Dan Hawkins is tired of using dating apps to meet someone. He's been on them for several years and describes the experience as "removed." He says the swipe-right or swipe-left nature of many of the apps means people are judging a person based on very little, a photo and a short bio. "I was looking at strangers with no context," he said, adding that he didn't enjoy the short online chat ahead of meeting in person. According to research from Stanford sociologist Michael Rosenfeld, in 2017, 39 per
