    22 Signs You Need To Quit The Dating Game

    Dating fatigue is a real thing.

    1. You use Tinder as a way to exercise your finger rather than as a dating app.

    2. You're either SUPER specific with your settings so you never get matched...

    ...or you have the broadest settings ever because you just don't care any more.

    3. You've been on the dating app for so long, you're starting to find these messages quite funny.

    4. And when it comes to your own opening lines, you just copy and paste "Hey" over and over again.

    5. You don’t bother with a nice profile picture.

    6. Filling out your About Me section is far too much effort.

    7. You're starting to get matched with people you've already dated.

    8. When you do go on a date, you down copious amounts of coffee beforehand.

    9. You only ever do drink dates, because you can't afford dinner any more.

    16. You've become so picky that one tiny hiccup will write off the entire date.

    For example, if their laugh is slightly too loud.

    Or they pick their nose.

    Or they tell you they've never seen "The Lion King".

    17. You used to have date outfits.

    But now you practically show up in your PJs.

    18. You accidentally farted on a first date and you didn’t care one bit.

    19. You don't really bother with good impressions.

    20. You don't bother texting them back either.

    21. You keep your room super messy on purpose so if people do stay the night, they don’t stay long.

    22. And lastly, you always, always end dates with a handshake to avoid this kind of thing:
