Dating apps are all the rage these days. If you aren't using a dating app, or online dating, how are you even meeting people? Okay, I know that you can still meet people organically, but dating apps are just too fun to miss out on. They are hilarious, interesting, and honestly, they give some comedic relief about being single. I am one to take life way too seriously sometimes (Thanks, Dad), but I also appreciate a good laugh once in a while, especially when it comes to the dating arena.
Dating apps are convenient, low-risk, and can really help you figure out what you want and what you absolutely DON'T want. Here are the most popular dating apps available on iTunes!
Here are the advantages of dating apps:
You get to decide who you are going to be. You can be the absolute best version of yourself.
You find out what you like and don't like. You can really narrow down your hobbies.
You can take about 100,000 men/women with you wherever you go.
You are welcome to judge and be judged. There is no sugar coating it.
You can differentiate the scumbags from the nice guys. Typically, the nice guys vanish in a poof after a few days of conversation, but hey, at least you tried.
You can swipe left or right when you're bored and still be "productive".
You can change your profile, your likes and dislikes as your life changes.
You can delete the damn thing whenever you want.
If you are single, under the age of 40, and aren't online dating or using dating apps. I encourage you to do so. Will you find the man of your dreams? Probably not. But, you could find a friend, open a door to new friends, or find out that you aren't exactly where you want to be in life, or who you want to be, and start making yourself better. I am not saying you will find prince charming, but I am saying you will be inspired to be better. I think people who online date are either completely full of crap, or completely honest. I have found very few that are in between. I am getting pretty good at detecting full of crap guys. Those are usually the ones who invite you over after talking for 7 minutes, or offer to give you a body massage after 2 days of talking to them...Yes, that has happened to me. More than once.

I don't know how God will bring the right man into my life. I am not sure that He ever will, and that is okay. I want to keep myself open to possibilities, and open to who I can be.
What do you think of dating apps or online dating? Pro or anti?
