7 Ways to Deal with Dating App Burnout!

For those of you who’ve tried online dating, you probably know that many frustrating things can occur.

You may message prospects with no response or talk to someone a lot and suddenly they stop writing back.

Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed just trying to message multiple people and recalling who they are.

It can be stressful and time intensive.

Dates may misrepresent themselves or stand you up. But it only takes a few good ones to really make a difference in your love life so don’t give up.

On the bright side, many singles today meet online and go on to have long-term relationships and marriage. It’s important to treat dating like a marathon and to learn tips that will help you go the distance. Here are 7:

1. Treat Initial Messaging like a, ‘To Do Item’:

I recommend to my dating coaching clients that they write short messages to 10 people three times a week in 15-minute stints.

Just like you go to the gym for 40 minutes, you can send love boomerangs out into the virtual universe and see what comes back.

2. Use the Pause Button:

This allows prospective daters to know that you’ll be away for a while and then you can resume messaging and dating when you’re ready.

3. Keep Your Life Balanced:

Remember that dating is just one aspect of your life. You have friends, family, work, hobbies, self-care, travel, fun and more to focus upon.

So when you feel like dating is all that you can think about, look at your schedule and spend some time refueling in one of these other areas as well.

4. Practice Great Regular Self-Care:

5. Practice Gratitude:

6. Meet People Offline:

7. Reward Yourself:

You can only do what you can to take action towards your goal. So, reward your efforts (regardless of results) by getting yourself a gift or, treat yourself to a message.

Most of all, don’t give up on finding love. It’ll be worth it.
