I do computer programming. I always recommend people to stop trying to date online, and to try in real life.
Here's why: dating apps know perfectly what would your ideal partner be.
When you use them they analyze what kind of people you really like, and after a while they could find your perfect match.
If that is what they wanted to.
But dating apps don't want that. Instead the algorithm is optimized for keeping you interested, but never satisfied.
So the problem isn't how sexy you are, what your texting skills are, or that the world of dating got worse.
It's simpler: the world is the same as always. It's just that you are playing a game that you are damned to lose.

I always say that you need to realize that other people on dating apps are damaged or unable to get a SO, just like you are. So even someone who looks great on an app isn't as great as they may look.
Or maybe too on high demand :D
