Can online dating cause depression
There's a point in our lives where we get tired of being single.
Seeing all the cute couples on TV shows or movies and from the millions of Tumblr posts, you can't escape actually encountering them in person while you're just standing there wearing your joggers and an oversized hoodie that says "I'm always a slut for soft pretzels" (Sorry, Mom).
It starts with you signing up for an account, having that nervous feeling along with a million thoughts that run through your head.
Once your account has been created, shit starts to get real.
You have to pick the perfect pictures to go on your profile so people don't think negatively towards you.
Once you specifically hand select each picture that you probably don't even feel confident of because, unfortunately, you don't feel good enough about them, it's time to write your After that part's over, it's time for the fun part, swiping to see who you think is attractive.
When that happens, it's such a frustrating time because you want to know what you said that turned them off. You're so excited because you'll finally get to meet this person, but at the same time, you're scared/nervous because you don't want to mess anything up.
I honestly don't suggest online dating until you think you can actually handle it.
It’s mentally exhausting with all of the thoughts that run through your head and also it keeps you unfocused to the most important things that are going on in your life.
Once you get to the point of wanting to try to gain some confidence, you sign up for the war of online dating.
The reason why I say war, and some people would too, is because of an annoying, little (not so little) thing called anxiety.
