I don't have the greatest track record when it comes to dating apps. They're a time suck, a mindfuck, and, a large portion of the time, wildly ineffective.
There was the guy who messaged with lightning-fast wit, but showed up to our date wearing an excessive amount of scarves and jewelry (including an offensively bedazzled man ring). Or the guy with the classic beach-and-sunset-with-surfboard photo who looked like he could be the Aladdin to my Jasmine, but whose in-person halitosis would have made any magic carpet unravel. And dozens upon dozens more -- enough to make anyone want to ditch online dating altogether.
Yet, we keep trying -- because it's so damn easy. Open your app du jour, peruse the juicy, local, on-market loins (and some technically NOT on the market, but you won't find that out until later), swipe, match, and inevitably be let down. But not TOO let down because all you need to do is repeat steps one through four again… and again… and again.
