Breakfast Babble: ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.

Hi, how are you? What do you do? Where do you stay? What are your hobbies? What are you looking for? These banal questions can mentally wear you out sometimes. While dating apps have made it easier for you to “find your soulmate”, they can also take a toll on your mental health.

Be it Tinder, Bumble, Happn, OkCupid, or anything else, these dating apps are all the same. Swiping, talking, going on dates, and then either ghosting or being ghosted: this cycle continues till you finally give up on online dating. 

The hours and hours of scrolling, stuck in the act of constant right swipes and matches—all dating apps follow the same, worn-out patterns.  

Dating apps are mostly infested with sex predators and creepy men these days as if the hookup credo has completely taken over people’s urge to build an emotional and platonic connection with someone. 

After about two years of lockdown, it is likely for people to think that online dating is one of the few alternatives to finding one’s soulmate. But after hours of browsing through these dating apps, when you receive all the creepy texts, it can feel disappointing.

I feel exhausted by these dating apps. I have installed and uninstalled a few of them several times. At one point, it starts feeling like a hopeless grind when I get bored with the needlessly lengthy talking stages that do not have any future.

Most people on these apps are confused about what they are looking for. It can get frustrating.

I’ve had my fair share of experience with these dating apps, and it can be fun until it is not. When you find no luck, it starts draining you mentally. Finding someone organically also has its odds, but since dating apps are meant to help you discover someone you can bond with, it is more tormenting when you don’t.

Either do not get caught up in the exhaustion of online dating or open these apps with a mindset of not always succeeding. This is how you can retain your mental peace.
