Complaints of being addicted to or burned out by dating are on the rise – suggesting it’s its own end – not a means.
The availability of dating apps has changed our culture to the degree that society has come to devalue meeting someone new in person due to the accessibility of other online users.
Some say the situation surrounding online dating seems like an addiction.
According to data from this year’s Singles in America survey by Match.com and biological anthropologist Helen Fisher millennials are 125 percent more likely than those of any older generation to say they’re addicted to the process of dating.
Additionally men are 97 percent more likely than women to say they feel addicted to dating – while 54 percent of women report actual burnout.
