Unlike what the writer claims, Early disclosure in relationship doesn't work because there is NO bonding. Early Disclosure about personal life will brush off the partner drastically. First they have to build that bonding, then disclosure comes into the picture.

All these notions of God or a so called “Supreme Being” are a figment of your imagination and an expression of your alienation and repressed psyche.
Primitive humans used to worship natural forces and pray to wind, rain, fire…Then they realized it was so stupid so they created Idols and worshiped, scarified and killed each other to honor their human made Idols. After a while it registered to them that lifeless Idols can’t really be source of life, so they created these irrational notions of God. An emotionally unstable dude called Abraham was one of the first ones, he even thought he should kill his own son to please this imaginary God. FYI organized religions are some of the most corrupt, violent and degenerate entities in human history.

Godless people also molest children but there's so few of you faithless people in the world that there's no records or statistics on this.

Read all the accounts of child molestations and child abuse in the church to understand why all those Bible thumping wingnuts are a bunch of sexually repressed lost souls in need of serious therapy.

This article presents a candid and thought-provoking discussion of reasons for your "dating-app fatigue." Understanding a problem must always precede finding a solution and perhaps better understanding this particular dilemma can help us make the adjustments necessary for greater change in the future. There is likely little argument that modern day dating is challenging, but the question is why?

Technology has changed every aspect of the way we do business...and pleasure. Life has become a fast-paced, immediate-gratification, goal-directed process and we've lost a lot of accountability that we used to have for our day-to-day decisions. In a sense, dating has become much like shopping for an inanimate object that we desire. We have easy fast access (and now we don't even have to leave our home) and if we don't like the product, we simply return it. Dating online starts to feel like shopping for the perfect turkey for Thanksgiving.

There is an anonymity with online dating that leads to an objectification of the other person, whose essence is condensed into one picture or one sentence, and perhaps a few demographic facts like height and age. There is also the additional complication of presenting us with an unlimited number of choices. Scientists from many different fields have studied this phenomenon for decades, and have suggested that when we are presented with too many choices, we experience analysis paralysis.

Perhaps this paradox of choice is to blame for our confusion, and perhaps because we are so overwhelmed by too many choices for dating, we end up emotionally disconnecting and invest less in our choices. Swiping left or right has little import, after all, there will always be MANY other, potentially better options.

Here's a nice little (true) and funny story, about how to manipulate these dating services.
The article quotes someone saying: "It only has to work once, theoretically. But ... it feels like you have to put in a lot of swiping to get one good date", but as the story shows, theoretically if you know enough statistics, you could get tens and hundreds of "good dates".
Of course the results could just overwhelm you!
