But just last week I deleted those dating apps from my phone. If I’m honest with myself, I bring those apps back when I’m lonely, I need some affirmation, or if I’m just plain bored. I don’t really believe I’ll find someone I could fall in love with online, and that’s probably a good chunk of the reason why I haven’t. It brings out something especially judgmental in me. I make hasty decisions when I learn things that it might take me weeks to learn about someone organically.
In my personal experience of online dating, most people are either looking for sex quickly, or they’re looking to build a strong emotional connection fast. I like the uncertainty and the flirtation and the social aspect of dating. As I’ve learned, if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it doesn’t matter how many matches you acquire, or how many dates you go on, or even whether the people you go out with share your exact beliefs.
And to be honest, I’m not really looking for either of those things. Sure it’s flattering to discover all my matches or to receive messages, but what am I actually doing with those interactions? It’s easier for me to let God direct me when I’m not swiping left or right and wondering whether I’ve rejected or chosen the wrong guy, when I’m not the one moving the mouse. Or, more importantly, none of this matters if you’re not ready to surrender the situation to God.
In the first moments of discovering a profile, things that aren’t dealbreakers for me in “real life” suddenly become grave issues.
Online, I have the opportunity to make a judgment call based on grammar or an affinity for anime or one unlucky gym selfie.
