A study published in 2011 found that being socially rejected activates the same parts of the brain that physical pain does.
That means that opening oneself up on dating apps—where you can be rejected faster than ever—can have a real impact on well-being. Millennials were most likely to say that they felt addicted to online dating, while 54% of women using the dating service said that they felt burned out by the process.
“Although current body image interventions primarily have been directed toward women, our findings suggest that men are equally and negatively affected by their involvement in social media,” said Strübel.
The pain of being rejected in online dating scenarios can also sting.
Personally I think any kind of trait assessment in selection of a partner is shallow.While there is still debate over the merits of tech addiction, one study published in 2016 linked technology addiction with depression and anxiety.
