Love online: Rubryka experiments. How to meet someone on Tinder and not regret it
We stopped meeting new people on the street because there are special applications and websites for that. For instance, Tinder or Badu. But you need to remember about red flags and your safety. Especially for Rubryka readers, our author conducted an experiment and shared all the life hacks she gained from her experience.
Swipe right, swipe left. That's what romantic interaction between people in the modern world has turned to. Many people have already forgotten what it's like to meet potential partners and establish new communication with them live. With the development of technology and the simplification of interpersonal communication, the reluctance to make significant efforts to meet a partner gradually increases, and the fear of personal communication grows. As a result, the art of pickup is almost extinct, and dating websites and applications have become an indispensable part of a single person's life.
Their popularity is apparent: you can selectively and meticulously scan potential partners before deciding if you want to start a conversation. Feelings aren't offended, zero vulnerability. On the other hand, anyone can create a false image in their profile on the dating platform, and behind it, a completely different person may be hidden. Add to this cocktail a coronavirus pandemic, when online communication for many became virtually the only type of interaction with other individuals and meeting someone — even more so.
An unfamiliar virus appearing and the first lockdown caused us to fear personal meetings with people and acquaintances. However, now that we've lost count of what the number a recent lockdown is and are tired of loneliness and lack of intimacy and new sensations, we're gradually returning to forgotten apps like Tinder and Badu, or starting to sign up on dating platforms.
Rubryka has prepared a small but useful guide on what to focus on when you meet someone on the Internet, what people you shouldn't meet, and how to go on a date, have a good time, and get out of it alive.
