You ever spend a lot of time with online dating apps? I like to reinstall mine every 6 months or so and then immediately delete them again. It’s a fun little tradition. I’m considering centering a new religion around it with holidays and stuff.
But some people are a bit more persistent than me, and as a result they come away with a lot of stories and screenshots from that particular world. Which, luckily, they share with the rest of us, in the form of these tweets.
10. Question everything
Come on, we all know where this is going.
I think the most annoying part about online “dating” is playing “how are you” and 21 questions over and over and over again.
“What do you do for fun?”
It’s a pandemic. For fun, I move from my bedroom to my kitchen table and if I really want to spice it up, I go to Target.

I’m more interested in what the heck that third tiny circle is.

7. The great filter
That would save a lot of unnecessary heartache and weird conversations.
I need a filter on dating apps where I can take out anyone with my ex’s name

I’m under the impression that you probably can’t.

4. Couched in terms
We’ve gone beyond any semblance of coherent humor or irony now.

And THAT, friends, is how you do the online dating thing. Kind of. I guess. I dunno, there are no rules just get out there and do what makes you happy.
Have you had any luck with various dating apps? Which ones were best?
