Serial monogamy should be more of a red flag than gaps in dating history:

“Dating experts […] believe it’s more of a red flag to jump from relationship to relationship than it is to be single for a long time. Monique Kelley, author of the blog Confessions of a Serial Dater in L.A., explains that going from one relationship to the next sends a message that ‘you don’t value the true meaning of a significant relationship.’ ‘It also means that you have areas that need to be addressed, and you’re seeking validation from the outside instead of looking within,’ she continues.

On the other hand, she admits, ‘There comes a point when you get stuck in your ways’ as a single person. ‘They put the blossoming relationship on the back burner or squeeze in time instead of prioritizing the possibility,’ she says. Other bad habits include staying in contact with toxic exes, making excuses for being single and a general discomfort with being vulnerable.”

Pandemic Tinder is good?

“[A]ll the aspects that turned me off from Tinder in 2013 were revealed in a new light. The digital swarms of people were exhilarating. The novelty of unknown worlds full of unknown friends were intriguing. Even the game-like aspect just became fun — because I wasn’t using Tinder as a means to an end. I wasn’t trying to go on a lot of dates during COVID. I was treating Tinder as an experience itself, and I think a lot of other users were too. People seemed to genuinely want to engage in conversation. There were fewer monosyllabic responses — no one was just saying ‘hey.’ I learned about what strangers were reading, what they were watching, what they were listening to. Suddenly it was all the thrill of flirting at a party or a bar. All the lonely people, and there I was nestled there among them. And sure, there are still jerks, and bad conversationalists, and people who ghost you and leave you hanging. But those are also people you could encounter in a crowded room on a Saturday night.”
