I have learned about spearfishing and Oceanic art, about life in the merchant marines and urbanism in late antiquity.I have learned how to sext, how to plant tomatoes, how to drink mate, beat box, and navigate the bars of Bushwick.I would hardly suggest I lead a life to rival Cendrars’ own (my two cats have seen to that), but I had adventures.And as for those ghosters, they have their purpose too.I have spent a summer dog-sitting in Los Angeles and flown to Jamaica for a third date; licked cocaine off car keys and undressed at midnight in a Barcelona square.I’ve had my air- conditioner stolen, inherited an Eames chair, expanded my music library a hundredfold, and made a dear friend, who, now that our fledging romance has failed, will be with me for life.

Later we decamped to his apartment, a flimsy, spartan place that nevertheless held the most exquisite furniture, tables he had inlaid with ash and birch and varnished till they gleamed.In the surreal weeks and months that followed, I grew increasingly apprehensive about the idea of online dating.I hadn’t been single in nearly a decade; I didn’t even have Facebook, let alone a stockpile of profile pictures or an irrepressible texting game.We are members of the Online Dating Association and market-leaders in data security and fraud prevention. When I was in my early 30s, my husband of four years, partner of nine, left abruptly in the middle of the night.
