I know that this topic has probably been gone over enough lately but let’s talk about it. Dating in a world with smartphones and such is a horrible thing. Dating was bad to begin with but now it’s like Mariah Carey’s movie “Glitter” bad (yes, that is possible). You take one bad profile picture and your single for life. For those of you that are reading this and haven’t experienced dating lets break it down:
- Dating profiles are the worst thing to write: If you thought that writing an essay is bad, try having to sell yourself in a compelling way but not in a lot of word. It’s a legal way of prostitution without having to sell your body, unless you try to go that way.
- Profile Pictures says a lot: Your picture has to perfect because it’s usually the first thing people will see about you. So you have to look attractive. And if you are a guy, then people will expect you to have a picture of your abs or shirtless on there. It’s kinda of a thing to do that. This will lead to the next point
- Many people on there is shallow: Majority of times, they aren’t reading your profile. Like on Tinder, they are just judging you based on your profile picture. So they are judging you on your looks without having to read your profile. They are judging you based on your looks. They don’t even try to get to know you.
- People are usually looking for one thing: 9 time out of 10; they are looking for someone but it’s not anything long-term. They are looking for a hookup, or just simply sex. That’s right. There are people on there looking to get laid. It’s not all of them but it seems like most of them.
Now, I’m not saying that Dating in a world with smartphones is all a bad thing but it’s not the greatest thing in the world to do. Like everything in life, for every bad thing, there are good things that come out of it too. It does have some advantages like letting you to connect with people you normally wouldn’t be able to due to distance or locations. Dating is a horrible all of together.
