Since we clearly need all the help we can get, I resolve to investigate.
The first thing I learn is that it’s about as difficult to get a French person to admit to online dating as it is to get her to admit to knowing the names of the Kardashians.
This doesn’t only go for dating apps themselves, but also for people. Just because you’re messaging, or even texting, doesn’t mean that you’re in a relationship or even having “a thing.” Avoiding premature attachments also helps you keep your dating expectations low and any "what if? (That might include, but is not limited to: talking to your friends incessantly about dating or social media stalking your matches.), lol! No, "standards" do not mean "looks." Brown hair, tattoos, and likely to piss off my parents are not my dating standards. If your match isn’t meeting your standards in the messages, then move on. But avoid getting overtly sexual, or you could end up with an unwarranted dick pick from a psychopath. Only spend a few minutes a day swiping and responding to messages, and then put your phone away. They’re just another bored person on a dating app, looking for a way to kill some time.
Several right swipe matches in a row might give you satisfaction, but it won’t help you find an actual, supportive, dependable, loyal partner—if that’s what you’re really looking for. Pause to analyze pictures and read bios to figure out if the match could actually be right for you. Best to weed out the bad boys early.*Eye Roll* Yes, this one is obvious. Online dating used to stress me out because I wasn’t authentic in my profile or during my conversations, and I knew my matches would pick up on that during our first date. My profile photos were of me drinking in college, and I am now thirty years old…and sober. It’s better than finding you’re not compatible with your partner several months in. (I allow myself 10 minutes of Sweet Pea time every morning while drinking coffee.) This will also encourage your matches to move things offline ASAP. Suggest meeting in real life, and if they don’t take you up on your offer, it’s time to move on.
In fact, that's how my best friend met her soul mate, and now they live in an adorable duplex together in a part of town I can’t afford. Somehow with all those options at my fingertips, I’m still single.
I actually know several couples who found love in a hopeless place (online). So here are some ways to stay sane while using a dating app, because finding love is supposed to be happy and fun—and it be if you follow these moves. I recently looked at my phone and noticed that I had four dating apps downloaded in my desperate attempt to find love without ever having to leave the house.
I’ve been ghosted after so many first dates that it’s hard to to imagine ever having a successful second rendezvous, let alone a third. Plus, when you have the right tools, dating actually doesn’t have to be such a bummer. Once you change your approach and perspective, you’ll see dating apps as a blessing, not an exhausting curse.
I’ve messaged with countless people, only to have it lead nowhere. )But listen (LISTEN TO ME), although online dating can be frustrating, your future partner might be out there swiping for you, so you shouldn't give up.
“After a while you start noticing plenty of parallels,” she says.
With dating apps as our metaphorical free pass, we appear to be zipping through this dystopian carnival of love with our trademark extremism, only to be confronted by an ardent sense of nausea at the end of each ride.
As I watch my friend massacre her phone, my mind drifts to my rookie Tinder days, which coincide with my time living in Paris.
I’d agree during convos that I love dogs when in reality my last relationship ended because I’m deathly allergic to them. I, perpetual doormat and life-long people-pleaser, spend way too much of my time wondering if people like me. So when it comes to keeping online dating fun, sanity is the key to success.
In fact, someone can say something pretty off-putting, and my main concern is that my reaction to their inappropriateness is attractive. Make sure to switch your perspective to keep your sanity. Follow these tips to change your perspective, and next thing you know you could be living in a duplex in an expensive area with the love of your life you met off a dating app.
