Bad things about internet dating
About 1,300 (mostly) college-age students were asked about their Tinder use, body image and self-esteem.
Last year, released a volunteer-based study on recent dating trends.
Millennials were 125% more likely to say they feel addicted to dating.
Men were 97% more likely to feel addicted to dating than women, but 54% of women felt more burned out by the process."People who self-described as having really addictive-style behaviors toward the internet and cellphones scored much higher on depression and anxiety scales," said University of Illinois psychology professor Alejandro Lleras, who conducted a study in 2016 that linked technology addiction to anxiety and depression.
Although the survey wasn't scientific, the results were revealing.
Almost one in six singles (15%) reported feeling addicted to the online process of looking for a date.
