I was recently on the dating app Bumble when I came across the profile of an attractive middle-aged man, a few years younger than I am. He was born on the East Coast and had a big dog, which I liked. This guy was far from unusual. Women write it too. But according to Tinder, which looked at the profiles of its American users earlier this year, heterosexual men were three times more likely to use these phrases than heterosexual women.
Profiles of gay and lesbian users included the phrases much less often. Another dating app, OkCupid, examined the profiles of all its users in the United States without separating for sexual orientation and found that men over all were 10 percent more likely to say this than women.
They also found that 47 percent of millennial men said they were looking for no drama or something drama-free in their profiles, as did 25 percent of Gen X and 12 percent of baby boomer men. I understand that people want joy, laughter and happiness in their relationships.
I want that too. Are they looking for a woman who never gets angry or afraid or sad, who never worries about her family or struggles in her job? Who would want to be with such a person? Life is full of drama. I know. After 23 years of marriage, I went through an unexpected and painful divorce. I had to sell our family home and move to a rental.
Then I lost my beloved dog, Spike — which, weirdly, felt the worst, coming on top of everything else. Life got messy. But I know many people, including men, who have suffered far worse. Carbino told me. Vanessa Valenti, co-founder of the feminist website Feministing, had a different take. But sexist behavior exists offline, just like it does on dating apps. This is simply another medium. In my opinion, that would create a culture of pretty disastrous relationships. He said that the growth that from looking honestly at your challenges and problems — in other words, from being vulnerable — also makes people better partners.
Epstein said. Sometimes, love grows sweeter in contrast to the hardships. We live on a planet whose climate is warming rapidly. We wait in fear of the next mass shooting. We have a president whose tweets elevate our heart rates daily. In a American Psychological Association survey, 69 percent of respondents reported that the future of the nation caused them stress — six percentage points higher than the year before. This precariousness seems like all the more reason to find a partner who can face the challenges and roll with them. Other days are steeped in joy. Laura Hilgers Lhilgers is a freelance journalist.
