Self confidence dating
Self confidence dating
Put yourself on Tinder, and you might end up with a date—or a crippling case of negative thoughts about yourself.So suggests a new study about the psychological effects of the popular dating app, presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association.
So, here’s a fear 101 lesson: When we are subjected to an experience that causes positive or negative stress, our brains automatically release a dose of stress hormones into the body.Nowadays, it is easier than ever to get a date via free or paid dating sites.There are several dating apps/sites to choose from and all you have to do is download the phone app(s) that take minutes to upload and a few extras to fill in some additional personal info, including pictures that are supposed to depict what we look like and ourselves having a great time to show others what we enjoy, who we are friends with and that we actually have some good personality traits.This fear response is beyond our conscious control.It was designed to keep us safe and survive dangerous situations, but it can be a bit of a hindrance on a date.I want you to imagine a list of sexy mates all in one place, waiting to meet their special someone in hopes of finding what could be "true love."

You begin to feel like a loser, you eventually begin to feel unwanted, you usually begin to feel unattractive or not good enough, maybe you don't have what the other men/women want career wise, they might see you as "too much fun" and not serious enough, you start to internalize rejection and what you once considered yourself as really confident and knowing you are valuable and worthy of love and being loved or wanted by your ideal mate. When others are not reciprocal of our time and attention we automatically begin to lack confidence to try again or reach out to a person of interest.
The fear of being rejected again, also lessens our self confidence and beliefs that we are not worthy of the best mate.
A new survey at the University of North Texas found that singles who used Tinder are more likely to have lower self-esteem and feel unhappy about their looks than non-dating-app users.
When it came to gender, male Tinder users reported lower self-esteem than females.
