Psychologist's comment

“Tinder is suitable for people who are active, travel a lot, love to find new friends. We can say that this application is similar to Instagram: you just like the photos you like, and with such minimal effort, the acquaintance is tied up automatically. With a targeted search, it is quite easy to find a couple, and the interlocutors are very active in communicating through other instant messengers or immediately agree on a personal meeting.You need to understand that a serious relationship can also start from now on.

The main problem of young people now is the syndrome of "eternal search." A quick first contact gives rise to the feeling that you can always find someone else. There is a chance to fall into a sense of flow and a certain dependence on "matches", especially since such a gaming choice greatly influences the self-esteem of any person. ”

Yep! suggest joint activities

Walk, sport, lunch, coffee - whatever you choose, yep! will find you a company. The mobile application is focused on meetings "here and now", so the placed application is valid for only an hour.

Psychologist's comment

“We can’t be joyful 99% of the time, life is so arranged. Periodically, a person falls into apathy, feels lonely - this is normal. But if a bad mood has become permanent, something needs to be done. For a start, you can try to unwind and switch, for example, to communicate with an interesting person. If the depressed state has become the background of life, you should consult a specialist. ”
