Is dating app fatigue ruining your relationship?

Last year, The Atlantic explained what so many of us have been feeling in a piece titled: The Rise of Dating App Fatigue.

Why are men so afraid of being independent?

Why are men so insecure in relationships?

Turns out, there are a lot of insecure men out there, who still prefer women who are agreeable and much less ‘challenging’.
