In a relationship but still on dating sites
I wanted someone to invest their love in me for exactly the things that make me different.
For those looking for a simple standard, a dating app can provide you with a sea of able-bodied mates.
My personality, my humor, my empathy, even my snack-readiness, with no thumb-crafting involved.
We know humans crave connection—real, deep, meaningful connection.
Apps like Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Grindr, and others are the dater's tools of choice , and yet hating them is the one thing we can all agree on these days.
They're often more hazard than help, and the forced psychoanalysis of every picture and witty answer can shake even the most durable of confidences loose. Is it really possible to find true love with just your thumbs?
I set out on a journey to find out, and it starts with defining love itself. Like any muscle, it must be persistently worked on in order to grow.
And love for most people seems to emulate that—a laborious growing process.
So I chose to swipe dating apps right off my homescreen.If you try to game love, you can expect love to game you.Hookups and temporary flings can be easy to find on apps, but when deep connections keep evading you, it's not the app you question. It can chew on your confidence to the point where it's no longer raising your chances by widening the pool, it's hurting them by leaving you at half strength during the times that really matter.A symbiotic relationship where two people don't just grow together, but toward each other.But how do you decide on the person, the deciding factor of your success?
