I recently jumped back online, creating profiles on 4 apps. I knew that there was going to be a lot of overwhelm, navigating all the messages and interactions. One day I woke up and there were 30 messages in just one of the apps!
This leads me to the realization that I needed to create some healthy habits in this area of my life, just like I have for other areas.
The first one is this: I delete any messages that just mention my looks. Why? My profile explicitly states that I am a sapiosexual – turn on my mind. If you can’t be bothered to read that and then engage, then I am not interested.
