When cell phones first became a thing, text messages would lay dormant for hours. Now, that’s all changed. And here’s why it’s messing with us.
Using dating apps for casual sex may happen — and that's totally cool if that's what you're looking for — but it's certainly not the only thing people are doing on apps.
We tell ourselves that they're scared or lazy or that all this technology we're using is ruining us. But it may be a little more complicated than that.
That's right, in addition to traditional dating awkwardness and incompatibility, the technology age has ushered in a whole lot of annoyances and turn-offs that our parents and other generations never had to deal with.
So what can you do? I 100 percent think you should call them out on it.
Whether you're single, in a long-term relationship, or just curious, there are so many apps out there to help.
When your hand is cramping from all the swiping and your brain feels like mush from decoding every breadcrumb dropped, it's time to admit that you need a break.
When you're deciding whether you're attracted to someone, dating apps can mean we often don't give it more than two seconds to decide. Hell, probably even shorter.
You're so lost in the dating rollercoaster that you don't even notice that you're burned out.
It's hard enough to know what game they're playing, but what's even harder is figuring out how to deal with it.
