So you’ve swiped, you’ve matched, you’ve flirted over text and maybe even met a couple of people – but now it’s all becoming a bore. If this sounds familiar, then you might be suffering from DAB (Dating App Burnout). Here are the common symptoms, and our tips on what you can do about them:
You’ve Deleted (And Then Reinstalled) the Apps
When your frustration (or boredom) with dating apps reaches its peak, you remove your dating apps from your phone – only to reinstall them a few days or weeks later. You do it because you swear that this time, you’ll meet someone IRL, and then find out that it’s just as difficult in the flesh as it is online. Then, you reinstall, log back in, and the circle remains unbroken.
