Online dating scares Online sexchatting without using webcamera
While none of these apps call themselves games, it doesn't take much effort to realize that that is exactly what they are.Video games, if you will, where you become the player, and everyone else is the game.I tried everything from tindr, to Jswipe, to grindr, to every other word that is missing an "e" in it.
All of a sudden you're bored at work, bored at home, bored with your friends, bored at the gym. Life just isn't as exciting as you want it to be, and the thought that maybe just around the next swipe is the person you've been searching for all along is exciting.
I don't think this is necessarily true for everyone facilitating these tools, but I do think it's way more common than many people realize.
It's another numbing device in the avoidance of ourselves.
I put only the best pictures of myself out there, but not what I look like when I wake up in the morning.
I filtered myself in basically every way, and took what makes me uniquely special out of the equation, so I could be more "marketable." That isn't sexy, romantic or interesting.Yes, all those things did and do continue to play a part of who I am interested in, but online they became all I saw, and I left little room to be more open-minded than had I been meeting these gentlemen in person.
