8 Reasons To Get Off Of Dating Apps Right Fucking Now

Where do I even begin? Dating these days is so complicated, but if you’re on a dating app I’ve lost all respect for you. Dating apps are wrong for so many reasons and I promise if you try hard enough you can find a soulmate without the use of an app.  To try to persuade you to get off your damn phones I’ve made a list of 8 reasons to get off of dating apps:

Be social

God forbid you get out of the comfort of your room to socialize, I mean honestly people.  Go to the bars to find someone, or go on a double date with your friends, do not rely on your phone to match you with the man of your dreams.

Catfishing

Have you ever heard of catfishing before? Well it’s a thing and it’s relevant, so unless you want to get tricked into going on a date with a 55 year old man, or being featured on the show, I would suggest getting off dating apps immediately.

It’s casual

Most people on dating apps are looking for a one night stand or friends with benefits type deal, not a long-term thing.  If you’re looking for a lifetime relationship, don’t settle for one-night stand after one-night stand.  Get out and meet someone who will fulfill your needs.

It’s lazy

Once again we’re relying on technology to do the dirty work.  Why can’t we do anything for ourselves anymore? Think about it this way: if you’re on your phone waiting to find your soulmate, you’re going to miss all the cheesy romantic stuff that comes with finding the man of your dreams in real life.  You know what I’m talking about right? The locking of the eyes across a cafe, or when you drop something and you both reach for it at the same time kinda deal.  Movie crap, but cute crap.

It’ll make you self-conscious

After about the 7th or 8th guy you’ve gone on a date with from an app that has resulted in a one-night stand you’re going to become self-conscious.  You’re going to start wondering why no one wants to stay with you longtime, and if you got off the stupid dating apps you’d realize that’s your problem.

You’re being chosen based on your physical qualities

They look at a picture of you and swipe yes or no depending on if they think you’re attractive or not. That’s so degrading and ridiculous; honestly I’m embarrassed that you would subject yourself to that kind of judgement in the first place.  Next time you complain about what a shitty date you just went on you should probably realize it’s karma for judging who you want to date solely on their appearance.

Rejection is much more frequent

The amount of no’s pile up, and sure that means you’re probably getting closer to a yes, but your confidence is being beat down again and again. Don’t you think it’s time to give yourself a little break? You can only handle so much rejection, and the odds of getting rejected as many times as you do online in person is slim.

Goodbye Grammar and Social Skills

Ur constantly using txting language so when trying to write something actually important ur going to struggle a lot.  Not only is ur grammar suffering but social skills are going down the drain. How can you know how to connect with real people in the real world if all ur doing is txting creeps online?

Drop the dating apps and switch to communicating with people IRL I promise it’ll make a difference.
