Here’s Why I Think Dating Apps Are Exhausting

Breakfast Babble: ED’s little space on the interwebs where we meet to discuss ideas and get ready for the day. We also judge things. Sometimes. Still. Either way, call it catharsis and join the people.


Hi how are you? What are you doing? Where are you staying? What are your hobbies? What are you looking for? These mundane questions can sometimes exhaust you mentally. While dating apps have made it easier for you “find a soul mate”, they can also harm your mental health.

Be it Tinder, Bumble, Happn, OkCupid, or anything else, these dating apps are all the same. Swiping, talking, going on dates, then ghosting or ghosting: this cycle continues until you finally give up online dating.

Hours and hours of scrolling, stuck in the act of constant swipes and matches to the right – all dating apps follow the same worn patterns.

Dating apps these days are mostly infested with sexual predators and creepy men, as if the hookup credo has completely taken precedence over people’s urge to create an emotional, platonic connection with someone.

After about two years of confinement, it is likely that people think that online dating is one of the few alternatives to find a soul mate. But after hours of browsing through these dating apps, when you get all the scary texts, it can be disappointing.

I feel exhausted from these dating apps. I’ve installed and uninstalled a few of them multiple times. At some point it starts to feel like a hopeless grind when I get bored with the unnecessarily long chat stages that have no future.

Most users of these apps don’t know what they are looking for. It can get frustrating.

I’ve had my fair share of experience with these dating apps, and it can be fun until it’s not. When you can’t find luck, it starts to drain you mentally. Finding someone organically also has its chances, but since dating apps are meant to help you discover someone you can bond with, it’s more tormenting when you don’t.

Either don’t get caught up in online dating exhaustion, or open these apps with a mindset of not always succeeding. This is how you can keep your mental peace.
