5 Things That Happened When I Stopped Using Dating Apps

And if I do meet someone? Well, it won’t be someone pretending to be 15 years younger than his profile photo on an app (which incidentally features him holding a fish or crouching next to a drugged tiger). It won’t be someone who I meet in a crushingly awkward scenario where I discover he is rude to waiters, has an overly loud voice, or is wearing white towelling socks with black shoes. And it won’t be someone I have to force myself to fall for. If it happens, it’ll be because it’s meant to.

In the meantime? I’m busy building a life that excites me rather than treading water waiting for someone else to.
