I’m 22 and Already Over Online Dating—Here’s Why I Stopped Swiping
For as long as we can remember, people have used any means necessary to form relationships and meet new people. Back in the Pride and Prejudice days, if a man wanted to meet his future wife, he would simply host a ball, and invite all of the prettiest girls in the land. Jetting in from the UK, I was definitely curious as to what the Argentine men and the dating culture here had to offer. Comparison of an English boy and an Argentine boy starting a conversation on Tinder. There are, of course, the obvious differences right from the outset, that moment when you catch eyes with someone, and you both know that you want the other person to make a move. I have found, however, that I have been approached by more men here in the last two months whether it be in person or online than I have in my whole dating career up until now. Have I suddenly become way prettier which is obviously a possibility , or do the Argentines have this whole dating thing nailed down better than the Brits? More than 91 million people use dating websites all over the world, and with more options to choose from all the time, suddenly the little paddling pool in which we used to fish, seems to be starting to resemble more of a lake. Here in Buenos Aires, the newest fad is the dating app Happn , which takes the online dating world a step further. Mmm, I know.
What could you possibly know yet? I mainly use Bumble, while a lot of my friends are on Hinge one even enjoys Coffee Meets Bagel — to each their own. Say you do match with a guy that seems somewhat normal, then maintaining a conversation to get to a point where you two decide to meet up is a job in itself.
