Dating in real life is now possible again, although it can still be nerve-wracking. Although the pandemic has changed how we date forever, one thing is certain: meeting new people can be difficult.
Anyone who has ever been single and is looking for love knows that it can be difficult to find someone who wants a long-term relationship and not just a short-term one. This can cause you to lose faith in your ability to love and make you feel better. While dating apps are a good way to meet people and make connections, you will never find the right person for you. And clicks with you makes the whole needle-in-the-haystack search look like a cinch.
It doesn’t matter if you use apps or not, it takes time to find your partner. However, there’s hope — dating apps and sites are not the strictly casual dating space that they’re sometimes made out to be. People have become more “prioridating” over the past year. This means that they are less concerned about superficial traits and more about genuine connection and compatibility. This shift is reflected in dating apps, too — more and more include dedicated sections about intentions right on your profile — including on the ever-hookup-friendly Tinder.
