Forget Dating Apps: People Moving to Twitter, TikTok to Find the Perfect Match, MIT Report States

Many people are now looking for love on dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, and the majority of them end up exhausted or burned out as a result. As a consequence, some of the most recent matchmakers have decided to take things into their own hands. They are using Twitter and TikTok, as well as some old-school methods such as newsletters and emails, to find their ideal match.

According to an MIT Technology Review, people are returning to old patterns. Consider Katherine D. Morgan for example. She was “super burnt out” with dating apps since they didn’t make sense to her.

So, in July, she began a Twitter thread in which she asked people to respond with a photo of themselves and information about what they were looking for. It took off, and many people in her hometown of Portland, Oregon, found dates and even short-term relationships through it.

Randa Sakallah launched Hot Singles in December of last year in an attempt to solve her dating issues. She used Substack to create an email newsletter. Each profile on the platform includes the user’s name, sexual orientation, interests, and a few photos of those looking for dates. The appeal of Hot Singles, according to Sakallah, was that only one person’s profile was sent by email every Friday. This saved users time and allowed them to recognize a single person as a human being rather than an algorithmically generated number.

The most significant issue with dating apps is the dizzying array of options. They add diversity, but they can also be overwhelming. As a result, more and more people are turning to TikTok videos to find their soulmates. Alexis Germany, a matchmaker, tried TikTok during the coronavirus outbreak. There’s also the matter of geography and distance to consider. People are less picky about when and where they meet now, thanks to the pandemic and the concept of remote working. “What makes you think your person is in your city?” Germany says. “If they’re a car ride away or a short plane ride away, it could work.”
