Is dating more stress than it's worth? | The Tylt
Dating is a strange phenomenon. Not all cultures recognize it, and, depending on who you ask, its definition can change. However you define it, though, one can universally agree that the dating game has grossly changed with the rise of technology and specific dating apps. Because of this, there is a large portion of the single population that finds dating far more stressful than it's worth. But others still believe it can be fun (if you don’t take it too seriously). What about you?
Is dating more stress than it's worth?
Anyone who’s ever dipped their toes into the modern dating world knows how aggravating it can be. Among endless swipes are matches that can end up one of three ways: disgusting messages, ghosting or no date at all. It’s a baffling phenomenon with no answer in sight. Don’t even bother.
Besides, are you thinking about getting married any time soon? No? Then don’t date! If you’re not actively seeking that significant other, there’s no need to put that pressure on yourself and, at the same time, toy around with someone you’re not really interested in. So go ahead, delete that Bumble account.
Dating is what you make of it. If you make it into a huge ordeal with the end goal of finding the absolute love of your life, you’re setting yourself up for a stressful situation. If you have a bad time, then don’t see the person again, end of story. It’s nothing to get beat up over, really, especially if you’re not that invested in someone in the first place.
You don’t have to date specifically to get married, you know, or even to find someone to have a lasting relationship with. Go out, meet new people, and live a little. Happy hunting!
