How to Choose A Dating App in 2016
We live in the Internet Age. Our whole lives are touched by the digital and not a single one of you is exempt. I know that because you’re reading this.
So it should be no surprise at all that online dating is now one of the most popular ways people meet. But between the ghosting and dick pics and fuckboys and various other horrible new terms we’ve developed to deal with the social fall-out of pinning our hearts to an algorithm, are any of us really getting what we want?
The problem might lie in our own expectations, in being choosy or not. It might also be that we are overloaded with options, the paradox of choice. To help you navigate the murky waters of swiping left or right, I’ve compiled a handy guide to the biggest dating apps out there (and oh god, there are so many of them), with the questions you should ask yourself before deciding whether or not to write a “blurb” of lies about your personality and interests for strangers to pick apart.
Or hell, just try them all. I did. You’re welcome.
