Online dating and true love - is it possible? Long gone are the days when meeting the eyes of the stranger at the restaurant or a bar created a spark that made you weak at the knees. It still happens - but very rarely. Because the way things are - you are probably swiping left and right as we speak. We are less and less trusting our own intuition and are more and more putting our hearts in the hands of technology and its algorithms. But hey - not criticizing. That's just the way things are and the best you can do is equip yourself with some online dating success statistics to find out if online dating is really for you when it comes to finding true love.
You might not know this about me, but I've struggled with self-love for years. I think the moment I've hit puberty, was the moment when I realized that I could be a better version of myself than I already was. Hidden behind my sunny disposition were dark clouds of insecurities and low self-esteem. I've never told my friends anything, because I've wanted to "at least appear confident," while deep down I've felt unworthy and inadequate. Middle school and high school years were a period when I've hit an all-time low.
Heart is a fickle little thing. One moment it’s all in, next moment it’s all out. They say that “all is fair in love and war” and sometimes it seems like our heart is mercilessly waging a war on our mind and vice versa. It is a true struggle, a constant push and pull. Heart wants what it wants and our judgment is clouded, because we are so in love with an idea.
Are you romantic to the point that it’s hopeless? If yes - you are in the right place when it comes to the matters of heart, but are probably finding it hard to find your place somewhere in the real world. Expectations and reality don’t stand next to each in a dictionary and sadly enough - they are strangers when it comes to our love life as well. Being a hopeless romantic, you are somewhat of a romantic renegade.
