I had plans to throw in a little Twitter, listen to podcasts, and read travel blogs and follow Instagrams for when I needed to be mindless.I planned to keep up more with friends and family, including calling my grandparents.Although this roller coaster has been never-ending I never once stepped off of it.From time to time it slowed down to pick up passengers only to let them off quickly thereafter, but in two and a half years I personally never disembarked.I felt like every person I met in real life did not match up to my app-based expectations of them and was constantly disappointed.The other issue I kept encountering was a general lack of interest and caring—I'd accidentally forget to respond to a prospective date for five days or someone I'd gone on one or two casual dates with would disappear off the face of the Earth with no explanation.While I can't say my dating life skyrocketed—maybe the opposite—it was kind of liberating to not be thoughtlessly scanning potential suitors whilst bored at work, and not nixing people solely based on some stupid quote in their 'About Me' section.

I didn't so much decide to stop using online-dating apps as simply forgot to check any of them. The result was more free time, more time spent with friends, and less time worrying if I was coming up with flirty yet clever responses to strangers' messages or had picked cute enough profile pictures.

It seemed like I had been on endless 'dates' where the men were smart, courteous, and interested in me, but they ghosted immediately after I hooked up with them (usually the third date).

Since I have a lot of confidence in my hookup game, I realized they were waiting it out for easy sex and weren't trying to find a compatible partner, no matter how genuine they seemed at first.

Instead, that stomach-in-your-throat, scream-‘til-it-hurts feeling prevailed. Until one day I decided that it was time to take a real break from online dating sites and apps.

On this day I decided to take a month-long hiatus from these sites which has turned into a five month hiatus (and counting…).

Attention is nice, but dating myself is so much better.
