There is no question that online dating and apps have changed the dating scene, but has it changed it for the better or made it worse? How so?

Great question! I'm not really in a position to answer as I met my other half before online dating, but my observations are that because it's so much easier to reach out to girls (or guys), less effort is put into it. Before online dating, just going up to a girl, and talking to her took some effort and nerve. I think that old process helped shape us and was part of our development, and without that process younger people are more insular than before and lack that ability to approach and talk to strangers, which in turn it's shaping the world in what I believe to be a more negative and less inclusive way.1

I think its been for the worse. A discussion on this the other day as well as some other conversations I've had on the subject have shown me it's like fast food. Possible a quick and easy satisfaction of "hunger" but not truly satisfying. Unfortunately many people will never learn, respect or appreciate the art of dating. getting to know someone. As too many just think they can take care of their needs by swiping an image, getting some sex and moving on, similar to that cheeseburger wrapped in paper at the drive through. It took care of the immediate need but more times than not it leaves a bad feeling in your gut. People need to take time, go to the grocery store, find some healthy choices, take them home and get to know various ways to prepare the items for a satisfying AND healthy meal.. or mate.1
