I’m not even into S&M but playing the casual NSA hookup game is the most masochistic thing I could have possibly done to myself.
Now it’s up to me to attempt to make real connections in the real world. Because through this process I realized the most important thing — that all those apps and sites aren’t real. I always attempted to see the headless torsos as real people, but they’re just the versions of the people they want to be. That’s why the connection online and in-person is often lost in translation: you can’t carry on a relationship — strings attached or not — with someone who doesn’t exist.
I can relate to this article in so many ways. This is actually something that I am currently going through myself, and so it’s great to see that there are other people struggling with this as well. I will have to follow suite and just get rid of these unhealthy apps. I have to work on myself and not worry about what other people think on the superficial apps.
