Internet dating does not work
Dating apps are about as enjoyable as punching yourself in the head every day, hoping that you'll meet your next partner that way, and about as effective.If dating were a “numbers game”—if exposure to more people meant dating more people—then people would just go to the nearest concert venue, introduce themselves to as many people as they can, and magically end up with a date.
So, many people are familiar with the various apps and sites, which include Tinder, Bumble, OK Cupid, Plenty of Fish, Cove, and others. Tinder is 70 percent (a made-up stat) deciding if strangers are hot enough to risk getting murdered, 29 percent typing “hey,” and maybe 1 percent “meeting people.” Tinder is to meeting people as The Sims is to raising a family. Here are four reasons to break your dating app habit: A lot of people on Tinder will say they’re there because they “don’t have time to meet people,” but Tinder isn’t meeting people.Research shows that people who met online are more likely to break up in the first year and they are more likely to get divorced if they get married.So, I’m not making it up when I say online dating doesn’t work for a lot of people.(We haven't.)All you’re doing on Tinder—all anyone is doing on Tinder—is waiting out the time until they find a real life person they actually care about dating.
You can waste as much headspace as you want on the app, widen your search to 25 miles, up your age range to 72.
It doesn’t matter, because the second that girl on your rec soccer team breaks up with her douchey boyfriend and the two of you start hanging out, you’re going to stop responding to these strangers you’ve been struggling to carry on conversations with.
All you’ll have to show after four years of using Tinder is $239 in split appetizers with people who didn’t want to hear your theory on So, delete Tinder and sign up for the Mandarin lessons you’ve been meaning to take.
You may have convinced yourself you like your boss because he’s into Harry Potter and other common interests, but in reality you are attracted to him because women typically are attracted to men in power.
Because, if you think about it, you attracted to five of your co-workers who also have multiple common interests.
Dating apps are ruining your life—your dating life, at least.
