In short, it’s fucked up.
Look, dating in this day and age is out of control. There’s no such thing as just meeting someone the “old fashioned way.” Nowadays everyone is meeting their significant other online, in DMs, and whatever the latest dating app is called. I am what you call an exception to the rule. Love and relationships are endangered. I’d much rather meet someone while I’m out as opposed to swiping right based on a picture. I find that there are so many more bad apples on the app than those that I meet in person.
Now granted, I know guys find it easier to approach a woman when the app is the middle ground. HOWEVER, am I the only one that thinks this is just an excuse for people not to have social skills? I mean really, its easy to be funny through texts and DMs but so many of ya’ll lack that same charisma in person.
Dating needs a makeover.
Ladies, how many times have you met a guy on an app, whether it be Tinder, Bumble, Ok Cupid, or whoever, get to the date and all you hears is crickets. It’s because your man ain’t got no social skills. I don’t get it. Technology can be the devil if you let it. Why should I have to entertain someone in my DMs because you don’t have the heart to approach my in person? Sounds real cowardly to me. Back in the day, you had to have character and charisma to get a girl, now all you need is a good one liner or a few jokes you found off google. No one has intimate personal conversations anymore, and it’s quite sad.
I’m enjoying the 00’s but I wish dating was more like the 90s. More personal, dudes actually care about you and want to get to know you. Now, its about, giving it up because that’s all they want and they barely remember your name. That shit is so wack.
