Everyone meets on dating apps nowadays, because that's supposedly the most efficient route to finding a fellow singleton. But anyone who has sat down with Tinder, Bumble, or even OkCupid knows that it's actually a lot of work to swipe through all the people you would never date in a million years. If you've felt discouraged by how few folks you want to connect with on these apps designed to connect, you're not alone. Well, you are, that's why you're on them, but you're not the only person having that same experience.
Writer Alanna Bennett asked her followers what they swipe left on when they're on a dating app. Swiping left is a rejection pretty much across the board on apps. Bennett says she has a few immediate deal breakers: anyone holding a weapon in a photo, and anyone who might make her hike. Seems fair.
