The majority of couples have met and are meeting their partners online! Whether if that’s through dating apps like Hinge, Bumble, Tinder or via social platforms like Instagram, it’s clear that online dating is here to stay.
I understand how defeating or shallow online dating can be. But my question to you is, how intentional are you with your dating app(s), or how intentional would you like to be? Are you on there in hopes of finding a healthy and fulfilling relationship? Are you being honest with potential partners about your intentions? The more forward we are about our desires and needs, the faster we can filter out the people who are not in alignment with us.
*Work: some people mentioned that they met their partner while working together. Others explained they met their partner while they were working – i.g. their partner walked into their place of work and hit it off with them.
