Pro and cons of dating
Raise your hand if you’ve spent five minutes on Tinder and then your weird clock actually tells you that five hours have passed.Put your hand down, and recognize that your clock is not, in fact, broken.I have this problem whenever I try to buy a nice cheese. If there were three choices, I’d be like, cool, I found cheese. Practice the idea that you’re just meeting people to know if they qualify for second place, not for life partner status. The solution: Check the options on the service you’re using.The grocery store has a wall of them, and I really have no idea how to tell if I’m going to like a random one. People don’t write anything interesting, their photos are terrible and they don’t understand how to communicate. The solution: Not much you can do here besides suggesting some helpful tips to them, and they may freak out at you. They can often help you filter, block and report unsolicited/ egregious behavior.
The bottom line is if you view online dating as a way to introduce yourself to people you may not meet otherwise, it will always come out as a benefit. It has evolved from just a part of our personal and social lives, to a massive opportunity-turned industry for people of all ages. Gone are the days of twiddling your thumbs, waiting to find a way to ask the perfect guy/girl out on a date.We no longer have to anxiously text our best friends to set us up with someone new, and blindly test the waters. You can usually be very blunt about what you’re looking for when you’re communicating virtually with people (the last one might not go over so well).Having someone special to wake up next to each morning is something everyone is looking forward to, but with every good thing in life there are pros and cons.
No situation is entirely good or bad and neither is any relationship. No wondering who is going to ask me, who should I ask or who is going to be there, there is always a guaranteed person that is going to be right there by your side. We all have little quirks and gimmicks that are different from everyone else's.Thanks to the likes of Tinder, Bumble, Match, and (who knows what other? Chances are, they will either feel the same way, or you can “swipe left” and move on.
