Why online dating is bs
You chose it over all of your other pictures to greet me, a total stranger. So what’s a gorgeous, fun-loving, free-spirited, Oscar Wilde-ian/Robin Williamsish catch like you doing up for grabs on the internetz? ”But in the last hour, you’ve probably scrolled past 14 people whom you can barely tell apart. You just want someone to tell you that you complete them. We’re so desperate for quality human interaction that we’ll even employ a machine to help us find it.They’re not caused by your partner and you are the only person that can change these traits.It also doesn’t mean your partner or the relationship has to be perfect.I can honestly say my life is a happier one without the constant and daily rejections, rude comments and anxieties that come with looking for love online.I might meet less men this way, but the ones I do meet feel meaningful right from the start and I’m confident that I’m still going to find love, even if I don’t look for it online.Nothing has been promising so far, but the number of opportunities in real life are just the same as anything I experienced online.

Or speculating as to why someone would’ve gotten tired of having sex with them. But you still keep reading those little personality boxes under the best-looking profile pictures. “You complete me” is simply a tear-evoking, make-us-weak-at-the-knees statement we would all love to hear coming from our man.
