There is no one in your area. 

That was the abrupt notice I got when I patiently thumb-typed all of my details into the new video dating app: FILTEROFF.

GenX online dating: Self-consciously take a new selfie. Notice wrinkles and weird shit going on with your face that wasn’t there last time you looked. Earnestly compose a lighthearted profile to convey you’re funny and smart, if not all that cute anymore and not quite as desperate as you feel right now. 

Update, many months later at the time I’m prepping the 100 Portraits Book for publication: FilterOff enabled worldwide matching. I think because so many people were sheltering in place far from their normal locale. 

So I’m finally going to jump in the video dating pool. Where in the world is my GenX match hanging out these days?

 

This portrait is from the series, 100 Portraits in 100 Days: A Quarantine Diary by Lisa Sonora. 

What began as a creative challenge to focus my energies during the first weeks of solo quarantine in March 2020, evolved into a diary of my experience. 

These small, original portraits are painted on top pages cut and upcycled from my sketchbooks.
