There is no denying the fact that dating is hard. And contrary to popular belief, it's even harder on dating apps, where conversations feel more mechanical with each passing day.
Simply put, the dating app fatigue is real! And perhaps that explains why, Twitter's latest trend is all about deleting those dating apps, to find love the 'old-fashioned' way.
The only catch is, most, if not all, of these 'old-fashioned' ways, are a mix of famous rom-com plotlines and bizarre scenarios:

deleting my dating apps because i want to meet someone the old fashioned way, dying for them in battle, slowly corporealizing over hundreds of years to become an all-powerful ghost king, and finally revealing myself by mysteriously walking them through a forest raining blood— betts (@puqicore) June 13, 2021

This just goes to show how difficult dating has actually become. But I am more than happy to support this trend, delete those apps, and wait for my dupatta to get stuck in someone's kurta!
