Digital Dating is Exhausting

For anyone who’s ever ventured into the world of online dating, the sheer plethora of options available is overwhelming. Traditional websites like Match, eHarmony, Zoosk, OkCupid and apps like Tinder, Bumble, or Hinge…where to even start?

Being a woman, I know I have an advantage in that it’s SO EASY for me to match with people on dating apps. Chances are that if choose to swipe right on someone, I am instantly greeted with the cheerful little pop-up proclaiming “IT’S A MATCH!” Next comes the most exhausting part though, the let down every time a conversation is started.

Em Lovz, America’s Dating Coach for Men, put together an article that really highlights so many of the things I see over and over and over and over….

I know personally, I’m not looking for perfection, that’s incredibly boring and usually false. You don’t have to be a male model, have a half-million-dollar salary, be a world traveler, or any other crazy expectations that so many men seem to think women have. Just be real, be imaginative, have a fucking personality that’s your own, and if you’re just looking and thinking about only sex save us both the time and just be upfront about that, preferably in a non-creepy way.

We’re all just looking for a little happiness in a dreary world I think.
