Online dating breakups

You might not think it, but your idea for a new tattoo design may well be rooted in your heartache.

So, maybe wait a while before getting ‘Life’s a Bitch’ inked on your thigh.

Your failed relationship is not worth you giving up on life and love.

I mean, if you’re going to date for 2 years before you get married, what difference does it make if you met at a party or on Ok Cupid?

On the other hand, I see a flaw in what the study seems to suggest, which is that there’s a problem with the fact that people who date online tend to break up quicker. If you never meet someone in real life, and you have a chance encounter that leads to love, you are more likely to stay in a bad or dead-end relationship because of your perception of scarcity.

I could accept the possibility that people who met online are more likely to get divorced, even though a competing study from 2013 said the complete opposite.

From a purely objective point of view, it doesn’t make any sense that there’d be a difference either way.

I try pretty hard not to give into confirmation bias.

Which is to say that I believe that online dating is a valuable tool in your dating arsenal.

If you burnt your hand on a fire, you wouldn’t return to the fire to try and soothe your burn would you?

There are times for stiffening your upper lip but this isn’t one of them.

Sometimes it works, but usually cutting off your long blonde locks and dying your new crop black just to show you’re a ‘new’ person becomes something you regret.

The same applies to piercings and especially to tattoos.

IRL one may get a better, more accurate sense of the person.
