An ex-boyfriend once told me that when it comes to love, Sagittarius are always looking for someone better, and he felt like that was definitely true of me. At the time, I didn’t have the heart to tell him that was only the case because I was dating his dumb ass. But I will admit that casually dating and going out with many people is appealing to me because it lets me weigh my options and get to know someone better before I commit.
I am not a serial dater. I guess that’s all comparative, but I have probably been on less than 20 dates with guys I have met on an app. However, I have multiple friends who are now married to men they met that way, and I think it can honestly be a great way to widen the dating pool, especially once you get out of college. Yes, there are horror stories, and it can be a little awkward especially at first, but it can also be really fun and who knows? You could meet the love of your life. At the least, you will have some great stories. To help you out in your dating app quest, I’ve compiled some tips and advice. And don’t worry, if dating five guys at once sounds exhausting (and it can be) you can totally just take it slow and these tips will still be super helpful.
This might seem obvious to some of you. To others, it's going to seem really harsh. If you asked me a year or two ago, I probably would've said it sounded harsh, but I've gotten to that point in my life where my bullshit tolerance is at like a 2 out of 10 and I'm done apologizing for it. I have dated a good amount of people. Some have been lovely, some have been terrible, some have been in that grey zone I like to call "fixer-uppers." My biggest flaw when it comes to relationships is probably hanging in there way too long. I'm always worried I'll regret cutting it off. I have frequently said things like "but what if he changes and I broke up with him and it's too late" or "I know deep-down he's such a good guy; he just needs to get stuff together."
