Online dating has changed the way people seek relationships and meet someone. With the acquisition of technology, combined with two years of strict Covid-19 restrictions, this trend has only spread.
Tinder, one of the most popular dating apps, registered three billion swipes in one day during the peak of the lockdown. With such extreme usage of dating apps, people have experienced a new problem known as dating app fatigue or swipe fatigue.
All swipe and no meet became the new, uninvited trend. Dating apps noticed a spike in the length of conversations people are having here. With fewer meetings, fewer prospects, and limited opportunities to find what you’re looking for in these apps, a degree of frustration also lingers with the fatigue.
If you’re in the same boat, here are five ways to combat dating app fatigue:
Take a break
The most important factor that can make a difference is taking a break. Sweeping and stretching the effort to meet someone can be emotionally taxing. Relax your mind from the left and right swipes and take a break.
Avoid the failure of these apps
The success rates of these apps are based on an algorithm that does not pay attention to real situations, but to certain keywords and indicators. Measuring your worth based on how many matches and dates you can grab is something to be avoided.
Try new ways to meet people
Now that things are starting to normalize, you can meet new people in physical environments. Get out there or ask a friend to rip you off and break the monotony of swipes and taps.
Give yourself the space to figure out what you’re actually looking for instead of desperately hunting. Schedule meetings with people you think would be a good fit. And try not to rush things.
Lots of fun!
Last but not least, have fun with your experience on these platforms. Dating applications are only a medium, and obviously not the only one, to find possible options for a partner.
