The Case For IRL Dating: 17 Reasons To Stop Swiping

1. Dating Apps Aren't Always Used For Actual Dating

This one's kind of a no-brainer. If you're just looking for a one-time hookup — that's great! You do you! Tinder might actually be a good place for you to find it. But if you're looking for more, it takes a lot of swiping to find someone who is searching for the same. I'm sure we've all messaged with someone who is “just looking for fun”/”doesn't have time to commit”/”is just looking for friends.” It's confusing AF. First of all, HOW can we get the message across that dating apps aren't for friendships (that's what BumbleBFF is for).

If you're looking to meet someone that actually wants to go on several dates with you and consider the idea of a serious relationship, then you're probably better off going on the hunt in real life. Sure, it's awkward to put yourself out there and allow a chance for face-to-face rejection, but I can't be the only one who's sick of the inevitable “DTF?” Tinder message.
