Is It Embarrassing To Be On A Dating App?
It is not embarrassing to be on a dating app! There have been many relationships and marriages to come out of online dating, including mine.
My fiancé and I have always been honest about how we met. We embrace it. Meeting on a dating app is our story and I am proud of it. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Being on apps
The only reason online dating apps and sites exist is that people want to use them. Meeting someone on Tinder is no different than if you were to meet someone in a bar.
If you were approached by someone in a bar you weren’t interested in, you would politely turn them away.
By swiping left on Tinder, you are virtually doing the same thing. Only this time you can avoid the awkward eye contact that comes with it.
If you feel embarrassed to be on a dating app then maybe you shouldn’t be using one.
Meeting someone on a platform in which you feel uncomfortable is not going to be a good start to your relationship. Also, it is not fair to your partner to lie about where you met. Your story is important.
By lying about your use of dating apps you are feeding into the stigma that online dating is taboo.
In order to change the public’s mind about dating apps, you have to embrace the culture of online dating and show outsiders how normal it is.
Show them that regular, everyday, hard-working people use dating apps and that it isn’t just for creepy, scary men who sit alone at their computers all day.
