I've been on dating apps for pretty much as long as I've been single, so it's the only "dating scene" I know. Dating, to me, mostly exists on a screen. I'm calling it App-less April ApplessApriland starting Friday, I'm deleting my dating apps from my phone for one month. We're not breaking up, just taking some time off to reevaluate things, and I invite you to join me if you're feeling dating app burnout and curious about what the dating scene is like without them.
In the past year, I've gone on seven dates, six of which have been via dating apps. Everyone's Flaky — Me Included Forget ghostingsomething dating apps have made beyond easy to do, people also have incredibly short attention spans on their phones.
I don't know why we do it — maybe we get bored, second guess ourselves, forget, let too much time pass, or move on to someone else — but we have nothing invested in our matches until we've met them.
