Me you to dating
I wanted more than a flat photo and a single sentence could provide.
So I chose to swipe dating apps right off my homescreen.
Anyone trying to date outside of their phone has the potential to come off, well, creepy. I went speed dating for some face-to-face conversations, and it changed everything.
Of course, people don't love each other for what makes them the same; they love them for what makes them unique.Yet it's difficult to find that depth over text; it happens with body language.It happens with the dance and tempo of real conversation.I set out on a journey to find out, and it starts with defining love itself. Like any muscle, it must be persistently worked on in order to grow.And love for most people seems to emulate that—a laborious growing process.
"So if we agree that common interests and values are the types of things we're all looking for in relationships, how can we be expected to find them in an app that sorts for first-glance aesthetics and the ability to write one clever sentence about yourself? Your filters aren't set for love; they're set for lust, and their equation for it is faulty at best.
