Where is the Love…

Lately I have asked myself this very question. Where is the love?  It seems we have all become so desensitized to commitment. So what about love? In today’s society love can be found by the second just by logging on and swiping right . How are we supposed to meet and build a relationship when most people are looking for their love in all the wrong places.  Even when you do meet someone chances are they’re on the phone while you are together swiping left or right.

With dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Happn, Her, ect. There’s no shame, just a steady stream of swipes. It has become more of a looking event; that is just looking at pictures more then actually meeting people the old-fashioned way.  Even when you do meet someone organically chances are they’re on their phone while you are together swiping left or right . Dating apps offer convenience and we have become a convenience driving society. With sites like sitchfix.com we can’t even pick our own clothes anymore, there’s a site for that too. But for most of us who have become sick of dickpics and first dates that go nowhere. We crave chemistry. That feeling of butterflies that you can only get by meeting someone IRL.

I have noticed that most of my friends and myself included have the most success by meeting people the old-fashioned way. IRL through friends or co-workers or god-forbid our parents or family. If you have swiped left or right enough to get carpal tunnel maybe its time to try the good old fashioned way.

Get introduced, go on that blind date that your friend has been trying to set up for you. While there is no wrong way to meet someone maybe going back to the good old fashioned way of IRL meetings isn’t such a bad idea. We have become such an app driven society that even meeting people in everyday life has become a convenience. So next time you find yourself in that shared Uber strike up a conversation. What do you have to lose? It can’t be worse than an app, and you never know, you may end up actually meeting someone you can have a real life conversion with and maybe something more you just have to be open .

Online Dating Infographic…

Some interesting statistics. In the world of online dating. Dating statistics offer very clear evidence that the digital dating trend is still on the rise. The real question remains however: “Does online dating really work?

The best way to answer this question is to take a broad look at online dating statistics and see how successful others have been in beginning romantic relationships online. Personally I would take meeting organically or by chance any day over online..but that is just me I need to have a chemistry immediately that online dating can  never give me.  I do not know anyone who has anything good to say about online dating. Both men and women say it is just for the hook-up. I think when online dating 1st became popular around 7-10 years ago, it was taken much more seriously than it is today. Now it is just a free for all of sex freaks and guys and some girls looking for a booty call. This seems to be everyone who I ask about it who has actually done it. Some of them say I had to just get off of it for awhile. Like it’s an addiction which I think it can be.  What are your thoughts on this topic?
