During times of self-doubt and self-pity, we often turn to dating apps for that confidence boost or validation we crave. But just because you swipe until your heart’s content doesn’t mean you will ever find what you’re looking for.
I feel like it’s really common for people to join dating apps with no real intention of pursuing anyone. Instead, they only want the matches to make themselves feel better or validate whatever boost they needed.
It’s totally flattering when you match with hot people, so I don’t blame our generation for enjoying that feeling. But a new study just proved how common it is.
