Imagine carrying around your very own virtual matchmaker.With the e Harmony app installed on your phone, you’ll never need to set aside time for online dating again.And, while it may be hard to tell from my healthy relationship, non-sexy sleepwear and shared toilet habits, I’ve been on many a dating app in my time. I knew what to say and how to play it and what pictures would get the most swipes.You are looking at the slightly (3 lbs, give or take) heavier, makeupless remains of what used to be a Tinderella. I was also the queen of disappointment, sore thumbs and hearing “I just want you to know I’m not looking for a right now.”I even met my boyfriend/roommate/butt-touching partner on Tinder- but that took a lot of digging on multiple platforms. Quantity had never been my primary goal, but boy did that attention sure feel good. Both to the singles of the world, with cramped, buttless hands and to the tech gods who hold our horny fates in their clammy palms like an ergonomic mouse.
Mere holding (compared to no-touch viewing) was associated with reduced attraction, ascribed personhood, and psychological ownership.
There is literally no excuse for this level of buffoonery. Sliding scale of acceptable tattoos from “high-quality portraits or culturally significant designs” to “half-finished stick-and-poke portrait of Baphomet from the week he read the Satanic Bible”.
We know it’s not always easy to find time to online date on your computer, so we’ve developed the e Harmony mobile app to make it easier than ever to meet better matches on the move.
Online dating always felt partly artificial, and transition from that to a "real" relationship sketchy.
On social media platforms, especially with professional colleagues where we have a lot of common ground to begin with (and might meet "in the real world" at a conference or something), it's more likely to lead to something more enduring.
