Bad things about internet dating
Millennials were 125% more likely to say they feel addicted to dating.Men were 97% more likely to feel addicted to dating than women, but 54% of women felt more burned out by the process."People who self-described as having really addictive-style behaviors toward the internet and cellphones scored much higher on depression and anxiety scales," said University of Illinois psychology professor Alejandro Lleras, who conducted a study in 2016 that linked technology addiction to anxiety and depression.Although the survey wasn't scientific, the results were revealing.Almost one in six singles (15%) reported feeling addicted to the online process of looking for a date.According to Tinder, the app generates 1.6 billion swipes per day, leading to 1.5 million dates (an average of one or two per user) a week.Hook-up culture on Tinder isn't what it used to be, either.
Sure, attraction is important, but the fact that your looks are the very first thing you’re judged on is ridiculous. The things people lie about online will easily be uncovered if you actually end up meeting in person.Online dating isn’t any better than meeting the old fashioned way, and the Internet actually tends to bring out the worst in people.
