Dating without a cellphone
We all have different relationships (and frustrations) with our dating apps, so we're all going to get different things out of a month free of them.
Some of us may use it to take time away from dating, while others may aim to shift our focus on who we're dating or how we're dating.
During this period, you begin building trust and figuring out where the relationship can go in the future.
D, Licensed Psychologist And Founder Of Azimuth Psychological"There's been a lot of research about how mindfulness improves mood and decreases stress.
It’s not like this is an example of couples getting into physical altercations or making verbal threats to each other.
However, the simple act of crossing someone’s boundaries by looking at their personal property without permission is what causes these actions to slip into unhealthy relationship territory.
So, who knows what kind of awesome and potentially influential information you could learn by going app-less in April while you are also improving your mood and decreasing stress." -Koretz"I suggest [my clients] get 'lover sober' by doing a 'dating detox'.
Instead, I have them date themselves — and they make some huge strides in terms of learning about themselves and how (and why) they relate to partners as they do. D., Licensed Psychologist"My advice for someone participating is to get social and look for connection in the real world.
Find time to spend with friends, brush up on your resume, go to the gym more frequently, start writing that blog or book that you’ve dreamed about and create your vision board for attracting that ideal person to your life for when you’re ready to reactivate your profile." - Julie Spira, Online Dating Expert and Digital Matchmaker, Founder of Cyber-Dating Expert Want more of Bustle's Sex and Relationships coverage?
