Is dating app fatigue ruining your relationship?

Last year, The Atlantic explained what so many of us have been feeling in a piece titled: The Rise of Dating App Fatigue. The problem, the article explains, is that this tool that’s supposed to be the “easiest” way to meet someone, is actually incredibly labor-intensive and creates even more ambiguity in relationships.

Is it too expensive to date?

Yes, dating can be expensive, but you dont need to dine at the Four Seasons to impress someone. These days, its not gauche to use a deal-of-the-day coupon or Groupon for a dating idea, providing youre not only asking for two-for-one yogurt at $4.99. The result is, your wallet is now thin and you still find yourself alone on date night.

Are dating apps really a thing?

Yep, its a thing. If you’re currently single or have been in the past five years or so, there’s a 99% chance you’ve used a dating app to try and meet someone. (That’s not an exact statistic—just the results of a quick poll amongst my friends.)

Why are so many of US being ghosted by online dating apps?

Dating apps have allowed us to date more than most people of previous generations. When you’re feeling the melancholy weight of app fatigue, taking the effort to politely distance yourself from someone you hardly know feels laborious. That’s why so many of us have been ghosted by our Tinder and Bumble matches, and why you and I have done it, too.

Online dating is really popular. Using the internet is really popular. A survey conducted in 2013 found that 77% of people considered it “very important” to have their smartphones with them at all times. With the rise of apps like Tinder (and the various copycat models), who could blame them?
