How to take a break from dating
While every college girl boss is busy, some are just especially busy.
Some of us need our friends to reserve a spot in our Google calendars just to have a five-minute chat about when we can hang out next.
Unless of course, you and your devoted other half are searching for a cat sitter on Bumble or a third person to join you in choosing a side in your lovers’ quarrels, then, by all means, use all of the dating apps known to Android.
However, if there’s no doubt that you and your SO are dating, you shouldn’t even think about installing a dating app on your phone.
However, this may just give you a pseudo-boost of confidence, because you're actually basing your self-worth on validation from other people.
They send you some "witty" pickup line, you don’t respond ASAP because you’re being productive and then they say “that’s okay, you’re fat and ugly anyway.” Gee, I feel so stellar about myself now.
If you don't believe us that dating apps can negatively impact your self-esteem, take it from the American Psychological Association's study on Tinder's influence on self-esteem. D., of the University of North Texas, explains, “Tinder users reported having lower levels of satisfaction with their faces and bodies and having lower levels of self-worth than the men and women who did not use Tinder." There are plenty of healthy alternatives to using a dating app.
