best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet. Pros: Removes the awkwardness potential of a one-on-one date and gives you twice as many people that you might be interested. Graphic images, one word replies, constant rejection and extreme indifference and flakiness. Social species respond to loneliness and isolation, in the short term, by going into a self-preservation mode, designed to get the individual socially connected once again. Cons: The app requires you to give over control over to someone else to decide for you. If thats too hard, then at least try to adjust your behaviour online to match your behaviour offline. Pros: There is a strange thrill in being able to 'swipe' that acquaintance you've always fancied, asking them for a date (up) or telling them you want to sleep with them (down). One time I even downloaded Tinder because the gay-specific apps werent enough. The problem is that loneliness had been falsely characterized as a non-chronic disease associated with shyness, depression, being a loner, or having marginal social skills.
