Author Lucy Vine recently shared her thoughts and experiences of online dating app Tinder with The Daily Mail. She talks candidly about how she feels the app and others like it continue to shape modern people’s attitude to dating, and could even be changing people’s attitudes to social interaction in general.
One big issue she discusses is Tinder burnout – the time which comes during almost every person’s Tinder usage if they don’t get results quickly enough. One way in which this burnout can be avoided that the article mentions?
A dating debugging service from a company better known for its professional home cleaning and gardening. Fantastic Services, eh? Seems to ring a bell.
As the author of the article puts it, Tinder can become “an exhausting, omnipotent reminder that I should be doing something about my singleness.” Seen from this angle, the app’s own convenience and ease of use can almost feel like they’re mocking the people who fail to quickly find love through it!
Causes of Tinder Burnout
The flip side of Tinder’s easy-to-access, easy-to-meet-people philosophy means that it’s equally easy to ignore, stop talking to or plain forget about the app – and the very real people who are behind the profiles on it.
Some of the most common reasons behind the phenomenon of Tinder burnout are:
- Tinder users who don’t answer – the number of people who simply don’t answer when you message them is very noticeable indeed, even when you get a match.
- Abandoned profiles on Tinder – because of the general malaise of burnout and its easy to use, easy to drop style, the app is littered with abandoned profiles.
- Ghosting – ghosting is the name given to those people who suddenly and mysteriously stop messaging you in the middle of a conversation. Was it something you said? Have they found someone in another way? Or have they suddenly developed their own bad case of burnout? You don’t know – because they just disappeared!
- Inappropriate messages – the unsolicited pic has become both a trope and meme of using dating apps and the reason why many people swear they’ll never pick one up again.
Fantastic’s Dating Debugging Service
Which is why there has to be a better way! As Fantastic Services CEO Rune Sovndahl himself comments in the article, the dating debugging service takes care of the “admin” part of using a dating app. You tell an expert what you’re looking for in a partner. They’ll filter the “mundane” and inappropriate and will quickly see the warning signs which show when a “match” is a disaster waiting to happen!
It’s perfect if you want all the best bits of Tinder without the grind.
