1 Get out There
Deleting your dating apps will mean that if you want to meet someone, you are forced to get out of the house. Yes, I get it, you might be a homebody or lack the gift of time but, hear me out. When your friends ask you out to events or activities, SAY YES! When you see your favorite musician coming to town, buy tickets and go with friends. When summer comes along, host BBQ’s, go hiking, plan camping trips, go out and live life! Say yes when friends ask you to events you normally wouldn’t go to. This brings opportunities to meet people you normally wouldn’t, increasing the chances of meeting someone you might find interest in.
Also, this is a great way to build strong relationships with your current friends and meet others as you go. You’ll be having fun along the way, as you quickly notice your group of friends and networks growing from all the time you’ve spent in new social situations. Don’t order a guy the same way you do a pizza, that just doesn’t sound right, even if it is 2018. Nothing compares to meeting someone organically and let’s admit it, you will have a better love story. Moral of this rant? Get out of the house and your comfort zone and meet someone the good old’ fashioned way. You’ll make great memories along the way.
2 Quality Dates
Secondly, let’s talk about quality. If you have used a dating app, chances are you have a bad date experience. Your date is rude, doesn’t look like his pictures, lied about height, has bad breath, manners, etc., the list can continue endlessly on. How embarrassing and awkward are those blind dates? Meeting someone in real life removes all of that. It is the ultimate experience, giving you a first impression without expectations and an organic chance to continue to move forward if you both feel a mutual attraction. Nothing is worse than showing up on a date and realizing within minutes the connection isn’t there.
When you meet someone in real life for the first time, there is usually a connection that brought you to connect in the first place. No more dating regret. Along with the topic of quality, you will ultimately remove yourself from a group of people who are most likely matching and hooking up with the same people on the app in the area. Bluntly putting it, you’re not matching with Tommy who matched and is already hooking up with Amy, Jessica and Sydney, too. Who wants to be apart of that? Meeting someone organically you will be able to get to know them on a more personal level, with fewer chances of ending up in some love pool, STD filled drama. You know it’s true.
Hopefully you had an awakening here or a reminder of why dating apps are no good for you.
Dating apps are for those who are afraid to leave their comfort zones. Your true love is out there waiting for you so get off the couch and find him!
