37 Reasons to Swipe Left and Delete Your Dating Apps

Enjoy And Share

Like most people in our generation, I’ve been on my fair share of dating apps. (Okay, more than my fair share…)

Like most people, I’ve developed a weird addiction to checking my dating apps on a fairly frequent basis.

Sometimes you just need to realize that the apps are doing more harm to you than good.

  1. You’re on more than two dating apps.

  2. Seriously. Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, Zoosk…

  3. How many apps will you download? The limit (probably) does not exist.

  4. Whenever you hear about a new app, you just HAVE to try it out.

  5. You’re super disappointed when you realize that it isn’t popular in your area yet.

  6. Even though you’ve seen the same people on every single app, you still hope that you’ll find someone new.

  7. You’re actually judging people for NOT being on dating apps.

  8. “Everyone uses dating apps” comes out of your mouth at least once a day.

  9. You’re actually defensive when someone asks why you’re using OkCupid.

  10. The first thing you check in the morning isn’t the weather or Twitter anymore.

  11. Instead, it’s ALWAYS your new Tinder matches.

  12. You’re talking to so many people that you’re actually mixing up the conversations.

  13. And not in a “haha, I’m so funny because I’m talking to three people” way.

  14. At least half of your conversations start with, “I was talking to a guy on…”

  15. You’ve cycled through every single person on Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid.

  16. You’ve actually gone back through your old matches to see if there was some diamond in the rough that you missed.

  17. Every time you see someone you know has a significant other, your view of love dies a little more.

  18. You’re starting to wonder if love even exists.

  19. All of your self worth comes from the number of matches you get.

  20. If you swipe through ten people and not get a single match, you immediately start to question everything.

  21. You think that what your Tinder bio says is one of the most important things in your life.

  22. Interesting messages aren’t your priority anymore.

  23. You respond to every single “hey” that you get sent.

  24. There are so many random phone numbers in your phone.

  25. Seriously. How many guys named “John” do you ACTUALLY know?

  26. You’ve developed a hierarchy of dating apps.

  27. So meeting a guy on this app is better than that app…

  28. You’re afraid to swipe left on anyone because they MIGHT be your soulmate.

  29. You’ve talked to guys that your friends have talked to in the past…

  30. Even though you know you won’t like them.

  31. Your dating apps are the most used apps on your phone.

  32. Seriously. Your shortcuts are ALWAYS Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid.

  33. If you’re interested in a guy IRL, your first thought is always, “Would I swipe right on him?”

  34. Dating is starting to feel like a second (or third) job.

  35. You don’t get excited about potential dates anymore.

  36. Honestly, you’re so drained that you don’t even want to go.

  37. Dating apps don’t make you happy anymore.

Sure, there are perks to dating apps. But sometimes you just need to take a dating detox.
