>> No, You're Not Weird! But These May Be the Reasons You're Still Single...


Don't panic! Just stay CALM.

Being on a dating app might seem like a lot! Maybe very overwhelming, stressful, and nervewracking. There are several people on the app, with too many different interests and objectives. Of course, there might be strange people on dating apps, but.... aren't there strange people in real life too? Don't panic, give it a try, someone cool might appear in all that madness...


Be authentic

Calculating results

Most people like others who are real, honest, and authentic. Well, guess what, as much as it includes you, it includes them too! Don't be shy and try to be someone you're not. Imagine you make a profile with pictures that don't represent who you are, or worst: You use pictures of someone you're not! (Catfish alert!). We encourage you to make a profile with information about your real interests, hobbies, personality, and photos that reflect how you look on a day-to-day that also show off your personality.


Control your expectations!

If you're on a dating app, what are you looking for?

Calculating results

Yes, we know that being on a dating app might seem like a whole lot of swiping, swiping, and swiping without finding anything that peaks your interest. But have you ever stopped and wondered what are you truly looking for? What are your expectations? What are you aiming for? Before opening a profile on a dating app, be sure to know what you are looking for... That is, if you're really looking for something, of course. You may also be there just to spend time talking to others or to have fun and that's totally acceptable. However, that's the key: Just know what to expect.


Pick great photos that represent you

This seems to be what people stress about the most! Picking the best picture can be pure chaos because we all wanna look good, attractive, fun, and desired. However, stop for a minute and consider some points: Do these photos reflect who I am? Do these pictures show who I am or show what people want to see of me? Do these pictures make me feel comfortable? We all want to feel accepted, but we encourage you to feel good about yourself, think about it for a bit, and then go for it. It's YOUR time to shine, have fun, date, and feel good. Don't let intrusive thoughts ruin this for you!


Have fun!

Imagine you -finally- get to know someone, have several wonderful chats, and it's time to meet them. You've accepted the date, and you're feeling nervous. GO FOR IT! Take your precautions, perhaps ask for identification and real social media profiles, and then you're good to go and have fun. Do not overthink the situation, though: You're both here for the same reason, and there's nothing to be ashamed of. It's your time to have fun, shine, and do whatever makes you comfortable.
