Mallory Hoot of ForHerAboutHerByHer.com vents her ever growing frustration with dating apps in the hilariously truthful Swipe Left, Again: The Endless Carousel of Dating Apps and their Empty Promises.
Every now and then, there comes along a new "revolutionary" dating app that promises to match you with your perfect partner, based on… you guessed it, your personality traits. This time, they swear, it's different.
Same Old Story, Different Day
The days of simply uploading a stunning selfie and jotting down a few interesting facts about yourself are long gone. In this utopian future of dating, an 'unprecedented' algorithm will analyze your every trait, pastime, and deepest fears, to conjure up your ideal match. This magic happens while you enjoy your morning latte and flick through today's news, oblivious to the digital wizardry unfolding on your behalf.
Remember the string of previous dating apps that swore they'd find you 'the one', only to leave you with awkward dates, perpetual ghosters, and the occasional catfish? Well, this new app promises to put an end to all that. As to how, were still awaiting a detailed explanation.
The Groundbreaking 'New' Feature: Personality Traits
Matching based on personality traits is nothing groundbreaking. It's like taking an old car, giving it a fresh coat of paint, a new set of tires, and calling it a "new model with advanced features".
But wait, they promise, this is no ordinary paint job. The latest app to join the dating game employs the same outdated personality test that has been debunked more times than the myth of 'love at first sight'. However, it's now touted as a 'scientifically proven matchmaker'.
The true science here, folks, is the art of reselling old concepts in shiny new packages.
In the Name of Love: A Dating Battlefield
Despite the sarcasm, we must acknowledge that dating is indeed a complicated affair. According to the newest contender in the app store, its a labyrinth filled with dead-ends, only conquerable with their advanced labyrinth algorithm. Its as if theyve borrowed Ariadnes mythical thread to help you navigate this perplexing maze. Only, instead of encountering a monstrous Minotaur, youll face the equally daunting profile proclaiming, 'fluent in sarcasm' or 'not your typical guy/gal'.
The Bottom Line
While we all hope for the day when love truly is just a click away, until then, we'll keep entertaining ourselves with the grandiose claims of these dating apps. As the saying goes, the course of true love never did run smooth – it seems it's more likely to run on algorithms.
Ready for another shot at finding 'The One'? Off you go to the app store for the best swinger website or the best swinger apps. A new day, a new dating app, another promise of lifelong love. Ah, such are the joys and trials of modern romance!
