I Don't Like Dating Apps Because People Pretend To Be Someone They're Not

It is common for people to pretend to be someone that they are not. This definitely applies to the dating world. I wonder why people feel like they need to go through the trouble to put up a facade to impress someone. If everyone is being themselves from the beginning, then it would be much easier. You would know sooner rather than later if it is possible to have a serious relationship with someone.

There is nothing worse than someone pretending to be perfect at the beginning of a relationship. With acting like they can spoil you rotten by taking you out on expensive dates, or trips, knowing they cannot afford it. Or someone treating you with respect, but you eventually realize that they are actually a disrespectful person.

This is the main reason why I would not like to be set up on blind dates, do online dating, or use dating apps. I know that online dating or using dating apps is really popular with people always using the internet. It may seem like an easier way to find a significant other. However, it is much easier for people to lie about what they look like, where they are from, where they live, their education level, financial status, and their past relationships.

There is no reason for all of that stress with having to worry about if people are telling the truth about who they really are. Of course, it is obvious that lying only will lead to heartbreak. I know it is sad to wonder if there is really such a thing as true love? Or is finding a soulmate is overrated? It seems like finding love in the movies is really easy. That is not the case in real life. Everyone does not get a happily ever after, unfortunately.

I know it seems like I am totally against dating. No, I am not. But I do not like when people think it is okay to play with a person's emotions.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
