I am guilty of doing the same (swiping right) to many, many ladies on dating sites and Maria just made me realize with just a few yet powerful words. The same type of ladies might have swiped right my profile too in return. But one of us can definitely do better like Maria pointed out.
I have no clue how it happens on the women side, but for us men, makeup and sometimes a good professional photographer is all it takes for me to swipe a women to the left.
Unfortunately, that (shopping) behavior seems to reflect upon us meeting in person as well. I have hundreds, if not thousands of such first date stories to testify that sad fact.
None of us takes anyone seriously. That is unacceptable, and disrespectful. But sadly, that is a truth we have to live with. Hopefully people like Maria will keep on using her gift of writing to make us realize and become better individuals like herself.
you swiped right…

Dating apps break my heart. A woman said to me, “You are lucky you look young. You are still marketable”…marketable. When will we stop treating each other like commodites? I have since climbed out of the dating pool. I’d rather drift on the sea. That kind of surfing has the wrong kind of energy.
