But the trouble is, as fun as swiping is, after a while it starts to feel more like a game than a way to meet a potential soulmate. Like online shopping, if you will. We all double-screen these days, and for many a millennial, as soon as you plonk yourself down on the sofa and turn on the TV, out comes the phone and the swiping begins, almost without thinking.
But is this doing us any good? I decided to give up dating apps for a month and see what happened. Would I meet anyone in real life? Could I cope with the lack of attention? Would my thumbs start twitching? It may sound ridiculous, but I felt nervous as I deleted all my apps. On the evenings when I was at home watching Netflix, I got twitchy fingers and was itching to open Bumble.
But I think more than anything this was just the need to do something with my hands or on my phone. I quickly found myself spending a lot more time on Instagram, but after a few days I realised it was less addictive than a dating app, and the urge to scroll wore off. Before long, I was actually capable of watching a film or television without simultaneously doing something on my phone.
And - shock horror - I enjoyed what I was watching far more as a result. Much like any addict, relapse was inevitable. Yes, I am weak and I caved. It was only about a week into the month and I was yet to build up much stamina. Obviously, the dream man was not on Happn. It was a moment of weakness. And lust. I had hoped that by quitting dating apps, I might subconsciously open myself up to meeting someone in real life, but alas.
Those issues may disproportionately affect me for some reason, right? Some intrepid fellow ran a little experiment to see how different the experience on OKCupid was for men and women. He created five dummy accounts for women and five for men, with varying degrees of attractiveness. After one week the women had received a combined total of messages, while the men had only been sent You read that right.
Women received more than seventeen times as many messages as men. Take a look at the full experiment here. I was admittedly a little shocked by that number, but somehow relieved. While I may feel better about not getting barraged with messages from interested women, no statistic can change the woeful state of their profiles.
Oh, the profiles! This ranges from cursory glances to multiple read-throughs for details. Here are a few things women write on their online dating profiles that turn me right the hell off and why:. No algorithm is going to find that special someone for me. Watch out, ladies — here I come! Not tonight though. Maybe I should just be happy with my cat.
After posting this, I did give up on Internet dating for around two years.
