17 Tweets You’ll Relate To If You’re Stuck In The Vicious Dating App Cycle
Dating apps — can’t live with them, can’t live without them.
OK, so that may not be the exact right phrase, but dating in the modern digital world can be… well it can be a lot.
In fact, it’s pretty normal to go through the cycle of downloading, deleting, and then redownloading dating apps depending on how bored you are with life. I get it. I’m there with you.
So while in the last 12 months alone I have downloaded and deleted Tinder/Bumble at least 3-4 times, it turns out judging by these tweets I’m not alone.
Here are 17 tweets you’ll relate to on a deep, personal level if you’re stuck in the dating app cycle:
1. Dudes, just try a little banter first, please!
i’m sick of men on dating apps being like “hey lol wanna grab a drink?” right off the bat. No, DEREK, I don’t wanna fucking grab a drink. Wanna know why Derek? Because I don’t even fucking know you and you can’t bother to send more than two texts my god at least TRY

2. Can we kill the phrase “partner in crime” yet?
men on dating apps: LOOKING FOR MY PARTNER IN CRIME. A DOWN TO EARTH GIRL. LETS SKIP THE SMALLTALK AND GO STRAIGHT TO A FIRST DATE. ALL BAR ONE. PLANNING MY NEXT TRIP TO SOUTH AMERICA. WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET. NANDOS. SIX PHOTOS OF ME TAKEN FROM BELOW. ARCTIC MONKEYS.

3. Sometimes the bar is set so low.

4. Like, so so low.
in hindsight i should’ve trusted my intuition and stopped using dating apps the second i had to explain to a dude that a turkey and a chicken weren’t the same thing

5. We’re all looking for something unattainable it would seem.
Eye rolling at all the men on dating apps saying they’re looking for a girl who isn’t psycho. Well John, I’m looking for a man with at least half a brain, who can respond to text messages and not mansplain things to me on our 2nd date. I guess we’ll both have to settle for less.

6. And, look, we’re all in need of some attention.

7. This pattern is far too regular.
my dating life in a nutshell:
1. installs dating app
2. forgets to respond to messages
3. delete dating app

8. As is this bio.

9. Honestly, sometimes I think the FBI agent monitoring my phone is judging me so hard.

11. For the love of God, at least write SOMETHING in your bio.
