I’ve been dating online for the better part of the past decade.

So I was early on How About We (RIP), Grouper, Tinder, Hinge, the League, Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel.
Early for an American user on my personal favorite dating app, the French-built Happn.
I joined OKCupid at the ripe young age of 23 when I moved to Brooklyn in 2009, after a particularly negative experience meeting someone the old-fashioned way.
I then found myself on assignment at the media company for which I worked, to research the dating market.As it turns out, maturity of age doesn’t necessitate mature behavior.The most dramatic change in online dating since I started has been the birth of mobile apps, which ultimately led to the feature “swipe right or swipe left.” OKCupid and Tinder were quick to change the face of dating, making it easier than ever to quickly make a microdecision about compatibility.I’ve even drawn my own wireframes and written a manifesto for the dating app I would build. I’m a New Yorker and a self-starter, and, as such, I’m always trying to optimize how I spend my time. In the past year, I decreased my usage of the apps fairly significantly.And most pertinently, I’ve done the work outside of the app sphere to figure out what I personally want and how I want to be in a relationship. A dear friend of mine and fellow tech-centric writer and creative, Lori, coined the term “appstinence,” for when we go through spurts of either deleting the dating apps or not using them at all.but this time, “forever.” Once you swipe left, a match doesn’t show up again (though you can pay to change your mind, sometimes).
