Are dating apps bad?
If you're the average man, then the answer is probably yes.
In most cases, there's a small percentage of men who do really well with dating apps. They get the vast majority of women, including the hottest ones that are online.
For everyone else, you're basically left with scraps or nothing at all.
That means it's only going to be good for a small number of guys. You're going to be filtered up by your age and your height, hence why it's so common for guys to lie about their height online or lie about their age.
If you're looking for a relationship, that's a really s****** way to start it. Even if you meet somebody, you're already starting on a lie.
Plus, if it's a big lie, they're going to find out as soon as you meet them and they're not going to be happy.
Hell, I even went on a date before with a girl who told me a story that she went to meet this guy, she was supposed to meet a black guy.
She was sitting at this coffee shop waiting for her date, and this guy sitting at another table looks over at her, waves and says, "hey, it's me", and she's like, "it's me, who?" Because he was a white guy, and she was supposed to be meeting a black guy.
Well, this guy had actually used some other dude's photographs on his profile. She got pissed about that, of course, because she was deceived.
I guess that's probably called catfishing, or maybe not.
He tried to make her feel like she was in the wrong and she was superficial because she was leaving.
Obviously, that's an extreme story, but the lies about height and age are very very common, as well as using photographs which aren't entirely accurate.
That goes both ways. Another negative thing about online dating is that you're going to meet a lot of women who also lie about their age, it's very very common.
They also use photographs from when they were younger or lighter. After binging on Burger King for the last two years, she's just not the same person. In fact, she's two of them.
Another negative about online dating is you don't actually get to exercise your social skills and your confidence, aka your balls.
In fact, do you even have any balls left after online dating for a few years?
It takes a lot of courage to actually walk up to a woman and say hi and introduce yourself, as opposed to online where any coward can hide behind the computer screen and type up a letter or swipe on their phone.
That won't matter at all to you if you're not interested in personal development. But if you actually want to be a better man, then getting off of online dating is probably the best option for you.
Not only that, but by exercising your courage and actually meeting women in public, you will develop social and relationship skills to get better and better at dating.
You'll improve your dating results overall, as well as increase the number of women you're meeting.
Nobody's going to be able to filter you out because of your height or your age.
It's all going to be on your personality, which is something you're going to be able to develop by actually talking to people in public.
So, what do you think? Is online dating a bad thing or a good thing?
For me personally, I think it depends. It depends on who you are. If you're getting good results online dating, then keep doing that. But if not, it's time for a change.
That's all for today. If you’ve got any comments or questions, leave them below.
