Dating show based in alaska
I sold all of my furniture, quit my job, bought a car, and spent two months by myself on a cross-country road trip to Alaska.I assumed my romantic life in Alaska would continue the same way it had everywhere else I lived — sparse and unexciting.It was isolating at times, and I definitely listened to Grant Lee Buffalo’s “Happiness” on repeat in my driveway one night while crying into a large pizza for one, but when everyone you know lives 3,000 miles away, you can really amp up the dormant part of your hedonistic tendencies.There’s a saying about dating in Alaska: The odds are good, but the goods are odd.I quit college after a year and moved to California when I was 19; I met my first boyfriend at work, and we dated for three years.I worked too much to even consider dating when I moved back to New York, aside from a few great make-out sessions in the local Irish pub at closing time.In short turn, I soon realized that if I wanted to meet guys in Alaska, all I had to do was go outside.While it’s no longer true that there are more men than women in Alaska by a ratio of two-to-one, the skewed gender ratio might have played a small part in the fact that I was able to pull so much.
My lack of a high-school love life and the fact that I never saw any hometown dick makes it easy to go back to visit now, but at the time it made me feel ill-prepared for dating in the real world.

I found out he was cheating on me with a woman who did reiki, and I’ve never felt better about punching a man right in the face.
