We evaluate each other immediately. Wait, she's got a lazy eye. I don't like that, I'm going to back on the dating app and I am going to swipe for somebody who's perfect. You see the dating apps were actually created because people in general are always searching for perfection.
Then why are you constantly swiping and looking for somebody who is perfect?
