Nowadays it’s easy to find and get everything we want and need We deliver foods , we shop oniline and we find a partner online. Thus Tinder and dating apps is hardly original back in the 1980s telephone bars, in that phone flirting precedes face-to-face interaction.
Here are three different dating types:
The OG of dating websites/app
The dating/ hookup apps
Meeting organically online websites
This is where you’re not actively seeking out a relationship or a random hookup you’re just using the internet and seeing what’s out there. You can meet anyone anywhere like Instagram and tumblr.
Monthly active users
Dating apps have given us to many options that it has killed the college and dating scene because it’s so easy to swipe left and right on a seemingly endless pile of partners, it’s harder to meet someone. It has gotten us spoiled for when it has gotten us to seeking a relationship. But today, sometimes people go on dating to finds friends from all over the world but also it depends on demographics on the way people behave. For example, back in the day, it used to be more common for people to stay in their hometown maybe you would marry your high school sweetheart at 18 and have a bunch of kids. That very uncommon today with a lot more people moving away from college and then moving to a big city you end up in a new place where you don’t know anybody You may not even have any mutual friends, how the heck are you going to meet people THE INTERNET BABY!! ❤✌💋
Why does people use dating app
Well, first of all, we are lonely and shy, and we don’t have the same social infrastructure that people used to and this applies to everything by making friends and trying to find a partner. I think people are more accessible online than in person so its the easiest way for us to do this.
Photos and Profiles
The problem with these apps is that they focus only on an aspect which is how we look. and it not only that it how we look at a photo. In an ideal world, we would hope that most people would pick the best of the most accurate photo of themselves but we don’t live an ideal world there are people literally posting 20-year-old photo of themselves, pretending that what they look like today.
Dating apps gives us *to many* options
At first, it’s amazing and exhilibrating but as you continue you get a little numb to it, you get bored. if you were in a bar, you would have an infinite number of people that you could say hi to but on dating apps it limitless you could sit on the day and swipe left and right and all night long.
How does dating app affect our self-esteem
I think if your getting a lot matches, a lot of complications and messages obvisously that a gonna be an ego-bost and it may, temporaily, lift your self-esteem. If your not getting many matches, not many replies, that could hurt your self-esteem.
And my last suggestion which may be…difficult is to maybe TRY and to meet people in person, just somehow not nesccarliy, but just like, chat up the local cutie in you coffee shop even if you are saying, ”Hey I like your shirt!”, it helps! it may help you gain confidence and remind yourself that you need to people in person.
