterest soulmates if you count my sister, so let me rephrase.Many of the difficulties that we face when approaching love are based on expectations that love ought to be the same as it was during middle-age.Instead, it is important for older people to define new and authentic modes of intimacy and sexuality, so knowing where to find potential partners is important, and is, interestingly, more accessible than ever before for today’s aging population.
