Research from the University of North Texas suggests that dating apps could be affecting users’ self-esteem and body image

Research from the University of North Texas suggests that dating apps could be affecting users’ self-esteem and body image

It appears that fewer single people are meeting through friends, on blind dates, at work, or a chance get-together. Thanks to technology, you don’t even have to leave your sofa to connect with other singles.

While there are no official statistics, it’s believed that around 4.5 million Australians use online or app dating each year, according to Relationships Australia.

“Dating apps are an opportunity to connect with more people quickly, and from the convenience of our own environment,” says psychologist Natajsa Wagner. “We can use them to get a glimpse of who a person is, before taking the time to meet in person or go on a real-life date.”

This opportunity can present a world of possibility, especially if you have a small, or coupled-up, social network, work long hours or work from home, are a single parent or just want exposure to people you may not otherwise meet.

Dating app Tinder boasts 15% of the Australian population as users – making it the second-most preferred way to meet a new partner (the first being introduced by friends or family)

With app and online dating, people might be considered and discarded in seconds, for example with a quick swipe of a thumb, often based on the way they look in their profile picture.

It found Tinder users were less satisfied with their face and body, felt more shame about their body, and were more likely to compare their appearance to others, when compared with non-users. The researchers concluded that dating apps may be contributing to the worsening mental health of some users.
