Dating can be a tough game for all of us. Lives are so busy these days – people have to juggle work, cleaning, cooking, eating, leading a healthy life, sleeping, socializing – the list goes on. People don’t have time to keep putting themselves out there only to get disappointed. It takes work. Besides selecting the right outfit, people must make themselves up, take off their sweatpants and leave their homes. But date stacking might be the future of dating that everyone needs!
How it All Started
Social media platform TikTok seems to find an ailment to everything these days, and dating is yet another problem with an easy algorithm. Well, not easy, but certainly practical. Date stacking first came from Titkoker Paretay, who went viral with her video of going on three dates in one evening. She spent her entire Friday night juggling one-hour dates with three different people. Her night ended in chaos after date #3 tried kissing her, but she regrets nothing.
People’s Thoughts on Date Stacking
People have tried it, and they’re talking. This kind of dating doesn’t have to involve creating a spreadsheet and documenting everything worth mentioning for every date. No one needs to have proficiency in Excel or a type-A personality to try this kind of dating. You just have to be tired enough of the old style and willing to try something new!
Dating as a Coping Mechanism?
Some people admit date stacking is more than just a practical way to find real love. They confess to using it as a coping mechanism – to forget the rest of the problems in their life. It takes time and keeps you plenty busy, so it’s a great way to focus on different people and your scheduled dates rather than other things that may be going on. Even Paretay, who started the trend, says she had different intentions!
Escaping the Mundane Life
Some people try it out to get away from boredom and loneliness. It’s fun to go on dates with different people but not looking for anything in particular – just wasting time. If you like schedules but still get lonely with work and every other aspect of your life, try the method and find a way to escape it all!
Whether you’re looking for a way to cope with something upsetting that’s going on in your life, or you’re just trying to have a good time through boredom – date stacking may be the perfect method! Schedule one date in the morning and another in the afternoon – see how things develop!
