Although online dating applications have become the dominant platform for romance, I am unable to convince myself to use them. While many individuals have established successful relationships through the use of apps like Tinder, I prefer to seek out love in a more traditional manner. Here's why:
1. Love Should Happen Organically
For me, love is natural, unrestrained, and authentic. I know it might sound a bit clichéd or idealistic, but I believe in destiny and the idea that everything occurs for a purpose. I also think that relationships may appear and disappear like waves that crash on the beach — although I admit, it's a bit of a flowery comparison.
2. I Don't Waste Time
Have you considered the amount of time you're squandering by going on aimless dates? Engaging in this lousy game of chance has very slim prospects of success. It's an enormous waste of time and resources for a minuscule chance of triumph. Furthermore, you're pouring money into hanging out with someone you barely know.
3. I Can Be Sure I'm Ready For It
Every relationship has its purpose and duration in your life. When you're without a partner to share love, it might be an opportunity to introspect and seek answers within yourself. Before Cupid strikes again, you may need to do some soul-searching, and that's perfectly acceptable. I believe that the right person will enter my life when I'm prepared to welcome them, and I'm not going to force matters by browsing for them on a dating app.
4. I Think It's Hot When A Guy Asks Me Out In Person
Hitting on girls behind a phone takes no effort at all. I admire men who have the courage to put themselves out there and risk being rejected. It takes a lot of bravery, and I prefer my men with a side of courage.
5. Saying You "Met Online" Is Boring
Do you really want your maid of honor to read out your first Tinder conversation at your wedding? I mean, "the moment he said 'hey watsup,' she knew he was the one." Seriously? I thought love was supposed to happen at first sight, not at first swipe.
6. I'm More Likely To Find Someone I Actually Like
The saying "birds of a feather flock together" holds a lot of truth, in my opinion. When you immerse yourself in the things that interest you and engage with the world around you, you increase your chances of meeting someone who shares your passions and values. You don't have to go out of your way to find potential partners – they may be right in front of you, waiting to be discovered.
7. I Keep My Pride Intact
Online dating can be incredibly frustrating and damaging to your self-esteem. With so many users, abusers, and people who are just plain confusing, it's no wonder that many people are turned off by the idea. Personally, I prefer to avoid the stress altogether and focus on meeting people in person. After all, online dating is 90 percent stressful and only 10 percent fun.
8. I'm Not The Superficial Type
I prefer getting to know someone in real life because I need more than just a picture and a few sentences to determine if I like them. Meeting someone in person allows you to feel a certain energy and attraction that you just can't experience through an app.
9. Most People Give Up On It Anyway
I've lost count of how many people have told me they despise online dating. If I had a nickel for every time, I'd be rich. Instead of wasting your time and energy on something you might end up quitting, why not opt for traditional dating? It can save you a lot of hassle and annoyance, take my word for it.
10. I'd Rather Be Alone Than Hang Out With A Possible Murderer
Although there's always a certain level of risk when you go on a date with someone new, meeting up with a complete stranger online increases your chances of ending up on a dinner date with a serial killer. While it may be harder to find a date the traditional way, I prefer to take my time and go out with someone I can trust.
