Hello fellow redditors!
I am someone who is currently available within the dating market, and of course dating apps is contemporarily one of the most convenient ways in order to meet new people. However, I am too scared to use dating apps because I pretty much fear people that I know finding my profile and somewhat make fun of my profile and also view me as desperate.
I have some friends talk about how they had seen an acquaintance's dating app profile and sometimes make fun of them because of it, so I really don't want that to happen to me in some sense by my own acquaintances.
Is there anyway where I can come out of this mentality? I feel like this is hindering me a lot within my dating life.
