The other night I opened Instagram to tap through some stories before bed. One of my friends popped up, ranting to her close friends about another shitty date.
I DM’d her, and we got to talking. With every message, it became more and more apparent how unhappy dating made her.
I asked, “You seem miserable from dating. Do you think it’s good for you mentally?”
Dating is a process. Unless you’re amongst the lucky few, it takes more than one date to find a great match. For a lot of people, it takes many dates.
No wonder, then, that people are suffering from what’s known as “dating fatigue.”
