Quitting the dating game
I spent some time reflecting lately about it and it boiled down to just a simple and organic interaction I had with this pretty girl I had met while I was doing work at the local Starbucks the other day.
It started with a simple friendly conversation about what we were drinking, to our work, and eventually it drifted towards the topic of online dating.
There’s nothing wrong with taking time for you to just stop dating.
It’s quite frustrating really but other than some of those constraints I really had just thought about it for a moment, I managed to meet, flirt, and connect with this really pretty girl in a local Starbucks by simply getting out of my house and being social whereas on a dating app, she would most likely not give me the time of day due to a whole list of factors such as the thing I’ve mentioned above about being overwhelmed with matches and endless “heys” that she can’t get back to or just the superficial things about my dating profile such as the pictures not being high quality or interesting enough like Dan Bilzerian’s Instagram or even my bio not being cool enough or whatever.
So I’m going to give you a a few reasons followed by a challenge of why you should consider quitting online dating and dating apps: In a nutshell, nothing beats good old fashioned human interaction and human connection.
She eventually gave up on it and simply just vented to me about her frustrations about not being able to just have simple and spontaneous conversations like the one we were having and just organically meeting a guy.
I could empathize with her situation though for myself and even my students included, in the world of online dating its the polar opposite for men.
I can allude it to gambling really, it’s like pulling a slot machine.
