Frustrated dating sites

20 Sep

Dating sites like Ok Cupid and Plenty of Fish (POF) became more popular.After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.

First, was the women became less trusting, less open and much more selective in who they even talk to.

While the possibilities seem exciting at first, the effort, attention, patience, and resilience it requires can leave people frustrated and exhausted.“It only has to work once, theoretically,” says Elizabeth Hyde, a 26-year-old bisexual law student in Indianapolis.

Hyde has been using dating apps and sites on and off for six years.

I don’t believe hookup culture has infected our brains and turned us into soulless sex-hungry swipe monsters. It doesn’t do to pretend that dating in the app era hasn’t changed. Tinder arrived in 2012, and nipping at its heels came other imitators and twists on the format, like Hinge (connects you with friends of friends), Bumble (women have to message first), and others.

Older online dating sites like OKCupid now have apps as well.
