I was talking to a group of my girlfriends the other day and the topic of dating came up. These women were deleting their dating apps because they were tired. Curious to find out if anyone else had hit a wall in their online search for love, I polled a selection of singles who were actively dating and learned that all of them had deleted their dating apps recently, and most commonly, have deleted and reactivated their apps over and over again.
The reason for deleting their dating apps all seemed to boil down to either time consuming, frustrating, or boring. I usually delete Tinder because I get no messages or matches. And I really have no time for mindless small talk and flaky people. I mean, there is soooo much small talk. Which gets repetitive, and then gets boring. I think after a while the disappointment gets exhausting — whether it be from a bunch of dates with no real connection or guys not messaging back or what. Online dating is also just time-consuming.
I get frustrated and give up. Chat conversations fizzled quickly if they began at all. Conversations often ended as soon as I recommended meeting for a drink or coffee. Are dating apps actually helping people date, or is it just a way to casually scroll through images of strangers while wasting a couple hours of your day? Online dating is perceived as being efficient, easy, and fun. Key word, perceived, because online dating is actually hurting our offline dating lives. Texting and ing removes all of the social cues, facial expressions, and spontaneity of being in person.
Amy Van Doran, a match-maker and creator of Modern Love club , put it another way. I am rarely happy behind a screen, and the way to attract your best match is to be in a place where you are your highest self. But why do we get dating app fatigue and not regular dating fatigue? We will swipe left ad nauseam until we find someone who checks all our boxes because we assume we will find this person since it appears as if we have unlimited options. Imagine living in a small town without as many dating prospects. The fear of missing out. Online dating is pushing a giant boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down again.
THAT is why you are tired of online dating. Madison Vanderberg Updated Apr 26, pm. FB Tweet More. Credit: Paramount. They had reached online dating fatigue. Credit: HelloGiggles. All rights reserved. Close this dialog window View image.Tired of dating websites
