You've probably seen the commercials for popular online dating sites that claim they can help you find your "perfect match. You can fill out a profile, answer some questions and get matched with other compatible singles -- all from the comfort of your own living room. Dating sites certainly help some individuals find loving, happy relationships. There are disadvantages and pitfalls of online dating to consider as well.
Dating apps- the future of relationships or the devil's work? Pros and cons
Digital dating can do a number on your mental health. Luckily, there's a silver lining. If swiping through hundreds of faces while superficially judging selfies in a microsecond, feeling all the awkwardness of your teen years while hugging a stranger you met on the Internet, and getting ghosted via text after seemingly successful dates all leave you feeling like shit, you're not alone. In fact, it's been scientifically shown that online dating actually wrecks your self-esteem.
Finding the perfect partner in life is a big challenge. At some point, especially when getting older, regardless of gender, it becomes difficult for you to reveal your soul. Whether because of unsuccessful relationships and big disappointments or because the more you age in time, the more requirements you have, starting a relationship is difficult.
Tinder, the dating app is used by more than 50 million people worldwide. It is basically a kind of a mixed bag. Its algorithm produces potential matches via location and then you choose to accept the match or not by swiping right or left respectively. Many people use it and some has also claimed that they have actually found true love in that app. It is also fun to use.
