There are still many people out there who are looking for someone to be with, either temporarily, or for the longer term, and whilst it seems to be extremely easy for some to find their loved one, for others, even with the increase in dating site usage, it still requires more time and effort.
However, Genevieve Blau, decided to change the fact that she was single. After being sick and tired of doing things by herself, and feeling awkward about doing things alone, she decided that she’d date her pink ‘Jansport’ rucksack. And with all these dates, she makes sure all her Instagram followers are kept up to date, by posting pictures with her rucksack.
It was after going out to dinner in a restaurant on her own that she got the idea, with her, at the time, just rucksack. It was after finishing off a few glasses of wine that she decided she’d have some more fun, rather than just sitting alone, and so asked the waiter to take a picture of her with her backpack, which she shared on Instagram.
Now, if you look up #jansportdate you’ll be able to see her collection of photos which she frequently shares of her date with her backpack. And this isn’t a short term thing either – they’ve been friends for around ten years now, and are only just starting to get serious. After ten years of friendship, she announced that they were going on their first official date.
They’ve done the kind of things that normal couples might do, and she’s uploaded pictures including her sipping a margharita with a straw pointing towards her rucksack.
The collection of photos are not to everyone’s taste, and many have described them as boring and bleak, but she explains that it’s not about that, but showing that you can have fun on your own if you want to.
And it’s definitely not like there’s a shortage of rucksacks out there if things start to turn south!
