Mindful dating com
That was a terrifying prospect for me — if I weren’t on my dating apps, wouldn’t I be alone forever?
I continued to swipe, and continued to be miserable, for about a year.
After a few dates, I stopped using the app and then deleted it completely.
That’s what the dating apps were for me — a way to distract myself from being alone.
Because the more men I had in my life, no matter how fleeting they were, the more I was able to trick myself into feeling less alone.
This was also, unsurprisingly, around the time I landed in therapy for anxiety.
I was desperately unhappy, and was convinced that a relationship would fix everything that was going on in my brain.
