There is no fear of failure because for every one or two rejections you get one or two matches.
This is a game that you can keep playing until you win.
The game and time-saving efficient nature of online dating has become more important than actually finding a partner.
This is for all of you who have never been in a relationship before. Don’t get me wrong, I still love listening to love songs (which is basically every song), but I simply cannot relate to those who have had multiple relationships before.
Looking at my article How Technology is changing your love life excessive choice can have ramifications further down the line in terms of our attitudes towards not only our partners (expendability of our relationships) but also in terms the scale we seek validation, (the expectation and normalization of praise from many rather than just a few). Letamendi says in Time magazine, “Now that we can interact with hundreds – no thousands – of people simultaneously, we’ve strengthened the impact that others have on our self-value.”Not only is there a lack of vulnerability but the nature of ‘the game’ is similar to other games or indeed social media.
Every time we get a notification we get a little buzz of excitement.
As a youth, I would look forward to the weekend just so I could meet a new batch of ladies to attempt to woo.
With the arrival of dating apps there has been a change in how many of us are finding our partners and indeed what we are looking for. Tinder lets you search for single people in your area looking to meet for dating or any other activity you could care to mention.
I was watching this video in which a cross section of people, were asked to use Tinder to find people they would go on a date with.
What they found is that people’s response to their love life was much more optimistic once they had used Tinder.
This article focuses on how technology has changed dating. Mine met on a double blind date in which my mother and father had mutual friends who introduced them.
With the invention of social media it is difficult to imagine anyone going on a blind date again—why would they need to?
However, this can lead you to feel as if potential partners are expendable.
