Online Dating - Love or Lust?


Ah I did it, god knows why but I did it. I downloaded one of those online dating apps and found myself swiping all over the place at the various faces. Initially, I thought the apps might actually give me a bit of confidence but I was wrong instead I've learnt the majority of girls on their are extremely shallow but then again so am I. I mean I was judging girls too based on their looks, it's difficult we are bought up not to judge people and taught not to in school yet the world is full of judgement, reality TV programmes are based on judging people.

I honestly can't see anything good coming out of them, half the people on there are catfishing, after explicit pictures or actually don't want to date at all. However, I have spoke to a few girls who so far appear lovely but then the doubt kicks in, I wonder why on Earth they would be on this app when they are that beautiful in both appearance and personality. Worryingly, there's worse apps where people can pinpoint exactly where you live and before you know it you can meet someone in minutes. It's a shame it's come to this, technology has taken over our lives, I envy older generations who re-tell their love stories of how they first met in an era where there was no technology and the only way to meet someone was to get yourself out there in the real world. I can't help but feel social networks have been the downfall of many relationships, it's now even easier to cheat on someone and some people are incapable of resisting temptation.

I'm not going to give up hope though because without hope there is nothing. As cliche as it may sound there is someone out their for everyone. It might sound silly to some people, but I'm now at that age where I want to settle down, meet the girl of my dreams, get engaged, have children blah blah blah. I have a lot of envy for the world right now, I despise seeing "parents" being in a position I wish I was in only to neglect their children. I'm finding myself having to resist getting into an argument when I see the way some people speak to their children or seeing them smoke around them.

Will I ever meet the one who's name will be inscribed on a lock ready for the love bridge?
